Committee for Finance - Committee Motion

Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) Action Plan and Disciplinary Process

Briefing Information

The Committee for Finance has put down the following motion for debate:

That this Assembly takes note of the Executive’s RHI Action Plan and the outcome of the RHI disciplinary process; indicates its disappointment in respect of the lack of accountability and the failure of the Northern Ireland Civil Service to demonstrate that it has learned lessons from RHI and the consequent damage to public confidence; and calls on the Minister of Finance to thoroughly review the RHI Action Plan and the relevant disciplinary procedures for senior civil servants in order to improve transparency and accountability and thus prevent recurrence.
