Horse and Greyhound Racing Fund Regulations 2022: Motion (30 Nov 2022)

Charlie McConalogue: On the 80:20 funding split, it is fair to have different views on it. Last year Deputies called for a review of the 80:20. The Deputies are Members of the Parliament and Members of the Legislature. They can make law and propose law, but they have not come forward with any proposal to change the 80:20.

Horse and Greyhound Racing Fund Regulations 2022: Motion (30 Nov 2022)

Matt Carthy: What is the Minister's rationale?

Horse and Greyhound Racing Fund Regulations 2022: Motion (30 Nov 2022)

Charlie McConalogue: Deputy Carthy can bring forward a Bill. He has done nothing since last year and he will do nothing again.

Horse and Greyhound Racing Fund Regulations 2022: Motion (30 Nov 2022)

Matt Carthy: The Minister is writing blank cheques.

Horse and Greyhound Racing Fund Regulations 2022: Motion (30 Nov 2022)

Charlie McConalogue: Once this is dealt with this year, there will not be a word out of him.

Horse and Greyhound Racing Fund Regulations 2022: Motion (30 Nov 2022)

Matt Carthy: That is not true. That is disingenuous. The Minister is misleading the House. I deal with this at the Committee of Public Accounts and at the Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine on an ongoing basis. The Minister knows this. The Minister has spent his entire speech talking about Sinn Féin.

Horse and Greyhound Racing Fund Regulations 2022: Motion (30 Nov 2022)

Charlie McConalogue: It is open to the Deputy to bring forward legislation and propose that. On the Horse and Greyhound Racing Fund, that has increased by about 3% this year. Most of the other State agencies have been increased by about 3% also, so it is not different really from the approach taken by most State agencies.

Horse and Greyhound Racing Fund Regulations 2022: Motion (30 Nov 2022)

Matt Carthy: So, it is not based on a business case. It is pro rata-----

Horse and Greyhound Racing Fund Regulations 2022: Motion (30 Nov 2022)

Charlie McConalogue: Both have been increased by about 3%.

Horse and Greyhound Racing Fund Regulations 2022: Motion (30 Nov 2022)

Matt Carthy: I thought it was to be based on a business case.

Horse and Greyhound Racing Fund Regulations 2022: Motion (30 Nov 2022)

Charlie McConalogue: As I said to the committee, that level of certainty in relation to recurrent funding is important. There are then strategic plans and assessments by Horse Racing Ireland and Rásaíocht Con Éireann each year on how that funding is spent, along with key stakeholders representing both of the boards. On Deputy Kelly's contribution, the Deputy has been a consistent supporter of...

Horse and Greyhound Racing Fund Regulations 2022: Motion (30 Nov 2022)

Matt Carthy: I have an amendment.

Horse and Greyhound Racing Fund Regulations 2022: Motion (30 Nov 2022)

Charlie McConalogue: The Deputy has an amendment today in relation to a review and then the Deputy will vote against the funding, despite expressing support for the sector. It is simply a ruse to try to cover the Deputy's embarrassment that he does not have a position and while he is out speaking to the Dáil-----

Horse and Greyhound Racing Fund Regulations 2022: Motion (30 Nov 2022)

Matt Carthy: The Minister spent his entire speech talking about the Opposition without actually referring to the amendment that the Opposition has tabled.

Horse and Greyhound Racing Fund Regulations 2022: Motion (30 Nov 2022)

Charlie McConalogue: While Deputy Carthy is speaking about how he supports the sector, meanwhile Senator Boylan will be firing off emails to all the NGOs that are in contact with her to say how she is against it and is opposing it. God help Sinn Féin in relation to this if it ever gets into Government.

Horse and Greyhound Racing Fund Regulations 2022: Motion (30 Nov 2022)

Matt Carthy: The Minister is in government with the Green Party-----

Horse and Greyhound Racing Fund Regulations 2022: Motion (30 Nov 2022)

Charlie McConalogue: I recognise the points made by Deputy Kelly and I recognise the view and perspective of the Social Democrats. On the point made by Deputy Paul Murphy about the funding for the sector, of course he ignores the jobs that are dependent on it. On the sports funding, we invested €150 million in sports clubs across the country this year, which is very important and shows the Government...

Horse and Greyhound Racing Fund Regulations 2022: Motion (30 Nov 2022)

Seán Sherlock: May I be permitted to make a very short point of order?

Horse and Greyhound Racing Fund Regulations 2022: Motion (30 Nov 2022)

Catherine Connolly: No. The debate has concluded.

Horse and Greyhound Racing Fund Regulations 2022: Motion (30 Nov 2022)

Seán Sherlock: It is on the 80:20 funding-----
