Taoiseach’s comments deeply insulting to those suffering homelessness - Gerry Adams TD

11 November, 2017 - by Gerry Adams

Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams TD has described Taoiseach Leo Varadkar’s comments regarding homelessness at The Fine Gael National Conference as “deeply insulting to those suffering the crisis.”

Teachta Adams added;

“The Taoiseach either doesn’t care enough or hasn’t grasped the scale of the crisis.

“The main statistic that the Taoiseach should be concerned about is the more than 8,000 citizens, including over 3,000 children, who are without a home. This is happening on his watch and as a result of the policies he is standing over.

“It is alarming that Teachta Varadkar seems to think that this is not such a big deal. His remarks will be cold comfort to those citizens this evening.”
