Sinn Féin MP Elisha McCallion has said Tory/DUP cuts to frontline services must be opposed.
The Foyle MP said:
“Today in Derry, Sinn Féin staged a protest outside the Guildhall ahead of a briefing by the Western Trust on proposed cuts to the health service.
“Sinn Féin is totally opposed to these cuts, which we regard as a direct attack on those most in need in our society.
“Instead of cuts, we need to see investment in our health service, just as former health minister Michelle O’Neill called for.
“Sinn Féin will continue to oppose Tory/DUP cuts to our frontline services and will continue to demonstrate, campaign and lobby against austerity.” Ends/Críoch
