I dtuaisceart na hÉireann chuir Sinn Féin bac ar an Bhille Leasa agus ar na ciorruithe atá na Tóraithe ag iarraidh a bhrú ar na daoine is leochailí.
The Westminster government are attempting to cut social welfare payments to children and adults with disabilities and the long term sick. This dossier demonstrates how in December 2014, at Stormont House, we secured agreement to protect the vulnerable and safeguard current and future claimants under the control of the Executive. This agreement was reneged upon by other parties. Sinn Féin continues to campaign against Tory cuts to social welfare in order to protect against poverty and in the interests of our local economy.
The Tory government’s austerity agenda is the single greatest threat to the people and political institutions of the North. In this 2015 Westminster Election Manifesto we set out our economic and social priorities.
Since 2007, successive Sinn Féin agriculture ministers have recognised the vital role of agriculture in the economic and community life of this island with our commitment to supporting all farmers and our rural citizens.
We continue to lead the way by delivering sustainability for our rural communities, viability for our family farms and developing basic services across rural Ireland.
