The Government have been called on to step in and reduce the costs of premiums when it comes to insuring a business.
The calls have been made by Sligo/Leitrim Fianna Fail TD Eamon Scanlon.
Deputy Scanlon raised the matter in the Dail this week week after a business had contacted him in relation to rising insurance costs.
The business in question which employs 106 people had it’s insurance costs increase by €30,000 in the space of just one year.
Deputy Scanlan claims people are at their wits end and if businesses continue like this, they will have to close.
In response to Deputy Scanlan’s statement; Minister for State with special responsibility for trade, employment and business, Pat Breen ensured the government is “working hard” to deal with the rising costs
