Donegal TD says October will be too late to tackle cost of living crisis

A Donegal TD has criticised the government decision to wait until October before introducing any further measures to tackle the cost of living crisis.


Later today the government will bring forward a counter-motion today to a Sinn Féin proposal for an emergency budget.


The Dáil will debate whether there should be an immediate intervention on the cost of living, before the summer recess.



Sinn Féin’s finance spokesman, Pearse Doherty, says four months is too long to wait for further action.
