Ábhair Shaincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Matters (14 Jul 2022)

Catherine Connolly: I wish to advise the House of the following matters in respect of which notice has been given under Standing Order 37 and the name of the Member in each case: (1) Deputy Michael Moynihan — to discuss infrastructure works in Castlemagner, County Cork, to provide for additional housing development; (2) Deputy Jennifer Whitmore - to discuss reports of a chronic shortage of childcare...

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

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

Martin Kenny: As the Leas-Cheann Comhairle was reading the list of various Topical Issue matters, it brought into focus what we are talking about here. While the summer economic statement may paint a rosy picture, when you listen to those matters raised, you hear of all the various issues throughout the country that are affecting people. These are the issues of services mainly that are so devoid in so...

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

Ruairi Ó Murchú: Deputy Andrews, Deputy McGuinness and Deputy Kenny dealt with some of the realities of the world people are living in. It is a matter of the services that are not being dealt with. It is a matter of failures over many years, such as CervicalCheck, thalidomide and women dealing with the mesh issue. It is a matter of disability services and mental health services. We are all dealing with...

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

Richard Boyd Barrett: The Government has shown utter disrespect for democracy this week by barrelling through a deluge of legislation that was guillotined without proper scrutiny. It is a cynical tactic. It shows contempt both for this House and for the people. Some of us have protested very strongly at the Business Committee about this. Unfortunately, however, the Business Committee is not a democracy and the...

Summer Economic Statement: Statements (14 Jul 2022)

Richard Boyd Barrett: The Deputy is wasting his time there.

Summer Economic Statement: Statements (14 Jul 2022)

John McGuinness: This House means something to me. It means something to the people who elected me and to the country generally. Deputy Boyd Barrett is on the Business Committee. He should do something about it instead of slagging me about it.

Summer Economic Statement: Statements (14 Jul 2022)

Richard Boyd Barrett: I was not slagging the Deputy, I was slagging the party.

Summer Economic Statement: Statements (14 Jul 2022)

John McGuinness: The fact is that we have to do something as a Parliament. We have to be heard, and we are not being heard. The other frightening aspect of all this is that real detailed budgetary matters, this summer economic statement and policies that would make a difference to the country and the people who live in it are now not being debated even at those parliamentary party meetings, and I am speaking...

Summer Economic Statement: Statements (14 Jul 2022)

John McGuinness: There is no doubt that the overall economic performance of the country has stood the test of Covid-19 and the war and so on. That is being shouldered by many of the small to medium-sized businesses that all of us know within our own constituencies. They are, if you like, hiding the fact that they are experiencing enormous difficulties just to continue in their development and hold on to...

Summer Economic Statement: Statements (14 Jul 2022)

Richard Boyd Barrett: On a point of order, I want it noted that the two senior Ministers, as we are about to begin the summer recess, are leaving the Chamber, meaning only the Minister of State with responsibility for heritage will remain, when the spokespersons for many of the party groups have not yet responded to the summer economic statement. That is outrageous.

Summer Economic Statement: Statements (14 Jul 2022)

Michael McGrath: We had two hours of debate in committee.

Summer Economic Statement: Statements (14 Jul 2022)

Richard Boyd Barrett: This is the Dáil.

Summer Economic Statement: Statements (14 Jul 2022)

Catherine Connolly: That is not a point of order. The Deputy's slot will come up in due course.

Summer Economic Statement: Statements (14 Jul 2022)

Chris Andrews: The soaring cost of living and the rising inflation rate are showing no let-up, pushing ordinary working families to the pin of their collar. The impact is far-reaching, and it is not just in regard to food and household bills that families are feeling the pressure. The cost-of-living crisis is having an impact on the health and well-being of children throughout the State. I have never had...

Summer Economic Statement: Statements (14 Jul 2022)

Róisín Shortall: I welcome the opportunity to speak in this debate, if it can be called a debate, or to make statements, although it is regrettable that neither of the Cabinet Ministers with responsibility for the finance area could see their way to spending two hours in the Dáil to listen to what Deputies have to say about the issues. It is especially regrettable given there is virtually no...

Summer Economic Statement: Statements (14 Jul 2022)

Joe Carey: I welcome this opportunity to contribute to this important debate. The summer economic statement is a testament to how the economy has been managed in the past decade in a careful, balanced and prudent way. The balance between taxes and expenditure and managing a prudent economy is always made up of difficult choices. It is easy to promise everything to everyone, an approach those on the...

Summer Economic Statement: Statements (14 Jul 2022)

Duncan Smith: I welcome the opportunity to speak on the summer economic statement on behalf of the Labour Party. It is undeniable that the statement shows how well the economy is doing on paper right now, but this is only on paper. These abstract economic figures do not tally with the real lived experience of hard-pressed households in my own Fingal constituency and across the country. The only numbers...
