North West TD calling on the government to supply meal vouchers for farmers

A North West TD says that meal vouchers for farmers is a solution for their current economic situation.

The weather over the last number of months has affected farmers in the region and a number are now facing severe financial difficulties.

He says that the meal vouchers are urgently needed.
