Debate On Housing Solutions Should Receive As Much Media Attention As No Confidence Drama

People Before Profit TD says Dáil debate on housing solutions should receive as much media attention as No Confidence drama

Grass-roots housing protest in Dublin today demands urgent solutions to housing and homeless crisis


In a statement, Richard Boyd Barrett TD for People Before Profit said the Dáil debate on housing solutions should receive as much media attention as the Dáil no confidence debate in the housing minister earlier this week.

As a member of the business committee Deputy Boyd Barrett specifically requested a debate on “housing solutions” a number of weeks ago, to take place on the same day as todays housing protest in Dublin city centre. The protest which will assemble at 12pm at the garden of remembrance will proceed to government buildings in advance of today’s debate.

Deputies Richard Boyd Barret and Paul Murphy have been asked by the march organisers to accept a submission from housing activists on solutions to the housing and homeless crisis.

Deputy Richard Boyd Barrett said:

“There was, understandably, a lot of attention given to the no-confidence motion in minister murphy earlier this week. What housing activists and those affected by the crisis actually want are solutions.

“The government often dishonestly claim the opposition only criticise government failures but do not put forward positive alternative solutions. This was never true, but today at the protest of housing and homeless volunteers, we felt it was critical that the Dáil discussed practical and sensible solutions to the housing and homelessness crisis.

“I sincerely hope that this debate will receive as much attention as the political blood-sport of a no-confidence motion. The people affected by the misery of the housing and homeless crisis deserve nothing less.”
