UUP councillor Derek Hussey raised the issue of the differential in debt burdens between the two predecessor councils at the first meeting of the new Derry City and Strabane District Council.

Mr Hussey asked if the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) will “report on the major debt burdern differential with the two councils coming together.”

Chief Executive John Kelpie said the matter would be dealt with in a review this Autumn and that it will also be considered at forthcoming committee meetings during the Summer.
