THE REPORT OF the government’s pyrite panel will be discussed at an Oireachtas committee meeting today.
At 2.15pm, the Environment, Culture and the Gaeltacht committee will meet to discuss the report of the pyrite panel on the cost of restoring the structural integrity of houses damaged by the use of pyrite in building materials.
The chairman of the pyrite panel is Brendan Tuohy.
It was put together by an independent panel established by Environment Minister Phil Hogan.
Homes in Fingal, Meath, Dublin city, Kildare and Offaly across 74 housing estates were all identified in the report as being at risk from pyrite contamination.
Senator Darragh O’Brien has proposed a bill seeking to change the statute of limitations so that homeowners have more time to seek remediation for pyrite.
