Sinn Féin welcome for RHI inspections – Ó Muilleoir

15 August, 2017 - by Máirtín Ó Muilleoir

Sinn Féin MLA Máirtín Ó Muilleoir has welcomed the beginning of a scheme to inspect boiler sites involved in the RHI scheme, but insisted much more will be required to restore public confidence in the political institutions here.

Commenting as the inspections got underway today, the South Belfast MLA said: 

“These inspections are only one aspect of restoring public confidence following the disastrous RHI scheme and it is disappointing that not all the sites are to be inspected.

“Nevertheless, it is welcome that this work is underway and it can hopefully begin the process of reducing the potential cost to the public purse.

“However, the crisis in public confidence which was sparked by the RHI scandal will take much more to repair. There needs to be full accountability for the failings that led to this scheme being put in place and integrity and respect in government to ensure nothing like this ever happens again.”
