McAleer welcomes online blue badge applications

Published: 29 September, 2016

Sinn Féin MLA Declan McAleer has welcomed moves to reduce the backlog in applications for blue badges for people with disabilities. Mr McAleer said; "I welcome the announcement by my party colleague and Infrastructure Minister Chris Hazzard that people can now apply for blue badges online. "The removal of resources from the blue badge scheme when Danny Kennedy was minister hugely contributed to this backlog before he walked away from his ministerial responsibilities. "Hopefully this initiative by Minister Hazzard will help address this backlog and speed up the application process to help those with mobility difficulties."
