Public will not be fooled by Government’s

€5 registration charge for septic tanks

The Sinn Féin TD for North Kerry & West Limerick Martin Ferris has said the public will not be bribed by the government’s reduced septic tank registration charge.  Deputy Ferris said the Minister for Environment Phil Hogan must ensure that the cost of any upgrading of septic tanks will not be borne by already struggling households.
Speaking today Deputy Ferris said:
“The government must stop playing mind games with the registration cost.  The registration fee, regardless of cost, is not the biggest concern for families.  The key issue is the standard against which their tanks will be assessed and the cost of upgrading.

“The minister has moved the goal posts on several occasions. The appeals process was to cost €200 now it is reduced to €20 while the registration is now a once off €5. All these changes, while welcome, were brought about by public pressure. But the core issues for the public are the funding of upgrades and the standards.

“The current situation is farcical. We have legislation that demands the registration of septic tanks and the upgrading of these septic tanks but there are no standards to assess them by and no financial assistance for households to carry out the necessary work.

“The legislation as it stands is extremely punitive. It dictates that householders will be dragged through the courts and may be fined up to €5,000 if they cannot comply with these secret standards. This threatening behaviour by Minster Hogan is unacceptable and will be rejected by the public.
“Sinn Féin fully supports the protection of our water supply and the wider environment. But the government must stop luring the public into a false sense of security with their €5 bribe. Minister Hogan must announce, sooner rather than later, that full funding will be made available to households.”
