Donegal Deputy Joe McHugh has said people living in MICA effected houses must get 100% Redress no matter what size their house is.
It had been reported that a cap of €350,000 had been put on houses which had to be either repaired or demolished.
However, the Fine Gael TD said all those living in houses with defective blocks MUST be treated equally.
He told Donegal Daily “Any one who bought blocks in good faith irrespective of the size of the house should be treated equally.
“I have engaged with the Mica action group throughout the summer and they have produced a mathematical formulae which places a cost control emphasis on a square footage price.
“The Department of housing should seriously consider this work as it also has input from the housing agency. I believe this is the fairest way to implement a scheme.”
He referred to the pyrite scheme for North Leinster which was a 100% scheme with no caps on house size.
The average spend on the pyrite scheme was €65,000 and the maximum spend on an individual house was approximately €240,000.
Deputy McHugh added that the Government cannot drag its heels on introducing a 100% redress scheme describing it as “a national emergency and a Humanitarian issue.”
He said “The new scheme needs to be introduced quickly and there should be no attempt to drag it out any longer than necessary.
“The personal stories have been well documented at this stage and there is a clear understanding of the very real concerns around safety and general well being of so many individuals and families.
This is a national emergency and a Humanitarian issue and I acknowledge that Minister Darragh O’Brien is giving this issue the attention that it deserves.
“I urge the Minister and the Government to bring this long overdue issue to an end.”
