Sinn Féin’s Budget for Change launched

Sinn Féin’s Budget for Change is about putting workers and families first. It’s about getting the basics right and ensuring that everyone has a secure roof over their head, that you can get access to medical treatment when you need it and that we get the cost of living under control.

Our budget shows what can be done, what should be done and what would be done if Sinn Féin were in government.

Carbon tax plans should be scrapped
