Last chance for Labour TDs - Ó Snodaigh

13 December, 2012 - by Aengus Ó Snodaigh TD

Sinn Féin Spokesperson on Social Protection Aengus Ó Snodaigh has said today is the last chance for the Labour Party to live up to their promises.

Ó Snodaigh said "The government have imposed a guillotine on the Social Welfare Bill so today is the Labour Party's last chance to stop the cuts and PRSI hikes targeting low income families.

Various backbenchers have been vocal in recent days expressing concern around the cuts to respite care grant and child benefit in particular. Well today is the day that we will see whether this was anything more than lip service. Today is their last chance to act on their concerns, live up to their election promises and vote against the cuts."
