  • PRINGLE LAUNCHES BUDGET PROPOSAL WITH INDEPENDENTS – Thomas Pringle TD
    and Progressive Approach with five other independent TDs ahead of next week s Budget 2014 Myself Catherine Murphy John Halligan Patrick Nulty and Tommy Broughan have come together as public representatives to endorse three principles for a fair and progressive budget Irish politics and more importantly Irish people need practical alternatives to the path the current government has been taking and we have sought to provide that alternative This budget proposal is based on fair taxation preserving primary spending and addressing the investment crisis by targeting the critical sectors of education communications and energy and water infrastructure I believe the introduction of a wealth tax a four year jobs stimulus programme and no cuts in public spending would go some way in putting Ireland back on the road to recovery All of this comes to a saving of 2 billion Minister Noonan stated in reply to a recent parliamentary question that to make no budget adjustments in 2014 would reduce the General Government Deficit to 5 8 we only need a budget that will achieve a deficit reduction of 0 7 to meet the Troika targets and ensure our exit from the bailout programme I believe this shows that we need to declare an end to austerity and allow citizens the respite and confidence to participate in our economy and society stated Pringle See pre budget submission here http issuu com thomaspringletd docs budgetdocument 6 final Be Sociable Share Previous Story CLARITY NEEDED ON SNA ALLOCATION Next Story BUDGET MAKES SAVAGE CUTS ON YOUNG AND OLD 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 for my General Election 2016 newsletter February 11 2016 12 59 pm DONEGAL NOW Donegal TD reveals Minister Lynch

  • CLARITY NEEDED ON SNA ALLOCATION – Thomas Pringle TD
    been received or approved for SNA support since the deadline last month and has called for urgent action on the matter Minister Quinn provided me yesterday with two different answers to the same question regarding the number of additional SNAs applications that have been received or approved since the deadline of September 20 th for the current school year It s simply unacceptable that nearly three weeks after the deadline for applications that the Minister cannot provide this information Many families are in limbo and do not know what supports will be available to them and will have to wait for the outcome of these applications before they know their situation so it is important that decisions on these applications are made as quickly as possible We know that there has been an increase in the demand for SNAs so it is vital that we assess the impact of the cap on this resource for this school year as soon as possible I have heard of children being told they have access to an SNA and while this may mean that there s a special needs assistant in the school it does not mean he or she has a specific role to play in respect of the children in question I have asked the Minister to provide me with the relevant figures as soon as possible this issue needs to be addressed to ensure all of the children in a school benefit educationally stated Pringle Be Sociable Share Previous Story CWO CLINICS MUST BE ACCESSIBLE FOR ALL Next Story PRINGLE LAUNCHES BUDGET PROPOSAL WITH INDEPENDENTS 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 for my General Election 2016 newsletter February 11 2016 12

  • CWO CLINICS MUST BE ACCESSIBLE FOR ALL – Thomas Pringle TD
    the service fails the people who need it As of this week people are being asked to make their way to larger towns to avail of community welfare services This does not recognise the geography of rural Ireland and the difficulties many of the clients of the Department of Social Protection face in accessing services The 12 clinics are in outlying areas where there is no transport link to get people to larger towns to access the clinics These are some of the most vulnerable people in society and through their need to access services they must have a lot of contact with community welfare officers for vital services such as the exceptional needs payment or Supplementary Welfare Allowance The letter issued in Donegal states that these closures are due to the rollout of the Intreo programme a one stop shop for employment services However I fail to see what the community welfare offices will bring to the rollout of the Intreo service when they need to be kept in place to provide the services which are vital to those using them One of the clinics closing is in Pettigo and an offer has been made to clients to use the clinic either in Ballyshannon or in Donegal town There is one bus service a week to Donegal town from Pettigo and there is none to Ballyshannon While there may be a telephone service available it will be interesting to see how that will work where there are application forms to be filled out or paperwork to be sent in to the community welfare officer for a decision So I ll be keeping a close eye on how the situation progresses stated Pringle Be Sociable Share Previous Story PRINGLE WELCOMES RECOMMENDATIONS ON SELF EMPLOYED Next Story CLARITY NEEDED ON SNA

  • PRINGLE WELCOMES RECOMMENDATIONS ON SELF-EMPLOYED – Thomas Pringle TD
    EMPLOYED By admin Tweet Pin It Updated 6th September 2013 Thomas Pringle TD has today welcomed the recommendations in an expert report to extend the benefits payable to self employed persons It s essential that self employed people have greater access to the welfare system and this is something I have been calling on for some time Extending the eligibility of long term illness and disability benefits to the self employed is a positive step in that direction The recommendations by the Advisory Group on Tax and Social Welfare recognise that the self employed have been treated unfairly by our welfare system but I m disappointed that this hasn t been extended to Jobseekers Benefit and to that end I am calling on Minister Burton to consider this option also Self employed people have suffered the consequences of this recession like anyone else and I would ask that the proposal to increase PRSI for self employed persons for greater access to the welfare system includes access to Jobseekers Benefit Minister Burton has been dragging her heels on this issue for some time and while I recognise the importance of this development the biggest issue that faces self employed people today is unemployment and this needs to be addressed more adequately stated Pringle Be Sociable Share Previous Story AGGRESSIVE BEHAVIOUR OVER PAPERLESS BILLIING NOT ACCEPTABLE Next Story CWO CLINICS MUST BE ACCESSIBLE FOR ALL 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 for my General Election 2016 newsletter February 11 2016 12 59 pm DONEGAL NOW Donegal TD reveals Minister Lynch will not meet with Save Our St Joseph s Campaign February 11 2016 11 24 am DONEGAL NOW Calls on Burton to provide

  • PRINGLE RAISES CONCERNS ON JOB CREATION CLAIM – Thomas Pringle TD
    Thomas Pringle TD has today raised concerns regarding the claim that 32 new jobs will be created in Donegal Town as part of the announcement that an Irish Water regional office is to be located there Earlier this week the locations of Irish Water region offices were announced including Donegal Town which are to support the provision of water and wastewater services with between 18 32 employees being based in each of these offices While I most certainly welcome that one of the regional offices will be based in Donegal Town Minister McGinley s assertion that 32 new jobs will be created is simply untrue The government statement on the matter acknowledges that these employees will be based in each of these offices drawn from the local authorities the Department of the Environment Community and Local Government DECLG Bord Gáis with some going through open recruitment meaning job creation will be at a minimum Again I want to make clear that I do welcome the announcement that Donegal Town is to be the location for a regional office for Irish Water but the assertion that s been made on job impact is inaccurate and such statements should be avoided so as not to cause disappointment I would be delighted if 32 new jobs were created but this is simply not the case stated Pringle Be Sociable Share Previous Story PRINGLE WELCOMES GROUP B SEWERAGE SCHEME GOING TO TENDER Next Story SUSI DEADLINE THIS THURSDAY 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 for my General Election 2016 newsletter February 11 2016 12 59 pm DONEGAL NOW Donegal TD reveals Minister Lynch will not meet with Save Our St Joseph s Campaign February 11
