The Housing Minister Eoghan Murphy could soon be put under further pressure in the coming weeks ahead as the Labour party’s housing spokesperson Jan O’Sullivan has said her party would back a motion of no confidence in Mr Murphy.
Ms O’Sullivan’s comments come after the Sinn Fein party announced last week that they were considering submitting a motion of no confidence for the current Minister for Housing.
It is believed that Sinn Fein are strongly considering submitting the motion as the party and many other opposition TD’s have grown more and more frustrated with his handling of the current housing and homeless crisis.
Although Ms O’Sullivan did say that the problem was not the sole responsibility of Mr Murphy, she did state that her party would back a motion of no confidence if one were to be submitted.
Speaking ahead of the launch of the Labour party’s Residential Tenancies Bill, Ms O’Sullivan also stated that her party would not be submitting a motion of no confidence, but they would support such a motion in the Dail.
The news of such support for a motion will more than likely increaase the pressure on Mr Murphy after he was heavily criticised by opposition TD’s given his role in handling the current homeless crisis.
