SF Deputies in Donegal publish bill to reverse Household Charge

Donegal Deputies Pearse Doherty and Pádraig Mac Lochlainn have launched a bill that will reverse the Household Charge.

The Local Government (Household Charge) (Repeal) Bill 2012 will, if passed, reverse the household charge and allow the Department to reimburse those households that have already paid it.

Sinn Féin will be tabling the bill during private members’ time in June.

The party also intend to run what it says will be a positive and proactive ‘Back the Bill’ campaign.

Deputy Pearse Doherty says he hopes the bill will gain enough support to be passed....
