Holidays Food Decision “outrageous and uncaring”

The withdrawal of the Easter holiday’s food grant has been condemned as ‘ outrageous, uncaring and an assault on the most vulnerable in our society”.

Workers Party representative Tony Walls has called on the Department of Education to reverse its earlier decision to withhold funding from the families of the 96,000 children in Northern Ireland who rely on the  payments to provide nutrious food during holiday periods.

“This is an outrageous decison”, Tony said “and it will have a direct impact on childrens’ physical and mental development”.
