"Premature Welfare Information A Waste of Tax Payer's Money" says Brady

Hitting out at the costly production of premature Welfare changes information by the Department of Social Development Sinn Féin Welfare Spokesperson Mickey Brady MLA said:

"For resources to be wasted on the production of information about welfare changes that haven't been agreed in the Assembly is at best premature and most certainly a waste of public money.

"I've raised this issue at the Social Development Committee as we are some way from knowing what the final details of any welfare bill will look like and this is simply putting the cart before the horse.

"Sinn Féin have also raised our concerns that the production of this premature information serves only to frighten vulnerable people with speculation on the possible outcomes that could affect them.

"We will be continuing our work to have this Tory Welfare Reform agenda changed to protect our most vulnerable citizens and therefore scaring people with projections of often the worst case scenario is absolutely unacceptable"
