I will pose the questions again. Will the Taoiseach ensure there is significant representation of homeowners on the panel? Will he set a timeframe by which it must come up with solutions? Considering that people's homes are cracking and they need to know whether this is due to pyrite and that the tests to check this cost from €2,000 to €3,000, will he set up a fund immediately to provide for this? Will he set up a remediation fund so that the problem can be solved? Will he go after whatever corporate entities are partially responsible for this? I put it to the Taoiseach that he has a moral responsibility in this regard because the State overlooked this problem and the proper supervision of it. Therefore, it cannot wash its hands as the Minister is trying to do.
