Blair asked to bring Britannia to Waterfront

Alliance Party, Chief Whip, Alderman Sean Neeson, has asked the government to consider Belfast as a permanent home of the Royal Yacht Britannia after she is decommissioned next month. Mr Neeson says, “I made the appeal when I met the Prime Minister on Monday, and did not receive a negative response. Obviously to make such a bid would require significant financial backing, as well as manpower resources. Time is important and it is my intention to contact relevant individuals and organisations in the near future.

“Belfast is the natural location because of the Waterfront Development, and our maritime heritage, and I believe that a vast number of people in Northern Ireland would back this development.”
