Sports Capital Programme

Questions (582)

Darragh O'Brien

Question:

582. Deputy Darragh O'Brien asked the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport when the 2019 capital sports grants scheme will be published to enable sports and community groups and associations to apply for much needed funding; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [21841/19]

Written answers (Question to Transport)

The 2018 round of the Sports Capital Programme closed for applications on Friday 19th October last.  By that deadline, a record 2,337 applications were submitted seeking a total of €162m in funding. 

186 of these applications were for projects that were deemed invalid under the 2017 round of the programme that subsequently submitted corrected documents.  These applications were assessed first and approximately €7m in allocations to 170 projects were announced on the 17th January. 

619 "Equipment Only" applications were assessed next and 466 allocations with a value of €9.8m were announced earlier this week.

Work is now underway in assessing the remaining applications for capital works. 

For the first time applicants who submitted incorrect documentation under this round are being given the opportunity to correct their application during the assessment period. While there will be no undue delay in completing the assessment process, in view of the opportunity to correct documentation, the record number of applications received and the detailed information contained in each application, it is likely to take a number of months to have all applications assessed. Accordingly, I expect that it may be the third quarter of this year before the full set of allocations under this current round of the programme are announced. 

As soon as allocations have been made, my Department will carry out a review of all aspects of the 2018 round of the programme to include any possible improvements for the future. This review will include consideration of the timing and scale of the next round but I fully expect that the SCP will again be open for new applications before the end of this year.

Air Services Provision

Questions (583)

Noel Rock

Question:

583. Deputy Noel Rock asked the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport if his attention has been drawn to or if he has had discussions in relation to introducing direct flights between Ireland and Brazil in the future; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [21882/19]

View answer

Written answers (Question to Transport)

Developing air links with new emerging markets is a key policy objective for my Department, as outlined in the National Aviation Policy.

While Ireland does not currently have an Air Services Agreement with Brazil, in the event that an EU or Brazilian carrier was to express an interest in introducing direct flights between Ireland and Brazil, my Department would work with its Brazilian counterparts to facilitate such a service.

Ultimately, the decision to operate a specific air route is an operational matter for air carriers and is generally based on the commercial viability of the route in question.

Motor Tax

Questions (584)

Pearse Doherty

Question:

584. Deputy Pearse Doherty asked the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport the estimated cost of abolishing a charge (details supplied). [21957/19]

View answer

Written answers (Question to Transport)

Motor tax is payable on an annual, half-yearly or quarterly basis. Motor tax taken out on a half-yearly and quarterly basis is charged at 55.5% and 28.25% of the annual rate respectively.

Based on the volume of transactions in 2018, the estimated annual cost to the Exchequer of setting the half-yearly and quarterly rates at 50% and 25% of the annual rate respectively is €48.4m.   This does not take account of the likely cost of additional administration arising from the likelihood that more users may opt to tax their vehicles for short periods and therefore require more frequent renewals.

[22036/19]

View answer

Written answers (Question to Transport)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 587 and 588 together.

The safety and security of public transport passengers and staff, including arrangements to deal with anti-social behaviour, are important matters that, first and foremost, must be managed by every public transport company, in conjunction with An Garda Síochána where appropriate.

While the vast majority of public transport passenger journeys occur without incident, I am concerned to ensure that the necessary arrangements are in place to ensure the safety of all passengers and staff travelling and working on our bus and rail networks. 

Following representations from the National Bus and Rail Union seeking the establishment of a dedicated police force for public transport, my Department wrote to Iarnród Éireann, Bus Éireann and Dublin Bus to seek their views on the issue of anti-social behaviour and ensuring the safety of both passengers and staff.  All companies stressed the strong and close working relationships with An Garda Síochána.   

I also wrote to Minister for Justice to get his views on how we can address the issue of anti-social behaviour on our public transport system.  I understand that Minister Flanagan is liaising with An Garda Síochána on the matter.

The allocation of all Garda resources, including the manner in which Garda personnel are deployed, is solely a decision for the Garda Commissioner and his management team.

I understand that An Garda Síochána has also met with the Railway Safety Advisory Council (RSAC) in relation to the issue of anti-social behaviour on our public transport network and that further engagement and initiatives are planned.

Irish Rail has also advised that it has undertaken a range of measures and proposes further measures to address anti-social behaviour on the rail network including increased security personnel, the introduction of Customer Service Officers on all Intercity routes and enhanced CCTV coverage.  A new text alert service will also be introduced in the coming weeks to enable customers to discretely report anti-social behaviour incidents and allow security personnel and/or Gardaí to be alerted and dispatched as required to an incident.

