Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Small and Medium Enterprises (14 Jul 2020)

Jackie Cahill: The urban-rural divide in the sector is quite significant. Rural-based SMEs, although likely to employ fewer numbers than SMEs in urban areas, are nevertheless significant employers. We need to look to the future when considering the issues they face. Access to broadband, transport infrastructure, education facilities and further tax-based incentives will be essential in ensuring the...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Small and Medium Enterprises (14 Jul 2020)

Leo Varadkar: As I said, the July stimulus will be a package of scale. I expect it to include actions we can implement within weeks or months, not actions that cannot be done until next year or the year after, and to amount to several billions of euro in funding. It is important to say, however, that we are not going to fire all our bullets next week. We will do more in October as part of the budget and...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Brexit Preparations (14 Jul 2020)

Bernard Durkan: 25. To ask the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation his plans to obviate the negative impact of Brexit on the economy here; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [15689/20]

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Brexit Preparations (14 Jul 2020)

Bernard Durkan: This question seeks to ascertain the extent to which the Government continues to examine the potential impact of Brexit as the year draws to a close.

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Brexit Preparations (14 Jul 2020)

Leo Varadkar: I thank the Deputy for his question and for his ongoing interest in Brexit and how it will impact on this State. Whatever shape it finally takes, Brexit will have a significant impact on the economy. It will fundamentally change the trading environment for businesses currently trading with the UK. In 2018, my Department published a report, entitled Strategic Implications for Ireland...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Covid-19 Pandemic Supports (14 Jul 2020)

John Lahart: I welcome the last two sentences from the Tánaiste. I am speaking as a former Dublin spokesperson on the other side of the House. We have all championed the notion of remote working but it is having consequences. It has consequences for the city in terms of hospitality. Walking around the city, one sees a lot of offices are not occupied and that has an impact on hospitality, whether...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Covid-19 Pandemic Supports (14 Jul 2020)

Leo Varadkar: The truth is that not every business was viable before the pandemic. There were those who hoped they would become viable as the economy continued to grow. That has not happened. We had a pandemic instead and now the economy has shrunk so, for some businesses that hoped to become viable, that hope is now lost. We will see businesses close in all sectors, unfortunately. That is just the...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Covid-19 Pandemic Supports (14 Jul 2020)

John Lahart: On the Tánaiste's comment on trading through Christmas and until the next tourist season, in what way does he anticipate the environment will be different next spring in terms of the pandemic that will allow businesses that cannot function and trade now, to function and trade then? What is the Tánaiste's response to the recent comments by Irish Small and Medium Employers, ISME,...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Covid-19 Pandemic Supports (14 Jul 2020)

Leo Varadkar: I met representatives of ISME last week. We are paying attention to what other countries do and every country's package is different. We compare favourably when it comes to the pandemic unemployment payment. Not many countries are providing €350 per week to workers. That is triple what it is in Northern Ireland or Britain. We compare quite well when it comes to the wage subsidy...

Employment Rights

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Employment Rights (14 Jul 2020)

Bríd Smith: 22. To ask the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation if he will meet with representatives of construction, contract cleaning and security workers to discuss the way in which to safeguard pay rates in these and other sectors in view of recent court rulings that could dramatically affect workers; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [15812/20]

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Employment Rights (14 Jul 2020)

Bríd Smith: The paths in the House are well trodden by the captains of industry and sometimes by trade unions and their representatives. My question to the Tánaiste is a bit like the question he was asked earlier about meeting the Debenhams workers. Maybe he could clarify it but I believe he responded positively to that. In the light of the recent High Court judgment which sent shockwaves through...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Employment Rights (14 Jul 2020)

Damien English: I thank Deputy Bríd Smith for raising this issue. She has raised it in the House previously and she will understand we are appealing this decision, as confirmed by the Tánaiste last Thursday. I reiterate the Tánaiste's message at that time and again today to all workers and employers affected by this decision in regard to sectoral employment orders, that until the appeal...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Employment Rights (14 Jul 2020)

Bríd Smith: I welcome that the Minister of State said he will meet their representatives in the coming weeks. I hugely welcome the announcement that the Government will appeal the High Court decision and I particularly enjoyed the Tánaiste’s video that he put out on Twitter last night with Countess Markievicz clearly having his back. I doubt he will take her advice and leave his jewels in...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Employment Rights (14 Jul 2020)

Leo Varadkar: I do not have jewels or a revolver. I am a simple man.

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Employment Rights (14 Jul 2020)

Bríd Smith: -----he might follow her inspiration and show us that he has the backs of the workers involved. The reason I am putting the question in this manner is that I think there is more to protecting and advocating workers’ right than just what goes on in the courts. There is also the ability of workers to defend themselves. There is plan A, where one defends the rights in the courts and...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Employment Rights (14 Jul 2020)

Damien English: It is fair to say that we, as Ministers, have over the past nine years committed to proving our worth when it comes to industrial relations. The Industrial Relations Act 2015 was quite a large Act. Previously, we had 15 or 16 years of discussion and legal cases. We tried to bring certainty to this and we acted on that with that legislation. We have built on that since and we have shown...
