The Joint Committee on Housing, Planning and Local Government will tomorrow (Thursday) meet the Minister of State at the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government with special responsibility for Housing and Urban Development, Damien English TD, to discuss the Report of the Expert Group on Traveller Accommodation.

Speaking ahead of the meeting at 9.30am in Committee Room 1, Leinster House, Committee Chairman Noel Rock TD said: “The Traveller Accommodation Expert Group was established in 2018 to review the Traveller Accommodation Act 1998 and other legislation impacting on the provision and delivery of accommodation for Travellers. Members of the Expert Group briefed the Committee last month on their work and their recommendations.  We now look forward to hearing from Minister English on how the Department intends to implement the Expert Group’s report and the next steps it intends to take.”
