Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Data Centres (17 Jun 2021)

James Lawless: My question relates to a commitment in the recently published national resilience and recovery plan to provide a Government data centre. Will the Minister elaborate on plans for that? Is it to be a physical data centre, a system to provide a single view of the citizen or both? What exactly is it to consist of and how exactly will it work?

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Data Centres (17 Jun 2021)

Michael McGrath: I propose to take Questions Nos. 105 and 112 together. I thank Deputies Lawless and Mairéad Farrell for their questions. It is proposed to develop a new Government data centre. This will be a purpose-built facility on State land and will be operated and managed by the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine on behalf of the State. The new Government data centre will be...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Data Centres (17 Jun 2021)

James Lawless: I thank the Minister. His response was very interesting. I am delighted to hear the centre is to be located in Backweston in my constituency of Kildare North. I am aware of the forensic science laboratory and other State facilities already located there. This will complement the facilities at that location. I know that centre is operating well and it is good to see it growing with this...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Data Centres (17 Jun 2021)

Mairead Farrell: There is much merit in creating a shared Government data services centre. I have been looking at the area of public procurement and data collection, analysis and review in this area needs to be improved. A shared data centre could help to improve the interoperability of public administrative databases and could help cut down on data entry and the collection of duplicate data. As part of...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Data Centres (17 Jun 2021)

Michael McGrath: I thank the Deputies very much. By way of further background, this facility is initially designed to accommodate 600 racks. The project is initially intended to replace four of the State's most essential data centres, which are operated by the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine, the Revenue Commissioners, the Department of Social Protection and An Garda Síochána, with...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Data Centres (17 Jun 2021)

James Lawless: I thank the Minister for responding to my comments. I am familiar with the campus at Backweston and have followed its development. Indeed, I was there for the launch of Forensic Science Ireland and the turning of the sod a couple of years ago. It is great site and it is well located. There is a valuable skill set and talent pool in north Kildare. I thank the Minister for the continued...

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Construction Industry (17 Jun 2021)

Mairead Farrell: We are in a situation at the moment where demand consistently outstrips supply. This puts upward pressure on house prices and rent. The Minister mentioned in the past number of questions high expenditure in terms of capital. We need to look at the reality on the ground as well. People cannot afford housing or rents. Again today the Central Bank has said that house prices will rise...

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Construction Industry (17 Jun 2021)

Michael McGrath: Certainly, we need to increase housing supply not only from the State but from the private sector. As the Deputy is aware, a range of domestic bodies and commentators have pointed to the need for output of somewhere between 30,000 and 35,000 units per annum. Pre-covid, the figure had increased to a little over 20,000. We are still a long way short of where we need to be. The State will...

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Construction Industry (17 Jun 2021)

Mairead Farrell: I hope the Government will start to play its part in the delivery of housing, especially affordable housing that people can actually live in. The reality is that we have seen for a long number of years with previous Governments and this Government a failure to do that. That is why we are in the situation we are in. We are where we are because of political decisions. It is simply not good...

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Construction Industry (17 Jun 2021)

Michael McGrath: The Deputy raised the question of affordability in the area of housing. The Government is now putting in place an affordable housing scheme. Until now, such a scheme did not exist. Through the co-operation of the House, hopefully, we are enacting legislation that will provide an affordable housing scheme in this country that will be of benefit to thousands of individuals and couples who...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Earcaíocht san Earnáil Phoiblí (17 Jun 2021)

Éamon Ó Cuív: 104. To ask the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform an bhfuil sé i gceist aige dlús a chur le hearcú tuilleadh státseirbhíseach chuig an státseirbhís, a bhfuil cumas acu oibriú tríd an dá theanga oifigiúil, á chur forálacha an Bhille leasaithe Teangacha Oifigiúla atá faoi bhráid an Oireachtais faoi...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Earcaíocht san Earnáil Phoiblí (17 Jun 2021)

Éamon Ó Cuív: Mar is eol don Aire Stáit, tá Bille ag dul trí na Dála i láthair na huaire agus beidh, faoin mBille sin, dualgas ar an tseirbhís phoiblí 20% a earcú a mbeidh Gaeilge agus, glacaimid leis, Béarla acu. Faoi láthair, tá painéal ann agus is beag duine atá tógtha ón bpainél do dhaoine, ní hamháin a bhfuil...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Earcaíocht san Earnáil Phoiblí (17 Jun 2021)

Ossian Smyth: Is é an tSeirbhís um Cheapacháin Phoiblí, PAS, an t-earcaitheoir neamhspleách i gcomhair cheapacháin na státseirbhíse. Tá an earcaíocht ar fad faoi stiúir an éilimh agus téann PAS i gceann comórtas thar ceann na státseirbhíse chun painéil a chur ar bun ónar féidir tarraingt de réir mar a...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Earcaíocht san Earnáil Phoiblí (17 Jun 2021)

Éamon Ó Cuív: Cé mhéad duine ar roghnaíodh iad don phainéal Gaeilge, mar a thugann an tAire Stáit air, agus cé mhéad duine atá fostaithe cheana féin ón bpainéal sin? Cén fáth nár fostaíodh tuilleadh? An nglacfadh an tAire Stáit leis go bhfuil sé cineál seafóideach painéal Gaeilge amháin a bheith ann...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Earcaíocht san Earnáil Phoiblí (17 Jun 2021)

Ossian Smyth: Tá an-deacracht againn. Tá an-deacracht ag an Státseirbhís daoine dátheangacha a earcú. Mar shampla, bhí comórtas ann do dhaoine a raibh Béarla acu gur spéis leo a bheith ina n-oifigigh chléireachais agus sainchomórtas eile do dhaoine dátheangacha a raibh líofacht acu sa Ghaeilge. Bhí 60 uair níos mó...
