An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (6 Dec 2022)

An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (6 Dec 2022)

Mary Lou McDonald: The fact the Government would seek to move flawed legislation in this way and, furthermore, to guillotine the debate is all the more insulting to the women who have suffered as a result of the CervicalCheck scandal.

An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (6 Dec 2022)

Bríd Smith: I totally agree with Deputy McDonald on that point. I want to raise another issue on the Order of Business, and that is a motion we are being asked to pass without debate on the comprehensive agreement in the field of air transport. This deal is aimed at growing a market in transnational flights and climate is mentioned once in the briefing document. At a time when emissions are rising and...

An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (6 Dec 2022)

Mattie McGrath: I have written to the Business Committee about an issue I raised last week on behalf of the Rural Independent Group. We need a calm and reasoned debate on the influx of immigration into our country. I am not talking about refugees fleeing war. I am talking about the staggering figures that are there from places like Algeria. Fewer than 100 people from that country applied in 2021 and a...

An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (6 Dec 2022)

Bríd Smith: No room at the inn, is there not, Deputy McGrath?

An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (6 Dec 2022)

Mattie McGrath: It needs to be held very soon and to be respectful, as I said, not with people shouting anybody else down. Everybody is entitled to have their say in this Chamber, thanks to the Ceann Comhairle and the Leas-Cheann Comhairle.

An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (6 Dec 2022)

Peadar Tóibín: There is a life-and-death catastrophe unfolding in the hospitals, especially in my own region at the moment. Eleven ambulances were stuck outside of Drogheda hospital last Saturday because there was not a bed, a chair or a trolley available for them. Seventeen consultants in Drogheda hospital wrote a letter to the Minister stating that it is a threat to the life and health of patients in...

An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (6 Dec 2022)

Róisín Shortall: I too want to raise the patient safety Bill. We have waited over six months for Government amendments. They were circulated and we received them on Friday morning. There are 42 pages of amendments from the Minister. There has been no briefing and no pre-legislative scrutiny, and the deadline was on Monday morning for amendments to those amendments. That is an entirely unreasonable way of...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (6 Dec 2022)

Seán Canney: I feel frustration when somebody raises an issue about a tax such as this which is trying to free up land to have houses built on it. However, I believe this is an imposition on farmers and it should be wiped off the agenda. What Minister is devising this policy? Will that Minister meet farmers’ representatives in order that they can get a clearer understanding of what is going on?...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (6 Dec 2022)

Michael McGrath: I thank Deputy Canney. There is no problem with engagement, which should always take place between stakeholders. Of course farmers have issues with this measure and will be affected by it. This is a tax of the Department of Finance. The Revenue Commissioners are involved. The local authorities have a central role, as has the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage, and the...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (6 Dec 2022)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: The time is up please, Deputy.

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (6 Dec 2022)

Richard Boyd Barrett: Will it control rents and make them affordable? Will it deliver public housing via our local authorities whose job it is to do so?

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (6 Dec 2022)

Michael McGrath: Yes, we will. Deputy Boyd Barrett should also put the full facts on the record when he talks about the performance of the local authorities in Dublin. The four Dublin local authorities currently have 2,000 homes under construction on various sites and in excess of 3,700 others in the pipeline for delivery at this point in time. Shanganagh is under way. The LDA is now building homes -...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (6 Dec 2022)

Richard Boyd Barrett: For the first time in 15 years.

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (6 Dec 2022)

Michael McGrath: The Minister for Housing, Local Government and Heritage, Deputy Darragh O'Brien, is also providing €100 million to local authorities to help them clear legacy debt. This will assist in accelerating the delivery of social homes on sites that local authorities own by taking away the debt related to them. He is also putting in place a fund for the Housing Agency to assist it in...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (6 Dec 2022)

Seán Canney: I raise the issue of the residential zoned land tax and its implications for family farms around the country. Farmers are private landowners. They are not builders. They own the land to farm it and try to make a living from it. They do not hoard it as an investment. The fact that farmers are completely unaware that some of their land is being zoned for residential purposes leaves them in...
