Following her meeting Ms Villiers said:

At this morning’s meeting with NI business leaders, I briefed them on the talks process and listened carefully to their concerns about how the current impasse is having a real impact on the Northern Ireland economy. It was clear from our discussions that action is overdue to get Northern Ireland’s finances on a stable footing. The creation of more jobs, a growing private sector and an economy that supports innovation and enterprise are within reach but they need to be supported by a functioning and effective Executive.
