Ceisteanna (85)

John Brady

Ceist:

85. Deputy John Brady asked the Tánaiste and Minister for Justice and Equality if her attention has been drawn to the fact that homes that house those with intellectual disabilities are finding it difficult to find house insurance with insurance companies not offering a quote at all, even for contents alone; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [26636/16]

If an individual feels that they have been discriminated against in the provision of a service, such as insurance, they may contact the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission for advice in relation to how to make a formal complaint and take a claim under equality legislation. Complaints in that regard are subject to the independent adjudication of the Workplace Relations Commission and I have no role in the process.
