Deputy Joe McHugh to ‘consider all options’ if redress not up to standard

Donegal Fine Gael TD says he will have to ‘consider all options’ politically if the Mica redress scheme does not meet homeowners expectations.

The Irish Times report this morning that leaving the party would be ‘one of the hardest things’ for him to do.

He said the by the end of negotiations on the first redress scheme, it was plagued by ‘nit-picking’ and fears the same could happen again.

Party leaders and Ministers held a meeting last where a number of options were discussed such as an industry levy to co-fund the remediation measures as well as higher caps on the value of proposed works to remedy the mica problem.
