What discussions she has had with Cabinet colleagues on city deals in Northern Ireland.

Mr Shailesh Vara

We have made a clear manifesto commitment to work with a restored Executive and other stakeholders towards a comprehensive and ambitious set of city deals across Northern Ireland.

We have announced our intention to open negotiations for a Belfast Region City Deal, and the Secretary of State continues to engage with Cabinet colleagues to progress this vital growth agenda for Northern Ireland.
