Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Student Accommodation (30 Nov 2021)

Aindrias Moynihan: The availability and cost of accommodation is a huge burden for students. I am not sure if the Minister has had the opportunity to engage directly with colleges or different stakeholders and property owners on the issue. I ask the Minister to outline what action is being taken to reduce that stress and burden on students and their families.

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Student Accommodation (30 Nov 2021)

Aindrias Moynihan: I thank the Minister for the overview. While some colleges do provide accommodation, others do not. Is the Minister focused on all colleges, or just on those already providing accommodation? There are places where we need to make a start. There are many private property owners involved, whether they are large apartment block owners or individuals who let houses. Has the Minister had...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Student Accommodation (30 Nov 2021)

Aindrias Moynihan: One of the big issues that students who can get accommodation face is the payment of rent in one big lump sum, either at the start of the year or twice or three times during the year. They are looking at paying at least of a third or a quarter of it in one go. We are now moving towards the end of the first term and that massive demand for money is reaching many households around the country...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Third Level Education (30 Nov 2021)

Aindrias Moynihan: I acknowledge the improvements that have been made in the SUSI grant. As the Minister mentioned, the non-adjacent rate is very significant for people around mid-Cork from Enniskean and Newcestown up around to Macroom and Millstreet and right across the top of the Boggeraghs as far as Millstreet, who would now be eligible for the higher rate of grant. The cost of rental accommodation for...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Third Level Education (30 Nov 2021)

Aindrias Moynihan: It is very important that any new funding scheme is going to support lifelong learning and that people who want to return to study later in life and who may have previously gained a qualification would not be excluded. They are excluded under the current model where applicants have to show progression. It is very important that a lifelong learning opportunity would be available with any...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Third Level Education (30 Nov 2021)

Aindrias Moynihan: While improvements have, to some extent, been made to the SUSI grant scheme, the scale of the grant is still well out of step with the financial burden that students experience, concerning accommodation or the cost of living, for example. We are some five years on from the Cassells report. Will the Minister outline the up-to-date position regarding that review and on having a new and...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Public Transport (25 Nov 2021)

Aindrias Moynihan: I thank the Minister for the overview of the scheme. The costs associated with medication and so on are acknowledged by the State with the long-term illness scheme and the yellow book. This is another big restriction on people and it is not at all being acknowledged. I appreciate the point on the supplement and it being on a case-by-case basis but we know people who have epilepsy are put...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Public Transport (25 Nov 2021)

Aindrias Moynihan: To return to my original question, is there an opportunity for a review so this could be teased out further because there is a very real need for that? The Minister should not worry about setting a precedent. That has already been done with the long-term illness scheme and the yellow book. People who have epilepsy are already have their condition acknowledged irrespective of income purely...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Public Transport (25 Nov 2021)

Aindrias Moynihan: There are up to 40,000 people around the country affected by epilepsy each day. If we leave aside briefly the medical impacts of it, one of the restrictions on people with epilepsy is that they are not allowed to drive. Their licence is restricted. As the Minister can imagine, that is a huge impediment on people in ordinary, everyday life, whether they are going to or from work, going...
