Home care scandal to be raised in Dáil - Ó Caoláin

13 December, 2010 - by Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin TD


Sinn Féin Dáil leader Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin described as 'appalling' the revelations about the abuse of older people in their homes in the Prime Time investigation. 

He said:

"These appalling revelations demand immediate answers and immediate action from the Minister for Health & Children. I will be raising this scandal in the Dail tomorrow and be calling for a special debate and real assurance to older people that they will not be prey to those whose only motive is greed and profit, a situation brought about by the Government's policy of privatising health and social services."
