Arlene Foster hits back on 'imported' shipyard jobs

The enterprise minister has said she thought it was "wrong for us to say that we only want jobs in Northern Ireland for Northern Ireland people".

Arlene Foster was replying to an assembly question from David McNarry of UKIP about "imported labour jobs" at Harland and Wolff in east Belfast.

She said that of 600 temporary jobs at the shipyard, 200 were filled by European workers.

Her remarks follow a row over posters that appeared in parts of Belfast.
