Alex Easton MLA has expressed deep disappointment at the response by the Housing Executive for leaving a heavily pregnant lady without proper heating.

Speaking today Alex Easton MLA said:

“I have been left deeply disappointed and frustrated by the Housing Executive response to this heavily pregnant lady, whose boiler had broken down for over three weeks. Despite four emails being sent to the Housing Executive, and expressing deep concerns that this lady has only another three weeks to go before giving birth.The work has still not been done to fix her boiler. This lady also has a small child with a serious kidney condition and the Housing Executive has left her with two small electric heaters which are costing this lady a fortune to keep on, especially in the middle of winter. I am calling on the Housing Executive to please get this lady’s boiler fixed, as it is just unacceptable that she has been left without proper heating for so long and especially with being pregnant.”
