Ó Snodaigh welcomes Taoiseach’s commitment on Construction Contracts Bill

13 April, 2011 - by Aengus Ó Snodaigh TD

Sinn Féin TD Aengus Ó Snodaigh today secured an assurance from An Taoiseach Enda Kenny that the Construction Contracts Bill will be fast-tracked through the Dáil.

Deputy Ó Snodaigh raised the issue with Enda Kenny in the Dáil today during the Order of Business.

Welcoming the Taoiseach’s commitment today he said:

“The Construction Contracts Bill will ease the distress of many subcontractors around the country. In particular, it will end the sharp practice of some builders in undermining subcontractors, many of whom are in dire straits and are being put out of business.

“In the last Dáil there was all party agreement on the need for this Bill so there should be no need for any delay in bringing it forward.

“I welcome the commitment from Enda Kenny today to fast-track the passage of this Bill through the Dáil.” ENDS