The regulation of the small public service vehicle (SPSV) sector is a matter for the National Transport Authority (NTA) under the provisions of the Taxi Regulation Act 2013.  Also, under this Act, An Garda Síochána (AGS) is responsible for the granting of SPSV driver licences which includes the administration of the associated Garda vetting process.

In this respect, decisions regarding the detail as to how these procedures are administered are matters for the NTA and An Garda Síochána.  As  the NTA is a Body operating under my aegis, I am referring this question to them for direct reply.  Please inform my private office if you have not received an answer within 10 working days.

Motor Insurance Costs

Questions (591)

Maureen O'Sullivan

Question:

591. Deputy Maureen O'Sullivan asked the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport his views on the cost of car insurance particularly for persons that operate taxis; his further views on whether the recommendations from the working group are not having the desired effect on premiums resulting in persons leaving the industry; and the way in which he can assist drivers while recognising that insurance premiums are a commercial matter. [22039/19]

View answer

Written answers (Question to Transport)

The increase in premium costs of motor insurance for all drivers in recent years is certainly cause for concern. It is clear that this, particularly in the couple of years up to 2016, has also affected those working within the Small Public Service Vehicle (SPSV) industry. However, the most recent Consumer Price Index showed that the average cost of motor insurance actually fell by more than 24% between its peak in July 2016 and April 2019.

Insurance companies are private companies. Neither the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport nor the Central Bank of Ireland has the power to direct insurance companies on the pricing of insurance products. This position is reinforced by the EU framework for insurance which expressly prohibits Member States from adopting rules which require insurance companies to obtain prior approval of the pricing or terms and conditions of insurance products. The provision of insurance cover and the price at which it is offered are commercial matters for insurance companies and are based on an assessment of the risks they are willing to accept and adequate provisioning to meet those risks. These are considered by insurance companies on a case by case basis.

The Department of Finance Working Group’s Report on the Cost of Motor Insurance was published in January 2017 and quarterly updates have been published since then to date. Based on recommendations from this report, the Advisory Committee on SPSVs met with Insurance Ireland on 22 May 2017 to discuss cost of insurance issues relating to the taxi industry and a report on the same was issued to the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport on 21 June 2017. This report was forwarded to the aforementioned Working Group, which is already pursuing many of the recommendations arising from the meeting, including the need for further engagement to take place between the Advisory Committee on SPSVs and Insurance Ireland. I requested that a further meeting take place but to date this has not occurred.

It is my hope that this cooperation and engagement will deliver better rates for all motorists, including taxi drivers.

Swimming Pool Programme

Questions (592)

Brendan Ryan

Question:

592. Deputy Brendan Ryan asked the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport if he has received an application for funding from Kildare County Council for the provision of a swimming pool at Maynooth, County Kildare; if the application is deemed acceptable; when a decision will be made; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [22042/19]

View answer

Written answers (Question to Transport)

The Large Scale Sport Infrastructure Fund opened for applications on 19th November 2018 and the closing date for receipt of applications was 17th April 2019.

72 applications were received in total and my officials are currently undertaking an initial assessment of them. Details of all applications have been published on the Department's website.

I can confirm that an application has been received from Kildare County Council for funding for development of a swimming pool and multi-use facility in Maynooth. The application has been accepted and will be subject to assessment along with the  other applications received.

In view of the detailed information contained in each application, I am advised that it will take a number of months to have all of them assessed.  Accordingly, I expect that it will be towards the end of this year before allocations are announced.

Community Involvement Scheme

Questions (595)

Eamon Scanlon

Question:

595. Deputy Eamon Scanlon asked the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport if consideration will be given to reducing the financial contribution in respect of the community involvement scheme from 15% to 5% or 10 % as per the local improvement scheme making it more palatable to the general public and allow longer roads to be upgraded at reasonable cost; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [22071/19]

View answer

Written answers (Question to Transport)

Firstly I would like to explain that the maintenance of regional and local roads (RLR) is the statutory responsibility of each local authority, in accordance with the provisions of Section 13 of the Roads Act 1993. Works on those roads are funded from local authorities' own resources supplemented by State road grants.  The initial selection and prioritisation of works to be funded  is also a matter for the local authority. 

As regards the Community Involvement Scheme (CIS), the Department introduced ring fenced monies for CIS as part of a pilot programme over the years 2013 to 2014. Due to overall road funding cuts it was not possible to provide ring fenced funding for CIS in the period 2015 to 2017. However in 2018 ring fenced funding was again introduced and funding of €15.3m has been allocated to local authorities in 2019 for CIS.

