Just out of curiosity and something most people probably know but I don't
I cant find the answer so looking for a bit of help here please (Mods, think it was posted in wrong place earlier but please move if another forum is appropriate).
The Covid RTA emergency measures was for 3 months from 27 Mar and can be extended by the government "....from time to time, by order extend the emergency period for such period as they consider appropriate..."
How does that work? Is an Order the same as a Statutory Instrument or is it just an announcement made by the government?
The rent/termination freeze seems to be extended but when did it happen? Was it the announcement read out in the daily briefing from the last taoiseach on 22 June. If that's an Order, the government can make as many announcements as they like to keep extending the finish date.
AFAIR, they had to pass legislation to extend the RPZ timeframe and the areas covered by the RPZ rules before the original date finished.
Is this different or is the freeze finished since 27th June?
