Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Water Services (14 Jul 2022)

Michael Moynihan: I thank the Ceann Comhairle for allowing me the opportunity to discuss the village of Castlemagner in north County Cork. Castlemagner is a beautiful village situated almost midway between Kanturk and Mallow. There was significant development in the village more than 15 years ago. We have been working for some time with Cork County Council. Councillor Bernard Moynihan put considerable work...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Water Services (14 Jul 2022)

Malcolm Noonan: I agree with the points made about Castlemagner. They apply to all our small towns and villages. We launched the Croí Cónaithe towns fund this morning. A lot of Government policies are converging to try to attract families back to living in small communities. It is vital that such communities can grow in a sustainable way. I will outline the position in regard to Irish...

Summer Economic Statement: Statements (Resumed) (14 Jul 2022)

Malcolm Noonan: While I am on my feet, I thank the ushers and all the staff here for the past couple of days. It has been a really busy few weeks here and I want to say a huge thank you to them all. It has been long hours on all of them and I want to use the opportunity to say that while I am here. I thank all Deputies for their contributions. I have stayed here for two hours of them. The Cabinet...

Summer Economic Statement: Statements (Resumed) (14 Jul 2022)

Emer Higgins: Budget 2023 takes place against a backdrop of real uncertainty. People are feeling that uncertainty in their pockets at the moment. Between a war on European soil, the ever-present pandemic, the rising cost of living and the prospect of a potential UK trade war, these are no doubt challenging times. I am relieved to have steady and experienced financial leadership at a time like this. It...

Summer Economic Statement: Statements (Resumed) (14 Jul 2022)

Catherine Connolly: As the week goes on and I listen to myself talking, I could say, "Is there any point?" I read the summer economic statement and I thank the Minister for setting out the parameters for what is possible within a budget. I was inspired to talk today having also read that HSE officials had attended the launch of a 60-bed private hospital in Benidorm. I did not realise the HSE has a commercial...

Summer Economic Statement: Statements (Resumed) (14 Jul 2022)

Thomas Pringle: This has been an interesting debate on the summer economic statement. The document provides a snapshot of what is happening. On paper, things are going exceptionally well, with Government Members saying how great things are. When you look in more detail at what is happening and how people are reacting, the problem is people are just trying to survive. They should, in normal circumstances,...

Summer Economic Statement: Statements (Resumed) (14 Jul 2022)

James O'Connor: It is very welcome that we have the opportunity to contribute in the Dáil on the summer economic statement but also to reflect on the economic circumstances in which the State finds itself. In recent weeks, many people across the country have seen the extraordinary and cynical attempt by the Opposition, and more so Sinn Féin, to undermine the public's confidence in our Government....

Summer Economic Statement: Statements (Resumed) (14 Jul 2022)

Martin Browne: It is if you are not sleeping in a car.

Summer Economic Statement: Statements (Resumed) (14 Jul 2022)

James O'Connor: The Government has been doing its level best over the course of the last two and a half years, since we came into power, to support families that are struggling and we will continue to do that. In advance of the budget, we should take stock of the situation in the world economy. We are facing unprecedented uncertainty, which has driven large increases in interest rates. The euro and the...

Summer Economic Statement: Statements (Resumed) (14 Jul 2022)

Martin Browne: I agree with Deputy O'Connor on one thing. The Government did not get things right. With its record on housing, health and childcare, it has got them completely wrong. Another Deputy a few minutes ago talked about uncertainty. I will tell both Deputies about uncertainty. Sinn Féin Deputies know low and middle-income families as well. The Government does not have not a monopoly on...

Summer Economic Statement: Statements (Resumed) (14 Jul 2022)

Jennifer Carroll MacNeill: It is welcome to work within a budgetary structure in which we have a measured opportunity to reflect on income tax, the current economic position, the challenges the country faces and the necessary and appropriate budgetary responses. I always welcome the process of the summer economic statements and the autumn statements because it shows a State that is thinking, planning and reflecting on...

Summer Economic Statement: Statements (Resumed) (14 Jul 2022)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: I thank Deputy Devlin. We will go for the view from the sunny south east to Deputy Shanahan.

Summer Economic Statement: Statements (Resumed) (14 Jul 2022)

Matt Shanahan: Everett McKinley Dirksen, a US politician and civil rights activist, coined the famous phrase, "A billion here, a billion there, and pretty soon you're talking real money". Never in the history of the State have we had as large a sum of public money to disburse. It is €85.8 billion next year, up 6.5% on last year. With that also, never has our national debt been higher. It is...

Summer Economic Statement: Statements (Resumed) (14 Jul 2022)

Patricia Ryan: The summer economic statement is a key component of the annual budget cycle providing an economic context and setting outside of the parameters of the budget. Unfortunately, this year's statement has not provided any certainty to households struggling with the immediate effect of the cost-of-living crisis and serious questions surround the credibility of some of the figures published. It...

Summer Economic Statement: Statements (Resumed) (14 Jul 2022)

Cormac Devlin: I welcome the opportunity to examine the summer economic statement. Clearly, we have a challenging period ahead. The Government was not found wanting when it came to supporting incomes, jobs and enterprise during the Covid-19 pandemic. People recognise that the pandemic was handled reasonably well. However, the increased cost of living is having an impact on their standard of living....

Summer Economic Statement: Statements (Resumed) (14 Jul 2022)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: For the record, it is well-established parliamentary practice for a Minister of State to sit in for part or all of a debate, as the case may be. There is nothing extraordinary about the Minister of State, Deputy Noonan, being here. I do know that Deputy Boyd Barrett intends no offence to him.

Summer Economic Statement: Statements (Resumed) (14 Jul 2022)

Richard Boyd Barrett: I did not mean any offence to him. I am annoyed the senior Ministers will not hear the spokespeople from the different groups.

Summer Economic Statement: Statements (Resumed) (14 Jul 2022)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: I know that. Let us be aware that there is nothing-----
