Fianna Fáil Spokesperson on Foreign Affairs and Border Region Development Brendan Smith has congratulated Theresa Villiers on her appointment and Northern Secretary following the General Election in the UK.
Deputy Smith commented: “I want to congratulate Theresa Villiers on her re-appointment to David Cameron’s government as Northern Secretary and wish her well in the months ahead. Both Micheál Martin and myself have had a number of opportunities to engage with Ms. Villiers and these meetings have been positive and productive.
“There is much work that remains to be done in the North on the Stormont House Agreement and Fianna Fáil will be seeking an early meeting with Ms. Villiers to highlight a number of issues of concern to us.
“I look forward to continuing to work with Ms. Villiers and meeting her again in due course.”
