In recent years the Government have announced a raft of schemes to invest in Northern Ireland, including the UK Shared Prosperity and Community Renewal Funds meant to replace EU ‘Structural Funds’ following Brexit. This comes as Invest NI have said they are suspending funding for new projects. They had received £23m a year from EU funding.

The session is the fifth oral evidence session of the Committee’s Investment in Northern Ireland inquiry.

In the most recent session of the inquiry, MPs scrutinised the impact of City Deals where they heard concerns regarding the lack of UK Government engagement with bodies in Northern Ireland and the lack of investment in rural communities.
