Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (21 Oct 2021)

Eamon Ryan: I will have to come back to the Deputy about the trees on another day.

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (21 Oct 2021)

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (21 Oct 2021)

Pearse Doherty: In its wisdom, the Government in July pegged rents to inflation. That was at a time when we were warning about rising prices and my colleague, Deputy Eoin Ó Broin, said this measure was too little, too late, and tenants would be left at the mercy of unpredictable and high inflation. Three months on, what has happened? It is exactly as we said. Inflation is now running at over...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (21 Oct 2021)

Peadar Tóibín: The partition of Ireland is the most damaging event in the history of Ireland since the Famine. It set in train decades of second-class citizenship for nationalists and Catholics in the North of Ireland. It institutionalised discrimination and state violence and sundered thousands of villages, towns and communities throughout the Border region. It also hammered the social and economic...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (21 Oct 2021)

Catherine Connolly: I am loath to interrupt the Deputy while the clock is running, but he has repeatedly mentioned the President. There is a long-standing practice that Members should not draw the President into any argument or ask the Government to comment on the President. I ask the Deputy to bear that in mind.

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (21 Oct 2021)

Peadar Tóibín: I will bear that in mind.

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (21 Oct 2021)

Catherine Connolly: I was going to wait until the end but he has repeatedly done it.

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (21 Oct 2021)

Peadar Tóibín: How can two arms of the Oireachtas take opposite decisions at the same time and for both of those decisions to be considered the correct decision? It is absolutely impossible. In the words of the former Fine Gael Minister, Paddy Donegan, is this Government not a thundering disgrace?

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (21 Oct 2021)

Eamon Ryan: A Leas-Cheann Comhairle, I very much take on board your words of warning in this regard. However, in this case I think we are on safer ground because in this I am absolutely certain there is no difference or any controversy with regard to the President's decision. The Government fully accepted and understood that his decision in this regard was taken absolutely properly. His role on this...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (21 Oct 2021)

Peadar Tóibín: There is no doubt that reconciliation is critical, but I think there is a misunderstanding in this State about what reconciliation means. Reconciliation is built on pluralism and by definition pluralism accepts there are differences and respects those differences. Reconciliation is about reaching out the hand of friendship. It does not mean that we have to dress up in each other's...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (21 Oct 2021)

Eamon Ryan: The shared island unit within the Department of the Taoiseach is a prime example. One of the things we did with the shared island unit was to start engaging with environmental NGOs and others in the North, recognising that the shared island is a shared environment. Pollution and issues like climate change recognise no borders. Brexit gives rise to concerns that we could end up with two...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (21 Oct 2021)

Michael Fitzmaurice: I welcome yesterday's announcement on agriculture. I agree with convergence, as outlined in Pillar 1. With Pillar 2, there is much concern among the communities that deliver LEADER that there is a shortfall of approximately €70 million. This is at a time when communities and especially the agricultural sector are stepping up to the mark when it comes to climate action. In this...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (21 Oct 2021)

Eamon Ryan: My Department has not strenuously fought against the payment of such costs. We received the review report on 1 October. We had to check its contents with the Office of the Attorney General to ensure we were able to pass the report to the stakeholders, including the families. As soon as I was given the all-clear for that from the Attorney General's office, which I believe was on 14 October,...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (21 Oct 2021)

Pearse Doherty: Did the Department object to the application?

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (21 Oct 2021)

Eamon Ryan: No. As I said, I have already engaged with the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform to make sure that we can engage with the families and ensure that this issue is not something to add to the terrible hurt that they have experienced in this affair.

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (21 Oct 2021)

Ivana Bacik: I ask the Minister to provide information on the status of the carbon budgets and a clear timeline for the publication of the carbon budgets and the climate action plan. With just over a week to the start of the crucial climate talks at COP26 in Glasgow and with only nine years to the 2030 deadline for the achievement of our ambitious and welcome 51% reduction target, what is lacking is a...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (21 Oct 2021)

Eamon Ryan: On the timelines with regard to carbon budgets, we have to be careful here because the Climate Change Advisory Council is independent in the way it has been established and in the way it sets out its work. However, I understand it is meeting on 25 October, which is next week, and I hope and expect, subject to it being satisfied with its process, that it will be able to issue the first of the...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (21 Oct 2021)

Ivana Bacik: I entirely agree with the Minister about the necessity for urgency and the scale of the challenge facing us. I am somewhat dismayed to hear that it will be 3 November and later in November before we will see consideration by the Government of the draft climate action plan and publication of the carbon budgets. That appears to be quite significant slippage, particularly as COP26 will have...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (21 Oct 2021)

Eamon Ryan: I accept the Deputy's point about the date. To be honest, the decision was whether to go out straight away, the day after the Climate Change Advisory Council hopefully publishes its budget approach. I thought that was inappropriate and it was better to give that a certain amount of time. In addition, the Dáil would not be sitting and I would prefer to come back to this House on 3...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Inquiry into the Death of Mr. Shane O'Farrell (21 Oct 2021)

Catherine Connolly: We are out of time but the Deputy might wish to make a brief closing remark.
