Remediation of Dwellings Damaged By the Use of Defective Concrete Blocks Bill 2022: Second Stage (30 Jun 2022)

Eoin Ó Broin: I welcome homeowners from Clare, Limerick, Mayo, Sligo and Donegal, who are in the Gallery today. I commend all of them, and all affected homeowners, many of whom have been campaigning for a decade. In particular, I commend them on the incredibly intense level of campaigning over the past 12 months, on the streets and on social media, and their engagement with the Minister and his...

Regulation of Providers of Building Works and Building Control (Amendment) Bill 2022: From the Seanad (29 Jun 2022)

Eoin Ó Broin: I am happy to allow the Minister of State to answer Deputy Boyd Barrett's question.

Regulation of Providers of Building Works and Building Control (Amendment) Bill 2022: From the Seanad (29 Jun 2022)

Eoin Ó Broin: I thank the Minister of State. My apologies for being late. Unfortunately, I have just come from a meeting to try to finalise amendments to another Bill for which amendments have to be submitted by 11 a.m. tomorrow, in spite of the fact that Second Stage of the Bill has not even started, let alone finished and, apparently, we will only be given a very short amount of time. As regards...

Regulation of Providers of Building Works and Building Control (Amendment) Bill 2022: From the Seanad (29 Jun 2022)

Eoin Ó Broin: May I make a final response? I will not labour the point but our job is not just to say whether we are for or against what the Government is doing. Deputies Cian O'Callaghan, Boyd Barrett and I spend a lot of time in committee. We take our job as legislators very seriously. Even when it comes to the things the Government is doing that we support, we want to make sure the language and the...

Regulation of Providers of Building Works and Building Control (Amendment) Bill 2022: From the Seanad (29 Jun 2022)

Eoin Ó Broin: You are the boss.

Written Answers — Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade: International Relations (28 Jun 2022)

Eoin Ó Broin: 386. To ask the Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade if a French military exercise is taking place off the south-west coast of Ireland during the end of June and early July 2022; if notification of the exercise was provided to his Department; and if there are concerns about the impact on marine biodiversity as a result of the exercise. [33781/22]

Written Answers — Department of Education and Skills: Special Educational Needs (28 Jun 2022)

Eoin Ó Broin: 595. To ask the Minister for Education and Skills the education supports and school place options that are available for a child (details supplied) who is currently unable to access a school place appropriate to their special needs. [33635/22]

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Defective Building Materials (23 Jun 2022)

Eoin Ó Broin: I will be super quick. It is not just the cap. It is also the rates. Head 13 is very clear that the Minister cannot review the rates until 12 months after commencement. Even if a property is well below the cap, if the NSAI recommends foundations to be included, if somebody has a 1,000 sq. ft. home, for example, they will not be able to enter into the scheme and get full remediation until...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Housing Schemes (23 Jun 2022)

Eoin Ó Broin: They were not voids. The vast majority were not voids.

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Housing Schemes (23 Jun 2022)

Eoin Ó Broin: Answer the question. It is a simple question.

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Housing Schemes (23 Jun 2022)

Eoin Ó Broin: The Minister of State does not have the answers, if we are honest.

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Housing Schemes (23 Jun 2022)

Eoin Ó Broin: The Ministers just provoke us too much.

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Housing Policy (23 Jun 2022)

Eoin Ó Broin: I cannot stress enough the urgency of this. I will take the example of a couple in my constituency who are €500 or €1,000 above the social housing eligibility threshold. If they were to avail of the cost rental that is coming through Tuath in Kilcarbery, they would be spending almost 50% of their net income on rent. Cost rental does not work for that cohort. What that tells...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Housing Policy (23 Jun 2022)

Eoin Ó Broin: 6. To ask the Minister for Housing, Planning, and Local Government if he will provide an update on the review of the social housing income thresholds; and if he will indicate whether he intends to raise the thresholds. [33082/22]

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Housing Policy (23 Jun 2022)

Eoin Ó Broin: I understand the Minister received in December a copy of the review of the social housing income eligibility threshold from the departmental officials. This is a matter that requires an urgent decision. More and more people are being done out of access to social housing supports. More and more people are having their social housing supports withdrawn. We even have a situation where people...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Housing Policy (23 Jun 2022)

Eoin Ó Broin: I thank the Minister of State. My problem is that he did not answer the question. The information he has given us is very useful although I think everybody in the House knows it. The question is very simple. When will the review be published? What resolution of this is the Minister considering? People are being taken off the housing list week on week. I have been contacted about two...

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Housing Provision (23 Jun 2022)

Eoin Ó Broin: 5. To ask the Minister for Housing, Planning, and Local Government the reason for the delay in the sale of affordable housing in Cork city and south County Dublin. [33474/22]

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Housing Provision (23 Jun 2022)

Eoin Ó Broin: Two developments where affordable housing has been significantly delayed are in Boherboy Road in Cork and Kilcarbery Grange in my constituency. The Boherboy Road development was substantially completed at the end of the year but the properties have still not been put on the market for affordable purchasers. The Kilcarbery Grange development was put on the market recently but eligible...

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Housing Provision (23 Jun 2022)

Eoin Ó Broin: I thank the Minister. It is significant that we are talking about very small numbers of homes in both locations and, in fact, in the case of a number of the homes that the Minister cited in Cork, while they may be completed this year, it is unlikely that they will be purchased or occupied until next year. That is, however, a separate matter. My understanding of the problem that has...

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Housing Provision (23 Jun 2022)

Eoin Ó Broin: With respect to the pipeline in my own constituency, the pipeline of affordable homes is not very strong. It is anaemic to say the least. There will not be 100 affordable homes in Rathcoole because Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil councillors voted to de-zone the land. We may get some social housing in there, but greatly reduced from what was originally planned. Likewise, while we have...
