Sinn Féin anti-Lariam motion passed by Dáil
Sinn Fein Defence spokesperson Aengus Ó Snodaigh has welcomed the passing of his Dáil motion this evening to end the use of Lariam by the Defence Forces.
The motion passed this evening without a vote after the government decided not to oppose it.
Teachta Ó Snodaigh said;
“This is a very welcome development and I want to thank all the deputies who contributed to the debate this evening.
“It is now vitally important that the government acts promptly on this motion and uses the alternative anti-malaria drugs that other armies use and also begin addressing the legacy of ill health for many who were issued Lariam in the past.”
