According to Sammy Gardiner MLA, the UUP position is:
"Health has been protected in England and Wales. The Ulster Unionist Party welcome this announcement and stresses that the same principle must be the case in Northern Ireland."
According to David McNarry earlier this week (still not on the UUP website) described the UUP position as more nuanced:
"Narrow departmental priorities cannot be allowed to usurp Northern Ireland plc’s priorities...All research suggests that front-line health services are at the head of the public’s list of public service delivery which should be protected."
Which is it ring fence the lot or protect front-line services?
