Regulation of Providers of Building Works Bill 2022: Second Stage (20 Jan 2022)

Pádraig Mac Lochlainn: We have been in the House on many occasions over the years dealing with legislation that would regulate the building and construction industry. Again and again it failed because of the closeness of whoever was in government at the time to the building industry. Again and again the building industry had influence over legislation. Where did it take us? It took us to the disaster of pyrite...

Regulation of Providers of Building Works Bill 2022: Second Stage (20 Jan 2022)

Cian O'Callaghan: While I agree with the sentiment of Deputy Lahart on this having to be the final say, it is critical that it is not the final say because the legislation does not go far enough on building control. The other legislation the Minister has committed to for an independent building regulator authority is crucial. The Bill on its own, which is very flawed and I will table amendments to improve...

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: Our next contributor is Deputy Lahart.

Regulation of Providers of Building Works Bill 2022: Second Stage (20 Jan 2022)

John Lahart: The Ceann Comhairle took me by surprise. I wish him and the Minister of State a happy new year. I warmly welcome this Bill. I will go through bits of it at random, if I may. Words and phrases such as "mica", "pyrite", "water ingress", "water egress" and "fire defects" have become too much part of the lexicon of the experience of people who have bought their homes in the last two decades....

Regulation of Providers of Building Works Bill 2022: Second Stage (20 Jan 2022)

Gerald Nash: Sometimes you do not know when you take off where you will land. That is the case, I think, with most Members of this House, and that is meant with all due respect. Deputy Gould is absolutely right about the preventative maintenance budgets of our local authorities. If we do not address that issue, we store up more trouble, ensuring that maintenance, building control and so on become bigger...

Regulation of Providers of Building Works Bill 2022: Second Stage (20 Jan 2022)

Thomas Gould: Like my party colleague, I cautiously welcome this Bill. It is about time we started regulating the construction industry properly but there is still a great deal of work to be done to make the Bill fit for purpose so that it delivers what we all want to see delivered. In my city of Cork, we have a housing development on Kilmore Road in Knocknaheeny where construction stopped in early...

Regulation of Providers of Building Works Bill 2022: Second Stage (20 Jan 2022)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: I call Deputy Ó Broin, who is sharing time with Deputy Gould.

Regulation of Providers of Building Works Bill 2022: Second Stage (20 Jan 2022)

Eoin Ó Broin: I thank the Minister for his opening remarks. As the Minister said, defects and shoddy building work continues to impact tens of thousands of private homeowners and social and private rental tenants across the State. Today's news about the additional cost to taxpayers arising from building practices in our public schools once again confirms not only the legacy of light-touch building...

Regulation of Providers of Building Works Bill 2022: Second Stage (20 Jan 2022)

Darragh O'Brien: I move: "That the Bill be now read a Second Time." I am pleased to have this opportunity to present the Regulation of Providers of Building Works Bill 2022 to the House. Many examples of building failure as a result of non-compliance with building regulations have come to light in recent years and more may continue to emerge in the coming months and years. The Government's plan for...

Birth Information and Tracing Bill 2022: Second Stage (Resumed) (20 Jan 2022)

Roderic O'Gorman: I want to thank everybody for their detailed contributions over the past two days and consideration of the Bill since it was published. I want to thank the Acting Chair and Deputy Costello, in particular, as members of the joint committee, for speaking about a number of recommendations we implemented in moving from the original draft of the Bill last May to the Bill published two weeks ago....

Birth Information and Tracing Bill 2022: Second Stage (Resumed) (20 Jan 2022)

Marian Harkin: How often, in recent times, have we heard the phrase "Do not let the perfect become the enemy of the good"? In many ways, I believe that this applies to the legislation we are discussing today. Much of what is in this legislation is good, and in that context I commend the Minister on bringing forward the legislation. I listened carefully to the Minister's contribution yesterday. One of...
