Dwyer welcomes unanimous backing for motions on Hospital Upgrading and Road Safety.
Wexford Sinn Féin County Councillor and general election candidate John
Dwyer has warmly welcomed the unanimous support from his colleagues on
Wexford County Council for two motions submitted on health and safety.
Dwyer, himself a former health and safety officer, has along with his colleagues been campaigning for many years for a written and timetabled plan for the upgrading of Wexford General Hospital to be put in place by the HSE.
Speaking after the March monthly meeting he said:
"I warmly welcome the unanimous backing of Wexford County Council for these Sinn Féin motions and would also like to thank my fellow councillors from Fianna Fáil, Fine Gael, Labour and Independents for supporting our campaign. Hopefully this call from our council coupled with our rally on Saturday week will help to put Minister Harney under pressure in delivering a timetabled upgrading plan very soon." ENDS
"This council will call on the HSE for the immediate publication of a plan for the upgrading of Wexford General Hospital and for this plan to have to a detailed timeframe with specific dates for delivery"
a)"In a similar fashion to the way in which this County Council facilitated the VEC in their excellent road safety training initiative for vocational=
school students that council officials would now facilitate the expansion of that scheme within their capacity to do so."
(b)" That this council identifies accident black-spots/ dangerous junctions in County Wexford and calls on all political parties to refrain from election postering at these sites over the coming months"
