UUP DELEGATION TO MEET CHIEF CONSTABLE OVER SECURITY FEARS

UUP leader Mike Nesbitt to meet Matt Baggott

THE Ulster Unionist Party is to meet PSNI Chief Constable Matt Baggott later today over the security situation in the province.

The delegation will be led by party leader and Strangford MLA Mike Nesbitt.

Mr Nesbitt said the UUP had “grave concerns” about terrorist activity.

They will be meeting Justice Minister David Ford later in the week.

Monday’s delegation will also include Policing Board member Ross Hussey and justice spokesman Tom Elliott.

“We will impress on both the chief constable and justice minister that there is an absolute need to have a proper security plan in place that will deal with the increased terrorist activity throughout Northern Ireland,” Mr Nesbitt said.

“It is also vital that individuals, whether it is those who are current members of the security services, former members or indeed the wider public who are potential targets for these terrorists, are given the proper access to security measures and assistance from the police and authorities.”
