Driving growth after May

By Clive Bleasdale and Patricia Grinye | 06 February 2015

The Parliamentary General Election and the Local Elections will be upon us soon. Issues relating to steps to aid recovery of the economy, infrastructure road and rail links and growth in employment rates across the country are likely to be at the heart of the pre election debate.
