Mullan welcomes announcement of Discretionary Support Fund Review

Sinn Féin MLA Karen Mullan has welcomed the announcement by the Communities Minister that she has appointed an expert panel to carry out a review of the Discretionary Support Fund. 

The Foyle MLA said: 

“The announcement of this review is clear evidence that the Minister is listening to concerns and is committed to making improvements where necessary.  

“Since coming into post and in response to the pandemic the Minister Hargey has made a number of changes including increasing the income threshold, introducing an online and shorter application process and raising awareness of this fund. 

“I would like to commend her determination to make this effective by commissioning this thorough and transparent review through a panel of experts on this issue.”

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.
