  • PRINGLE WELCOMES DSP CONTRACT FOR AN POST – Thomas Pringle TD
    of Social Protection This is indeed very welcome news to the An Post network postmasters the 1 7 million customers who use Post Offices every week and indeed each and every community in Ireland where jobs are supported through this contract The value of the existing contract which is due to expire at the end of this year was worth approximately 58 million to An Post last year with the next one running for a further two years alongside a possible extension beyond that While An Post currently has preferred bidder status for winning the contract I m confident that the ensuing negotiations will result in a new contract that Postmasters and all who rely and trust in this invaluable service will be happy with I am aware of a concern amongst postmasters that further down the line when such payments by the department are transferred electronically that this will have a detrimental impact on the Post Office network However with the Standard Bank Account in the pipeline to be rolled out in Post Offices nationwide pending final approval I would be optimistic of the ability of Post Offices to adapt to these changes I have always been a strong advocate of maximising the potential of the Post Office network to provide a diverse range of services to consumers nationwide and I look forward to the finalisation of the contract between An Post and the department and their continued relationship in providing over the counter cash transactions long into the future stated Pringle Be Sociable Share Previous Story Donegal Democrat Pringle welcomes decision not to sell Coillte Next Story PRINGLE WELCOMES REPORT ON PROSTITUTON REFORM About admin Contact Info Killybegs Constituency Office Connolly House Bridge Street Killybegs Co Donegal 074 97 41880 thomas pringle oir ie Latest News Look out

  • PRINGLE WELCOMES DECISION NOT TO SELL COILLTE – Thomas Pringle TD
    Coillte After an analysis of the financial implications of the sale and consideration of the possible impact on the timber industry public access to recreational land and environmental and social impacts including job loss it was decided to sell Coillte These are things that many groups and individuals had been raising since day one and I have no doubt that these public outcries were taken into consideration The next step now is the much needed reform of Coillte with a possible merger with Bord na Móna to develop commercial bio energy and forestry interests and to fill the significant number of vacancies on the Coillte board with people who have relevant experience It is vital that these reforms begin as soon as possible and I will be calling on Minister Coveney to ensure that this happens However I am concerned by the government s statement that it will reconsider all options in relation to Coillte in 18 months time when the restructuring and merger with Bord na Mona is complete meaning a future sale is not off the cards I believe the Chair of the Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture of which I am a member has written to the Minister asking that the committee gets enough time in the autumn to discuss how the restructuring and merger should proceed and I will be making a point of raising my concerns in relation to a sale further down the line at this I certainly warmly welcome the decision not to sell Coillte and the recognition that reform is needed but it would be a massive loss to reform Coillte and after that to sell it off so I will certainly be keeping my eye on the ball in this regard stated Pringle Be Sociable Share Previous Story REDUCTION IN COMMERCIAL WATER

  • ‘REDUCTION IN COMMERCIAL WATER RATES UNLIKELY,’ PRINGLE – Thomas Pringle TD
    under Irish Water in view of the fact that the local authorities have been operating the polluter pays principle in relation to commercial water rates for many years and full cost recovery for the supply of water to commercial users There have been reports that there would be a reduction in commercial rates because domestic users have been getting water for free and commercial users have been paying for everyone but I don t believe that to be the case Local authorities operated for many years on a full cost recovery basis in the charging of commercial users and also operating in the polluter pays principle in setting water charges which means that the aspect to supply water to commercial users in local authority areas is fully paid for by those commercial users so it will have no bearing on the cost of providing water for domestic users or the charges in relation to that so I believe commercial users will not see a significant reduction The Minister stated that it will be a matter for the Commission for Energy Regulation to determine the appropriateness of costs incurred in the operation of Irish Water as part of the process of setting the tariffs for both the domestic and non domestic sector in the future so to say that the commercial sector will see a reduction is simply untrue As a centralised authority Irish Water could well create a set rate for all commercial users on a nationwide basis which may result in a slight reduction in some areas but in reality it is unlikely that the majority of commercial users will see any reduction in their water rates stated Pringle Be Sociable Share Previous Story PRINGLE WELCOMES POST OFFICE INCLUSION IN STANDARD BANK ACCOUNT Next Story PRINGLE WELCOMES DECISION NOT

  • PRINGLE WELCOMES POST OFFICE INCLUSION IN STANDARD BANK ACCOUNT – Thomas Pringle TD
    Standard Bank Account in three locations which took place from June to March last it has been rightly noted that the post office network has the potential to play a key role in the delivery of these accounts This pilot was part of the Strategy for Financial Inclusion in Ireland and after I submitted a question on the matter Minister Noonan informed me that a total of 205 accounts were opened during the Pilot which was below expectations However it was acknowledged that it is a generally accepted view that many of the financially excluded trust the post office network and that many of the financially excluded make use of An Post s services already When the Pilot commenced An Post was unable to offer transactional banking services on its own to its customers as it required arrangements with banking providers to do so But following the report from the Financial Inclusion Working Group FIWG on the Pilot it is understood that one of the initial conclusions is that the involvement of the post office network will be one of the key requirements This is very welcome for all post offices across the country as well as the many people who rely on and trust the post office network but may not be in the position or may not want to avail of a bank account with a financial institution This report on the Pilot is to be submitted to the Minister in the coming weeks and I will be working to ensure that the post office network is central to the rollout of the Standard Bank Account stated Pringle Be Sociable Share Previous Story PRINGLE WELCOMES SMALL CRAFT HARBOUR AT KILLYBEGS Next Story REDUCTION IN COMMERCIAL WATER RATES UNLIKELY PRINGLE About admin Contact Info Killybegs Constituency Office Connolly House

  • PRINGLE CALLS FOR MECHANISM TO LEAVE EUROZONE – Thomas Pringle TD
    as a nation and indeed whether we will be a nation afterwards or not The government is content to allow the debate in Europe to move on to treaty change and the development of a full banking union Most European commentators and politicians are calling for closer and closer integration despite the Taoiseach stating in the Dáil last June that we were not heading towards a federal Europe Yet we see the President of the European Commission José Manuel Barroso saying that a federal Europe will soon become a reality and has insisted that the fiscal union will lead to an intensified political union for all twenty seven member states And more recently French President François Hollande has called for a European Government to deal with the financial crisis with full powers to deal with all the issues involved in solving the crisis So are we really to believe the Taoiseach even when he gives a categorical answer There is an attitude amongst the European elite that we should not waste this crisis that the crisis should be used to push on with European integration and the creation of a European Super State I think it is appropriate at this time during our six month presidency of the European Union and the fortieth anniversary of our joining that we should evaluate where we are and where we are likely to go in the future and to go beyond the debate of how much Europe has been good for us to discussing how flaws in the Eurozone have been detrimental from an Irish perspective As has been observed by a prominent economist the drive for austerity was about using the crisis not solving it What is needed here is a constructive debate based on what is best for Ireland and solving
