Eoin Ó Broin: The Minister should do some homework.

Residential Tenancies and Valuation Bill 2020: Committee and Remaining Stages (30 Jul 2020)

Darragh O'Brien: That is not appropriate. If Deputy Ó Broin does not wish to hear the proper legal advice or a response to the amendments that have been tabled, that is fine. A tenant who wreaks havoc and engages in serious anti-social behaviour will not be protected under this legislation. It is as simple as that. Deputy Ó Broin can carry on in the disrespectful manner in which he has been...

Residential Tenancies and Valuation Bill 2020: Committee and Remaining Stages (30 Jul 2020)

Residential Tenancies and Valuation Bill 2020: Committee and Remaining Stages (30 Jul 2020)

Darragh O'Brien: I have listened to Tadhg an dá thaobh for most of the day, so let us just focus on what we need to do to bring in real protections for people.

It is not the case that...

Aodhán Ó Ríordáin: I will be as brief as possible in support of these amendments. The overarching thing we are trying to achieve was referenced by the previous speaker, with whom I agree. There can be a level of political game playing, either here or in Leinster House, as the Minister knows, in which the Opposition tries to depict the Government as uncaring, unfeeling and on the side of everything that is bad...

Residential Tenancies and Valuation Bill 2020: Committee and Remaining Stages (30 Jul 2020)

Darragh O'Brien: I thank the Members for their contributions and the amendments that have been put forward. I will deal individually with the items that have been raised. Perhaps I will deal with the section first and then try to respond to the queries. We have to look at the provisions that are in place now and the basis of those provisions, which is emergency legislation. What I and the Government will...

Eoin Ó Broin: That is absolutely not the case.

Residential Tenancies and Valuation Bill 2020: Committee and Remaining Stages (30 Jul 2020)

Darragh O'Brien: Let us be clear about it. If we are being adult and honest about it, that is what it is seeking in its amendment. The declaration does not mean that a tenant or relevant person engaging in anti-social behaviour will be allowed to wreak havoc until January 2021. I heard Deputy Ó Broin comment on this both publicly and privately. That person's tenancy can be terminated in accordance...
