Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection
I have received Safe Ireland's Pre-Budget Submission.
I was very grateful for the time and effort taken by Safe 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 Safe Ireland will form part of consideration by Government when forming social welfare 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.
