“Nothing interests people like local news and people have a real affinity and connection with their local paper.

“For many, it provides a platform and voice on issues that matter to them.

“These newspapers have experienced a significant loss of income as a result of the pandemic.

 

 

NI rates holiday “demonstrates the importance we place” on the role of newspapers.

“And I am pleased the Executive agreed to my proposal to extend the rates holiday as it demonstrates the importance we place on their role.

“It will help ease the pressures our local newspapers face and will ensure they can continue to be part of the backbone of our local communities,” he added.

The rates holiday is part of £216million of Covid-19 funding and over £75million of routine January monitoring funding which is being allocated to support businesses and a range of sectors.
