Michael McNamara: The Tánaiste has spoken about the problems with how this House does its business. He has also spoken about the benefits and frailties of Mercosur. I want to know how, when he is Taoiseach, the Tánaiste's Government will interact with this House. The current Taoiseach seems to have no problem with Mercosur being passed without a vote of this House or the people of Ireland....

Ceisteanna ar Pholasaí nó ar Reachtaíocht - Questions on Policy or Legislation (24 Nov 2022)

Leo Varadkar: That is very open-ended question. I will interact with the House in different ways depending on circumstances. When it comes to any international agreement that depends on the advice of the Attorney General.

Richard Bruton: The Government now has a legal obligation to cut peak-hour electricity demand by 5% over the winter and a voluntary obligation to cut both gas and electricity demand by 10%. What policy tools has it identified to deliver this? As well as protecting people from higher prices, it is very important that we help them to reduce their usage so we become more resilient. I suggest that the revenue...

Ceisteanna ar Pholasaí nó ar Reachtaíocht - Questions on Policy or Legislation (24 Nov 2022)

Leo Varadkar: The policy tools are differential pricing, which now exists, and also the Government ad information campaign encouraging people to reduce energy use and, where possible, to use energy at times when it is more efficient.

Brian Leddin: In advance of the changeover in a few weeks' time, I want to raise the issue of the lack of and deficit in health services and infrastructure in the mid-west region.

We have challenges at the moment but as we go forward to the end of the decade and into the next...

How much has been spent on cover-ups and non-disclosure agreements? There are 70 health professionals and doctors who have come to the Government but who have now been silenced. How many people are...
