MHK fears Sefton bailout will harm Government

Thu, 25 Apr 2013

Earlier this week the Chief Minister was forced to defend the Council of Minister’s decision to provide financial assistance to the group which has debts of over £70 million.

Calling it a matter of "national interest” Allan Bell said the fallout from letting the group go to the wall would be detrimental to the Island.
