Seán Ó Fearghaíl: As 26 Deputies have indicated, will Members please adhere to the one minute provided?

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (14 Nov 2019)

Dara Calleary: I return to the so-called winter plan. As we have been speaking, the HSE national director of acute operations has said that no extra acute beds will be opened as part of this plan and that no extra staff will be appointed as part of the acute capacity element of the plan. That summary illustrates that it really is a sham plan that will not make a difference. Will the Minister for Health...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (14 Nov 2019)

Simon Coveney: I do not order the business for next week but I am sure that the Minister will be available to answer any of those questions. I outlined earlier what the winter plan is about, namely keeping people out of hospital and moving people through the hospital system as quickly as possible.

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: There is no need to go into it again.

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (14 Nov 2019)

Pearse Doherty: Speaking at the Banking and Payments Federation, the deputy governor of the Central Bank, Mr. Ed Sibley, said that Irish bankers were displaying echoes of pre-crisis arrogance. My view is that it never left them and I am glad that the penny is dropping in the Central Bank. He went on to say the banks were hitting mortgage holders with double the interest rates needed for them to make a...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (14 Nov 2019)

Brendan Howlin: The Oireachtas Joint Committee on Housing, Planning and Local Government is publishing a report today that calls for a national homeless family strategy that focuses on the needs of children. The Labour Party has been calling for this for some time. My colleague, Deputy Jan O'Sullivan, introduced the Housing (Homeless Families) Bill 2017, which passed Second Stage in the House in March...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (14 Nov 2019)

Simon Coveney: I thank the Deputy for raising this issue. Two reports are being launched today concerning children and families experiencing homelessness. The Oireachtas Joint Committee on Children and Youth Affairs is reporting on the impact of homelessness on children and the Oireachtas Joint Committee on Housing, Planning and Local Government report is on family and child homelessness. The Government...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (14 Nov 2019)

Brendan Howlin: I thank the Tánaiste the response. It is a prepared response for a question on the progress being made on housing. I welcome progress being made, but my question is child focused. It picks up on the analysis carried out by the two committees referred to by the Tánaiste. The housing committee has done very good work over the last few years on a number of proposals. However, I...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (14 Nov 2019)

Simon Coveney: There is already a child focus. When we were designing family hubs we did it with Barnardos and other child specialist NGOs and organisations. When I was Minister with responsibility for housing I worked with the Minister for Children and Youth Affairs, Deputy Zappone, to ensure that children's services and supports were part of the planning and investment, as well as with other Ministers...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (14 Nov 2019)

Brendan Howlin: Has the Tánaiste read the reports?

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (14 Nov 2019)

Simon Coveney: I have not. They were not published before Leaders' Questions started. I will read them, as I am very interested in this area. There will be statements in the House next week on child homelessness. If this legislation makes sense, the Government will support it and if it does not, we will give reasons why we cannot.

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (14 Nov 2019)

Brendan Howlin: It is 20 months.

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (14 Nov 2019)

Simon Coveney: This is about a number of things, not just passing legislation. If we pass legislation providing for rights, that does not solve the problem overnight. It is about an allocation of resources and ensuring that we can follow through on our commitments to children. Simply passing legislation and expecting that to solve the problem does not necessarily make sense on the ground for families,...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (14 Nov 2019)

Danny Healy-Rae: I wish to make the Tánaiste aware of the harm the Government and the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, Deputy Ross, supported by Fianna Fáil, Sinn Féin and many others in the Dáil, have done to the social fabric of rural Ireland and especially rural Kerry. He has closed down most of County Kerry and made smithereens of the social fabric people traditionally...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (14 Nov 2019)

Pearse Doherty: Earlier the HSE published its winter plan in an attempt to tackle overcrowding and deal with faster patient discharges. We are at the point where every day is winter in our hospitals because of overcrowding, patients on trolleys and undervalued staff trying their best on the front line. That is the state of the health service every day of the year. Patients face another difficult winter in...

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: I thank the Deputy. The time is up.

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (14 Nov 2019)

Pearse Doherty: In my constituency - I will finish on this - 4,500 patients so far this year have gone without a bed, despite the fact that ten beds in that hospital cannot be opened because of the recruitment.

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (14 Nov 2019)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: The time is up.

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (14 Nov 2019)

Pearse Doherty: When will the Government get to grips with the real issue here, make the proper investment, and lift the recruitment freeze that is crushing our hospitals and putting serious pressure on front-line staff and patients?
