During the debate earlier, there were sharp exchanges between Sinn Féin leader Mary Lou McDonald and Housing Minister Darragh O'Brien.
Deputy McDonald told the chamber: "The dogs on the street know and can see that Minister O'Brien has failed abysmally.
"Let me suggest that he be at the front of the queue when this Government packs its bags to go".
Minister O'Brien replied: "My God Deputy McDonald, your arrogance today has not just gone stratospheric - it's gone intergalactic.
"You'd need the NASA's Webb Telescope to be able to track it".
While Finance Minister Paschal Donohoe said the Sinn Féin motion was devoid of solutions to the country's problems.
"Rarely have I heard a speech delivered so full of attack, so lacking in content as I heard here this afternoon.
"I listened carefully to what Deputy Mary Lou McDonald had to say here this evening.
"She talked about the need to change: in the 15 minutes that were open to you, you proposed one solution.
"What was that solution? A tax credit - that's what the solution was".
