Post-European Council Meeting: Statements (13 Jul 2022)

Michael Healy-Rae: First, I would like to raise the energy cost crisis going into the winter time. If we will have an over reliance on England and France for gas at a time when a bag of coal here could be easily facing into €40, €45 and going on to €50 at Christmas time, people will go cold in their homes this winter because they will not be able to afford to keep themselves warm. There...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (13 Jul 2022)

Michael Healy-Rae: I also wish to point out that 2,000 ha of land was planted last year – it should have been 8,000 ha. There is over a two-year delay in getting planting permits due to a backlog in the felling licences being issued. Farm forestry nationally has collapsed. Recently, Deputy Cahill, who is an excellent Chairperson of the Committee on Agriculture, Food and Marine, told members that the...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (13 Jul 2022)

Rent Reduction Bill 2022: Second Stage [Private Members] (13 Jul 2022)

Michael Healy-Rae: First, I will declare that for many decades I have been involved in the rental market. That puts me in a good position to talk about this very important subject. I welcome the debate, but some of its content will not help to solve the problem. What we have heard from an awful lot of the Deputies to the right is the demonisation of people who have properties they rent out. They are...

Planning and Development (Amendment) (No. 2) Bill 2022 [Seanad]: Instruction to Committee (13 Jul 2022)

Michael Healy-Rae: I highlight how disappointed, shocked and upset I am at the manner in which the guillotine procedure is being used today. There is a lack of confidence in the whole planning system and the process around the granting of planning permission that is compounded by a number of factors. On top of everything else, the manner in which this legislation is being passed is going to further erode...
