Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation
The last update that Deputy Brady got from the Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment still stands. We are trying to work together to find a mechanism. We have never found it so difficult to give money to people who need it. A scheme does not exist today that exactly mirrors the people who need to receive this money. I cannot share data with the Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment. It cannot establish who the people are. We are trying our level best to make sure that the money gets to the people who need it but it is not as easy as identifying what scheme those people exist on because they exist across multiple schemes. We will keep going until we find a means and it will be backdated, so the money is not going anywhere.
