Mc Hugh tells Dail sub contractors must be protected

Donegal North East Deputy Joe Mc Hugh has told the Dail that the history of the extension at Letterkenny General Hospital will leave a bitter taste in the mouths of many sub contractors who got burned and lost money on the project.

Deputy Mc Hugh was supporting Senator Fergal Quinn's Construction Contracts Bill which is going through the Dail. The bil seeks to introduce staged payments and protection for sub contractors.

Deputy Mc Hugh says its vital that sub contractors and small businesses are protected, and the problems that arose at Letterkenny General Hospital when Mc Namara Brothers went into liquidation must not be allowed happen again................
