National Development Plan

Ceisteanna - Questions - Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: National Development Plan (4 Oct 2022)

Mairead Farrell: 78. To ask the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform if he will provide an update on the national development plan; the impact of cost inflation; if he will provide a list of any projects which may now need to go back out for tender; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [48646/22]

Ceisteanna - Questions - Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: National Development Plan (4 Oct 2022)

Mairead Farrell: The question is fairly self-explanatory. It is to look for an update on the national development plan, the impact of cost inflation and if the Minister of State will provide a list of any projects which may now need to go back out for tender. As the Minister of State knows, the national development plan is very significant and many people are concerned about the impact of inflation.

Ceisteanna - Questions - Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: National Development Plan (4 Oct 2022)

Ossian Smyth: The National Development Plan 2021-2030, NDP, published last year, demonstrates the Government’s commitment to meeting Ireland’s infrastructure and investment needs over the medium-term horizon. The NDP 2021-2030 provides €165 billion in public capital funding alongside a detailed and positive vision for Ireland up to 2030 as part of Project Ireland 2040. In budget...

Ceisteanna - Questions - Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: National Development Plan (4 Oct 2022)

Mairead Farrell: There are two questions that spring to mind initially. I am aware of the €800 million that was assigned in the budget. I am wondering how it looks at the moment in respect of capital carry-over. The Minister of State also mentioned that the extensions would be done by the approving authorities, which is fair enough. Is there any analysis at departmental level to see if there much...

Ceisteanna - Questions - Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: National Development Plan (4 Oct 2022)

Ossian Smyth: I understand the capital carry-over is projected to be €800 million for next year, although we will not know without the outturn. The Minister, Deputy Michael McGrath, can tell me if I am wrong, but in general I believe we are not constrained by money in our capital programme at the moment. The real constraints are coming from lack of labour and delays that arise in the legal process...

Ceisteanna - Questions - Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: National Development Plan (4 Oct 2022)

Mairead Farrell: I thank the Minister of State. On the inflation co-operation framework, that was totally new when it was announced. I was wondering how it is working at this time. Were there any hiccups at the start? One of the things that sprung to mind at the time, which I had discussed, was that certain contracting authorities might not have the same ability, know-how or knowledge base going into it....

Ceisteanna - Questions - Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: National Development Plan (4 Oct 2022)

Ossian Smyth: I meet quarterly with the Construction Industry Federation to ask it how things are going. My understanding is that it is happy and satisfied and is not looking for changes to what was brought in in the inflation co-operation framework. When a new capital works contract is taken out, the various sub-indices of inflation are agreed and a risk-sharing arrangement is put in place. If a...

Budget 2023

Ceisteanna - Questions - Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Budget 2023 (4 Oct 2022)

Gerald Nash: 79. To ask the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform if his Department has examined or requested a SWITCH analysis of the budget 2023 measures, excluding the 2022 temporary cost-of-living measures to be carried out; if he will provide a copy of any such analysis reviewed by his Department, for the distributional impact of the permanent expenditure and taxation changes from budget 2023...

Ceisteanna - Questions - Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Budget 2023 (4 Oct 2022)

Gerald Nash: This time last week the Minister and his Government colleagues were patting themselves on the back on a job well done on budget day. There is no shortage of graphs and other narrative in the glossy expenditure report claiming how much better off low-income households will be as a result of the once-off measures combined with the budget 2023 measures. However, when we strip away the...

Ceisteanna - Questions - Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Budget 2023 (4 Oct 2022)

Michael McGrath: In addition to a €4.4 billion package of temporary supports to be provided this year, budget 2023 provides for additional core expenditure of €5.8 billion. This significant commitment, which will bring overall core spending next year to €85.9 billion, is designed to support households and businesses in a challenging economic climate, and to invest in public services and...

Defective Concrete Products Levy: Motion [Private Members] (4 Oct 2022)

Matt Carthy: The twisted logic behind the decisions of this Government can often be mind-boggling but the defence of the concrete block levy we have just heard would send the head spinning. In the midst of a housing crisis that has merged with an inflationary crisis the Government is proposing a measure that will make houses more expensive. It has essentially proposed a defective funding mechanism to...

Defective Concrete Products Levy: Motion [Private Members] (4 Oct 2022)

Eoin Ó Broin: I listened carefully to the Minister for Finance. He said the Government has a duty to homeowners living with defective homes. That will come as a great surprise to those homeowners because they have been living with defective homes for over 11 years. They have been campaigning for action from Government. How many homeowners in Donegal have received their full grant amount in those 11...

Defective Concrete Products Levy: Motion [Private Members] (4 Oct 2022)

Seán Fleming: I have listened carefully to the comments of the Deputies in the House tonight. The scandal of defective concrete products is one which this Government is committed to addressing. We have already spoken about the redress scheme that this Government has put in place which will assist an estimated 7,500 householders who, through no fault of their own, have had their lives severely impacted by...

Defective Concrete Products Levy: Motion [Private Members] (4 Oct 2022)

Claire Kerrane: If this was about the industry paying the price, of course, we would not be here this evening. It is, quite frankly, naive of the Minister of State to think that this will not be passed on to people building their first homes and to those forced to rebuild their homes. I listened to the response by the Minister, Deputy Donohoe, earlier on, much of which he spent justifying why the banks and...

Defective Concrete Products Levy: Motion [Private Members] (4 Oct 2022)

Michael McNamara: This issue goes back quite a while. The necessity to pursue the quarries, or at least investigate pursuing the quarries, has been obvious to every fair-minded person in the House and country for a long time. Nobody could but be moved by the plight of the mica homeowners and something clearly had to be done for them. One thing I took from my very limited meetings with them and their...

Defective Concrete Products Levy: Motion [Private Members] (4 Oct 2022)

Thomas Pringle: This is a further punishment for the victims of the mica scandal. That is what is really shocking about this debate. It is a further piling on of wrongdoing on top of them. The victims of the mica scandal are still waiting for the redress scheme to be announced, yet the costs they face will be increased by the levy the Government is proposing in the budget. That is completely wrong, but...

Defective Concrete Products Levy: Motion [Private Members] (4 Oct 2022)

Violet Wynne: I am here to speak on behalf of the good people of County Clare in respect of the proposed levy of 10% on concrete blocks and products to be introduced next April. This levy has drawn huge attention, and rightly so. In the midst of a homeless crisis that has embarrassingly and shamefully reached record numbers, what sense is there in having those who are trying to build or buy their own...

Defective Concrete Products Levy: Motion [Private Members] (4 Oct 2022)

Mattie McGrath: I also support this motion. What about the perpetrators of the crisis, the quarries and concrete plants? This industrial sector is dominated and controlled by CRH plc, Ireland's largest company, which is number one in the US and the UK and is the world's third largest manufacturer of construction materials. CRH plc settled a price-fixing, market-sharing case taken in the state of Virginia...
