Ábhair Shaincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Matters (25 May 2022)

Catherine Connolly: I wish to advise the House of the following matters in respect of which notice has been given under Standing Order 37A and the name of the Member in each case: (1) Deputies Paul Murphy and Richard Boyd Barrett - to discuss the Oxfam wealth report; (2) Deputy Cathal Crowe - to ask the Minister for Transport if he will accede to the request made by Clare County Council for funding to be made...

Income Inequality

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Income Inequality (25 May 2022)

Paul Murphy: I thank Oxfam for the annual report it publishes in the run-up to Davos highlighting the obscene and growing wealth inequality in our world. This year's report is entitled Profiting from Pain and it shows how billionaires have, quite literally, profited from the pain of ordinary people. One thing the report highlights, which the Government does not like to talk about, is the fact that while...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Income Inequality (25 May 2022)

Richard Boyd Barrett: The rich get richer and the poor get poorer. That is a fact that is revealed yet again, as it is year after year, in the Oxfam report. It is not just a left-wing slogan; it is a fact. While the cost of living is crucifying and impoverishing tens of millions of people across the world, the world's billionaires and multimillionaires are getting richer by the day. The two things are directly...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Income Inequality (25 May 2022)

Seán Fleming: I am pleased to have the opportunity to contribute to this discussion on Oxfam's recent global report on inequality levels. The report draws attention to important issues around wealth and income inequality, cost-of-living pressures and how policy in advanced economies can respond to these global challenges. In particular, the report highlights the negative effect the Covid-19 pandemic has...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Refugee Resettlement Programme (24 May 2022)

Mary Butler: I thank the Deputy for raising this matter. He is absolutely right that local communities have been to the fore over the past three months in responding to and welcoming our Ukrainian neighbours, who have had to flee their country. It is vital that Departments and public bodies work together to provide the best holistic response to ensure the safety of, and provide support to, people...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Refugee Resettlement Programme (24 May 2022)

Chris Andrews: The Government did not need a report to tell us the building is uninhabitable because a cursory look confirms it is not fit for anybody to live in. There is a development company that is willing to give labour for free and make it habitable. It wants to work with fire safety people to ensure it is habitable and safe. It could be used on an emergency basis and it is not a long-term solution...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Refugee Resettlement Programme (24 May 2022)

Mary Butler: I thank the Deputy for his comments. I do not think anybody ten or 15 years ago could have pre-empted that Mr. Putin would invade Ukraine and had the building ready as a result. I do not have the history of the Baggot Street hospital.

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Refugee Resettlement Programme (24 May 2022)

Chris Andrews: It could have been redeveloped for Dublin's homeless population.

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Refugee Resettlement Programme (24 May 2022)

Mary Butler: I know it is a substantial building. I should be clear and will put this on the record again. The Deputy mentioned that the HSE has its fingers in this, but the HSE submitted a list of potentially suitable properties to the Department of Housing, Heritage and Local Government for use as multi-occupancy accommodation. Baggot Street hospital was included in that list. I am replying on...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Refugee Resettlement Programme (24 May 2022)

Cuireadh an Dáil ar athló ar 10.48 p.m. go dtí 9.12 a.m., Dé Céadaoin, an 25 Bealtaine 2022. The Dáil adjourned at at 10.48 p.m. until 9.12 a.m. on Wednesday, 25 May 2022.

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Mental Health Services (24 May 2022)

Mark Ward: I will give the Minister of State some figures. More than 8,000 children are waiting on appointments of primary care psychology, 3,000 of whom are waiting for more than a year. In excess of 4,000 children are waiting for CAMHS appointment, of whom more than 400 are waiting more than a year. If these children get the service they need at an early age, they are less likely to need the more...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Mental Health Services (24 May 2022)

Bríd Smith: The Minister of State says she was informed on 11 May that there was a problem with staffing. She was probably informed on 11 May but the Department and the HSE had known that there was a problem with staffing. As I said earlier, it is like Groundhog Day. We can go right back to 2017 to a replica with the same number of beds and the same period of time. The question is: what will the...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Mental Health Services (24 May 2022)

Joan Collins: The waiting list for CAMHS nationally was 3,500 in December of last year. We do not yet have the figures but it is up to, more likely, 4,000. Cutting these beds in Linn Dara must have an impact on children accessing those needs that they can access there. I am asking the Minister of State, as others have asked, to sit down and discuss recruitment and retention with the PNA. It has to be done.
