Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection
360. To ask the Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection if her attention has been drawn to a pre-budget submission by an organisation (details supplied); and if she will make a statement on the matter. [45532/22]
I received the Pre-Budget Submission from the National Youth Council of Ireland.
I was very grateful for the time and effort taken by National Youth Council of Ireland in producing this submission and in drawing these suggestions to my attention, as I am with all of the community and voluntary groups representing a wide range of cohorts within Irish society, all of whom advocate their position with clarity and strength.
The views and recommendations of National Youth Council of Ireland's will form part of consideration by Government across a range of policy areas, including social protection measures, to be included as part of Budget 2023, taking account of Government priorities, available resources, and the need to protect the most vulnerable in society.
I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
