Logue criticises TV licence plans

Sinn Féin Councillor Patricia Logue has criticised British government plans to end free TV licences for over 75s.  

She said: 

“This is yet another example of the Tories penalising large sections of our society. 

“This move could put the price of a TV licence beyond some pensioners which would increase isolation and have a negative impact on their mental health. 

“Older people who are in receipt of pension credits will still be able to avail of free TV licences so I would encourage pensions to check if they are eligible.”
