End delays on binning Bedroom Tax – Ferguson

Sinn Féin MLA Ciara Ferguson has called for an end to delays in implementing the Communities Minister’s plan to bin the Bedroom Tax.

the Foyle MLA said:

“It’s time to bin the Bedroom Tax and extend welfare protections to support workers and families.

“The Communities Minister has been clear; legislation to bin the Bedroom Tax is ready and the funding is there to pay for it – it’s now time to end the unnecessary delays.

“This cruel tax is yet another heartless Tory attack on ordinary people right across the north.

“I want to commend Minister Hargey for her continued efforts to protect people, alongside organisations such as the Cliff Edge Coalition who have been tireless in opposing this Tory tax.” Críoch/Ends
