Topical Issue Debate: Garda Overtime (17 Oct 2019)

David Stanton: I again thank the Deputies for raising this very important matter, and I mean that. Working with communities to tackle public disorder and reduce anti-social behaviour is a key priority for the Garda.

Topical Issue Debate: Garda Overtime (17 Oct 2019)

Joan Collins: The Garda cannot get the extra resources for that work.

Topical Issue Debate: Garda Overtime (17 Oct 2019)

David Stanton: This approach includes a strong focus on quality-of-life issues and collaboration with local authorities to help address the causes of antisocial behaviour. I agree that Garda visibility in our communities is important, especially during the Hallowe'en period. The Government remains committed to ensuring a strong and visible police presence throughout the country in order to maintain and...

Topical Issue Debate: Garda Overtime (17 Oct 2019)

The Dáil adjourned at 3.15 p.m. until 2 p.m. on Tuesday, 22 October 2019.

Garda Overtime

Topical Issue Debate: Garda Overtime (17 Oct 2019)

Aengus Ó Snodaigh: I commend the front-line personnel, particularly those from Dublin, on their bravery. I commend the personnel in An Garda and Dublin Fire Brigade and the hospital staff on their actions last year and in previous years. I congratulate all those who were involved in community festivals and the like last year. Annually, a crisis seems to be caused by a shortfall in the Garda...

Topical Issue Debate: Garda Overtime (17 Oct 2019)

Joan Collins: I received an email from the Dublin South-Central Forum, which was concerned not about the fact that the Commissioner has control over overtime funding but that there would not be enough gardaí on the streets in the next week or so over the Hallowe'en period. It is crucial to residents and Dublin City Council officials and staff, including those in the parks, to have the support of...

Topical Issue Debate: Garda Overtime (17 Oct 2019)

David Stanton: On behalf of the Minister, Deputy Flanagan, who cannot be here this afternoon, I thank both Deputies sincerely for raising this important issue. I join Deputy Ó Snodaigh in recognising the work of front-line personnel at this time and throughout the year, in addition to the community personnel, who do such good work. The Deputy is correct in what he says. As the Deputies will be...

Topical Issue Debate: Garda Overtime (17 Oct 2019)

Aengus Ó Snodaigh: In all that, I did not hear that the overtime ban was being lifted. I heard it is a matter for the Commissioner. He is trying to save €6.5 million with the overtime ban, yet he had to spend in excess of €13 million on security for the US President, Mr. Donald Trump, and the US Vice President, Mr. Pence. That would go a long way towards addressing the shortfall and the dangers...

Topical Issue Debate: Garda Overtime (17 Oct 2019)

Joan Collins: I agree with Deputy Ó Snodaigh. The Minister of State, in his reply, made no reference to requesting the Commissioner to work with his superintendents to find out the areas that could have problems. There was no reference to identifying where the problems were last year, particularly considering there were crime related groups involved in the anti-social behaviour. They nearly started...

Topical Issue Debate: Urban Regeneration and Development Fund (17 Oct 2019)

This is happening all around the Whitewater shopping centre, which has benefited our main street. Our side streets can take more capacity and investment, all of which stems from ensuring we have a sustainable traffic plan for the future. We can work on these projects because the National Transport Authority has a national transport framework developed for Newbridge. This plans to make...

Topical Issue Debate: Urban Regeneration and Development Fund (17 Oct 2019)

Damien English: I thank Deputy Heydon for raising the need for a second bridge over the Liffey at Newbridge, County Kildare to be progressed through Project Ireland 2040 and the urban regeneration development fund, and for giving me the opportunity both to discuss that today and to outline how we as a Government believe that Project Ireland 2040 helps causes like this and helps to achieve, through the urban...

Topical Issue Debate: Urban Regeneration and Development Fund (17 Oct 2019)

Martin Heydon: I thank the Minister of State for his detailed response and will take his points of view on board. I am glad the urban regeneration development fund will open up for applications again before the end of the year. I will work closely with officials in the Kildare County Council, as I have done up until now, to ensure that we put our best foot forward for a second bridge for Newbridge. This...

Topical Issue Debate: Urban Regeneration and Development Fund (17 Oct 2019)

Damien English: The Deputy is making a strong case for Newbridge and this infrastructure in the next round of funding. I understand the council has engaged with the officials in my Department since the previous round, in which it was not successful, although it had some success in other areas. It would be important that it would make a second application and make it as strong as possible by highlighting...

Topical Issue Debate: School Accommodation (17 Oct 2019)

Seán Haughey: I thank the Minister for his response. I appreciate that this is an evolving situation and that meetings are taking place today, as the Minister said. Parents and children are very anxious about this matter. They need more definite arrangements to be conveyed to them as soon as possible. I appreciate that discussions are ongoing and various options are still under consideration, including...

Topical Issue Debate: School Accommodation (17 Oct 2019)

Joe McHugh: I agree with the Deputy and reiterate that a timeframe is needed. An outline is needed to allow families to make preparations. We are hoping to be in a position to have the junior school back next week. We are looking at all options in respect of temporary provision prior to the school being rebuilt, from prefabs to spare capacity in local schools. Everything is on the table. I do not...

Urban Regeneration and Development Fund

Topical Issue Debate: Urban Regeneration and Development Fund (17 Oct 2019)

Martin Heydon: Newbridge in County Kildare has seen significant population growth in recent years. With a population of more than 22,500, it is the biggest town in County Kildare and the tenth biggest town in Ireland. It also has potential for further sustainable growth and development through planned developments as well as land zoned in other areas. Newbridge faces challenges, however. The main...

Topical Issue Debate: Beef Industry (17 Oct 2019)

Anne Rabbitte: I thank the Minister of State for his reply but, regrettably, he has not provided what I sought, namely, a date. We all acknowledge the pressure on family farms. The formation of the new beef task force was one of the nuggets of the agreement secured on 15 September which encouraged people to step away from the picket lines. We need a date for when it will reconvene. We all agree that...

Topical Issue Debate: Beef Industry (17 Oct 2019)

Michael Fitzmaurice: I, too, thank the Minister of State for his reply. There are a number of issues on which clarification is needed. Where stands the price index promised a month ago? As pointed out by the Minister of State, threatening behaviour serves no purpose and none of us here would agree with it. In regard to the judgments hanging over people's heads, we need a goodwill gesture such as a phone call...
