The Government are still trying to figure out how the concrete block levy will be applied, according to a senior Government minister.

Charlie McConalogue's comments come amid reports that the 10% levy is to be delayed, watered down or even abandoned.

Those in the construction sector claim it'll result in house prices increasing and a delay in building.

Minister Charlie McConalogue says the most important thing is that those impacted by Mica or Pyrite blocks are looked after:

"The objective behind the funding of the block levy was to implement the Mica Redress Scheme, which is really important but obviously the Government and the Ministers responsible have an outline. Minister Donohue has outlined that it is something he's going to consider carefully and engage across government on in relation to how it's applied."
