Richard Bruton: 236. To ask the Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection if her attention has been drawn the fact that actors can get very sporadic access to work which would force them to sign off PUP but which would not represent a sustainable opportunity to re-establish their self-employed income on a medium term basis; and if a special category under PUP or some other mechanism could be...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation: Trade Between Ireland and the Palestinian Territories: Discussion (14 Jul 2021)

Richard Bruton: I thank the witnesses for coming in. There is widespread discontent with the policies being pursued in the settlements in the occupied territories. The issue is what way should Ireland go about addressing this. I would like whether the witnesses support what the Irish Government is trying to achieve in making progress on this ongoing and difficult situation, which is causing so much hardship.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation: Trade Between Ireland and the Palestinian Territories: Discussion (14 Jul 2021)

Richard Bruton: What worries me is that members of Mr. Lovatt's organisation has described our ambassador in Israel as a Zionist. That is not helpful to developing policy in this arena. While there can be clearly different views about what the best approach should be, it is not right that when an Irish civil servant presents the Irish Government case that should be the reaction. I do not know whether Mr....

The fundamental issue is with regard to the issues being sought in that the legal adviser to the Government, the Attorney General, has said they are not possible. Are there elements of the case Mr. Ó...

Finance (Local Property Tax) (Amendment) Bill 2021: Second Stage (13 Jul 2021)

Richard Bruton: Did I concede too soon?

Finance (Local Property Tax) (Amendment) Bill 2021: Second Stage (13 Jul 2021)

Richard Bruton: I welcome this Bill. It is important that a tax like this be updated regularly. We are eight years on from the original evaluation in 2013. There is never a good time to update the valuations but we saw the consequence of not doing that. The revaluation of commercial property caused untold controversy because valuations that had been set years ago on the basis of rental values were...

Richard Bruton: I thank our guests for those fantastic presentations. The question I am interested in was also raised by Dr. Caulfield. If it is true that 20 cars are idle for every one that is moving, there is a massive gain to be had if we can develop a shared vehicle model. I am just trying to get an understanding of how we can radically shift that. That seems to be the easiest thing we could do....
