Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (24 Nov 2022)

Leo Varadkar: I acknowledge the situation in UHL is grave. The hospital suffers from a high level of overcrowding almost all the time. There has been a lot of investment in the hospital in recent years. The budget has never been greater. Notwithstanding the difficulties in recruiting and retaining staff, there have never been more staff. I include medical and clinical staff in that. Extra beds have...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (24 Nov 2022)

Leo Varadkar: I do not think it is correct to say what the Deputy said about every metric. I will just mention two, as she raised metrics. We anticipate this year between 20,000 and 28,000 new homes being built. That does not include derelict homes being brought back into use and student accommodation. Approximately 26,000 to 28,000 new houses and apartments will be built in Ireland this year. That is...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (24 Nov 2022)

Catherine Murphy: I did not hear what the approach will be. The Tánaiste needs to tell us what that approach will be and what difference it will make. Is he aware that commencements are down by 30% in the past three months? Only yesterday there was a report about a reduction in the number of mortgage approvals, which is not a metric I want to see. What does the Tánaiste mean when he talks about...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (24 Nov 2022)

Leo Varadkar: I referred to two cities - Sydney, where the average house price is AUD1 million, and rents in New York. The Deputy has represented what I said in a way that was not said and certainly not the way I intended it. I believe Ireland is a great country in which to live. That is not just my opinion. The United Nations, which assesses these things objectively, put Ireland in the top ten...

Catherine Murphy: It depends on the individual’s lived experience.

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (24 Nov 2022)

Denis Naughten: There is nothing more frightening than watching someone gasping for their breath. Despite the fact that we live on a windswept island off the west coast of Europe, every day four people die in Ireland due to poor air quality. Two of the key underlying statistics when it comes to these threats are, first, that one in five children in Ireland has asthma and, second, that one in 13 adults has...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (24 Nov 2022)

Pearse Doherty: Tá sé tagtha chun solais go bhfuil táillí bóithre dola ar fud an Stáit le hardú go dtí an leibhéal is airde. Is buille ollmhór é seo d’oibrithe agus do theaghlaigh, ag am ina bhfuil praghsanna peitril agus díosail chomh hard is atá siad. Buailfidh na táillí seo go mór agus go díreach iad siúd...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (24 Nov 2022)

Leo Varadkar: I thank the Deputy. I acknowledge that Ireland faces a cost-of-living crisis, as does most of the world, and we are seeing inflation at levels not seen for a generation. That impacts different people and households in different ways. People who drive and commute are affected in a serious way because the price of petrol and diesel is so high at the moment, notwithstanding the reductions in...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (24 Nov 2022)

Pearse Doherty: Motorists listening to the Tánaiste will find it incredible, including the people he says he represents in his constituency who use tolls. TII put out a notification last year. Tolls increased this year already across eight roads. That has already happened and the second increase will take effect on 1 January. These tolls are increasing unless there is Government action. The...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (24 Nov 2022)

Leo Varadkar: The briefing I was given was that there had not been an increase in the maximum toll for nine years. That may well be incorrect-----

Catherine Murphy: It is correct.

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (24 Nov 2022)

Leo Varadkar: -----and I will get that double-checked today. In terms of information, I was not informed, nor were the Taoiseach or the Cabinet, but I accept the doctrine of collective responsibility and if Ministers were aware, then the Government was collectively aware. The question now is what we can do about it. I would like to be able to give a cast-iron commitment today but it would not be...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (24 Nov 2022)

Catherine Murphy: The Tánaiste gave an interview at the weekend that caused a lot of anger. He said young people considering emigrating because of the extortionate housing costs could find the grass is always greener. He said if they go to a successful busy city, they will find the same high rents as here but the rents could be lower if they went to "a very rural area or a third or fourth tier city". ...

Norma Foley: It is intended that the school will move to interim accommodation on its permanent site at Mount Anville for September 2023. The grant of planning permission was received on 16 September 2022. The Department officials, the project manager and the design team have engaged with the planning roles and departments within Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council to agree the works required for...
