Ceisteanna - Questions: Climate Change Policy (22 May 2024)

Mick Barry: The European far right rallied in Madrid last Sunday, where they were addressed by Argentina's President Javier Milei who described climate change as a socialist lie. Of course, it does not take far-right leaders to jet in from other continents to come out with this kind of nonsense. The European far right is well capable of putting it forward itself. Alternative für Deutschland is...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Climate Change Policy (22 May 2024)

Richard Boyd Barrett: Any sensible person knows there is a climate and biodiversity emergency and that, if we do not address them, we will be in trouble. As much as the far right want to deny it, the impacts will cost our society very dearly. We have to recognise that large numbers of people have become alienated from the climate action and biodiversity action agenda because they see climate action as a...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Climate Change Policy (22 May 2024)

Paul Murphy: Transport is one of the top two emitting sectors of greenhouse gases. Most of this comes from private cars. To get these numbers down and improve people's lives on a daily basis, we need a massive modal shift away from cars, and people sitting in traffic for an hour on their way to work and for an hour on their way home, into quality public transport and active travel. This means investing...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Climate Change Policy (22 May 2024)

Simon Harris: To respond to Deputy O'Rourke, yesterday the Government considered the climate action plan for 2024 which has now been published. Next year we will begin the process of the allocation of the unallocated emissions. We have given consideration, and the Minister Deputy Ryan has shared this with the House previously, to a number of ways this can be addressed, including technology. I am very...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Foreign Conflicts (22 May 2024)

Simon Harris: I propose to take Questions Nos. 14 to 17, inclusive, together. As the House will be aware, the ongoing conflict in Gaza and the situation in the Middle East is of great international concern. The phrase "ongoing conflict" does not in any way capture the scale of the humanitarian catastrophe we are now seeing in Gaza. Since my election as Taoiseach, I have had many discussions on the...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Cabinet Committees (22 May 2024)

Mick Barry: St. Killian's Special School in Mayfield on the north side of Cork city is a wonderful school that has 93 children attending. That figure will rise to 99 in September. The school has need of a psychologist, a speech and language therapist and an occupational therapist, and perhaps a play therapist and a behavioural therapist. Before Christmas, the Minister of State, Deputy Rabbitte, told...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Cabinet Committees (22 May 2024)

Peadar Tóibín: Two months ago, the Government disastrously lost two referendums. It spent €23 million to run the referendums. At the time, we in Aontú, the only party that opposed the referendums, stated clearly that the Government was misleading the people in respect of the tax elements that would affect the people, what was meant by durable relationships and how the courts would see it, and...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Cabinet Committees (22 May 2024)

Cormac Devlin: The Deputy must withdraw that remark about lying.

Ceisteanna - Questions: Cabinet Committees (22 May 2024)

Peadar Tóibín: If anybody has a thesaurus I can use that will give the understanding that the Government did not tell the truth, I will use a different word, if necessary. It is important that the Government takes responsibility, investigates why Ministers were misleading the people and comes clean and apologies to the people of Ireland for the information it shared at that key moment.

Ceisteanna - Questions: Cabinet Committees (22 May 2024)

Simon Harris: I do not intend to rerun the referendum campaign. I have no doubt that people engaged in good faith on a variety of sides.

Ceisteanna - Questions: Cabinet Committees (22 May 2024)

Peadar Tóibín: They were advised in one way and gave advice in the other direction.

Ceisteanna - Questions: Cabinet Committees (22 May 2024)

Simon Harris: I was going to make a point with which the Deputy might agree. The issue of providing clarity on legal advice during a referendum campaign is important. When I was the Minister for Health, there was a referendum campaign on which the Deputy and I were on different sides. However, we had a précis paper that allowed me to share with the Dáil in some guise the legal advice that was...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Cabinet Committees (22 May 2024)

Mick Barry: I asked about St. Killian's Special School.

Ceisteanna - Questions: Cabinet Committees (22 May 2024)

Simon Harris: That was what I meant to say. It is what is written on my sheet of paper. I will get an update for the Deputy from the Minister of State. I share Deputy Paul Murphy's view on how appalling arson attacks are. One struggles to comprehend how, at a time of constraint in capacity, housing supply, accommodation and shelter for a whole variety of needs in our country, people who profess to...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Cabinet Committees (22 May 2024)

Peadar Tóibín: That is not the case all the time. I have heard the Minister say the opposite at times.
