Ceisteanna - Questions: Cabinet Committees (4 Oct 2022)

Ivana Bacik: I thank the Taoiseach for the report on the Cabinet committee on education. A number of relevant questions arise. First, when will we see a date for junior certificate results?

I would welcome a response on that...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Cabinet Committees (4 Oct 2022)

Richard Boyd Barrett: On behalf of people who are studying to be psychologists, I have raised with the Taoiseach on numerous occasions the fact that educational and counselling psychologists who were doing doctorates did not get funding for very expensive courses. In the budget, the Government extended the funding to counselling psychologists but not to educational psychologists, which is madness when one...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Cabinet Committees (4 Oct 2022)

Paul Murphy: Last year, a study published by Tuismitheoiri na Gaeltachta demonstrated that only 23% of parents in the Gaeltacht are raising their children through Irish. Thankfully, the use of Irish outside the Gaeltacht seems to be increasing, but there can be no real revival of the Irish language without its native speakers. A crucial part of that is the education system and treating Irish as a living...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Cabinet Committees (4 Oct 2022)

Pádraig O'Sullivan: I wish to raise with the Taoiseach the issue of the school completion programme. I know he is very familiar with it. While I welcome the announcements in budget 2023 last week, such as the €2.6 billion for special education the Taoiseach mentioned, the record number of special needs assistants, the provision for Irish Sign Language interpreters and, of course, the €13 million...

David Stanton: I am sure we have all been contacted by many small businesses that are under considerable pressure because of rising energy costs. Could the Taoiseach tell me when these businesses will get the very welcome support that was promised in the budget? If the businesses are still under pressure following that, will there be a further avenue of support? Is this being planned?

An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (4 Oct 2022)

Micheál Martin: The Minister for Finance is working out the details on how that scheme will be rolled out and administered. There could be further details in the Finance Bill also. The EU continually reviews its temporary crisis aid framework, which places restrictions on us regarding how we administer a business support scheme. In other words, we have to be close to the EU temporary crisis aid framework...

Gino Kenny: I want to raise an issue regarding the shortage of public health nurses in early childhood development. These are vital services for new mothers. Several parents have contacted me and other Deputies in Dublin Mid-West to inform us there are no public health nurses whatsoever. They have been told by the HSE that they will not have one for at least 18 months. This is completely...

He should feel free to send me some specifics on the matter. I will follow up of them.
