McGrath welcomes increased funding for HIA redress payments

The Executive Office Committee Chair said: “I welcome the reallocation of these funds which will help support the recommendations for redress payments, recommended by the Historical Institutional Inquiry.”

“Victims and survivors of institutional abuse have been campaigning for this full financial redress for many years and they badly deserve this support.”

“This announcement will provide funding to the Executive Office to undertake a scoping exercise to accelerate towards making these much needed payments.”

“The Minister, in his response to my question in the Assembly, stated that it was not up to his Department to implement timescales but rather the Executive Office.”

“I am meeting the Head of the Civil Service today and will raise this issue with him”

“No longer should these victims and survivors have to wait.”
