Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (15 Dec 2021)

Claire Kerrane: Hard-pressed families cannot continue to wait for support when it comes to soaring energy bills. The €100 support announced by the Government earlier this week is welcome, but it is modest. The Irish Examinerreported last week that some households are facing bills of over an extra €1,000 for electricity and gas next year. While this €100 support will bring some relief,...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (15 Dec 2021)

Michael McGrath: The Government absolutely acknowledges that many individuals and families are under pressure at this time, particularly with rising fuel costs and electricity costs and so on. It is important to say that the measure we agreed at Cabinet on Tuesday to provide a rebate or a discount, as such, of €100 off every domestic electricity bill is in addition to the targeted measures that were...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (15 Dec 2021)

Alan Kelly: The Tánaiste could not be here today, but he was on the "Pat Kenny Show" on radio, basically telling us that new restrictions will be coming in in respect of social mixing, contact tracing and international travel. Days are important. I ask the Government to meet tomorrow night rather than on Friday to make decisions. With international travel, for instance, the EU Commission is...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (15 Dec 2021)

Michael McGrath: It is important to say that the updating of the technology to take account of the booster dose should be done at a time when people have had the opportunity to have that dose. We are now at a point where around 1.3 million booster doses and third doses for the immunocompromised have been administered. We are going to accelerate the roll-out of the booster vaccine significantly. The Deputy...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (15 Dec 2021)

Gary Gannon: I think it is good fortune that the Minister of Public Expenditure and Reform is here to answer questions today, because I have a very specific question that relates to public expenditure. The grant for minor works arrived in schools today. We all welcome the fact that there was a 50% increase on the grant for the minor works which, is it assumed, will be used to install HEPA filters. Some...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (15 Dec 2021)

Michael McGrath: I have had a fair bit of engagement with the Minister for Education in relation to this issue in recent weeks. The minor works grant is normally paid in November or December. It is normally at a level of around €30 million for primary schools, as the Deputy has acknowledged. What was announced and paid out is a sum of €62 million, which is more than double the grant in total....

Gary Gannon: That is not the clarification I was asking for.

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: You can only ask one question.

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (15 Dec 2021)

Gary Gannon: I asked about the 2023 grant.

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (15 Dec 2021)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: Deputy, you are out of order. I call Deputy Bríd Smith.

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (15 Dec 2021)

Michael Lowry: The most important thing the Minister has said is that the Government is waiting for the HSE to deliver a plan to it. We in Tipperary and Roscrea all know what the HSE will deliver to us. It will deliver a short-term unit with no long-stay beds. The future of Dean Maxwell is now a clear-cut political decision. The unit is doomed as it is at present unless there is an explicit and clear...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (15 Dec 2021)

Michael McGrath: The Deputy rightly highlighted the HSE's plan and intentions, which are to develop a larger short-term respite care facility for north Tipperary and to retain the current day services, to include dementia services. The Deputy is correct in making that point, but the Government, through the work of the Minister of State, Deputy Butler, will engage further with the HSE and meet with the HSE...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (15 Dec 2021)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: The Premier County is leading today. I call Deputy Mattie McGrath.

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (15 Dec 2021)

Mattie McGrath: I gcónaí. I thank you, a Cheann Comhairle, the Leas-Cheann Comhairle, Peter Finnegan, all the staff, all the Members of the House, the ushers, the Garda Síochána and anyone else with whom we interact for their courtesy throughout the year. I wish them a happy, holy and peaceful Christmas. I am delighted that the Minister, Deputy Catherine Martin, is here. I wish to...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (15 Dec 2021)

Michael McGrath: It is a hat-trick for the Premier County today. It is good to engage with Deputy McGrath. The Minister, Deputy Catherine Martin, has had ongoing engagement with representatives of the sector and, in fact, her officials met with them again yesterday. The Minister attended the meeting along with me and the Tánaiste on 6 December. The MEAI, to which the Deputy referred, was in...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (15 Dec 2021)

Alan Kelly: It must be the spirit of Christmas but that was a very good response. Could the Minister confirm that HIQA has now agreed not to do what was proposed on 1 January? I presume it will communicate the decision to the Dean Maxwell through the HSE and to other homes similarly affected across the country. The Minister might confirm whether it is just the Dean Maxwell. I very much welcome the...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (15 Dec 2021)

Michael McGrath: Each long-stay setting is different so the position that HIQA and the HSE adopt is particular to each. Therefore, the answer I am giving relates specifically to the Dean Maxwell. The HSE is in constant contact with patients and their families so they can receive updates. It is important that reassurance be given that no resident will be asked to leave the Dean Maxwell in advance of 1...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (15 Dec 2021)

Alan Kelly: There will be new ones.

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (15 Dec 2021)

Michael McGrath: There is a commitment given by the HSE to continue to admit residents unless it is instructed otherwise by HIQA. It is important to be clear on that caveat and qualifier. If a direction is issued by HIQA, that will need to be complied with. We take the HIQA reports and regulations extremely seriously. They are there to protect standards and safeguard residents and staff so it is important...
