Business leaders criticise lack of Stormont meetings

Business leaders in the North have criticised the power-sharing Executive's failure to hold a meeting for several months.

The Stormont Executive has failed to meet since June due to a row between Sinn Féin and the DUP over the devolution of policing and justice powers.

The Confederation of British Industry says the economy and the construction sector in particular badly need confidence-building measures that could be approved by Stormont.

It says available capital is not being spent on building projects and it could be lost forever if they are not authorised.
