Written Answers — Department of Education and Skills: Departmental Funding (18 Dec 2018)

Eoin Ó Broin: 178. To ask the Minister for Education and Skills the status of the emergency funding for repair work at a centre (details supplied); the reason his Department has not yet replied to the Dublin and Dún Laoghaire Education and Training Board report that was submitted in October 2018; and when the funding will be approved and provided. [52721/18]

Written Answers — Department of Education and Skills: Autism Support Services (18 Dec 2018)

Eoin Ó Broin: 238. To ask the Minister for Education and Skills the number of autism spectrum disorder, ASD, units in secondary schools in Clondalkin for the school year commencing September 2019; if the existing units and available places within them meet the demand for the number of young persons diagnosed with autism in the area; and his plans to provide new ASD units in secondary schools in the area in...

Local Government Bill 2018: Report and Final Stages (13 Dec 2018)

Eoin Ó Broin: There is nothing the Minister of State, Deputy Phelan has said with which I would disagree. I do not believe that anybody is arguing for it simply to be referred back to the two local authorities to do what they have not been able to do up to this point. I believe there should be urban area committees with a structured, formal mechanism for councillors from the municipal districts who are...

Local Government Bill 2018: Report and Final Stages (13 Dec 2018)

Eoin Ó Broin: Like a number of colleagues, when these amendments were tabled late on Monday of last week, I was quite critical of them, given that they are substantive, that they propose significant changes to local government structures and powers, and that we were given them at such a late stage without adequate time for pre-legislative scrutiny or proper consideration. I acknowledge, however, the...

Local Government Bill 2018: Report and Final Stages (13 Dec 2018)

Eoin Ó Broin: I support Deputy O'Brien. His amendment is sensible. It makes no sense whatsoever to go to the effort of having a plebiscite and then to give the Minister of the day the option of ignoring the result of the plebiscite. If it is not politically feasible, then let us not allow it to be legally possible. On that basis I am more than happy to support the amendment. I also wish to comment...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (13 Dec 2018)

Eoin Ó Broin: My question is in the context of the forthcoming Residential Tenancies (Amendment) Bill. As the Minister of Housing, Planning and Local Government will know, a number of families in transitional accommodation in Tallaght were recently issued with notices to quit from the voluntary service provider. As the Minister will further know, the provider issued these notices to quit because under...

Anti-Evictions Bill 2018: Second Stage [Private Members] (12 Dec 2018)

Eoin Ó Broin: On behalf of Sinn Féin, I welcome the Bill and the opportunity to discuss these very important topics. A number of the measures are similar to measures Sinn Féin and others have proposed, but unfortunately have not been passed over the past two and a half years. I disagree with the Minister and Taoiseach, who have described the Bill as too radical. While this is no criticism...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Housing, Planning and Local Government: Rebuilding Ireland: Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government. (12 Dec 2018)

Eoin Ó Broin: I thank the Minister for his opening statement. Before I ask my questions, I want to acknowledge the significant amount of work done by the departmental officials in terms of their preparation of the reports for today's meeting, particularly the pipeline and progress reports which are very detailed pieces of work. I have a series of questions on each of the pillars. We are almost half...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Housing, Planning and Local Government: Rebuilding Ireland: Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government. (12 Dec 2018)

Eoin Ó Broin: I do not think he will mind being called a capitalist. He will wear it as a badge of honour.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Housing, Planning and Local Government: Rebuilding Ireland: Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government. (12 Dec 2018)

Eoin Ó Broin: I wish to focus on the social housing output report. On the basis of the figures the Minister has given us, only 35% of the new builds have been delivered as of quarter 3, which means 65% remain to be delivered in the final quarter. That is very worrying. I know we will not know the final output until the end of the year but to have to deliver or complete 65% of the target in three months...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Housing, Planning and Local Government: Rebuilding Ireland: Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government. (12 Dec 2018)

Eoin Ó Broin: Are fines currently issued by the RTB?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Housing, Planning and Local Government: Rebuilding Ireland: Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government. (12 Dec 2018)

Eoin Ó Broin: That does not answer the question about the affordability of the start-off rent. That was my question.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Housing, Planning and Local Government: Rebuilding Ireland: Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government. (12 Dec 2018)

Eoin Ó Broin: If one has an EIB loan for 25 years for cost rental units, and one has to pay down that plus the fees for management and maintenance of the properties, one's start-off rent will be at a certain point because one has to pay all the costs over 25 years. If one has a 70% EIB loan and a 30% CALF loan and one pays down the CALF loan over an additional ten years, that will give one 35 years to...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Housing, Planning and Local Government: Rebuilding Ireland: Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government. (12 Dec 2018)

Eoin Ó Broin: For cost rental.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Housing, Planning and Local Government: Rebuilding Ireland: Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government. (12 Dec 2018)

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Housing, Planning and Local Government: Rebuilding Ireland: Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government. (12 Dec 2018)

Eoin Ó Broin: We are hearing two different versions. Was it agreed or is it being considered? Who is telling the truth?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Housing, Planning and Local Government: Rebuilding Ireland: Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government. (12 Dec 2018)

Eoin Ó Broin: Is the Minister saying it is possible the Department could refuse the increase because it might not meet the public spending code, although that is not his desired outcome?

Written Answers — Department of Housing, Planning, and Local Government: Tenancy Protection Scheme (12 Dec 2018)

Eoin Ó Broin: 260. To ask the Minister for Housing, Planning, and Local Government if a housing provider is required to issue notices to quit in cases in which homeless persons or persons who have been homeless have licence agreements in emergency, transitional or own door accommodation that due to the length of time of the license risk accruing tenancy rights, placing the persons at risk of further...

Select Committee on Housing, Planning and Local Government: Estimates for Public Services 2018
Vote 34 - Housing, Planning and Local Government (Supplementary)
(11 Dec 2018)

Eoin Ó Broin: I thank the Minister for his opening statement. Unlike the Secretary General of the Department of Finance, members of this committee will not be complaining about overspend or requests for additional moneys. Our questions are friendly questions on this occasion. I will stick to the Estimates and we will deal with policy issues at tomorrow's committee meeting. I wish to get more detail...
