Kelly welcomes rates relief for childcare

Sinn Féin MLA Catherine Kelly has welcomed today’s announcement by the Finance Minister that childcare providers will get 100% rates relief. 

The West Tyrone MLA said:

“Confirmation that childcare providers will receive rates relief is welcome news. 

“Childcare providers have been left facing an uncertain future since taking the decision to close their premises. They have faced immeasurable stress and financial pressure.

“We recognise the vital support they have provided to workers and families during this pandemic, many of whom are parents of young children. 

“I commend the Finance Minister Conor Murphy for stepping in and providing this support to childcare at this difficult time.”

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.
