Flood relocation programme

 

Sir, – Further to “Households in flood areas may be given up to ¤200,000 to relocate” (March 20th), it seems very unfair that the Minister of State for the Office of Public Works would propose that households in flood-risk areas might be given up to €200,000 to relocate, when other departments and agencies of the state have failed to prevent or redress fire safety issues in many Celtic Tiger developments. – Yours, etc,

Sir, – The price of rectifying some astonishing planning decisions looks set to be astronomical. When will we ever learn? – Yours, etc,
