Local TD says now is the time to support businesses that have been impacted by hotels housing refugees.

A Sligo Leitrim TD is supporting calls for businesses affected by the refugee crisis to benefit from a package of supports under Budget 2024


Deputy Frank Feighan is one of a number of Fine Gael backbenchers that are pushing for assistance for businesses in areas where hotel accommodation is now being used to house refugees or asylum-seekers.




Ocean FM news understands that TDs and senators are pushing for pandemic-style Budget supports for businesses suffering a drop in custom due to migrants living in hotels and B&Bs.



The former Junior Minister who has confirmed that he will seek the party nomination for the next general election says he’s hopeful some support measures will be available for these businesses in the Budget 2024
