Sinn Féin MP Paul Maskey has commended West Belfast based company Huhtamaki for repurposing their factory to make visors for frontline workers.

“I will continue to work with Finance Minister Conor Murphy, Health Minister Robin Swann and Huhtamaki in the time ahead to ensure that this project is taking forward in an efficient manner.

“I would appeal to all other factories that can repurpose and contribute to the fightback, while guaranteeing the safety of workers, to email:
