Brady hears of human impact of Tory welfare cuts

29 October, 2014 - by Mickey Brady

Sinn Féin MLA Mickey Brady has said lessons must be learned from the disastrous impact of Tory welfare cuts in Britain.

Speaking after attending a NICVA conference on welfare cuts, Mr Brady said;

"This was an informative and useful event on the impact of the Tory-led government's welfare cuts agenda.

"Speakers from England and Scotland explained the devastating impact the roll-out of these cuts have already had on communities there.

"It is abundantly clear that the Universal Credit system is simply not working.

"While this conference heard about the economic cost of the implementation of these cuts in Britain, more importantly we also heard of the human cost.

"Communities have been devastated and families driven deeper into poverty.

"Sinn Féin is not prepared to let the same situation unfold here and we remain totally opposed to the Tory welfare cuts."
