Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (22 Sep 2022)

Ivana Bacik: Later today, along with our finance spokesperson, Deputy Nash, I and my Labour colleagues will be introducing our alternative Labour budget and our proposals for budget 2023. We are doing so at a time when we are facing unprecedented crises. There is a crisis in the cost of living, and there are exorbitant price increases in food and fuel and in basic household necessities. We are also...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (22 Sep 2022)

Leo Varadkar: I look forward to reading the Labour Party's alternative budget, hopefully being able to take on board some of the suggestions made. We will have a budget next week. The details will be announced by the Minister for Finance and the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform next Tuesday. People will see a response of scale from the Government to help them with the cost-of-living crisis....

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (22 Sep 2022)

Ivana Bacik: I think everyone across the country will welcome the Tánaiste's commitment that in the budget in just five days' time, we will see from Government a response of scale, and in the Tánaiste's words, "a multibillion euro package". However, what we need to see is also an ambition of scale and a real ambition to address these crises that are confronting so many households and a real...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (22 Sep 2022)

Leo Varadkar: I will be brief. We probably need to take a dual approach to this. There is an international inflation crisis that is driven by monetary policy, the war in Ukraine and high energy bills. We need to respond to that reality by helping people with their bills. We need to help put more money in their pockets and also help to reduce energy bills in particular. As a country, we had a high cost...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (22 Sep 2022)

Richard Boyd Barrett: Nearly 100 years ago, Ireland's national poet, W.B. Yeats, wrote that this was no country for old men. If he was writing today in the face of a cost-of-living and housing disaster, he might well write that this is no country for older people, younger people, working people, people with disabilities or the vulnerable. It is a country for profit-hungry energy companies, big corporations and...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (22 Sep 2022)

Leo Varadkar: I thank the Deputy for raising the important issue of the very high cost of rent in Ireland, which is out of kilter and disproportionate when compared with our peer countries. I acknowledge that. What the Deputy has said about what I have said in the past is not the case. I have never said that landlords should be prioritised. A little like the Deputy’s leader, Deputy Doherty would...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (22 Sep 2022)

Pearse Doherty: We have been having this conversation now for years and I feel that at some stage the penny might drop because every year we see all the statistics go in the wrong direction. When new rents are going up by 9.2% a year and house prices are going up by 14%, how far does rent have to go before the Tánaiste starts to realise the Government’s policies are actually contributing to this...

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: The Deputy’s time is up.

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (22 Sep 2022)

Pearse Doherty: -----which would put that money back into renters’ pockets, and a ban on rent increases for the next three years. Is that something the Government will entertain because the Tánaiste has been stating publicly that he wants cuts for landlords?

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (22 Sep 2022)

Leo Varadkar: The only thing I have said about landlords - and I stand over it and I have made this very clear - is that if there are any tax concessions for landlords in the budget, there should also be tax concessions for renters. That is what I said and what I meant, and I stand over that comment. If there are concessions for landlords in the budget, there should also be tax concessions for renters....

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Flexible Work Practices (22 Sep 2022)

Alan Farrell: I agree entirely with Deputy Moynihan, and I support the Minister's comment that the Government does not necessarily have to be the first to move. As we all know, employers are responsible for ensuring their staff who happen to be working from home have suitable seating, among other things, which is important. The employers, therefore, play a role. I fully appreciate what the Minister is...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Flexible Work Practices (22 Sep 2022)

Fergus O'Dowd: When State or local authority employees are working at home, they are often uncontactable. Part of this process should include the provision of facilities at home for employees of the State, local authorities and the HSE, paid for by their employers, to correspond over the airwaves with public representatives and other people who are trying to get them. It is a big and serious issue and...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Flexible Work Practices (22 Sep 2022)

Paschal Donohoe: The Deputy has concluded the discussion in an appropriate way because there has to be a balance. Public services still need to be provided, contact needs to be made available to citizens and consumers and employers still have to be viable and provide for and meet the needs of their customers. There is clearly a balance in how all this can be done. All the Deputies have acknowledged the...
