CONCERNS have been raised that the biscuit provision at council meetings held in Strabane is superior to that of Derry’s offering.
The issue was raised at a meeting of Derry City and Strabane District Council’s Environment and Regeneration Committee, held in Strabane.
The two councils merged in 2015 under the Review of Public Administration (RPA), with the meetings now split between the Guildhall Chamber and the council offices at the Derry Road in Strabane.
At the meeting, it emerged that at committee meetings held at the Strabane council offices, three biscuits are contained in the single packets which are provided along with the tea and coffee.
The biscuits provided include shortbread, digestives and bourbon creams.
However, it was then pointed out that only biscuit is contained in the biscuits provided at the Guildhall meetings, which prompted shouts of ‘Inequality’ from one local councillor.
