RAI challenge adjourned

A challenge by the Restaurants Association of Ireland  to what it claims are “discriminatory” indoor dining rules has been adjourned for  a fortnight.restaurant0620

The High Court adjourned the matter until July 22 to allow the Minister for Health to file “technical” affidavits in the case.
The development came as a second round of talks between industry representatives and Government officials on how indoor dining might be reopened were due to take place today.
The adjournment of the proceedings was done with the consent of the RAI and three other businesses who have taken judicial review proceedings against the minister.
When the matter first came before the court last month, Mr Justice Charles Meenan directed that the minister file an affidavit explaining why hotel restaurants have been allowed to serve customers indoors while other restaurants have been restricted to outdoor dining only.

 

An affidavit was subsequently filed by the minister’s side claiming restaurant toilets were far riskier than the facilities in hotels for catching Covid-19.
In the affidavit, deputy chief medical officer Dr Colette Bonner claimed the decision to differentiate between hotel restaurants and non-hotel restaurants was reasonable at this stage of the gradual reopening of society and the economy.
