Allocation of Time: Motion (27 Sep 2022)

Jack Chambers: I move: “It is proposed that, notwithstanding anything in the Resolution of the Dáil of 20th September, 2022— (1) in respect of the Motions for Financial Resolutions by the Minister for Finance, the following arrangements shall apply: (a)the motions shall, in accordance with the following schedule, be moved and grouped together for the purposes of debate, and if not...

Allocation of Time: Motion (27 Sep 2022)

Catherine Connolly: Is the motion agreed?

Allocation of Time: Motion (27 Sep 2022)

Richard Boyd Barrett: It is not agreed. I will not call a vote but I want it noted that the final item is disposing of €5 billion. It is a big decision to put it into the rainy day fund rather than, for example, spend it on housing or other things. We should have a full debate and a hell of a lot more than two minutes each. I wish to object to that fact. I will not call a full vote but I do not agree...

Allocation of Time: Motion (27 Sep 2022)

Pádraig Mac Lochlainn: Similar to Deputy Boyd Barrett, we support the principle of allocating funding to this fund but we do not have exact information in terms of the amounts. There is a bit of confusion in that regard. There is also doubt about whether the motion had to be taken. We are confused as to why the motion had to be taken tonight. The amount of time is very limited. I wish to express our real...

Allocation of Time: Motion (27 Sep 2022)

Ivana Bacik: We, in the Labour Party, also have concerns around the final motion on the National Surplus (Exceptional Contingencies) Reserve Fund. Indeed, we wrote to the Ceann Comhairle this evening to express our objections to the proposal to consider this motion this evening without notice and without an opportunity for debate. We have also submitted an amendment to require adequate notice and...

Allocation of Time: Motion (27 Sep 2022)

Catherine Connolly: Did Deputy Mattie McGrath wish to come in?

Allocation of Time: Motion (27 Sep 2022)

Mattie McGrath: I, too, am quite dismayed by this. I made the point known at the Business Committee today that we in the Rural Independent Group do not support this. It is a massive amount of money. I do not disagree with the concept; I am all for it. Surely, however, it merits more debate than two minutes per group. Why is it being done on budget night when it is not part of the financial resolution...

Allocation of Time: Motion (27 Sep 2022)

Eamon Ryan: I understand the points made by Opposition Deputies, including the technical point about whether it counts as a financial resolution. However, I think they would also understand and agree that the world is full of uncertainty around economic developments and so on. It is important for us to give clarity and strength of purpose to-----

Allocation of Time: Motion (27 Sep 2022)

Brendan Howlin: Democracy.

Allocation of Time: Motion (27 Sep 2022)

Eamon Ryan: -----putting the funds into the reserve fund. It is appropriate for us to debate that tonight.

Allocation of Time: Motion (27 Sep 2022)

Brendan Howlin: On a point of order, it is unprecedented to have a non-financial resolution presented in the debate. We had much debate about establishing the fund. It is a huge chunk of public money and it is quite wrong that the Government wants to give a signal. It has to have the democratic authority to do that.

Allocation of Time: Motion (27 Sep 2022)

Catherine Connolly: I thank the Deputy. We are moving on.

Allocation of Time: Motion (27 Sep 2022)

Brendan Howlin: I ask that it be deferred until tomorrow at least.

Allocation of Time: Motion (27 Sep 2022)

Catherine Connolly: I have given a lenient interpretation of the point of order. I have allowed a leader and spokesperson from each party to speak. I take it the motion is not agreed.

Allocation of Time: Motion (27 Sep 2022)

Mattie McGrath: It is not agreed.

Allocation of Time: Motion (27 Sep 2022)

Catherine Connolly: I understood from some of the comments it was not agreed but that a vote was not being called. Is that correct?

Allocation of Time: Motion (27 Sep 2022)

Richard Boyd Barrett: It is only because we will lose time later; it is Hobson's choice.

Allocation of Time: Motion (27 Sep 2022)

Mattie McGrath: It is the same here; it is not agreed.

Allocation of Time: Motion (27 Sep 2022)

Brendan Howlin: On a point of order-----

Allocation of Time: Motion (27 Sep 2022)

Catherine Connolly: It was not clear that it was a point of order. We are not going to repeat it.
