Following on his question regarding how many East Belfast nursery schools were oversubscribed for 2015-16, on 12 May Lyttle asked Education Minister John O'Dowd how he intends to improve early education provision.



In response to the announcement that Northern Ireland's hospitality sector has the potential to create up to 5,000 new jobs over the next decade, Lyttle has voiced his excitement and support for the burgeoning industry and its initiatives.


As the Alliance Regional Development spokesperson, Lyttle expressed his concern for the level of cuts that have been imposed on the Disability Action Transport Scheme by the Minister for Regional Development. The level of funding they receive from DRD has been cut by 21% for this financial year. There will also be a 100% cut to group service funding and to mobility centre funding.



It is Dementia Awareness Week from 18-24 May, and Age NI is honouring the occasion by highlighting the many services it provides to older people living with dementia. I would encourage any older constituents or family members of older people to read more about Age NI resources at www.ageni.org/dementia.
