  2. Six counties cuts condemned

    N Ireland: Political leaders in the six counties accused Whitehall on Wednesday of reneging on financial commitments and playing fast and loose with thousands of jobs in the region.

    First Minister Peter Robinson and Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness said the cuts unveiled by British Chancellor George Osborne amounted to a £4 billion loss over the next four years and could lead to 50,000 job losses.

    Mr McGuinness claimed the Con-Dem coalition had reneged on an £18 billion investment pledge made by the British government in the 2006 St Andrews political deal that established the power-sharing administration at Stormont.
