Financial Resolutions 2022 - Budget Statement 2023 (27 Sep 2022)

Richard Boyd Barrett: At the Business Committee, I suggested that we should do something to change the format of this budget debate. Quite frankly, it was designed to facilitate a lot of spin by the Government, and then to bore the pants off people for about five hours after that, to the point at which people would lose the will to live.

Richard Boyd Barrett: My point is that the real democracy was happening out on the streets of Dublin on Saturday when 20,000 people came out in what was one of the biggest demonstrations we have seen in recent years with workers, students, pensioners, people with disabilities, and people from all over the country. They are sick of this Government, sick of the spin and sick of the propaganda, when they know the...

Cian O'Callaghan: I will address the housing aspects of this budget. It is very disappointing that both senior Ministers, when talking about the housing measures contained in the budget, said that they feel the Government's housing plan is working. This shows that they are massively out of touch with the reality of people's lives when it comes to housing. They seem to be oblivious to the huge pain there is...

Financial Resolutions 2022 - Budget Statement 2023 (27 Sep 2022)

Duncan Smith: The HSE has made it clear to unions from day one that the circular that gives effect to the decision to pay non-HSE staff lies squarely with the Department of Health and the Minister. In essence, that power lies squarely with the Government and it is not delivering this payment, a bonus payment of recognition that has now become a much-needed cost-of-living payment for those workers. The...

Financial Resolutions 2022 - Budget Statement 2023 (27 Sep 2022)

Duncan Smith: When the year-on-year provision for homeless services is increased, the Government is in essence acknowledging the emergency and disaster of its own policies. We need to ensure this country is a great place to grow up, get qualifications and join the workforce. We do not want people to be forever broke, straight into debt and without the hope of owning their own homes or securing a...

Financial Resolutions 2022 - Budget Statement 2023 (27 Sep 2022)

Duncan Smith: There have been many claims about whether Fine Gael or Fianna Fáil owns this budget. I am seeing a lot of Fianna Fáil in the budget. I recognise the return of the plaster politics of Fianna Fáil. While Fianna Fáil argues internally over whether to allow Bertie Ahern back to join its ranks, it is clear that Bertie economics are not only back, they are at the front and...

Financial Resolutions 2022 - Budget Statement 2023 (27 Sep 2022)

Duncan Smith: The Government is throwing money at the problem in the hope that it goes away but it will not, as we have learned from the past. The problems we have in this country are systemic and this budget lacks the ambition to drive real and meaningful change. Most of the measures are reheated, half-baked or will simply not be enough to help people. The wealth divide in this country is growing. We...

Financial Resolutions 2022 - Budget Statement 2023 (27 Sep 2022)

Róisín Shortall: Today’s budget has been billed as a giveaway budget. At nearly €11 billion, it is the largest for years. Who will benefit the most from what has been announced today? If we look behind the figures, that becomes clear. It is those on high incomes who will be most rewarded by the Government with tax cuts and an array of universal lump sum payments that disproportionately...

Duncan Smith: At 1 p.m. today, just as the Minister for Finance rose to begin the delivery of his budget speech, an email was sent by a head manager in the Mediahuis group to all staff indicating that the Fingal Independentwould cease trading from the end of October, which is a devastating blow for local media in north County Dublin. Unfortunately, the 0% VAT rate for newspapers announced in the budget...

Gerald Nash: -----costing €275 million in 2023. That is the kind of ambition we need to transform this society and to genuinely assist those who are on low and middle incomes. This is why the Labour Party says, for example, that we should have a monthly €9 public transport climate ticket, costing €300 million over the next six months, as a cost-saving and climate-positive...

Financial Resolutions 2022 - Budget Statement 2023 (27 Sep 2022)

Gerald Nash: I am concerned about the approach that has been taken by the Government this week. It diverts from the principles that were established by the Labour Party number of years ago, namely, that we should start by including all young people in this scheme. That is the direction of travel that we ought to pursue. We have question marks around how decisions will be made and how the GP schemes...
