Dublin: Ireland’s housing crisis is on the turning point, and the government’s recent measures will be positive, Prime Minister Leo Varadkar has said, completely dismissing the problems caused by the lifting of the eviction moratorium.
According to the prime minister, house prices will most likely fall. This will result in significant changes in the housing crisis. Leo Varadkar said that the government’s new measures will definitely have an impact on the housing shortage.
Mr. Varadkar said he was very concerned that if a Sinn Féin or left-wing government came to power, the current government’s support for first-time home buyers would be withdrawn.
Varadkar also said that about half of the termination notices given to tenants will be voided. Homes will not be left empty for long as first-time buyers and overseas returnees move in, he predicts. The majority of people who receive eviction notices will find alternative accommodations, Varadkar said.
A large budget and a strong political will.
According to the Prime Minister, this large budget demonstrates that there is no lack of political will on the issue of housing. In the last two years, more than one billion euros have been spent on the housing department. Varadkar said this is a record.
It is ensured that the amount allocated in the budget is fully spent. Varadkar stated that the necessary changes have been made in order to spend the money from one year to the next.
More multinational corporations should arrive.
Varadkar stated that, while the presence of large multinational corporations in Ireland is beneficial, it is a failure when it comes to corporation tax. According to the Prime Minister, it is critical to attract more multinational corporations here.
Sinn Fein says increasing homelessness is to the government’s advantage.
Sinn Féin leader Mary Lou McDonald responded that the only benefit of this policy and the government was that thousands of people were left homeless. She accused the government of lifting the eviction moratorium while doing nothing to help homeless families and worsening the housing crisis.
McDonald said a Sinn Féin government would fix the danger to an entire generation. She added that the record of failure created by Leo Varadkar is now visible.
