Over 90 new public service jobs to be created in Derry

Confirmation that over 90 new jobs are being created in the Pension Credit service in Derry is being welcomed in the city .

Foyle MLA Pat Ramsey says the news will cushion the blow of finding out 300 pharmaceutical jobs which Derry was bidding for have gone to Tralee instead.

Mr Ramsey says Environment Minister Alex Atwood is promising to fast-track the planning process, and get the jobs into the city as quickly as possible.

He says this will be of particular interest to young people who currently work in Belfast but want to move back to the city.............
