Post-bailout inspections

 

Sir, – I read in “Budget 2018 criticised by European Commission” (February 8th) that the European Commission decrees that Ireland’s housing policy must be “underpinned by a concrete regulatory framework”.

Indeed! – Yours, etc,

A chara, – Nigel Farage was derided for saying that Ireland is subservient to Brussels, and immediately the European Commission and the European Central Bank prove his point by warning the Government about its behaviour.

Intrusive inspections, admonitions and implied threats will continue until the EU post-bailout surveillance concludes in 2031. – Is mise,
