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...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Housing, Planning and Local Government: Inflationary Costs in the Construction Industry: Discussion (28 Jun 2022)

Eoin Ó Broin: I thank Ms Hegarty, Mr. Doyle and Ms Donaghy for their presentations. Starting with the Irish Council for Social Housing, the committee would be interested in what our guests are hearing from their members about what is happening on the ground at the moment with respect to both what I call own developments, usually Part 8s but also turnkeys, and Part Vs. I am referring to projects that are...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Housing, Planning and Local Government: Inflationary Costs in the Construction Industry: Discussion (28 Jun 2022)

Eoin Ó Broin: I apologise for cutting across but is the council noticing any variation with fixed-price contracts where there is tendering for its own direct delivery versus prices for turnkeys versus Part Vs, or is it the same across the three delivery streams?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Housing, Planning and Local Government: Inflationary Costs in the Construction Industry: Discussion (28 Jun 2022)

Eoin Ó Broin: I apologise for cutting across again, but is it Ms Donaghy's understanding the council's members will have access to the burden-sharing mechanism the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform, Deputy Michael McGrath, has introduced? Has the council got the technical detail of that yet? In there sense of whether that is going to work or not?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Housing, Planning and Local Government: Inflationary Costs in the Construction Industry: Discussion (28 Jun 2022)

Eoin Ó Broin: I will pick up on Deputy McAuliffe's point because this is an important discussion. Dublin city will have a problem both on affordable cost rental and affordable purchase under the affordable housing fund. Deputy McAuliffe outlined price ranges and if we go to the suburbs or the project mentioned by Mr. Doyle earlier, they are generally out of inner urban Dublin sites in various ways. That...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Housing, Planning and Local Government: Inflationary Costs in the Construction Industry: Discussion (28 Jun 2022)

Eoin Ó Broin: And on the VAT?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Housing, Planning and Local Government: Inflationary Costs in the Construction Industry: Discussion (28 Jun 2022)

Eoin Ó Broin: I ask for the Chair's indulgence. From an embodied carbon point of view, in particular, linking lower embodied carbon residential developments with a reduced VAT rate makes an awful lot of sense. I was asking about VAT for new build social housing because that is kind of different. Is there a reason that would work for new build social housing?
