DFI Pre-Budget Submission Launch 2013, John Dolan, Chief Executive Officer, Disability Federation of Ireland
Issued on October 18 2012
This country is in a very uncomfortable place; there are no easy ways for the Government to reconcile the competing needs facing it. Clearly we must get the economy back on its feet and the fiscal deficit into better order. But those objectives alone will not bring success without simultaneously protecting the integrity of our social system to support disabled people and others.
