The Public Expenditure Minister has criticised Fianna Fáil’s stance on water charges.

Paschal Donohoe says as soon as the Oireachtas committee makes decisions he will outline the consequences – a clear hint at the bill for the taxpayer of whatever is proceeded with.

It’s expected refunds of charges paid will cost at least 160 million euro.


Minister Donohoe says he doesn’t understand Fianna Fáil’s position on not having a charge for excessive use of water.
