Mileage allowance needs increased to support care workers – Ní Chuilín

Sinn Féin MLA Carál Ní Chuilín has said the Health Minister needs to increase the mileage allowance to help support care workers struggling in the current cost of living crisis. 

The North Belfast MLA said:  

“The increase in the price of petrol and diesel, which has seen diesel hit new highs of £2 per litre, has our hard-pressed care workers struggling in the current cost of living crisis. 

“The Health Minister needs to increase the mileage allowance to support our care workers who are considering whether they will be able to afford to go to work.  

“An Executive needs to be formed and a three-year budget agreed which prioritises health immediately.

“Sinn Féin is committed to investing an additional billion pounds in our health service over the next three years to tackle waiting lists, recruit more doctors and nurses, to fund cancer and mental health services and help transform the health service. 

“I would urge the DUP to form an Executive to work with the other parties to tackle the cost-of-living crisis and fix the health service.”
