Glenfaba MHK and former government minister David Anderson says he does not believe there is a compelling case to sell off Knockaloe farm.
He said there was a lot of concern in his constituency about what would happen if the site was sold – and argued there should be no deals with individual parties without going through a formal expressions of interest process.
And he added: ‘You can only sell off the family silver once. I see it as an asset. It shouldn’t be sold unless there is a compelling case to do so.’
