Leaders’ Questions.

That was 11 weeks ago.More Button

We were right.More Button

Our analysis was correct.More Button

You blew it.More Button

Order of Business.

Question put: “That the proposal that the Dáil shall sit later than 8.30 p.m. be agreed to.”
No IndicatorVoted No More Button

We have just agreed that the Appropriation Bill, which used to be the subject of a long debate in the House and an Adjournment debate at the end of a Dáil term, does not merit debate from the Governme...More Button

Question put: “That the proposal for dealing with No. 24, Report and Final Stages of the Finance (No. 2) Bill 2008, be agreed to.”
No IndicatorVoted No More Button

A total of 65 minutes has been set aside to discuss the recapitalisation of the banks. That is inadequate and there is no provision for questions and answers from a Minister. In the context of what w...More Button

The National Pensions Reserve Fund Act 2000 requires the Government to make a contribution of 1% of gross national product to the National Pensions Reserve Fund every year. The Minister for Finance s...More Button

Has the Government now decided not to contribute to the National Pensions Reserve Fund?More Button

That may require amending legislation and, if so, when will the legislation be tabled?More Button

Finance (No. 2) Bill 2008: Report Stage (Resumed) and Final Stage.

I raised this issue yesterday. I pointed out to the Minister that where a woman is undergoing a course of IVF treatment, that treatment is only available privately and it is very expensive. First, t...More Button

I am happy to support amendment No. 18. In the course of Committee Stage the Minister spoke on several occasions about how he seemed to see this package as being particularly attractive to people in ...More Button

I move amendment No. 19: In page 50, between lines 12 and 13, to insert the following: “16.—Retirees partaking in a private pension scheme may postpone the purchase of an annuity for up to two years.”...More Button

Vanished. More Button

It is crazy.More Button

Will the Minister make arrangements to have that broadcast fairly widely? People are in fear and trepidation that what they have saved for is literally gone down the Swanee in terms of the money they...More Button

I am unsure if the Minister understands that the financial world as we knew it has changed. Tax-based capital schemes led his predecessor in office, the Taoiseach, Deputy Brian Cowen, to ruin in resp...More Button

It is a postponement, not a restriction.More Button

It is not an abolition.More Button

It is a postponement. The Minister’s note is wrong.More Button

The Minister’s note is wrong.More Button

The Minister’s note is wrong. He is misleading the Dáil.More Button

The Minister is misleading the Dáil.More Button

On a point of information——More Button

—— people are restricted for a year. They carry it forward as the officials ought to have written in the note. The Minister does not know his own provisions.More Button

It is wrong.More Button

They would be reorganised by now, not ruined.More Button

This is another example of lobbies that have the ear of the Minister for Finance, which gives rise to legislation that results in significant tax advantages to a select few. When the Minister’s prede...More Button

Will the Minister make it available to us?More Button

I ask the Minister about section 380R(6), which provides that the market value of the whole or part of establishment land means the price that whole or part might reasonably be expected to fetch on a ...More Button

What are the relevant dates? Can they be carried back to when the property market was at its height or are these values carried forward? It seems obvious that some of the competition issues discusse...More Button

I ask the Minister——More Button

Perhaps the Minister will set out his reply in full.More Button

What I want to learn from the Minister are the exact dates.More Button

I will make it easier for the Minister. What extent of backdating is included in this provision? How far back does it go in regard to acquisitions? Does it simply provide for future deals and, if s...More Button

Land involved in Seveso type activities may have changed hands several times or a canny developer may have passed it through several companies. It may well be that two years ago the value of this doc...More Button

I move amendment No. 36: In page 122, to delete lines 20 to 22.More Button

When the Minister sat down at the conclusion of his Budget Statement six weeks ago, the Fianna Fáil, Green Party and Progressive Democrats Members rose to give a standing ovation to a budget that unra...More Button

He assisted a great deal in that regard.More Button

That is correct.More Button
