Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation
Violet Wynne (Clare, Sinn Fein)
I want to raise an issue with regard to Clare County Council. I have been contacted by a gentleman who is wheelchair bound and who claims the disability allowance. He has suffered many personal difficulties and has now been told he has reached the end of the road with regard to local authority services for one reason or another. This situation is leaving someone in a wheelchair homeless. His only bit of luck was to get a room in a hotel fairly cheaply because of Covid. We need to ensure extra supports are available for vulnerable people such as this man.
