Sinn Féin MLA Caoimhe Archibald has welcomed the announcement of a £95 million high street voucher scheme to support local businesses struggling as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Caoimhe Archibald said: 

“I welcome today’s announcement from the Finance Minister of a £95 million high street voucher scheme to give money to workers and families to spend in local shops to help support businesses struggling as a result of COVID-19.
