Taoiseach a Ainmniú (Atógáil) - Nomination of Taoiseach (Resumed) (27 Jun 2020)

Alan Kelly: ...homes at an affordable price point for ordinary workers or affordable childcare so that parents do not have to make the choice between staying out of the workplace for a prolonged period or paying a second mortgage in childcare fees.

So far, in answer to other...

Jan O'Sullivan: ...urgent action is required". These are headings for three different pages in the report. My former colleague, Pat Rabbitte, when he was Minister did a considerable amount of work in changing the model of the licence fee and of the funding of RTÉ. This was continued by Senator Alex White.

Kevin Humphreys: ...Dún Laoghaire Harbour to the local authority, giving it a shortfall of €10 million with no real plan and meaning services were curtailed in Dún Laoghaire. If we were talking about raising car parking and toll bridge fees with a strategic view to reducing the impact of climate change, I would be supportive, but one has to do such things in a holistic manner.

Alan Kelly: ...it can be difficult to get people to join certain boards. However, we now see a situation where information that was being made public is no longer being made public.
