I thank the Minister of State for his response. However, I am disappointed with it and the Minister of State addressed the issue of holiday homes only in the last line. Why will the Government not introduce a levy on holiday homes? Does the Minister of State concur with the sentiments of the Indecon report that it is fair and acceptable that those with holiday homes or second homes throughout the State should pay for the services provided by Donegal County Council and other local authorities? Doing so would widen the finance base for local authorities to provide not only acceptable levels of services but also quality levels of service.
