CALLS for the minister for social protection and the finance minister to bring forward the Christmas bonus a month earlier this year was unanimously supported at this week’s council meeting.
Cllr Willie Quinn brought forward the notice of motion calling on the Christmas bonus to be paid a month earlier, pointing out that this will give people, especially elderly people, a chance to do their shopping due to Covid-19 restrictions.
“I am calling on this, I think this would make things a lot easier and will give people extra time,” cllr Quinn said
The motion was seconded by cllr William Paton and unanimously agreed.
