Ó Snodaigh to reveal results of survey on social welfare cuts

30 November, 2010 - by Aengus Ó Snodaigh TD


Over the past two weeks Sinn Féin members have been conducting a survey at Dublin dole queues and post offices. With well approximately 200 respondents the survey reveals the extent to which families are struggling and the extent to which people are being pushed into the hands of money lenders.

The research findings will be presented by Sinn Féin Spokesperson on Social Protection Aengus Ó Snodaigh TD this Thursday at 11.45am at the gates of Leinster House.

Speaking in advance of the launch he said:

“I expect that this survey will demonstrate in very real terms just how unaffordable the bank-bail out and IMF/EU loan is for ordinary Irish people.

“The government keeps insisting that the burden of the banking fall-out must be shared by everyone. I am saying that it simply cannot and should not be shared by those on social welfare and low incomes. The burden should be shouldered by those who own it i.e. the bank bondholders.” ENDS
