Road Traffic and Roads Bill 2021: Second Stage (Resumed) (18 Nov 2021)

Neasa Hourigan: What I want to talk about today is scooters. In the interests of full disclosure, I should say that I own a scooter. I love my e-scooter, which is really handy for somebody like me in Dublin 1 or Dublin 7, as my constituency of Dublin Central is very populous but fairly compact. For people who live somewhere like I do, a scooter is a game-changer. They can get around the city quickly and...

I would like to return to the middle income...

Committee on Budgetary Oversight: Inflation: Discussion (Resumed) (17 Nov 2021)

Neasa Hourigan: I have two follow-up questions on that issue. Is it fair to say that addressing that issue would require something like an increase in child benefit or the working family payment to target those particular households? While I accept that the losses might be relatively low, is it correct that this is having a more significant impact on particular groups like lone parents than on other families?

Committee on Budgetary Oversight: Inflation: Discussion (Resumed) (17 Nov 2021)

Neasa Hourigan: Dr. Doorley kindly answered my other question, which was on lone parents, so I will move to base effects. I must admit to not being fully aware of this aspect. Is it possible for somebody to unpack that a little? What are the base effects as we are reading through the latter half of 2020 and to what extent is current inflation a result of those base effects?

Committee on Budgetary Oversight: Inflation: Discussion (Resumed) (17 Nov 2021)

Neasa Hourigan: Is the impact of the base effect relatively stable throughout various sectors or is it oversized in some sectors and undersized in others?

Is it likely that the ECB will increase rates in the coming months or year? What mechanisms does our Central Bank have to control or mitigate the rate of inflation?

Committee on Budgetary Oversight: Inflation: Discussion (Resumed) (17 Nov 2021)

Neasa Hourigan: I do not see any hands raised among the members on the call so I will finish with a question that the witnesses might possibly hate because it is rather open-ended. What policies do they, as experts in the field, think the Government should consider due to the increased level of inflation we are seeing?
