Sinn Féin launch petition to give 16 and 17 year-olds the High Street Voucher

Sinn Féin MLA Pádraig Delargy has said the High Street Voucher should be extended to include 16 and 17 year-olds. 

Speaking after launching an online petition, the Foyle MLA said: 

“The £100 High Street Voucher scheme should be extended to include young people at 16 and 17. 

“It’s unfair that they have been excluded given the fact they are eligible to work, pay tax and contribute to our economy like everyone else. 

“That’s why I have launched a petition urging the DUP Economy Minister to give these young people the High Street Voucher to play their part in boosting our economy. 

“I would urge people sign this petition and keep the pressure on the Minister to reverse the decision to exclude them: https://www.change.org/p/northern-ireland-assembly-i-m-calling-on-the-economy-minister-to-extend-the-high-street-voucher-to-16-17-year-olds

The third and final day of a fantastic Ploughing. Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Sinn Féin tent for a chat over the last few day.

Sinn Féin in Government would stand up and ensure a future for our family farmers and deliver a fair deal for rural Ireland.


It was totally irresponsible for the Minister for Health to travel abroad possibly knowing the scandal at Temple Street Children’s Hospital was going to break.

This scandal raises serious questions around transparency, discipline, oversight & clinical governance. @davidcullinane
