It’s in the wake of Conor Skehan’s remarks earlier this week, claiming some people in emergency accommodation could be ‘gaming the system’ to get housing.
He also called for performance targets for charities working in the sector.
CEO of Inner City Helping Homeless Anthony Flynn doesn’t agree with the appointment saying “its very foolish on behalf of the department”.

The answer to that is an emphatic no! https://t.co/3IDu1NlKeX
