Ceisteanna — Questions - Programmes for Government

Asked the minister: if he will set out the elements of the programme for Government for which he and his Department are directly responsible; and if he will make a statement on the matter. More Button

Tá mé an-sásta an Taoiseach a fheiceáil anseo arís. Bhí cuairt mhaith againn go dtí na Stáit Aontaithe.More Button

Tá a lán fadhbanna anseo; mar shampla, tuairisc Moriarty. Níl mé sásta leis an bhfreagra a thug an Taoiseach maidir le clár an Rialtais. He never mentioned jobs once, yet during the election campaig...More Button

I do not want to mention the five point plan but the Taoiseach referred to what he has described as a “jobs fund” in his reply. Some of the funding for this is to be drawn down from the National Pens...More Button

I very much welcome that.More Button

Ceisteanna — Questions - EU Summits

Asked the minister: if he will report on his participation in the EU summit on 11 March 2011; and if he will make a statement on the matter. More Button

Asked the minister: his priorities for the next European Council meeting More Button

I wish the Taoiseach well at the next European Council meeting, but I note with disappointment that at the last session he restated his commitment to the EU-IMF deal and to the austerity package. In ...More Button

That is a given.More Button

That is not what he said.More Button

The Taoiseach said we need to live up to our responsibilities in terms of our European partners, and I do not detract from that. However, our first responsibilities are to our own citizens. The Taoi...More Button

The Taoiseach must make it clear to them, to quote the Minister for Finance, that this is not sustainable. Why would the Taoiseach follow through on what he already says is a bad deal for Europe and ...More Button

Ceisteanna — Questions - Programmes for Government

Asked the minister: the constitutional referenda he plans to hold in the next 12 months; and if he will make a statement on the matter. More Button

Go raibh maith agat. Has the Taoiseach made provision for citizens from the Six Counties to be involved in the constitutional convention? If not, I ask him to do so and to consult with parties in th...More Button

Which referendum? The first or the second?More Button

Leaders’ Questions

Nuair a bhíomar ag caint agus ag magadh níos luaithe, dúirt mé leis an Taoiseach go raibh a lán fadhbanna romhainn, mar shampla, tuairisc Moriarty. Tá seans ann go mbeidh an Taoiseach ag labhairt fao...More Button

Obviously, Fine Gael knew there was something inappropriate about this transaction and therefore what did it do at the time about it? Has Fine Gael received any other money from Denis O’Brien or any ...More Button

It took €150 million and 13 or 14 years to produce this report. The Taoiseach spoke earlier about the gap between government and citizens and between the political class and the people. This report ...More Button

Order of Business

We still have not had any sense of when committees will be established and when legislation the Government has promised will be brought forward——More Button

I have a question on the same matter. I do not want to take issue with the Ceann Comhairle but I was about to make this point when he ruled me out of order earlier.More Button

Go raibh maith agat, a Cheann Comhairle.More Button

The point I wished to make is that while I appreciate that the Taoiseach will be attending the European summit, there must be an urgent debate on this issue. I hope Deputy Martin will be as eager in ...More Button

I am sure the Taoiseach was sincere in his remarks about narrowing the gap between the people and the Government. The findings of this report will be seen by citizens as a confirmation of their view ...More Button
