Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Island Communities (4 Oct 2022)

Patrick O'Donovan: As for the seals on the beach, which Deputy Griffin and I saw with the OPW when we were there, the OPW has a plan to improve the signage and to erect appropriate signage on the island ahead of the 2023 visitor season on foot of the requests made on the day we were there. The OPW has been in dialogue with the National Parks and Wildlife Service to make sure that this is done properly. As...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Teaching Qualifications (4 Oct 2022)

Pádraig O'Sullivan: Cork Life Centre, on Winter's Hill, Cork, is a one-of-a-kind institution. It is a voluntary organisation offering an alternative learning environment to marginalised young people. The centre and its staff often offer one-to-one tuition in junior certificate and leaving certificate subjects but, for the staff of Cork Life Centre, value is placed on social education just as much as the...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Teaching Qualifications (4 Oct 2022)

Norma Foley: I thank the Deputy for his question and his ongoing interest in Cork Life Centre. The centre, in Sunday's Well, caters for young people who have encountered challenges in completing mainstream education. The centre is one of a number of such alternative education providers nationally. The Department of Education has provided funding to Cork Life Centre for the last number of years, with...

Pádraig O'Sullivan: I welcome the investment the Minister has put into the centre over the past few years, which, as she has detailed, is €177,500, as well as the 6,000 co-operation hours. That is not in dispute and is greatly welcomed by all at the centre, including Don O'Leary and Rachel Lucey. I welcome the commitment the Minister has given to honour the agreement, as she has said, through the Review...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Budget 2023 (4 Oct 2022)

Catherine Connolly: It is Question No. 91 in the name of Deputy Richmond. We had a forewarning.

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Budget 2023 (4 Oct 2022)

Michael McGrath: I thank Deputy Dillon for raising this question. Budget 2023 contains a significant response to support households, public and community services and businesses, with spending measures of some €4.5 billion in aggregate. The Government announced a €2.2 billion winter cost-of-living package for households, including a double week of social welfare schemes in October, a fuel...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Budget 2023 (4 Oct 2022)

Alan Dillon: It can be simply said that families were the biggest winners in this year's budget, but also that there were a considerable number of measures for young people. Certainly, the once-off reduction in the student contribution of €1,000 for eligible students, the once-off €1,000 increase for the postgraduate fee contributions and a once-off double monthly payment for those in...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Budget 2023 (4 Oct 2022)

Michael McGrath: The rental tax credit will be legislated for in the Finance Bill over the coming weeks. Once the Finance Bill has been passed by both Houses and enacted, I anticipate that individuals will quickly have the opportunity to register and claim the rental tax credit on the PAYE Anytime system, the Revenue's online system. The Minister for Finance, Deputy Donohoe, will outline the details of...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Budget 2023 (4 Oct 2022)

Alan Dillon: I thank the Minister for his clarification. This budget will make a substantial difference to thousands of households who will benefit from the once-off measures aimed at easing the cost-of-living crisis. The €1.1 billion income tax package will certainly put more money back into people's pockets, with tax savings of €800 a year for single earners and double that for...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Budget 2023 (4 Oct 2022)

Jennifer Carroll MacNeill: I, too, commend the Minister, Deputy McGrath, on that work. I have a question on the practicalities of the business supports, on which there is a state aid clarification yet to happen. For example, a business in my area, a retail vegetable deli store in my constituency, received a bill for €6,982 for the last 62 days. It had been €1,300 the previous year. He has to pay that...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Budget 2023 (4 Oct 2022)

Michael McGrath: I thank the Deputies. In response to Deputy Dillon, we are conscious that the next number of months will be very tough for many people. Deputy Carroll MacNeill gave an example of a business utility bill. We are seeing them being brought forward as well by households and constituents, who are sharing with us details of the bills they are receiving. What we have done will certainly help to...

Brendan Griffin: 107. To ask the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform the position on the preparation of a conservation plan for An Blascaod Mór and the provision of public conveniences at the same location; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [48254/22]

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Island Communities (4 Oct 2022)

Brendan Griffin: This is about An Blascaod Mór. I thank the Minister of State, Deputy O'Donovan, for visiting An Blascaod Mór in recent weeks. True to the Minister of State's word, when I raised it in the House earlier in the year, he said he would visit. I want to ask about the future of the landing facility, if a safer one can be put in place, and if there is any progress on that. Perhaps the...
