THE FUEL ALLOWANCE PAYMENT WILL BE PAID BY NEXT WEEK – DOHERTY

30 people slept rough during the freezing conditions in Dublin last night.

The Peter McVerry Trust says that the individuals were offered help but refused beds.

The Social Protection Minister meanwhile is reassuring people their double fuel allowance payment IS on the way.

There’s been confusion as to when the €45 will be paid.

Regina Doherty says that most people will get it next week with all payments to be made by the week after.
