NI assembly election: SDLP proposes £250 payment to babies

The SDLP has launched its manifesto with a pledge to give new-born children in Northern Ireland a £250 payment.

The party said its proposed strong-start fund could be topped up with a further £250 payment when a child celebrates their 10th birthday.
