Seán Ó Fearghaíl: Thank you, Minister.

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (1 Dec 2022)

Paschal Donohoe: -----to make a meaningful difference to those homeowners who have been affected by such a grave difficulty.

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (1 Dec 2022)

Peter Fitzpatrick: I wish to raise a very important issue with regard to an incident which happened in my hometown of Dundalk. I am sure the Minister is aware that a video showing a cyclist being deliberately knocked off his bicycle in Dundalk by a motorist who recorded the incident has gone viral. You can hear the driver laughing as he deliberately clips the cyclist before speeding away from the scene. The...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (1 Dec 2022)

Paschal Donohoe: I thank the Deputy for raising the appalling incident in question. My first thoughts go to the cyclist involved. I am sure we all send our hopes and best wishes to the person who was subject to this crime. Our hope is that the person will make a speedy recovery from what looks to have been an appalling incident. The Deputy raised the issue with regard to the commitment of the Government...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (1 Dec 2022)

Peter Fitzpatrick: Only 92 new members of the force started in Templemore this week. The Minister mentioned a figure of 200. Gardaí are not happy with their pay conditions, pensions, paperwork or rosters. Nearly everybody in this Chamber and outside it has, at some stage, relied on the assistance of the Garda. We in Dundalk have probably relied on their assistance more than most because, in recent...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (1 Dec 2022)

Paschal Donohoe: I have already answered the Deputy's question. The all-too-real scenario at the heart of the decision the Government contemplated on Tuesday morning is that where a person could be offered a job in either AIB, Bank of Ireland or PTSB, he or she could be looking after the IT systems that are vital to the functioning of our banks. That person will be offered a salary and may even be offered a...

Róisín Shortall: Not everybody is motivated by money.

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (1 Dec 2022)

Paschal Donohoe: -----and the reality I have to a acknowledge in decisions that are being made by the Government. Of course, I have a duty as to how the harm and grave difficulties of the past can be compensated for so those who were hurt and harmed can be recognised in decisions made and that have been made by the over €200 million of fines that have already been levied on our banking sector to deal...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (1 Dec 2022)

Paul Murphy: Today, we heard news about fire defects at one of the largest housing developments in the State, the Phoenix Park Racecourse apartment complex. Up to 550 apartments are affected by major deficiencies that could result in a fire racing through the common areas and spreading to other apartments. These are just some of the 100,000 apartments and duplexes around the State that are affected by...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (1 Dec 2022)

Paschal Donohoe: I thank the Deputy for raising this particularly serious matter for homeowners who are affected by these fire safety risks. I know the homes to which the Deputy refers and I can only imagine the worry and anxiety many different homeowners are facing. They have a right to be concerned about their safety and the safety of the properties that are their homes. The Government and the...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (1 Dec 2022)

Paul Murphy: These developers have and will cost people between €20,000 and €70,000, off-loading responsibility from themselves onto ordinary people who simply cannot afford it. More than that, they have put people's lives at risk by their actions, yet they are still operating and, in some cases, on the same site. How can that be allowed? How are they allowed to wash their hands of it?...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (1 Dec 2022)

Paschal Donohoe: I thank Deputy Doherty for again raising this matter. His reminder that Harry, at such a young age, has already undergone a hip operation, which is such a large and significant operation for a child to go through, and the other six children in the school of course reminds me why it is so important to make the funding available to the HSE, through the work of the Minister for Health, to put...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (1 Dec 2022)

Róisín Shortall: It was the Minister who decided the time is right to remove the €500,000 cap on bankers' pay and restore their bumper bonuses. We are told he needs to do this so we can attract good people and the top talent to run our banks. It seems no self-respecting high-flying banker would want to work for a less than €500,000, as if they could not survive on a salary that is more than...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (1 Dec 2022)

Paschal Donohoe: I will begin with the latter question regarding how we propose to get to a culture that is different to the culture to which the Deputy has referred. It is by the steps this and previous Governments have taken with regard to the regulation of our banks. It is about the changes that are fundamental in nature that have happened in the regulation of the banking sector since those awful years,...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (1 Dec 2022)

Róisín Shortall: The question is, who in the Minister's ear in terms of advising him on what is an appropriate salary for senior bank officials to be earning? Is he not getting all his advice from insiders and people who have skin in the game? On what basis did he come to the conclusion that paying somebody more than €500,000 a year will achieve a better customer service in our retail banks? On what...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (1 Dec 2022)

Pearse Doherty: Ar fud an Stáit, tá an Rialtas ag ligean síos agus ag teip leanaí agus daoine óga le míchumais agus riachtanais speisialta. Níl idirghabhála a d’athródh saolta na bpáistí seo á gcur ar fáil dóibh. Tá na mílte daoine óga le míchumais agus riachtanais speisialta fágtha ar an imeall agus an...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (1 Dec 2022)

Paschal Donohoe: I thank Deputy Doherty for raising this important matter. Where I agree with the Deputy is on the commitment that the State must have, and certainly this Government has, to give Harry the best possible start in life, recognising the needs he has and the support he deserves for the journey in life ahead of him. The Government is committed to putting in places the therapists that are...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (1 Dec 2022)

Pearse Doherty: I listened to what the Minister said and I am sure Harry's parents will be listening closely to what he said. Let me say that Harry cannot wait until next autumn. Harry had serious hip surgery last year. Harry's family and the school have been engaging with the HSE for a year, to no avail. This is an issue of whether Harry will be able stand and walk again in the future and there is no...
