Motion (resumed) (1hr. 30 m. remaining):

 

33. "That Dáil Éireann:

— deploring the continuing assault on disadvantaged communities represented by the economic policy of the Government, which has starved communities of essential resources and led to increased poverty and deprivation and a widening of the gap between rich and poor in both rural and urban Ireland;

— believing that many of these communities continue to suffer as a result of inadequate policing, unequal educational opportunities, and unemployment levels well above the national average;

— commending the efforts of many individuals and voluntary organisations to improve the opportunities and living conditions of their communities;

— condemns in particular:

— the decision of the Government to cut a further 5,000 community employment places by the end of this year;

— the total failure of the Government to fast-track the €1.9bn funding for these communities promised when the Taoiseach, Deputy Ahern, personally launched the RAPID programme in February, 2001;

— the failure to provide the promised second round of funding under the Young People’s Facilities and Services Fund;

— the failure to provide the Education Welfare Board with adequate resources to ensure that it can function fully and the failure to implement the promised action plan on school attendance and early school leaving for each area covered by the RAPID programme;

— the cuts imposed in the budgets of the Area Partnerships; and

— the reduction in funding for community development programmes;

— calls on the Government to:

— restore community employment places to the numbers operational at the beginning of 2002;

— honour the commitment made to fast-track the promised funding over the RAPID programme;

— ensure that adequate resources and strategies are put in place for the proper policing of disadvantaged communities; and

— allocate sufficient resources to ensure that the health, educational and social services available to people living in disadvantaged communities are of the highest standard."
