This entails 2.2 million more hours compared to the same period last year. The waiting lists have come down from 7,800 in January 2020 to just over 400 in 2021. The Minister of State, Deputy Butler, has made a lot of progress on this and wants to make more progress on this and wants to make more. The Deputy is correct in that because we have made so much progress, there is now pressure on getting more staff in the homecare area. We will see what we can to do improve conditions to attract more people.
