Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness has met Derry Chamber of Commerce Chief Executive Sinead McLaughlin to discuss the possible expansion of the University of Ulster Magee campus.

“There is no doubt that the future economic development of the city is connected with the expansion of Magee campus so it is essential that we work together to see that expansion delivered,” he said.

Yesterday’s meeting was helpful in bringing the economic arguments for expansion together and looking at ways how we can work together on it, he said.

He intends to raise the issue with Department of Employment and Learning Minister Stephen Farry who has recently commented on it. The expansion is “a Programme for Government commitment and I am determined to see it delivered”, he added.
