Gerry Adams TD responds to Burton remarks on social housing
Responding to remarks by Tánaiste Joan Burton in Milan this evening, Sinn Féin Leader Gerry Adams said:
"Today in the Dáil, when I raised the need for Government to take an initiative on the issue of social housing in the Budget, as proposed by the ESRI, and when I commended Sinn Féin proposals to do this, the Taoiseach dismissed the suggestion.
"Now, the Tánaiste has echoed my remarks.
"Homeless families and others facing distress due to the housing situation, do not need statements, the need action which would deal not only with homelessness and the housing crisis but assist construction workers and the economy."
