STOP PRESS: Shandwick denies Times report
Shandwick has denied claims made in the Times this week that the
Government has suspended payment for a project the agency handled to
promote last month’s tour of the US by politicians from Northern
Ireland. First minister David Trimble and secretary of State Mo Mowlam
were touring 11 US cities to raise inward investment for Ulster.
Shandwick’s UK regional businesses chief executive, John Gerrie, said
the agency had yet to submit its final invoices for the project.
Shandwick is awaiting independent media evaluation of the work.
