Summer Economic Statement: Statements (Resumed) (14 Jul 2022)

James O'Connor: The Government has been doing its level best over the course of the last two and a half years, since we came into power, to support families that are struggling and we will continue to do that. In advance of the budget, we should take stock of the situation in the world economy. We are facing unprecedented uncertainty, which has driven large increases in interest rates. The euro and the...

Summer Economic Statement: Statements (Resumed) (14 Jul 2022)

Martin Browne: I agree with Deputy O'Connor on one thing. The Government did not get things right. With its record on housing, health and childcare, it has got them completely wrong. Another Deputy a few minutes ago talked about uncertainty. I will tell both Deputies about uncertainty. Sinn Féin Deputies know low and middle-income families as well. The Government does not have not a monopoly on...

Summer Economic Statement: Statements (Resumed) (14 Jul 2022)

Jennifer Carroll MacNeill: It is welcome to work within a budgetary structure in which we have a measured opportunity to reflect on income tax, the current economic position, the challenges the country faces and the necessary and appropriate budgetary responses. I always welcome the process of the summer economic statements and the autumn statements because it shows a State that is thinking, planning and reflecting on...

Summer Economic Statement: Statements (Resumed) (14 Jul 2022)

Matt Shanahan: Everett McKinley Dirksen, a US politician and civil rights activist, coined the famous phrase, "A billion here, a billion there, and pretty soon you're talking real money". Never in the history of the State have we had as large a sum of public money to disburse. It is €85.8 billion next year, up 6.5% on last year. With that also, never has our national debt been higher. It is...

Summer Economic Statement: Statements (Resumed) (14 Jul 2022)

Patricia Ryan: The summer economic statement is a key component of the annual budget cycle providing an economic context and setting outside of the parameters of the budget. Unfortunately, this year's statement has not provided any certainty to households struggling with the immediate effect of the cost-of-living crisis and serious questions surround the credibility of some of the figures published. It...

Summer Economic Statement: Statements (Resumed) (14 Jul 2022)

Cormac Devlin: I welcome the opportunity to examine the summer economic statement. Clearly, we have a challenging period ahead. The Government was not found wanting when it came to supporting incomes, jobs and enterprise during the Covid-19 pandemic. People recognise that the pandemic was handled reasonably well. However, the increased cost of living is having an impact on their standard of living....

Summer Economic Statement: Statements (Resumed) (14 Jul 2022)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: For the record, it is well-established parliamentary practice for a Minister of State to sit in for part or all of a debate, as the case may be. There is nothing extraordinary about the Minister of State, Deputy Noonan, being here. I do know that Deputy Boyd Barrett intends no offence to him.

Summer Economic Statement: Statements (Resumed) (14 Jul 2022)

Summer Economic Statement: Statements (Resumed) (14 Jul 2022)

Richard Bruton: Members should listen to one another. It is a debate. I think it is extraordinary that we have come to the stage in this House that terms such as big companies in the food sector, big companies in the ICT sector or big companies in the energy sector should become terms of abuse. This is how we sometimes regard these companies, which have created between them the economic success we have...
