Suzy in the City: LOBBY GROUP WANT 'EURO YES'.

Byline: SUZY JAGGER

YET another pro-Treaty of Nice lobby group has emerged from Ireland's business community.

In a bid to force a turnaround of last year's referendum rejection of European Union expansion plans, a band of employees at Dublin's International Financial Services centre have got together to put pressure on the electorate ahead of next month's second nationwide poll on the issue. The "IFSC for Yes" group plan to raise the issue of jobs at their riverside base during a series of debates on Nice and will campaign among the business community to ensure a high voter turnout in support of the treaty. Their first meeting will be at the IFSC later this week, when Tanaiste and Enterprise, Trade and Employment Minister Mary Harney will address the group. Only last week Ms Harney repeated the government's view that an Irish Yes vote is vital to continue attracting crucial American investment.

Willie Slattery, chief executive of Deutsche International Ireland and president of the Financial Services Industry Association, is the chairman of the new group.
