Oireachtas Jobs Committee Chair, Mary Butler TD to bring her committee to Waterford

South East’s stubbornly high unemployment rate must be addressed Fianna Fáil TD, and Chair of the Oireachtas Committee on Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Mary Butler has said that the planned meeting of her committee in Waterford City will help shine a spotlight on the stubborn levels of unemployment in South East region.

Deputy Butler was commenting after she announced that the committee will sit in plenary session in the chamber of Waterford City and County Council on Tuesday, 14th November to discuss the South East Action Plan on Jobs.

"The South East, according to the 2017 Quarter 2, Quarterly National Household Survey, has an unemployment rate of 8.1% compared to the national average of 6.4%, and I am bringing the committee down to Waterford to let them hear from local people and business leaders on how they think this issue of stubborn unemployment can be addressed.

"This is the first time this Committee has decided to sit outside of Dublin. Since becoming Chair of the Committee I have been anxious that the challenges of doing business outside of Dublin and the need to support investment in the regions are given the attention they deserve.

"With the continuing delay in delivering a university for the South East, it’s essential that those of us sitting on this Oireachtas Committee focus on the issues that we can address in the region.

"An unemployment rate that is a full 33% higher than the national average is not acceptable. The Government’s Action Plan on Jobs might be working in Dublin, but it sure isn’t in the South East.

"All members of the Oireachtas from the South East have been invited to attend. It’s vitally important that all of us who care about Waterford’s and the South East’s futures work together to deliver for our region, and I really do believe that this meeting can play an important role in achieving success for our communities," concluded Butler.

    Paradise papersOne of the most surprising things about the release of the copious amounts of tax details of some of the richest people on the planet wasn't the names of the people involved but the fact that three of them were actors from Mrs. Brown's Boys. Between them the three had accounts nearing 2 million euros in off-shore accounts and let's face it, these people aren't exactly Robert De Niros or Meryl Streeps but three bog standard, and that's putting it mildly, actors, from a middling comedy serie …
