SOME HOUSES STILL CLAIMING CANCELLED WATER CONSERVATION GRANT

It’s emerged that a small number of households are STILL claiming the 100 euro water conservation grant – despite it being scrapped a year ago.

The grant was paid to households in 2015 as a way of helping to cover the cost of water bills, and of water conservation measures.

The state spent € 89 million euro covering the cost of the grants, which were then scrapped when water charges were suspended.

However the Public Accounts Committee has been told this morning that a small number of households are still claiming the one-off grant, having not received it in 2015.
