Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (16 Dec 2021)

Leo Varadkar: I thank the Deputy. More than €6.6 billion has been provided under the EWSS comprising of direct subsidy payments of €5.729 billion to companies and PRSI forgone of just under €1 billion. It has helped to protect approximately 700,000 jobs in 60,000 companies. The legislation incorporates important safeguards to ensure that it is correctly claimed by companies....

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (16 Dec 2021)

Richard Boyd Barrett: The public health measures that have been introduced out of concerns about Omicron, social gathering at Christmas and so on have once again impacted on particular groups of workers and sectors in our society in their ability to work at all or their ability to earn a sustainable living. While the Government has been quite laissez-faire, as has rightly just been referred to in many ways, in...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (16 Dec 2021)

Pádraig Mac Lochlainn: Today the HSE is to publish the executive summary of the long-awaited Brandon report into abuse at St. Joseph's Community Hospital in Stranorlar, County Donegal. My colleague, Deputy Doherty, among others, has been calling for the full report to be published. It has taken too long to get to this point. It has been a long and harrowing road for the families of those who suffered the most...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (16 Dec 2021)

Leo Varadkar: I thank the Deputy for raising this important issue today. I am very conscious that in discussing this matter, there are families who have been deeply impacted and who are deeply hurting. Anyone who has read or listened to the reports on the issue is going to be shocked and upset by what has happened. Certainly, when I read about it, I was horrified that this could have happened. I even...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (16 Dec 2021)

Pádraig Mac Lochlainn: The Dáil recently heard statements on the Grace case, which were deeply moving. That is the precedent and I welcome the fact that we will have statements on this report. As the Tánaiste said in his response, lessons have to be learned here. We need the full report to be published. We need all of the facts to be on the table and from that, hopefully, will come accountability and...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (16 Dec 2021)

Leo Varadkar: As I mentioned, the Minister of State and the Government are keen to see the full report published. The HSE has taken a view that this cannot be done and that only the executive summary can be published, and that is being done today. The Minister of State is engaging with the Attorney General to see if it can be published. That is certainly our preference. If it cannot be published in...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (16 Dec 2021)

Gerald Nash: Mr. Mark Paul broke the story in The Irish Timesyesterday that a company called MML Holdings, which owns O'Flaherty Holdings, received €1.8 million in taxpayer funded wage subsidies in 2020. It made profits of nearly €10 million last year but here is the rub. It also paid out a dividend of almost exactly the same amount as subsidy to Hailstone Holdings, an offshore company in...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Mortgage Interest Rates (16 Dec 2021)

Neale Richmond: The Minister of State rightly says that this is a small market with unique challenges, particularly in the requirement for retained capital, but we are part of the world’s largest economic block and the Single Market. We see in so many different areas the opportunity and competition that present not just to Irish consumers but also to Irish exporters in terms of goods and services....

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Mortgage Interest Rates (16 Dec 2021)

Seán Fleming: On that issue generally, the European Central Bank, ECB, has a much greater role in overseeing and regulating the Irish banks. As time progresses the ECB will try to equalise all the issues with reserves across the various member states. We have had a historic higher level of defaulting, we had a higher level of people not paying mortgages and we still have a higher level of arrears,...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Real Estate Investment Trusts (16 Dec 2021)

Seán Fleming: I propose to take Questions Nos. 101, 123, 130 and 141 together. Institutional investment in the commercial and residential property market continues to be critically important to ensure the ongoing supply of new housing. This is particularly the case in areas where there are viability challenges, in the area of high-density urban apartments for example. As with investment funds...
