The Government needs to introduce a standardised school book system that is fair and affordable to all.

That is the view of councillor Michael Cahill who is calling on the Government to introduce a standardised system.

Councillor Cahill says the Government needs to understand that back to school costs represent a major financial challenge and burden for many families.

The Fianna Fáil councillor has been approached by many parents recently regarding the high costs.

He says the Government have failed to address the ongoing issue which is crippling families.
