Joint Oireachtas Committee on Housing, Planning and Local Government
Role of Chairperson of Housing Agency and Related Matters: Discussion
I have a brief question. Mr. Skehan provided the joint committee with information from a variety of sources to support the view that there are at least questions about people gaming the system. Some of this information was from social media sources. While I stand to be corrected, I understand Mr. Skehan indicated he was involved in an entity or business and had obtained some of this information in the course of this business which monitors social media or does similar work. He then provided some anecdotes. What exactly is the other business in which Mr. Skehan is involved that gave him access to this information? Is it appropriate that he has shared this information in this forum?
