Concerns over COVID-19 Guidance and Financial Support to Industry Sectors – Tuesday 7 July 2020

This motion, proposed by Michelle McIlveen Chairperson of the Infrastructure Committee, asks that the Assembly recognises the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the taxi, haulage, driving instruction, and private hire bus and coach sectors; acknowledges that these industries have not been prioritised in terms of guidance and support packages; and calls on the Minister for Infrastructure to bring forward proposals for the formulation of guidance and financial support for these sectors as a matter of urgency. Members discuss the motion before Infrastructure Minister Nichola Mallon responds to the concerns.
