Minister of State at the Department of Enterprise Robert Troy has said he is reviewing his returns to the Standards in Public Office Commission (SIPO).

It had emerged that the minister did not declare his ownership of a property in Co Westmeath on a register of interests.

Oireachtas ethics rules require public office holders to declare property interests over €13,000 in value.

Mr Troy said his review would "conclude shortly" and that he intends to "amend and update the register accordingly to correct inaccuracies".

Tánaiste Leo Vardakar has said he has full confidence in Minister Troy and that it is up to the SIPO if it wants to carry out any further investigation.

Speaking in Monaghan today, Mr Varadkar said the minister made an error and has given a full statement on the matter and will write to the Clerk of the Dáil and SIPO to amend it.

The Tánaiste said the minister's explanation "stacks up" and it is important that Mr Troy is now afforded due process.

People Before Profit TD Paul Murphy has confirmed he had made a complaint to SIPO over the issue.

Meanwhile, Minister for Further and Higher Education Simon Harris said that Mr Troy is to "correct the record" having acknowledged his "mistake".

"I think it's very important that when somebody makes a mistake that they correct the record," Mr Harris told RTE’s News at One.

"I very much welcome the fact that Minister Troy is going to do that this week.

"I believe he's been in touch with the Clerk of the Dáil and he's been in touch with the Standards in Public Office Commission. He's also very clearly and publicly said that he's fully tax compliant.

"When people make mistakes, they put their hands up. They fix the mistake and I think that's an appropriate and important thing to do."

A spokesperson for the Standards in Public Office Commission said that a members of the Dáil are required to declare any interest in a property over the value of €13,000.

The spokesperson added that members can amend statements declaring their interests under legislation.
