Shailesh Vara – 2022 Comments on First Visit as Northern Ireland Secretary

The comments made by Shailesh Vara, the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, on 8 July 2022.

It was fantastic to visit the Prince’s Trust on my first visit to Northern Ireland as Secretary of State today and learn more about how the charity supports young people by developing their confidence and the skills needed to succeed through education, training and employment.

As we build a fairer, more equal, and tolerant society in Northern Ireland, the Government remains committed to increasing respect, understanding and reconciliation between communities in Northern Ireland, and helping to build a better environment for future generations.
