2019-21 Session
That this House expresses its gratitude for the hard work of local authorities in helping to ensure that vulnerable groups are protected during the covid-19 pandemic; recognises the vital role that local authorities are playing in the co-ordination and running of local support groups that distribute food and medication and identify vulnerable people within the community; and calls on the Government to provide the necessary financial support and urgently clarify how and when that support will be distributed.
