Allocation of Time: Motion (27 Sep 2022)

Catherine Connolly: I am sorry but on the question of it being unprecedented, I do not believe that is accurate. I am instructed that something similar happened in 2020 when the national reserve fund motion was taken on the night. I cannot remember-----

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: We are out of time.

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

Michael McNamara: The Supreme Court found this invalid and, instead of broadening the scheme, as any decent human being might envisage would happen, to help these people and give them some degree of independence along with their parents and those who drive them, the Government used the cloak of budget night and a budget resolution, in the convention centre, to narrow the scheme on the express promise that we...

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

Michael McNamara: I suppose everybody would agree that the budget contains many positive measures that are very badly needed to address the cost of living. However, most of the measures are once off. We know the reason for that, which is that, as most would agree, the world is in a perilous state economically and we are uniquely exposed. We continually talk about being such an open, trading economy. We are...

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

Catherine Connolly: I thought I was to have the unenviable task of being the last speaker and trying to keep you awake, a Cheann Comhairle. However, that particular burden has not fallen on my shoulders. The Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform quoted Seamus Heaney. I believe Seamus Heaney was actually paraphrasing Václav Havel, the former president of Czechoslovakia. He might have been better...

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

Thomas Pringle: I am not sure what the purpose of budget day and these budget speeches is anymore. We all know exactly what is going to be in this document before we get in here and having to engage with this whole process is a bit of a sham really. This budget has failed many people who are struggling to make ends meet. This is very clearly a budget for energy companies, oil companies and landlords. It...

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

Joan Collins: I welcome the opportunity to speak on the budget but I think, as my colleague, Deputy Pringle, said, is just a bit of a performance, with us all standing up speaking on a budget that has been out in the media for the last week. I want to mention some statistics not referred to by the Ministers for Finance and Public Expenditure and Reform. The figures are courtesy of the Society of St....

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

Michael Fitzmaurice: I welcome the opportunity to speak on the budget. I was happy with some of the things in the budget and there are some things I was not as happy with. I cannot for the life of me understand why people would go on the rural schemes such as Tús from what I have read today. People on such schemes will receive an extra €5 but if people do not go on the scheme and stay at home they...
