Readers may recall how The Irish Times yesterday published comments made by the outgoing chairman of the Housing Agency Conor Skehan.
Mr Skehan said some families living in emergency accommodation may be “gaming the system” by declaring themselves homeless in order to be moved up the housing waiting list.
Further to this…
At a meeting of the National Emergency Co-ordination Group this morning to review the impact of Storm Eleanor, in which Mr Murphy told journalists there was adequate preparation for the storm…
Housing Minister Eoghan Murphy also told reporters he has seen no evidence of the so-called “gaming”, claimed by Mr Skehan, in his department.
Specifically asked Dep of Housing if Eoghan Murphy will distance himself from “game the system” claims. Their ‘answer’, which doesn’t answer anything, is: “Homelessness is complex. The Dep will work with all stakeholders to provide approp supports/accomm to those who need them.”
