The Public Accounts Committee will meet today to discuss an alleged failure to provide payouts to families who were illegally charged for nursing home stays.

Mayo Sinn Fein Deputy Rose Conway-Walsh wants the Government to release the documents associated to a so-called "secret strategy."

It's been reported members of the current Government were aware of the practice, but a spokesperson says the story has been misrepresented.

Deputy Conway-Walsh has also raised her concern that the State denied up to 12,000 vulnerable people their disability allowance payments.

She has been giving more details to Midwest Radio’s Michael D. McAndrew.
