Vote 32 - Business, Enterprise and Innovation (Revised)
That a sum not exceeding €1,401,200,000 be granted to defray the charge which will come in course of payment during the year ending on the 31st day of December, 2020, for the salaries and expenses of...

30/06/2020 [Estimates for Public Services 2020] I thank the Tánaiste, and we wish him success in his new role. The next slot is with Fianna Fáil, which has 15 minutes. Have we Fianna Fáil Deputies offering? No. The Sinn Féin Party is next, then. It has 15 minutes. I call Deputies Munster and Ó Broin.[An ...Vol-994 Book-4
30/06/2020 [Estimates for Public Services 2020] I hope the absence of any Fianna Fáil representative to speak on behalf of SMEs is not a sign.
I welcome the opportunity to contribute on the Revised Estimates, which Sinn Féin will support. We are in a situation where entire sectors of the economy are at risk...

30/06/2020 [Estimates for Public Services 2020] Is the Tánaiste in a position to respond to some of Deputy Munster's questions?[An Ceann Comhairle]Vol-994 Book-4
30/06/2020 [Estimates for Public Services 2020] I seek clarification. There has been a bit of confusion about speaking slots. Do I still have an opportunity to speak?[Collins, Niall]Vol-994 Book-4
30/06/2020 [Estimates for Public Services 2020] Yes, we will accommodate Deputy Collins in a minute but we will let the Tánaiste respond to Deputy Munster's questions.[An Ceann Comhairle]Vol-994 Book-4
30/06/2020 [Estimates for Public Services 2020] I will respond to as many of the Deputy's questions as I can now and perhaps revert to her other queries by correspondence. I am two days in the job and I am not across everything just yet but I promise I will get there very soon.
With regard to the supports t...

30/06/2020 [Estimates for Public Services 2020] If the Deputy wants to go over the details of the restart grant, which have been provided to her, 34,000 businesses have claimed it so far but only €61 million has been drawn down. This Estimate, if passed today, will provide €250 million. That still leaves the...Vol-994 Book-4
30/06/2020 [Estimates for Public Services 2020] My question is on the restart grants and on those who have been excluded from applying for some for arbitrary reasons. Will the Tánaiste extend the restart grants application process to those many small businesses that have been excluded from it and have no supp...Vol-994 Book-4
30/06/2020 [Estimates for Public Services 2020] The Deputy has made her point. We will hear the Tánaiste's response. He indicated that he would correspond with the Deputy on this.[An Ceann Comhairle]Vol-994 Book-4
30/06/2020 [Estimates for Public Services 2020] I am afraid I do not know what the Deputy means by "arbitrary" in this context. The way the restart grant works is that a business has its rates refunded. If a business did not pay rates, then it is not arbitrary for that business to not get a rates rebate. It...Vol-994 Book-4
30/06/2020 [Estimates for Public Services 2020] The Tánaiste will correspond with Deputy Munster on the other questions. We will go back to Fianna Fáil and Deputy Niall Collins.[An Ceann Comhairle]Vol-994 Book-4
30/06/2020 [Estimates for Public Services 2020] I apologise for the confusion earlier and I thank the Ceann Comhairle for his indulgence.

30/06/2020 [Estimates for Public Services 2020] Do I have to share time?[Collins, Niall]Vol-994 Book-4
30/06/2020 [Estimates for Public Services 2020] You are supposed to make your own arrangements. It is not my job to arrange the slots for you but in the circumstances I take it that you are sharing time.[An Ceann Comhairle]Vol-994 Book-4
30/06/2020 [Estimates for Public Services 2020] I will take about five minutes and then I will pass over to my colleague, Deputy Troy, if that is in order.
I echo the point that the business sector is very worried and the July stimulus will have to have a real and meaningful impact to allow the business se...

30/06/2020 [Estimates for Public Services 2020] I thank the Deputy for her contribution. I may be able to answer a few of her points but I will have to come back to her on others.

30/06/2020 [Estimates for Public Services 2020] Just a brief response. I thank the Deputy for his contribution and his support for the Revised Estimates. He made a point that I agree with absolutely, namely, that what is being done today is not enough. He is right. These are Revised Estimates to allow us t...Vol-994 Book-4
