Sinn Féin call for reversal of uniform cut - Maskey

6 July, 2017 - by Alex Maskey

Sinn Féin MLA Alex Maskey has branded a proposed £3 million reduction for school uniform grants as an attack on children and families from deprived communities.

The West Belfast MLA commented:

"This proposed reduction is an attack on children and families from deprived communities and a further result of Tory austerity cuts.

"Since the Tories came into power we have seen over a billion cut from the North's block grant.

"The DUP in their support for Theresa May's Tory government has handed them a blank cheque for their cuts and a Tory Brexit.

"I have asked for urgent meetings with both the Education Authority and the Department and will be calling on them to reverse this cut immediately."
