“I will not step aside” – Foster

The North's First Minister Arlene Foster is resisting calls to stand aside in order to facilitate an independent investigation into the Renewable Heating Initiative Scheme.

In Derry at the weekend, Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams said a process must be established to get to the truth.

Former DUP Minister Jonathon Bell, who has now been suspended, accused his party of keeping open a scheme that was corrupt, inefficient, and likely to cost the taxpayers over £400 million.

Ms Foster is set to make a statement to the Assembly today, but remains adamant she will not be stepping down.............
