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

Micheál Martin: I propose to take Questions Nos. 15 to 27, inclusive, together. First, as Taoiseach I want to put on record my sincere condolences on behalf of the Government of Ireland to the British people on the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth Il. I have met Prime Minister Liz Truss MP on two occasions since her appointment on 6 September. We also spoke by phone. I had a good call with the...

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

Brendan Griffin: I thank the Taoiseach for his response. I echo his words on the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth and I express my condolences to the citizens of the UK and to all those around the world who mourn her. The four weeks since the appointment of the new Prime Minister have been eventful, to say the least. It would make an episode of "House of Cards" look dull. It makes me grateful for...

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

Bernard Durkan: I thank the Taoiseach for his reply. To what extent, if any, has he sought to advance the cause of debate on the Northern Ireland protocol? Has he seen any evidence of progress in that regard in the relations between Dublin and London? Did he have an opportunity to advance the shared island initiative, which he is committed to, and what was the response like?

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

Neale Richmond: I am grateful, as ever, for the Taoiseach's fulsome response. I am also grateful for, and strongly welcome, the surprising comments from the minister of state at the Northern Ireland Office, Mr. Steve Baker, at the weekend. They were long overdue, but welcome, and they form a basis for an opportunity to seal an agreed solution to the implementation of the Northern Ireland protocol while...

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

Brendan Smith: I welcome the Taoiseach's statement that he hopes there can be a satisfactory outcome, without much delay, to the negotiations on the protocol and the issues arising from Brexit. A number of us who are members of the British-Irish Parliamentary Assembly had a useful engagement with a UK minister, Mr. Conor Burns, during August. He was in Dublin and met various groups, including...

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

Seán Haughey: The Taoiseach stated previously that the appointment of a new British Prime Minister was a chance to reset the relationship between Dublin and London. As we know, the British Government has an important role to play regarding negotiations between the UK and the EU on the Northern Ireland protocol and the re-establishment of the Northern Ireland institutions. Positive signs are coming from...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Cabinet Committees (4 Oct 2022)

Rose Conway-Walsh: It is truly shocking that the Government and the EU have been so slow to address the broken electricity pricing system. Last Friday, the EU Governments finally agreed to act. Sadly, “as little as possible and as late as possible” seems to be the policy there, with a token windfall tax that lets oil and gas companies keep the vast majority of profits. How will that even work...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Cabinet Committees (4 Oct 2022)

Ivana Bacik: We know the greatest risk to jobs and economic recovery this winter is the ever-growing cost of energy and the energy security crisis, yet the Government has not countenanced any kind of cap on energy prices despite most other EU countries pursuing some version of a cap. We saw a report on Euractiv at the weekend. I see the Taoiseach is shaking his head so he might clarify this. It appears...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Cabinet Committees (4 Oct 2022)

Pádraig O'Sullivan: A tax warehousing arrangement allowed a business to park unpaid VAT and PAYE tax debts that arose from the Covid-19 crisis for a period of 12 months after businesses resumed trading, and there was subsequently a further extension. Support for businesses during Covid was appreciated by all, particularly employment supports, rate cuts and the opportunity to warehouse tax. Will similar...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Cabinet Committees (4 Oct 2022)

Cathal Crowe: We are very excited in County Clare to see enabling works under way to develop a 1,400 MW €15 million offshore wind farm off the coast of Moneypoint, the Green Atlantic wind farm. Just like Aberdeen in the 1980s, when it became Europe's petroleum capital, we can exploit economic opportunities in the west of Ireland. Will the Government support research and development, higher...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Cabinet Committees (4 Oct 2022)

Mick Barry: Economic recovery, but for who? Tens of thousands of pay-as-you-go gas and electricity customers are yet to be convinced that the Government has a plan to protect them from disconnection this winter. Meanwhile, PrepayPower made profits of €14.2 million in 2020, up 27% from the previous year. It is majority-owned by Ulric Kenny, who increased his wealth by €30 million in 2020....

Ceisteanna - Questions: Cabinet Committees (4 Oct 2022)

Paul Murphy: Last week, in the Minister, Deputy Donohoe’s budget speech, he said we would have an inflation rate of 8.5% this year and 7% next year, and he announced a series of increases in various payments, all inadequate and the vast majority below the rate of inflation. One group of people got absolutely no increase at all for the 13th year in a row, and that is foster carers. These are...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Cabinet Committees (4 Oct 2022)

Micheál Martin: Deputy McDonald raised the issue of Wind Energy Ireland. There is no question but that the next ten years will be an exciting ten years in respect of offshore wind development, and it is very important that we do that in a managed and controlled way. The Minister has already issued consents for the first seven wind farms and there is an auction to happen later in the year. That process is...
