Sinn Féin ensure Assembly recall to debate Tory cuts
Sinn Féin Chief Whip Carál Ní Chuilín MLA has submitted the required number of names today to ensure the recall of the Assembly on Monday the 25th of October.
The recall will be to debate the pressing concerns regarding the impact of the British Government Comprehensive Spending Review.
Speaking today Ms Ní Chuilín said:
“Sinn Fein have been successful in having the Assembly recalled next week to debate yesterdays cuts by the Tory Government.
“The protection of our jobs, of those who are vulnerable, of our health and education systems, and indeed the long term prospects of the economy are much too important to leave to another day. The British Governments proposals affect us all and our constituents right now.
“We must present a united front from the Assembly and make a stand against these cuts and press for real economic levers to determine what happens with our own economy.
“It is not good enough that the British Tory coalition, who have absolutely no-one elected in the North, dictate what form our economy will take.” ENDS
