Sinn Féin plan to help workers and families with the cost of living crisis

In the first Private Members Debate of the new Dáil term this week Sinn Féin brought forward its plan to help workers and families with the cost of living crisis.

This includes cutting household electricity bills and capping them at 2021 prices, giving direct cash payments to middle and low income households, providing a double child benefit payment for every child and introducing a windfall tax on the massive profits of energy companies.

Watch a section of the debate here:

Government must introduce a Windfall Tax on energy companies

Speaking at the European Parliament this week Sinn Féin MEP Chris MacManus said the government must introduce a windfall tax on energy companies and redirect the money back into people’s pockets.

He said our most basic needs are under threat from the selfish profiteering of energy companies and the perplexing inaction of government.

Watch Chris here:

Government must act now to cut electricity bills

Speaking at the first Leaders’ Question of the new Dáil term this week Mary Lou McDonald said the Government needs to act now by cutting electricity bills back to pre-crisis levels and keeping them there for the winter months.

She said she does not accept the utter failure to plan when it comes to school transport.
