  • Pandemic payment to DF members

    "More than 124,000 people have received the bonus, which is welcome. However, I am not satisfied on two fronts. First, the Defence Forces, the Fire Brigade and prison nurses have yet to be paid. I have instructed the Department of Health to take that back from the HSE and expedite that payment in the coming weeks. Second, the HSE is nervous of making payments and overpayments to section 39 and private organisations. I am seeking for them to move to a self-assessment model where each of these organisations will itself calculate what it is owed. We would then make those payments but, critically, those payments would then be audited after the fact in order to speed this up. I have asked the HSE to come back to me with an accelerated timeline."

    "No, they're trying to fly the tank"

    Could have just done that in the first place given that their employer has their bank details and knows who did what rather than the cluster HSE
