00:01:17 SOUNDBITE (English) Sean BARRETT TD (Ceann Comhairle): “I will like to express a very warm welcome to Mr Martin SCHULZ, President of the EP, in his first visit here as the President of his institution. 00:00:05
00:01:22 SOUNDBITE (English) Sean BARRETT TD: “As you know Ireland will assume the presidency of the EU and Europe is facing a number of difficulties and trials, particularly the financial and economic crises which occurred in different countries, including Ireland. It is now my great pleasure to invite President Schulz to take its place in the Chamber, and to address members following the Taoiseach statement to the House. 00:00:21
00:01:43 Applause 00:00:15
00:01:58 SOUNDBITE (English) Enda KENNY, the Taoiseach “Ireland wants a prosper and a secure Union, and a stable and strong currency. That it’s in our interest it is also in Europe’s interest. The government and I will be working hard, to contribute as much as we can to archiving those ends, when we assume the presidency in January”. 00:00:29
00:02:27 SOUNDBITE (English) Martin SCHULZ, EP President : “The biggest risk for Europe is the lack of mutual trust. How can we belie we can regain confidence of our citizens if the highest European body, the Council of Heads of States and governments is not reliable. We will never regain trust of our citizens if we not stick to our promises. After all Ireland got in to trouble because it tucked over the debts of its banking system. Irish taxpayers are now . Irish taxpayers are now paying the bankers' bills to stop a domino effect that could have dragged the whole European banking system down”. 00:00:36
00:03:03 SOUNDBITE (English) Martin SCHULZ, EP President : “One country's economic problems can undermine the European economy, but many countries working together can solve the problem. Either we all sail together or we all sink separately. Solidarity is in all our best interest”. 00:00:19
00:03:22 SOUNDBITE (English) Martin SCHULZ, EP President : The ministers of Finance in the frame of the European semester have to send the draft budget to Brussels, before you will adopt it here. In Brussels civil servants of the Commission will have a look to your draft budget: the German one; the Italian one; all of the member states budgets. They will analyse those budgets on the bases of the so called annual growth survey, which is not a criteria adopted buy the European Parliament. That means concretely your Irish draft budget will be evaluated by civil servants of the Commission on the bases of criteria’s they have themselves developed. This is de-parlameterisation, and therefore we are not happy with this, the national parliaments and the European Parliament. Thank you very much”. 00:01:00
00:04:22 Applause 00:00:15
00:04:37 SOUNDBITE (English) Eamon GILMORE, Tànaiste and Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade You can be assured that Ireland’s Presidency of the EU next year will not be an exercise of technocratic management. Ireland’s Presidency of the EU next year will be to provide leadership within the EU on the issues that matter to our people, and particularly the issue of youth unemployment that you have address so eloquently here this morning”. 00:00:28
