The government's set to outline an updated defective building block scheme in the coming weeks

A Fine Gael TD says there should be a full public inquiry to finding out who is culpable for the the use of defective mica blocks.

Joe McHugh says a state redress scheme should extend to all homes with blocks damaged by mica -- no matter how large they are.

Officials have estimated the cost of a 90% redress scheme at some €3.2 billion -- more than the latest estimated cost of the Dublin MetroLink.

Deputy McHugh says whatever it takes, he wants the taxpayer to fund the whole cost of works on every home affected.
