Vacant Properties: Motion [Private Members] (6 Apr 2022)

Chris Andrews: Vacant homes are a serious issue around the country but they are no less of an issue in the inner city. The difference is that in the inner city, Dublin City Council is responsible for these empty homes. A short walk from here I could show the Minister ten empty flats that are boarded up. That is ten homes that could house people in homelessness or in overcrowded or unsafe conditions....

Post-European Council Meeting: Statements (6 Apr 2022)

Chris Andrews: In many regions around the world, people are facing intense oppression and humanitarian crises brought on by oppressive regimes. All these wars are extremely challenging for Europe.

Government Response to Situation in Ukraine: Statements (30 Mar 2022)

Chris Andrews: I welcome the opportunity to speak on the situation in Ukraine. I send my continued solidarity to the people of Ukraine. The resilience and courage they have shown is inspiring.

Services for Children with Disabilities: Motion [Private Members] (29 Mar 2022)

Chris Andrews: I also commend my colleague, Deputy Tully, on the work she has done on this particular issue, which is unbelievably important to many families across the country. The fear people feel when they find out their child is neurodiverse is heartbreaking because they know so many people in their situation who have been failed and they know that the same is in store for them. I know the Minister of...

Planning and Development (Protect Social Housing) Bill 2020: Second Stage [Private Members] (24 Mar 2022)

Chris Andrews: I agree with everything Deputy Ó Broin said. It is very disappointing and the residents in Pearse Street and Ringsend will be equally disappointed. The Minister of State listed off a range of measures, but he did not say what the negative unintended consequences of the Bill would be. It will protect communities. The application in Ringsend was for 15 storeys and there were going to...

Bretton Woods Agreements (Amendment) Bill 2022: Second Stage (Resumed) (24 Mar 2022)

Chris Andrews: The Bill before us here today is essentially a fait accompli. As the Minister signed us up to this two years ago, it is something of a rubber-stamping exercise. Before I deal with the contents of this Bill, I feel I should mention the Bretton Woods system itself, from which it derives its name, because the IMF, alongside the World Bank, have been with us since the Bretton Woods system was...
