Measuring the Possible Effects of N Ireland Human Rights Record on the Attraction of Investment

Invest Northern Ireland did not have the information requested.

Dear Invest Northern Ireland,

Has any research yet been commissioned or completed into whether or not the various, widely known and long standing, NICS Human Rights , Equality, Freedom of Speech and Psychiatric Injury crises play any part in the province’s failure to attract Investment?

Have, for instance potential Investors ever commented or expressed Ethical or MacBride concerns about Note and File Only Orders?

Yours faithfully,

AIDAN QUINN

Dear FOI Invest Northern Ireland,
Don't worry. Note and File Only requirements are challenging for us all.
Rest assured there is absolutely no reflection on the unfortunate staff involved.
Such staff are very much seen as victims too.

Good Luck. I wish you well. Indeed I do. We all do. Civil servants are worth it.

Yours sincerely,

AIDAN QUINN
