Businessman Denis O’Brien has criticised the Irish government’s decision to suspend water charges.
Speaking to Bloomberg Television, Mr O’Brien said a plan to set up a commission to examine the water charges issue meant it had been “kicked in the air and down the field.”
“The government was wrong to back down on Irish Water,” he said. “All the infrastructure is Victorian for the supply of water in Ireland.”
Last week, it emerged that water bills for all householders would be suspended and the issue of the future of Irish Water would be examined by a commission of independent experts.
The announcement was made after Taoiseach Enda Kenny capitulated to Fianna Fáil to cling to power.
Mr O’Brien told Bloomberg: “I really don’t care who is in power but I think there needs to be stability in Ireland… It’s a time in Europe where a lot of unsettling things are happening.”
GMC/Sierra, which is one of three companies awarded contracts for the installation of water metres by Irish Water, is a subsidiary of Actavo, formerly Siteserv.
Siteserv is owned by Denis O’Brien’s Millington.
