Sinn Féin Social Protection spokesperson Aengus Ó Snodaigh TD has pledged his party’s full support to the campaign for equality budgeting in Ireland which launched an information booklet today.

Speaking after the launch Deputy Ó Snodaigh said;

“The Equality Budgeting Campaign aims to put equality at the centre of the budget making process through the introduction of audits and impact assessments of policy proposals.

“It is an approach that is fully supported by Sinn Féin as it helps reduce inequality and the impact of the budget on disadvantaged groups, low earners and traditional working class areas.

“I would encourage the government to take the proposals of the campaign group on board and I would like to congratulate the group on the production of the booklet launched today”
