‘Community transport must be protected’ – Boylan

Sinn Féin MLA Cathal Boylan has said community transport is a vital service and must be protected.

Speaking from Stormont to mark 25 years of rural community transport, the Newry & Armagh MLA said:

“Community transport is a vital service to help people in communities to travel and prevent isolation particularly in rural areas, and it must be protected. 

“The elderly and some of our most vulnerable people in rural communities rely heavily on these services.

“Savage Tory cuts to our public services are threatening the future of these services. 

“We need the Assembly up and running now to support vital community transport and support services in rural communities.”

Teachers deserve a fair pay deal that reflects their incredible work and commitment to our young people.

@ChrisHazzardSF joined with a delegation of teachers from the North to hand in a letter to the British Prime Minister calling for an immediate pay deal for workers.

Education workers deserve fair pay & working conditions.

With one party’s boycott of the Executive ongoing, the British Govt must urgently bring forward a pay deal for workers here.

We need an Executive restored now, & all parties working together to support workers & services.

In any other walk of life the person presiding over such a colossal failure would be sacked. The Minister for Justice is clearly not the person to restore people's confidence in public safety and she should resign.
