Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Primary Medical Certificates (21 Oct 2021)

Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire: This matter has been raised a few times, although I am not sure if it was raised very recently in the Oireachtas.

Éamon Ó Cuív: In the Local Authority Times, a publication of the Institute of Public Administration, IPA, two researchers came to the following conclusion: Equalisation is a key element of a country‚Äôs inter-governmental fiscal arrangements where functions and funding are decentralised to subnational government. Although Ireland is a highly centralised country with limited responsibilities and...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Local Authorities (21 Oct 2021)

Malcolm Noonan: As has been set out in the circular from the Department, when additional information on the updated LPT is available the process will be re-examined.

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Local Authorities (21 Oct 2021)

Éamon Ó Cuív: If the Minister of State, Deputy Noonan, cannot answer, why is he here?

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Local Authorities (21 Oct 2021)

Malcolm Noonan: It is important that we consider those issues. We should be giving consideration to participatory budgeting where members of the public have a say in how their LPT revenue is spent. All those elements are critical in taking ownership of the revenue that is raised by local government and giving people a say in how it is spent in their own communities. My own local authority issues a...

Joan Collins: First, I welcome that the Minister of State, Deputy Madigan. At the beginning, I thought that the Minister of State, Deputy Noonan, was going to answer all the questions.

Joan Collins: That is why I welcome her being here. That is why I said it. I am not here to have a go at the Minister of State. I want to express the frustration of parents whose children are losing special education hours. One parent who contacted me said that her son lost two days of special education teaching this week. The loss of one-to-one teaching to help him with social skills and extra...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Special Educational Needs (21 Oct 2021)

Josepha Madigan: I thank the Deputy for raising the issue. I will always endeavour to respond Topical Issue matters that are relevant to me. This matter is partly the responsibility of the Minister for Education, Deputy Foley. The special education element comes under my remit. I recognise the challenge that schools are facing regarding the wider issue of substitution. I will come to the special education...
