Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Housing Schemes (14 Oct 2021)

Malcolm Noonan: I thank the Deputy for raising this important matter. I am glad to have an opportunity to discuss the European committee ruling and, in particular, the regeneration budget and the regeneration of social housing and flat complexes in inner-city Dublin. These housing complexes are intrinsic to the city and have huge cultural and heritage significance but should be habitable to modern and...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Housing Schemes (14 Oct 2021)

Chris Andrews: I thank the Minister of State. It is important to state the vast majority of the residents of the flats complexes are hard-working, involved, active participants in their community. A huge number of them were working on the front line during the pandemic. They are committed to their community. When someone is hurt, they get behind them and stand with them. The new York Street...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Housing Schemes (14 Oct 2021)

Malcolm Noonan: The conditions the Deputy has described are unacceptable. When the issue was raised in relation to Oliver Bond House by Deputy Bríd Smith, I had direct contact with the residents association there. It has been very active in Oliver Bond House and I give it great credit for that. That approach from a residents association is good but we have to make inroads in resolving these issues....

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Ambulance Service (14 Oct 2021)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: The poor person on the floor wants the ambulance now, not whenever they receive the telephone call

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Ambulance Service (14 Oct 2021)

Anne Rabbitte: Exactly. It is important for us to understand what we are talking about and where some of the gaps in the service are. This model represents international best practice and has been highlighted by the Health Information and Quality Authority, HIQA, as a way to improve response times and NAS performance generally. Using this model does mean that non-serious or non-life-threatening calls...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Ambulance Service (14 Oct 2021)

Michael Moynihan: Over the last decade, the ambulance service was removed and after much lobbying and negotiations, we got the ambulance back. I am talking about the time that a general practitioner, GP, arrives at a patient's door, assesses the patient and says that an ambulance is needed to get the patient to hospital immediately. It takes 2.5 hours from that call until the ambulance gets to the door. Let...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Ambulance Service (14 Oct 2021)

Anne Rabbitte: I assure the House that the Government is committed to the strategic reform of the National Ambulance Service. I will take on board everything the Deputy has said. Let us have action and meet with the HSE and CHO 4 to see what plans they have to ensure that there are not repeated instances of what the Deputy has spoken about today. I know that Deputy MacSharry was also originally to be a...

Housing Schemes

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Housing Schemes (14 Oct 2021)

Chris Andrews: In budget 2022, the Government has effectively signalled that it has given up on inner city flat complexes. The Government has started waving the white flag. It feels to residents and me that the neglect will continue. The Government has turned its back on Dubliners living in flat complexes. I have consistently highlighted the shocking conditions that Dublin City Council residents have to...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Early Childhood Care and Education (14 Oct 2021)

Anne Rabbitte: Well-being has to be at the core of anything we do with the childcare model. We have the well-being of our children at the centre, along with the well-being of the staff, and the well-being of the families. It has to be embedded in the community. The Deputy mentioned disadvantaged areas. It is not embedded within our county development plan in rural Ireland. The city and county childcare...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Ambulance Service (14 Oct 2021)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: The next item I have selected is from Deputy Michael Moynihan, which is to discuss understaffing and resources in the ambulance services in counties Cork and Kerry. It is good to hear that the Deputy is looking after Kerry as well. The Minister of State, Deputy Anne Rabbitte, will respond.

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Ambulance Service (14 Oct 2021)

Michael Moynihan: I thank the Ceann Comhairle. I welcome the opportunity to speak on this matter. The issues here have manifested themselves over the past number of months, in particular, in respect of the waiting times for ambulances. In the area I come from in Duhallow, ambulances come from either Tralee or Cork, but they also might come from Limerick. In one instance, an ambulance came from Clare. A...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Ambulance Service (14 Oct 2021)

Anne Rabbitte: This is the second time I have had to reply about ambulance service in the House. The last time I replied to Deputy Ó Cuív and his colleagues. I am glad to report that they have since received their ambulance in Connemara. We have, therefore, made a little progress on ambulances. I am going to read a script on behalf of the Minister for Health, Deputy Stephen Donnelly. I will...

Early Childhood Care and Education

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Early Childhood Care and Education (14 Oct 2021)

Richard Bruton: I thank the Ceann Comhairle for the opportunity to raise this matter. I am pleased to have been associated with the establishment of a Fine Gael policy lab, which is essentially policy research that deals with first-hand experience. In the case of childcare, we spoke to more than 2,500 providers, parents and staff in the system. The conclusion was resounding. The message was that the...
