Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Early Childhood Care and Education (14 Oct 2021)

Anne Rabbitte: I thank the Deputy for raising the matter and compliment him on the videos he has produced in the past number of weeks. They are simple and snappy. I also thank him for his comments on the Minister, Deputy O'Gorman, and his Department and the work he has put in for the past number of months to support all our parties that have made this happen. There has been a step change in the past...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Early Childhood Care and Education (14 Oct 2021)

Richard Bruton: I thank the Minister of State and am encouraged to hear about all that work. One thing I did not hear mentioned, and this should be the starting point, is the need to start with the well-being of children. We need to embed in any such agency what the well-being of children is and how it will be measured and monitored in order that all this activity generates an outcome, especially for...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Irish Sign Language (14 Oct 2021)

Anne Rabbitte: I thank the Deputy for raising this question this evening and welcome the opportunity to address the House on the issue. Irish Sign Language is a matter of significant importance to me. I will put on the record that I met with families and with ISL interpreters. I have engaged with users of ISL and know how important it is to them that they can use ISL when accessing key services. There...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Irish Sign Language (14 Oct 2021)

John Lahart: The Deputy has two minutes for his response. He might try to stay on time.

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Irish Sign Language (14 Oct 2021)

Pádraig O'Sullivan: I thank the Acting Chairman. I will always concede time to the Minister of State, if she wants it. I appreciate her frank response. To follow up on how she finished in terms of the delay of Departments in coming back to the Minister of State, it is quite apparent from the report I cited earlier that a number of Departments are not compliant with the Act, which was established in 2017. It...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Irish Sign Language (14 Oct 2021)

Anne Rabbitte: Yet again, I thank the Deputy for raising this issue. Anybody who is listing to the debate this evening might not realise the relevance of the Irish Sign Language Act that was signed into law 2017 and the commencement order that we brought forward in December 2020. It was not just one Department, however. It was a whole-of-government approach across all Departments and all public...

Financial Resolutions 2021 - Financial Resolution No. 2: General (Resumed) (14 Oct 2021)

Paul McAuliffe: I always make the mistake of responding to the debate instead of just reading what I have prepared. Yet I find myself compelled to respond to the debate again.

Financial Resolutions 2021 - Financial Resolution No. 2: General (Resumed) (14 Oct 2021)

Denise Mitchell: Do not do it.

Financial Resolutions 2021 - Financial Resolution No. 2: General (Resumed) (14 Oct 2021)

Paul McAuliffe: On one side of the House we have the Opposition talking about the problem of inflation and spending more in order to tackle the it. Does the Opposition not realise that one of the principal causes of inflation is injecting more money into the economy? The more the Government injects more money into the economy, the more inflation increases. It is about striking a balance between Government...

Financial Resolutions 2021 - Financial Resolution No. 2: General (Resumed) (14 Oct 2021)

Martin Browne: That was a nice political broadcast for the Fianna Fáil Party

Irish Sign Language

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Irish Sign Language (14 Oct 2021)

Pádraig O'Sullivan: I am glad the Minister of State is here to take this matter because I know she understands it. She and I have met a number of groups to discuss it over the last few weeks. I would like to speak to her this evening about the Irish Sign Language Act and seek an update regarding its implementation and oversight in her Department. This Act places a statutory duty on all public bodies to...

Financial Resolutions 2021 - Financial Resolution No. 2: General (Resumed) (14 Oct 2021)

Martin Browne: I do not know if we are living in the same country at all. I have listened to the passionate plea of Deputy Durkan. He is rolled out at the end of debates all of the time. Fair play to him, he is a likeable rogue. Fine Gael puts him out there to defend the Government at the very end but to borrow his boxing analogy about those outside the ring, perhaps it is time for this Government to...

Financial Resolutions 2021 - Financial Resolution No. 2: General (Resumed) (14 Oct 2021)

John Lahart: As a notice for those Deputies contributing to the Topical Issue Debate, which is scheduled for 6 p.m, we are going to finish these statements considerably earlier than that. To advise the Deputies who are on standby for that debate, I estimate we will finish the statements within 40 minutes at the latest.

Financial Resolutions 2021 - Financial Resolution No. 2: General (Resumed) (14 Oct 2021)

Réada Cronin: The Minister of State, Deputy Thomas Byrne, was wondering would Sinn Féin give an honest appraisal of the budget. I am certainly willing to do that. This budget, like somebody who has been in a job too long, has managed to look very busy while not getting very much done at all. Post budget, millions are still waking up to crippling rents, which are the highest in the EU. The cost of...

Financial Resolutions 2021 - Financial Resolution No. 2: General (Resumed) (14 Oct 2021)

John Lahart: We have no Solidarity-People Before Profit speakers so I call Deputy Durkan.

Financial Resolutions 2021 - Financial Resolution No. 2: General (Resumed) (14 Oct 2021)

Bernard Durkan: I am delighted to have an opportunity to speak on this budget. I have spoken on a number of budgets over the years and have seen speeches from the Government and from the Opposition. There is a certain similarity. Mr. Denis Reid, a former employee of the Houses of the Oireachtas, used to advise as to what the various spokespersons would say and predict it in advance. Normally, from the...

Financial Resolutions 2021 - Financial Resolution No. 2: General (Resumed) (14 Oct 2021)

Denise Mitchell: Budgets have always been about priorities and choices. This budget is no different. Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil made their choices. It is clear they do not favour working people or families who are overwhelmed by the cost of living crisis. This is the sixth budget under Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil, another in a long line of budgets that have not delivered for ordinary people....
