TD calls for timeline for MICA Redress Scheme 22.01.19

FIANNA Fáil TD for Donegal Charlie McConalogue has called on the government to put a timeline in place for the promised MICA redress scheme. Homeowners in Inishowen are still waiting to find out when the scheme will become operational so that they can put plans in place to remedy their homes.
In October 2018 the Mica Action Group (MAG) had welcomed the long awaited statement from government that they will provide a redress scheme for homeowners in Donegal affected by defective blocks.
Deputy McConalogue commented, “The latest reply from the Housing Minister claims that “work is well underway” and that he intends to “revert to Government with proposals for the scheme as soon as possible”.
“This response is extremely vague and will not ease the anxiety being experienced by affected homeowners. The Minister had previously promised that proposals would be presented to the Government before Christmas. It’s now January and we appear to be no further down the track on this issue.
“Minister Murphy needs to set a commencement date for the scheme now, and remediation must begin early this year.
“This redress scheme has experienced delays every step of the way. It is imperative that a scheme is set up as soon as possible – these homeowners have already been waiting too long. The redress scheme is needed now”, concluded Deputy McConalogue.
