Northern Ireland finance minister welcomes corporation tax decision

Finance Minister Simon Hamilton has welcomed the announcement by chancellor George Osborne that corporation tax could be set by the Northern Ireland Executive.

He added that he was disappointed that there was no final decision made and that conditions were attached to the devolvement of powers.

In Wednesday's Autumn Statement, Mr Osborne said any decision on devolving corporation tax to Northern Ireland will be dependent on the outcome of the all-party talks.
