MEP demands reversal of “scandalous” transport charges of disabled – Carthy

April 19, 2019

The Sinn Fein MEP Matt Carthy says the HSE is charging disabled people a "scandalous" daily fee for transporting them to HSE day care centres.

The Midlands North-West MEP is demanding that the Minister of State for Disability Issues Finian McGrath intervene immediately to reverse the transport charges.

He says he first heard of the four euro (€4) round-trip daily fees when constituents of his in Cavan and Monaghan told him about them.
