Mary Lou McDonald: I extend a very warm welcome to all the groups in the Public Gallery referred to by Deputy Cairns. Tá fáilte rompu go léir. Parents across Ireland are under enormous pressure to meet extortionate back to school costs. It is a big source of stress for families every summer but this year is exceptional, given the ever worsening cost-of-living crisis. For weeks, we have...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (6 Jul 2022)

Mary Lou McDonald: The Government took its time listening to what is just plain common sense by making a move on these matters now in July and putting money in families' pockets when they need it and when it will count. I ask the Minister to take the next step. He is surely not saying to families who have €621 a week that they are home and hosed, and that it is plain sailing for them. We describe...

An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (5 Jul 2022)

Mary Lou McDonald: SIPTU members employed by the Irish Wheelchair Association are on strike today. They are on the picket line because they have not had a pay increase in 14 years. Even though they do the same work as HSE healthcare assistants, they are paid a lot less, which is €3 per hour less. As the Tánaiste will be aware, this is a common problem across section 39 organisations. These are...

An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (5 Jul 2022)

Mary Lou McDonald: It is not agreed. The haste with which the Government wishes to move the defective blocks scheme of the Minister for Housing, Local Government and Heritage, Deputy Darragh O'Brien, through the Oireachtas is extraordinary and scandalous.

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (5 Jul 2022)

Mary Lou McDonald: I thank the Tánaiste for his reply. Those high structural costs, as he knows, long predate this particular cost-of-living crunch, which I am sure he would acknowledge. The Government's response to these matters has been slow. It has lacked urgency but we can agree to disagree on that. What I would like us to agree on is that families preparing to get children back to school in late...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (5 Jul 2022)

Mary Lou McDonald: We have just two weeks left in this Dáil term, which is two weeks for the Government to intervene with measures to alleviate the enormous pressure the cost-of-living crisis is placing on households. Yesterday, the Ministers for Finance and Public Expenditure and Reform, Deputies Donohoe, and Michael McGrath, respectively, announced to great fanfare that budget 2023 will be brought...