The CIS is based on community contributions within the range of 15% to 30% and the purpose of the CIS is to facilitate local community participation in the repair of local roads. The focus of the programme is on the repair of more lightly trafficked public roads which would not be high on a local authority's list of Restoration Improvement work schemes and where there is no short term prospect of undertaking repair works under that programme. 

The renewed CIS programme for 2018/2019 took account of the earlier pilot study and put in place a reasonable mix in terms of public funding and community contribution (either by way of monetary contribution or through the carrying out of works). The scheme worked very well in 2018 and my Department has no plans to change the conditions of the scheme or the community contributions associated with the scheme.   It should be noted that an increase in the contribution funded from the public purse would mean that less communities would benefit from the scheme overall, as each road would require a larger share of the overall provision.

My Department has recently invited local authorities to submit applications for CIS for a further two year programme in the period 2020/2021. The terms and conditions of this further funding programme are the same as the existing CIS programme.

597. Deputy John Curran asked the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport the funding drawn down by each Dublin local authority under the roads restoration improvement grant in 2018 and to date in 2019; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [22116/19]

View answer

Written answers (Question to Transport)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 596 and 597 together.

Firstly I would like to explain that the improvement and maintenance of regional and local roads (RLR) is the statutory responsibility of each local authority, in accordance with the provisions of Section 13 of the Roads Act 1993. Works on those roads are funded from local authorities' own resources supplemented as appropriate by State road grants.  The initial selection and prioritisation of works to be funded is also a matter for the local authority.

Arising from the arrangements in place in relation to Local Property Tax receipts the four Dublin Councils became self funding for regional and local roads under the main road grant categories from 2015.  Accordingly they no longer receive allocations under the Restoration Improvement grant programme. Provision was made in the Capital Plan for the upgrade of roads in the vicinity of Grange Castle Business Park and the Department is providing grant assistance for that strategic scheme at present.

Details of the regional and local road grant allocations and payments to local authorities for 2018 and allocations for 2019 are outlined in the regional and local road grant payment and allocation booklets which are available in the Dáil Library.

My Department does not currently collect information relating to children who are not registered

for supports under a DCYA programme. However, the estimated number of children expected to enrol on the ECCE Programme for 2019/20 may be of relevance in this context. These estimates are derived using a number of data sources, including population data provided by the CSO and data on school starting age from the Pupil Online Database held by the Department of Education and Skills. It also reflects consistent trends in uptake of the ECCE Programme, which is in the region of 95% of the eligible cohort. It excludes children within the eligible cohort who may choose to enrol on other DCYA funded programmes.

Drawing on previous analysis from the Forward Planning Unit in the Department of Education and Skills on the estimated number of children in each Local Authority that are within the eligible age range for the ECCE programme, the estimated number of children enrolling in ECCE for the 2019/20 programme year in each Local Authority is provided below.

Anne Rabbitte

Question:

599. Deputy Anne Rabbitte asked the Minister for Children and Youth Affairs the amount of funding provided to each community childcare committee by county in each of the past five years in tabular form. [21544/19]

View answer

Written answers (Question to Children)

Some 33 City and County Childcare Committees (CCCs) were established in 2001 to advance the provision of childcare facilities in their local areas. They comprise local representatives from the statutory, community and voluntary sectors, childcare providers and parents. There are now 30 CCCs, as Limerick City and Limerick County CCCs have amalgamated, as have Waterford City and Waterford County and North and South Tipperary. Each committee has a distinct legal identity and board of directors.

The CCCs support the delivery of the childcare programmes operated by my Department. They also perform a range of activities to promote the Access and Inclusion Model (AIM) including providing information and support for parents and ECCE settings. They are also responsible for rolling out the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) training programme to pre-school practitioners nationwide. They provide support and guidance to local service providers and parents in relation to the childcare programmes and support quality in keeping with national frameworks and policy objectives. CCCs are also available to co-ordinate and provide training to providers and offer support to families with regard to Early Years services within their respective catchment areas.

The information requested by the Deputy is outlined in the tables below. These tables outline the core funding allocated annually to each CCC from 2015 to 2019, as well as funding provided in respect of AIM and EDI, and in 2019 funding in support of nationwide training in preparation for the forthcoming National Childcare Scheme . My Department also provides additional annual funding to the CCCs to support a number of initiatives including the administration of the Childminding Development Grant, the Parent and Toddler Initiative, Learning Funding, and funding to support the work of the National Early Years Children First Committee.
