Mayor welcomes progress in health and housing for Limerick families in…

first_img TAGSbudget 2019Limerick City and CountyNewspolitics Lminerick City and County Coumcil Mayoral Election in the Council Chambers in Dooradoyle.Newly elected Mayor of Limerick City and County James CollinsPicture: Keith WisemanMAYOR of Limerick, Cllr James Collins maintains that changes with regard to health and housing in Budget 2019, will make life somewhat easier for people living in Limerick.The Fianna Fáil General Election candidate for Limerick City also said that the Affordable Housing Scheme, worth €310 million over the next three years, will deliver over 6000 homes for working couples and families.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “This will make it easier for people to own their own home, and I am proud of the role that Fianna Fáil has played in delivering it. Our budget negotiators worked hard to deliver a fourfold increase in funding for affordable housing,” Cllr Collins enthused.“Additionally, the removal of a number of administrative hurdles will make it considerably easier for Limerick City and County Council to build council housing far quicker than at present. This is good news for the thousands of people on the council’s social housing waiting list.“In the area of health, the additional €20 million for the National Treatment Purchase Fund will ensure that those on waiting lists get their treatment or operation far quicker than at present. It was Fianna Fáil that secured the NTPF’s reestablishment following the decision of Fine Gael and Labour to mothball it in 2012.”Fianna Fáil’s Spokesperson on Social Protection, Willie O’Dea was equally enthused.He believes that following a third successive increase in all adult social welfare payments, “it’s clear that Fianna Fáil delivers on its word to support the less well-off and vulnerable”.“Fianna Fáil has never shied away from its commitment to support the less well-off. Over the past years, we have seen a €15 per week increase in these payments, and we make no apology for demanding these increases as a means of enabling families reliant on welfare payments keep pace with inflation,” said Deputy O’Dea.“Reversing the regressive nature of the last Fine Gael and Labour government was, and remains, a key priority for Fianna Fáil. It’s why we decided not to sit on our hands, and shout from the sidelines, like other political parties.“Despite these hard-fought gains, inequality in Irish society still persists; 50 per cent of lone parents are experiencing deprivation and 780,000 people live below the poverty line. The economic recovery has not reached every home and family in the country. People are still playing catch up from the savage cuts introduced by Fine Gael and Labour.“The 519,353 people who gave Fianna Fáil their vote in the 2016 General Election deserved a party that worked to deliver on its commitments. We recognised that reality and have delivered in terms of social welfare, education, health and housing,” the Limerick politician added.However, Sinn Féin TD for Limerick City, Maurice Quinlivan, was having none of it.He accused Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil of turning their backs on those in social and affordable housing need as the greatly anticipated Housing Budget “fails to materialise”.“Despite the hyped-up Fianna Fáil rhetoric that Budget 2019 would be a Housing Budget, the figures indicate that only a paltry additional €120m has been allocated for capital investment in housing for 2019 above existing commitments. This will only deliver just 490 additional new social homes on top of what was already committed to. The government real social housing target for 2019 is now only 7,900 and falls well short of what is needed,” Deputy Quinlivan declared.Sinn Féin’s Spokesperson on Business, Enterprise and Innovation also reacted to proposals put forward by Minister Heather Humphreys TD in Budget 2019 describing them as “unimaginative and very disappointing for businesses in Ireland”.“To put it frankly I was very disappointed and underwhelmed by the budget proposals for the Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation. I found the few proposals that were announced, unimaginative and disappointing for businesses. I don’t believe the Minister has taken account of the level of assistance businesses may require from our State agencies next year due to Brexit, allocating just €8 million in this area,” he concluded.Read more articles related to Budget 2019.

What happens when mobile banking exceeds branch banking?

first_img 10SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Credit union executives have a lot on their plates. Alongside the daily activities of keeping tabs on operations and budgets, overseeing personnel, and managing risk, there is one function that should not be ignored. An argument can be made that one of the most important roles is understanding how data and technology can, and should, drive decisions.This is not breaking news by any means. We know we live in a world that needs to connect with consumers at multiple levels.  A recent article from CUTimes quotes, “Mobile banking is a must-have. As it is presently defined, it is not a delighter and it does not help build the business, it helps support keeping the business.”The article goes on to highlight that financial institutions are beyond just purchasing mobile apps. They are setting up platforms to integrate their products with their members. continue reading »last_img read more

More than just a victory for military CUs

first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr The recent passage of the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) was not only a victory for CUs on military bases, many may not realize it has the potential to be a victory for all credit unions, asserts Tony Hernandez.As reported, the Senate version of the National Defense Authorization Act would have provided banks with the same type of free leases on military bases currently in place for many credit unions. But that language was cut when the final version of the NDAA was sent to the president for his signature. As also reported, passage of the bill came at the same time the banking lobby has been turning up the heat on credit unions and especially the industry’s federal tax exemption.Hernandez, CEO of the Defense Credit Union Council (DCUC), contends if that language had not been removed from the legislation, banks would have been given the same access to military bases as credit unions and would have gained a much stronger foothold from which to make their anti-CU arguments in 2020. continue reading »last_img read more

Canadian judge rules child born to polyamorous trio has three parents

first_imgLifeSite News 13 June 2018Family First Comment: As predicted, with Canada leading the way. This will set a precedent for NZ…“REAL Women’s vice president warned the decision legitimizes polyamorous relationships and paves the way for legislation to accommodate the parental recognition demands of polyamorous groupings.”www.ProtectMarriage.nzA Newfoundland judge has declared a polyamorous trio of one woman and two men all legal parents of the child the woman gave birth to last year. The decision appears to be the first of its kind in Canada.In ruling on the case of Re CC, Justice Robert Fowler of the Newfoundland and Labrador Supreme Court Family Division observed the child was born in 2017 as the result of a polyamorous relationship between two men and one woman he described as “stable and ongoing” since June 2015.“None of the partners in this relationship is married and, while the identity of the mother is clear, the biological father of the child is unknown,” wrote Fowler. The judge did not seem aware of the existence of paternity tests.The three adults went to court after the Newfoundland Ministry of Service refused to list them all as parents because the province’s Vital Statistics Act allows for the names of only two parents on a child’s birth certificate.Fowler ruled having three parents was in the child’s best interests.“To deny this child the dual paternal parentage would not be in his best interests. It must be remembered that this is about the best interests of the child and not the best interest of the parents,” he wrote.The child “has been born into what is believed to be a stable and loving family relationship which, although outside the traditional family model, provides a safe and nurturing environment,” Fowler opined.“I can find nothing to disparage that relationship from the best interests of the child’s point of view.”REAL Women vice president Gwen Landolt blasted the ruling as  “truly shocking.”READ MORE: read more
