Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (18 Dec 2019)

Peter Fitzpatrick: Two weeks ago, I raised the issue of a proposed housing development in Sienna Valley in Drogheda with full planning permission for 4,000 homes, zoning for several thousand more and the DART link scheduled for 2022. Not a single house has been built because the Department is refusing to jointly fund the northern cross route road which runs through the housing development. For the past two...

Select Committee on Justice and Equality: Estimates for Public Services 2019
Vote 20 - An Garda Síochána (Supplementary)
Vote 24 - Justice and Equality (Supplementary)
(4 Dec 2019)

Peter Fitzpatrick: I thank the Minister for appearing before the committee today. On additional investment in transport, I note the total Garda fleet allocation of €11 million in 2019. I come from a Border county and live in Dundalk. It is important that we see a Garda presence along the Border from Omeath to Donegal. The Minister referred to end-of-life vehicles. There are problems with some of the...

(4 Dec 2019)

Peter Fitzpatrick: I welcome the 287 new vehicles but are many vehicles being taken off the road this year? Will the new vehicles replace 287 vehicles?

Select Committee on Justice and Equality: Estimates for Public Services 2019
Vote 20 - An Garda Síochána (Supplementary)
Vote 24 - Justice and Equality (Supplementary)
(4 Dec 2019)

Peter Fitzpatrick: I am concerned not about the age of the vehicles but the mileage. Many of the cars in the Dundalk and Drogheda areas could be used on a 24-hour basis and it would not take long to get 300,000 km on the clock. The vehicle could be only two or three years old. The age of the vehicle does not bother me. The figure of 287 new vehicles seems high but I have a feeling that many more cars are...

Select Committee on Justice and Equality: Estimates for Public Services 2019
Vote 20 - An Garda Síochána (Supplementary)
Vote 24 - Justice and Equality (Supplementary)
(4 Dec 2019)

Peter Fitzpatrick: I did not think the figure was as high as that or that there were 3,000 full-time civilians. I know the target is 4,000. I welcome the extra 500 front-line gardaí in the area. Will the extra Garda staff coming on stream in 2019 help to increase the civilian staff from 3,000 to 4,000? Is that going to happen in a short period? If we can get a couple of hundred more gardaí on the...

Select Committee on Justice and Equality: Estimates for Public Services 2019
Vote 20 - An Garda Síochána (Supplementary)
Vote 24 - Justice and Equality (Supplementary)
(4 Dec 2019)

Peter Fitzpatrick: In my time as a member of this committee, I have never once mentioned or criticised Garda overtime. I come from County Louth where two gardaí were murdered in recent years. When a garda leaves the house for the day, there is no guarantee that he or she will come back. I have always said that the Garda does a fantastic job and has done over recent years, especially when Templemore...

Confidence in the Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government: Motion [Private Members] (3 Dec 2019)

Peter Fitzpatrick: More than 10,500 people are homeless. Since 2014, the number of families who are homeless has increased by 354%. One in three persons living in emergency accommodation is a child. These figures do not include the people who live with families and friends who, I can vouch, come in daily and weekly to my constituency office. The figures also do not include people who live in squats, those...

An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (3 Dec 2019)

Peter Fitzpatrick: In recent years, I have raised the issue of local needs requirements in the context of the planning process. There are currently families living in wee villages but it is impossible for them to get planning permission to build in the countryside. I have raised this matter with the Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government many times. In all counties, there are large numbers of...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (28 Nov 2019)

Peter Fitzpatrick: I attended a meeting with Deputy Breathnach at DKIT this morning. It is a fantastic college. There is currently a problem relating to its status as a technical university. Some 5,300 students attend DKIT, while there are more than 500 members of staff. If DKIT does not get its act together by April 2020, it will risk losing out on its part of the €90 million in funding set aside...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (21 Nov 2019)

Peter Fitzpatrick: The 2019 Environmental Protection Agency report reveals that raw sewage is being released into the environment every day, with coastal areas being the worst affected. In County Louth six areas have been identified and need investment badly. These are Blackrock, Castlebellingham, Dunleer, Omeath, Tallanstown and Dundalk. Omeath is still without a wastewater treatment plant. Blackrock and...
