Dáil Eireann Debate
Mr. Morgan: I seek the adjournment of the Dáil under Standing Order 31 to raise the following matter of urgent public concern, namely, the abject failure of the Government to take any action to tackle house prices; the fact that claims by the Minister of State with responsibility for housing that house prices would stabilise have been proven false by figures which show that in 2005 prices for second-hand homes in Dublin rose by an average of €1,600 a week, bringing the average price of a second-hand house in the capital to €468,000; and the necessity for the Minister of State to outline what action will be taken by the Government on this critical issue.
Mr. Healy: I seek the adjournment of the Dáil under Standing Order 31 to raise a matter of urgent local and national importance, namely, the need for the Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment to remove the cap which is destroying community employment schemes and depriving local communities, towns and villages of necessary community services, and to ask the Minister to make a statement on the matter.
Mr. Sherlock: I seek the adjournment of the Dáil under Standing Order 31 to discuss a specific and important matter of public interest requiring urgent attention, namely, the need for the Government to come together with beet growers and Greencore in a joint effort to save the Irish sugar industry, with the emphasis in any discussions placed on saving the entire industry rather than merely on the issue of compensation.
Dr. Cowley: I seek the adjournment of the Dáil under Standing Order 31 to raise a matter of major local and national importance, namely, the nitrates regulations which will seriously damage productive farming in Ireland, will have grave implications for all farmers, including REPS, dairy, tillage, pig and poultry farmers and beef finishers, impose fertiliser limits on farmers based on inadequate advice and irreparably damage farming and the rural economy.
