Ulster Unionist Party Leader, Mike Nesbitt MLA, says that DUP MLA, Mr Jimmy Spratt knows what he has to do following publication of the official Hansard report from the Committee of the Office of First Minister and deputy First Minister which took place on Wednesday 26 June 2013.
Mr Nesbitt said:
“In OFMdFM Committee on Wednesday Jimmy Spratt said, ‘we will see whether it is on the record in the Hansard report’ in relation to words he uttered during comments about opponents of the Maze project.
“Hansard has now been published and is very clear. During a comment from DUP MLA, Brenda Hale saying, ‘there is no local opposition to the Maze or the buildings within it’, Mr Spratt is quoted as saying ‘Except the nutters’.
“Mr Spratt now knows what he has to do. The ball is in his court.”
