Estimates for Public Services 2019: Motion (12 Dec 2019)

Tommy Broughan: Fourteen months ago, in the run-in to budget 2019, I advocated additional new net policy spending, including new revenues, especially for the Departments of Health, Education and Skills, Housing, Planning and Local Government, Justice and Equality, and Children and Youth Affairs. However, the Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil austerity Governments since 2008 have resolutely refused to fund...

Estimates for Public Services 2019: Motion (12 Dec 2019)

Patrick O'Donovan: I thank the Deputies who contributed to the debate. I regularly attend Question Time with the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform, Deputy Donohoe. I read all of the parliamentary questions that come in from other areas. Every day, a new demand for spending is made in the House. In one day, the demands made in just one group of parliamentary questions clocked up hundreds of millions...

Estimates for Public Services 2019: Motion (12 Dec 2019)

Pearse Doherty: The Estimates presented before the House today make a complete and utter mockery of the budget process. Today, in less than 45 minutes, the House is deciding to allocate an additional €634 million of expenditure which was not accounted for in the Government's budget. That is the equivalent of the unallocated amount in any of the budgets we have dealt with in the last several years....

Estimates for Public Services 2019: Motion (12 Dec 2019)

Joan Burton: I refer to the distress caused by this Government in the areas of health and housing. It is really shocking to read the figures in relation to the Department of Health where yet again the Government has introduced a Supplementary Estimate plus other funding of almost €500 million. The Minister for Health has failed to fulfil his responsibility. Despite the fact that the total...

Estimates for Public Services 2019: Motion (12 Dec 2019)

Barry Cowen: In case the Minister does not know, these are Supplementary Estimates for public services to authorise the relevant Departments to spend more than was budgeted for in budget 2019. My party will be abstaining on the motion. Fine Gael likes to tell itself and the country that it is responsible in its management of the public finances, but the facts are clear and they tell a much different...

Estimates for Public Services 2019: Motion (12 Dec 2019)

Patrick O'Donovan: I apologise for being delayed in getting to the Chamber for the debate on this motion. The Revised Estimates Volume 2019 sets out total net voted expenditure for the year of €53.9 billion. On budget day, the requirements for a number of Supplementary Estimates for 2019 were set out in the 2020 expenditure report. The total amount proposed in respect of substantive Supplementary...
