Topical Issue Debate: Garda Overtime (17 Oct 2019)

David Stanton: I again thank the Deputies for raising this very important matter, and I mean that. Working with communities to tackle public disorder and reduce anti-social behaviour is a key priority for the Garda.

Topical Issue Debate: Garda Overtime (17 Oct 2019)

Joan Collins: The Garda cannot get the extra resources for that work.

Topical Issue Debate: Garda Overtime (17 Oct 2019)

David Stanton: This approach includes a strong focus on quality-of-life issues and collaboration with local authorities to help address the causes of antisocial behaviour. I agree that Garda visibility in our communities is important, especially during the Hallowe'en period. The Government remains committed to ensuring a strong and visible police presence throughout the country in order to maintain and...

Garda Overtime

Topical Issue Debate: Garda Overtime (17 Oct 2019)

Aengus Ó Snodaigh: I commend the front-line personnel, particularly those from Dublin, on their bravery. I commend the personnel in An Garda and Dublin Fire Brigade and the hospital staff on their actions last year and in previous years. I congratulate all those who were involved in community festivals and the like last year. Annually, a crisis seems to be caused by a shortfall in the Garda...

Topical Issue Debate: Garda Overtime (17 Oct 2019)

David Stanton: On behalf of the Minister, Deputy Flanagan, who cannot be here this afternoon, I thank both Deputies sincerely for raising this important issue. I join Deputy Ó Snodaigh in recognising the work of front-line personnel at this time and throughout the year, in addition to the community personnel, who do such good work. The Deputy is correct in what he says. As the Deputies will be...

Topical Issue Debate: Garda Overtime (17 Oct 2019)

Aengus Ó Snodaigh: In all that, I did not hear that the overtime ban was being lifted. I heard it is a matter for the Commissioner. He is trying to save €6.5 million with the overtime ban, yet he had to spend in excess of €13 million on security for the US President, Mr. Donald Trump, and the US Vice President, Mr. Pence. That would go a long way towards addressing the shortfall and the dangers...

Topical Issue Debate: Garda Overtime (17 Oct 2019)

Joan Collins: I agree with Deputy Ó Snodaigh. The Minister of State, in his reply, made no reference to requesting the Commissioner to work with his superintendents to find out the areas that could have problems. There was no reference to identifying where the problems were last year, particularly considering there were crime related groups involved in the anti-social behaviour. They nearly started...

Topical Issue Debate: Garda Overtime (17 Oct 2019)

Joan Collins: I received an email from the Dublin South-Central Forum, which was concerned not about the fact that the Commissioner has control over overtime funding but that there would not be enough gardaí on the streets in the next week or so over the Hallowe'en period. It is crucial to residents and Dublin City Council officials and staff, including those in the parks, to have the support of...

Topical Issue Debate: Urban Regeneration and Development Fund (17 Oct 2019)

This is happening all around the Whitewater shopping centre, which has benefited our main street. Our side streets can take more capacity and investment, all of which stems from ensuring we have a sustainable traffic plan for the future. We can work on these projects because the National Transport Authority has a national transport framework developed for Newbridge. This plans to make...

Topical Issue Debate: Urban Regeneration and Development Fund (17 Oct 2019)

Damien English: I thank Deputy Heydon for raising the need for a second bridge over the Liffey at Newbridge, County Kildare to be progressed through Project Ireland 2040 and the urban regeneration development fund, and for giving me the opportunity both to discuss that today and to outline how we as a Government believe that Project Ireland 2040 helps causes like this and helps to achieve, through the urban...

Topical Issue Debate: Urban Regeneration and Development Fund (17 Oct 2019)

Martin Heydon: I thank the Minister of State for his detailed response and will take his points of view on board. I am glad the urban regeneration development fund will open up for applications again before the end of the year. I will work closely with officials in the Kildare County Council, as I have done up until now, to ensure that we put our best foot forward for a second bridge for Newbridge. This...

Topical Issue Debate: Urban Regeneration and Development Fund (17 Oct 2019)

Damien English: The Deputy is making a strong case for Newbridge and this infrastructure in the next round of funding. I understand the council has engaged with the officials in my Department since the previous round, in which it was not successful, although it had some success in other areas. It would be important that it would make a second application and make it as strong as possible by highlighting...

Topical Issue Debate: School Accommodation (17 Oct 2019)

Seán Haughey: I thank the Minister for his response. I appreciate that this is an evolving situation and that meetings are taking place today, as the Minister said. Parents and children are very anxious about this matter. They need more definite arrangements to be conveyed to them as soon as possible. I appreciate that discussions are ongoing and various options are still under consideration, including...
