Ceisteanna - Questions: Taoiseach's Meetings and Engagements (4 Oct 2022)

Micheál Martin: I dealt with Deputy Ó Murchú's question on the shared dialogue issues. I am not discussing domestic economic policies other than to say, obviously, in terms of us being so close to the British market, it has a great deal of significance for companies in Ireland. Deputy Bacik raised the protocol. I have dealt with that in respect of the broader question of a negotiated...

Housing for All Update: Statements (4 Oct 2022)

Housing for All Update: Statements (4 Oct 2022)

Darragh O'Brien: I wish to share time with Deputy Christopher O'Sullivan. Nothing is more important to this country than tackling the housing crisis head-on. As I have said on a number of occasions, following a decade of undersupply rents are still too high, homebuilding is still too low and too many people cannot afford to buy their own home. Too many parents and grandparents are worried about where...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Taoiseach's Meetings and Engagements (4 Oct 2022)

Paul Murphy: Liz Truss has been forced to perform a humiliating U-turn concerning her plans to reduce the top rate of income tax from 45% to 40% for those earning more than £150,000. The move was widely condemned as a tax cut for the wealthiest. It was met by mass protests right across Britain from the Enough is Enough cost-of-living coalition. The top rate of income tax in this country, however,...

Micheál Martin: But they are not.

Ceisteanna - Questions: Taoiseach's Meetings and Engagements (4 Oct 2022)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: In Britain now, we are seeing where Tory politics meet the outworkings of Brexit. I have no doubt that the Taoiseach brought up the worries that would emanate from a British economy in freefall. I welcome that there has been changed language from certain sections of the British Government in respect of possibly doing a deal with the EU. It is absolutely necessary regarding the Irish...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Taoiseach's Meetings and Engagements (4 Oct 2022)

Ivana Bacik: The Taoiseach said he welcomed the change in tone from the British Government. Others have pointed out the apology from the minister of state for Northern Ireland, Steve Baker, as well as the U-turn on tax by the new British Prime Minister and her Chancellor. Therefore, is the Taoiseach optimistic about a potential U-turn by the Tory Government on its Northern Ireland Protocol Bill, given...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Taoiseach's Meetings and Engagements (4 Oct 2022)

Mary Lou McDonald: Whatever about a change in tone from the British Administration, which of course is welcome after six years of Brexit uncertainty and two years of threats to break international law, what intervention will the Government undertake in respect of the protocol legislation? It was championed in the first instance by Liz Truss and I understand it is to go to a second reading in the House of Lords...

Catherine Connolly: I call Deputy Boyd Barrett, who wants to come in briefly.

Ceisteanna - Questions: Taoiseach's Meetings and Engagements (4 Oct 2022)

Richard Boyd Barrett: Liz Truss and the Tory right have faced a humiliating defeat over their attempts to cut taxes on the rich to the levels that we have in this country, as Deputy Paul Murphy pointed out. In better news, though, in another part of the United Kingdom, the Scottish Parliament has introduced a rent freeze and an eviction ban in response to the cost-of-living crisis. The Tories in Scotland are...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Taoiseach's Meetings and Engagements (4 Oct 2022)

Micheál Martin: Deputy Griffin raised the issue of the protocol. To answer in general all the Deputies who have raised issues in this regard, following my meetings with the British Prime Minister, and her meetings with the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, there is a preference on all sides for a negotiated settlement. If negotiations commence, let us give them space. I do not...
