Gnó na Dála - Business of Dáil (14 Jul 2022)

Gnó na Dála - Business of Dáil (14 Jul 2022)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: Before moving on to Questions on Policy or Legislation, and given that we are heading into the recess, I avail of this opportunity to thank the Tánaiste, the Taoiseach and Members of the Government for their co-operation throughout the term. I thank all the party leaders and group leaders for the co-operation we have received from them. You have been very good. Those of us charged...

Ceisteanna ar Pholasaí nó ar Reachtaíocht - Questions on Policy or Legislation (14 Jul 2022)

Pearse Doherty: Go raibh maith agat, a Cheann Comhairle, or I should call you "a mháistir"? I wish to associate myself with his comments. On behalf of Sinn Féin, I wish to commend all of the staff in Leinster House, including the caterers, the ushers and the cleaners, who have guided us during us this term. Hopefully, we will all be back here in good health, safe and sound, for the next session...

Ceisteanna ar Pholasaí nó ar Reachtaíocht - Questions on Policy or Legislation (14 Jul 2022)

Leo Varadkar: At the outset, I want to be associated with and thank the Ceann Comhairle for his words and his good advice. We are all heading off on what is a nine-week recess. It is true of all of us that we will still be working in our Departments, Cabinet will still be meeting and constituency offices will still be open. Most Members of the House will take two or three weeks' annual leave and will...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (14 Jul 2022)

Leo Varadkar: I thank the Deputy for raising this important issue. As the Deputy knows, Hungary is holding up the European ratification of the international agreement on tax at the moment. Their decision to do so has consequences. The United States, for example, has indicated that it will suspend its double taxation agreement with Hungary. One can imagine that if we were to adopt the same approach and...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (14 Jul 2022)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: I thank the Tánaiste.

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (14 Jul 2022)

Leo Varadkar: -----to fund the future costs of pensions.

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (14 Jul 2022)

Michael Lowry: I thank the Tánaiste for clarifying that and for making it clear that the Government will not be reviewing the position. In that context, we have look to the future. I note that the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment and the Department of Finance called for submissions in regard to enterprise policy. The Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment gave less than one...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (14 Jul 2022)

Leo Varadkar: I have to ask the Minister for Finance, Deputy Donohoe, to come back to the Deputy later in relation to the finance side. In terms of my own Department’s consultation on the new enterprise White Paper, the deadline is 5 p.m. on Friday, 29 July. The consultation documents ask that submissions be no longer than 1,500 words, but they do not have to be so if somebody wants to make a...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (14 Jul 2022)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: I call Deputy Harkin on behalf of the Independent Group.

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (14 Jul 2022)

Marian Harkin: We are all aware that the wholesale price of gas has rocketed. It was 4.5% this week. With the fear that Russia will not reopen the Nord Stream pipeline, we know that the price is only going to go one way. Given that approximately 50% of our electricity is generated from gas-fired power stations, that means that for everybody the price of electricity is escalating. The issue of the impact...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (14 Jul 2022)

Leo Varadkar: I want to say at the outset that I, as Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment, and the Government understand that businesses have endured some really difficult years with Brexit, the restrictions related to the pandemic and now, of course, inflation particularly when it comes to energy costs. I think it is fair to say that this Government has not been found wanting when it has come to...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (14 Jul 2022)

Leo Varadkar: That is a false narrative. It is also a populist narrative. I spend as much time outside this House as the Deputy does, as do my colleagues on these benches. I spend as much time talking to my constituents - working people, middle-income people, business people and people from all backgrounds - as the Deputy does. I do not know what the Deputy will be doing through July or August, by the...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (14 Jul 2022)

Ivana Bacik: In this unprecedented cost-of-living crisis, we all know there are certain individuals and families who are living in particular fear - fear about safety in their homes and fear about the cost of remedying defects in the construction of their homes. Last month, for example, I heard from a mother who informed me that the possibility of her daughter progressing to third level education had...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (14 Jul 2022)

Leo Varadkar: I thank the Deputy for raising this important issue. It is one I am very familiar with in my constituency as well, where a large number of apartments have apartment defects. People have been sent bills, sometimes for €10,000 and sometimes for as much as €60,000 per apartment, to carry out necessary repairs. The inevitable happens. Some people can afford to pay, some cannot...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (14 Jul 2022)

Ivana Bacik: I thank the Tánaiste for that positive response and his acknowledgement that the Government will have to provide a response for those who, through no fault of their own, are living in this twofold fear in these apartments, the fear of debt and the fear about fire safety, in particular. Following the horrific Grenfell fire in London, that is uppermost in all our minds. The scale of...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (14 Jul 2022)

Leo Varadkar: I have not seen the report yet so I am not sure what measures, actions or remedies are being suggested. I do not want to comment in detail until I have. However, I understand the point the Deputy is making with regard to some degree of retrospection. I mentioned some of the blocks I am familiar with in my constituency where people have paid or are paying the levy and others have not paid...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (14 Jul 2022)

Michael Lowry: I wish to raise the concern about contingency planning in the event of decreasing levels of foreign direct investment in Ireland as a result of the implementation of the global and European minimum corporation tax rate. Ireland has used our corporation tax rate as a very effective economic development tool, which has successfully resulted in a flood of multinational investment into the...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Cost of Living Issues (14 Jul 2022)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: The time has elapsed now for Question Time, so the question will be answered in written form. Our thanks to all the Deputies and to the Ministers for their assistance with Question Time.
