Snippet Contents:

Deputy Danny Healy-Rae mentioned the programme for Government. The Government is committed to this and the programme for Government is the template. In every Department there are regular reviews of priorities and commitments under the programme for Government and proposals regarding credit unions or the Kiwi banking proposals are being pursued under that programme. Deputy Michael Healy-Rae asked a range of questions which I am not able to answer now but I will send the answers to him. Deputies Pringle and Joan Collins mentioned the increases to wage costs. The figures provided by An Post indicates that a 1% increase equates to €4.5 million. Deputy Collins referred to the conflict involved in ensuring there is money to pay An Post workers going forward while at the same time considering the impact that postal increases can have on consumers.
Deputies Fitzpatrick and Durkan commented on a number of opportunities for savings and Deputies Nolan, Cullinane and Martin Kenny spoke of an attack on rural Ireland. All of us, including every rural Deputy, wants to ensure that An Post survives in both rural and urban Ireland and this emergency legislation ensures there is enough funding to keep it going.
A number of Deputies referred to the impact of closures and Deputy Casey mentioned Laragh post office. Some 288 post offices closed between 2005 and 2010 and there have been a number of closures since. It is regrettable whenever any post office changes and there will be an opportunity for that particular post office to undertake a review.
I thank all Deputies for a very good debate last night, which shows the importance of our postal services and our postal network. All Deputies support it and nobody wants An Post to go to the wall. There are opportunities, particularly in the parcel service, for a better and brighter future for An Post, notwithstanding the decline in mail volumes. I ask Members to support this emergency legislation to ensure An Post survives into the future. I will pass on to the Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment, Deputy Denis Naughten, the goodwill messages of Members yesterday.
