Motion: Supporting Students.

Council Meeting - 2nd March 2021

“That Fermanagh & Omagh District Council welcomes the recent  announcement of a £500 Covid Disruption payment for students studying full-time Higher Education courses; notes the exclusion of full-time students  studying Further Education courses and students studying Higher Education      courses in the rest of Ireland or in Britain is unfair; acknowledges the          difficulty of part time students facing financial hardship also needs to be addressed; and calls on the Minister for the Economy Diane Dodds to address the inequalities and ensure that all students who are currently excluded from the Covid Disruption Payment receive the £500 payment”.


Proposed by: Proposed by Councillor McElduff and seconded by Councillor Greene
