Sinn Féin MLA and Deputy Chair of the Social Development Committee Mickey Brady has said that the committee is bringing forward a motion to the Assembly calling for an ad-hoc committee to be set up in order to ensure that the Welfare Reform Bill is Human Rights and Equality compliant.

Speaking to Newry Times, Brady said, “Following submissions from a wide range of groups who raised the issue of whether the Welfare Reform Bill met with Equality and Human Rights legislation the Committee has voted in favour of bringing a motion before the Assembly.

“Sinn Féin is pleased the committee supported the proposal to establish this Ad-Hoc committee and this underpins our commitment and promise to fully scrutinise this Welfare Reform Bill, especially given the widespread concerns expressed by a wide range of voices within the community.”
