This calls on Government to implement the recommendations of the Oireachtas Housing Committee All-Party “Safe as Houses?” report, including a redress scheme for homes affected by fire and other life safety construction defects.

Presentations on defects were delivered to our open meeting of 25 September 2018.  More information, including slides, is available for download by clicking here.
