I sought clarity on the opening of hardware stores and garden centres.
Speaking in the Dáil yesterday, I called on Minister for Finance Paschal Donohoe to extend the scheduled end date for fuel allowance payments to facilitate elderly people and those on lower incomes who are self isolating during the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.
I have submitted a request to the National Transport Authority and Minister for Transport to immediately review the decision to cancel a two-year contract won by Clare Bus in December to operate 12 routes. This move threatens jobs and undermines the future provision of Local Link services in Clare. I would ask that any decision be reversed until the ongoing COVID-19 crisis has passed after which a comprehensive review should be carried out.
