Utility providers should support customers impacted by COVID19 – Archibald

Sinn Féin MLA Caoimhe Archibald has written to utility providers asking them to support customers who may be unable to pay their bills due to the COVID19 crisis.

The party’s economy spokesperson said:

“Some businesses and individuals will face financial difficulties and as a result will be unable to make their utility bill payments.

“I have written to a number of utility providers asking them not to action disconnections to businesses and individuals who are impacted, and to engage with customers to support them through this public health emergency.

“In response to this, I have been liaising with NIE Network and they have confirmed they are looking at how customers can be supported in the time ahead.

“It is vital in this time that the Executive shows clear and unambiguous leadership for the community and Sinn Féin will continue to work for a sensible and responsible approach in order to protect lives.”

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.
