Sinn Féin - On Your Side

If the political will exists we can get rid of water charges - Lynn Boylan MEP

29 March, 2016 - by Lynn Boylan MEP


Sinn Féin MEP Lynn Boylan has said legal advice leaked to the Irish Times on the legality of abolishing water charges does not tally with information her office has received from the EU Commission.

Speaking in Dublin this afternoon Ms Boylan called on Irish Water to publish the full legal opinion.

She said;

“Irish Water should publish the legal advice it received in full as it does not tally with the information my office has received from the EU Commission.

“Our view is that there is nothing to stop Ireland from using the derogation and we have that in black and white from the EU Commission.

“The reality is that if the political will exists we can get rid of water charges.”
