Traders meeting over Belfast City Hall flag decision

THE Belfast Chamber of Trade and Commerce has invited traders in the city to a meeting next week to discuss falling revenue.

The meeting is being hosted in the Europa Hotel on Wednesday, January 16 at 6pm.

Chamber President Joe Jordan said the meeting would debate the downturn in trade prevailing due to “Belfast City Council’s lack of recognition of the needs of the Belfast business community.”

He urged all businesses in the city to send a representative to express their views during the debate.

On Friday, Belfast City Council announced a rates freeze for the first time ever for hard pressed businesses who have lost trade since the start of the Union flag protest.

The Confederation of British Industries (CBI) estimate that since December 3, traders have lost £15 in lost revenue.
