Repair and Lease Scheme - National Vaccination Programme -
These are the items I brought up at todays Order of Business
1. The repair and leasing scheme is a good initiative however since 2017 only 234 houses have been delivered under this scheme nationally. This is a paltry figure. I think the funding is insufficient and inadequate to stimulate demand. Repair costs are much more than that and this scheme is a reflection of the poor housing policies put forward by Fianna Fail and Fine Gael.
2. The national vaccination programme has excluded pharmacists in the programme who have experience, training and capacity to administer over 50k vaccines a week and help to hit the vaccine targets for June. Why are they not included?
3. Review of reproductive health and abortion - no data is currently being recorded. We need to have a discussion about this and show compassion for the unborn and support pain relief for the unborn.
