A decision on an enhanced Mica Redress scheme is set to be delayed again.
The Cabinet was due to make a final decision on the new scheme on Tuesday 9th November.
But it emerged yesterday that the deadline will be missed.
Sinn Féin Deputy Pearse Doherty accused the government of putting a delay on doing what’s right.
He said: “Once again you are going to miss the deadline to do what’s right in relation to families in Donegal and elsewhere who are suffering as a result of no regulation, light touch regulation, where their houses are crumbling around them. The extended deadline of the 9th of November is going to be missed and breached by the Cabinet because you haven’t got your act together.”
“That’s not acceptable to the many families who are in mental turmoil waiting on the government to do the right thing.”
