Financial Resolutions - Budget Statement 2020
Mick Barry (Cork North Central, Solidarity)
-----on the official housing lists for seven consecutive months. It is clear that for the Independent Alliance, Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil there is now an acceptable level of mass homelessness because no measures in this budget will put a serious dent in that figure. An additional €20 million has been allocated for homelessness services. That might be an admission on the part of the Government, given what it is planning and budgeting for, that homelessness will increase in the next year.
