SPARK (Single Parents Acting for the Rights of Kids) held a protest outside Leinster House on Wednesday.
Micheál Martin heckled at 1.57.
“This is in response to the most gendered cuts ever in the history of the state (98% of those on One Parent Famil Payment are women). 40, 000 lone parents are due to lose their entitlement to One Parent Family Payment this year once their youngest child is over 7. There have already been 11,000 families who have already lost this payment.”
