People who paid their water bills could get their money back.
It's reported a group of TDs, looking at how water should be paid for, are to make that suggestion.
The group of 20 TDs is meeting today and tomorrow to agree the contents of its final report, which will then be sent to the Dáil for a vote.
The Irish Times report that the general consensus is to refund the money but the decision still needs to be made on how the refund would work.
Cash refunds, tax credits through Revenue and the development of an opt-in, opt-out system are options that will be examined.
