Maureen O’Sullivan TD
Dail Eireann – Tuesday 26th January 2016 @3:15pm
Deputy O’Sullivan will be speaking at 8.55pm (schedule dependent) tonight on the Private Members Business addressing the need for greater action given the ever increasing homeless figures and lack of urgency in building social housing units .
The main point of her contribution will be surrounding the distortion of figures by placing certain groups of people presenting homeless under the remit of another department and not local authorities thus down playing the already substantial numbers in Emergency Accommodation.
Deputy O’Sullivan will highlight the manner in which the current figures are not a clear representation of the crisis and that a whistle-blower who tried to highlight this distorted reporting was silenced by the department in which he worked
