Motion: Increased Financial Burden on Workers, Families, and Pensioners


That this Assembly is firmly committed to a fair economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic; recognises the damage to our health and social care as a result of a legacy of British government austerity; further recognises the need to rebuild our health and social care services as we emerge from this pandemic; expresses its deep concern that the British government intends to tax the least well off through increases in National Insurance contributions and reduced increases in pension; and calls on the British government to remove the burden for funding health and social care from ordinary workers, families and pensioners and to place this, instead, on the many companies and individuals who have made huge profits during or from the pandemic.

Dr Caoimhe Archibald
Mr John O'Dowd
Ms Jemma Dolan
Ms Emma Sheerin
