Sinn Féin €1bn Voucher Plan

Sinn Féin have proposed an almost €1bn economic stimulus plan for the tourism and hospitality sectors.darrenorourke0620

Under the scheme, every adult in the State, no matter their income, would receive a voucher worth €200, while every child would be entitled to a voucher worth €100, to be spent in businesses in the tourism and hospitality sectors across Ireland until the end of 2021.

 Funded through borrowing, Sinn Féin say this model, which has already been rolled out in Malaysia, Iceland and Italy, in various forms, would revive the two sectors hit hardest by the Covid-19 pandemic.
 Sinn Féin spokesperson on Transport, Tourism and Sport Darren O'Rourke says urgent government intervention is required to save jobs and businesses.
“Tourism is the State’s largest indigenous industry, employing 265,000 people, with 68% of these jobs outside of Dublin," he said.

It is unclear as to when the actual funding will be available and the overall project has been given a two-year duration by Diageo, but pub owners can immediately begin registering their interest for funding to Diageo.
“The hospitality sector in Ireland requires long-term investment and support to get back up and running,” said Diageo Ireland managing director Oliver Loomes.
