The Labour Party leader Alan Kelly has suggested the rental platform Airbnb needs regulation - but only in urban areas.
Mr Kelly, whose constituency is Tipperary, has a property which is rented out in a rural area.
He told Pat Kenny this is used as a connection for his family.
"My wife is from down there, so it's a connection down there for her and her family.
"I've an issue with Airbnb in urban areas as opposed to rural areas - particularly in areas... where that house is, it's a very small population area.
"I think in urban areas, it is an area that needs regulation yes".
Speaking about Ireland's approach to plans for a minimum corporate tax rate by the OECD, Mr Kelly says we should be part of it.
"I think from a tax point of view, we need proper amounts of tax coming in from all large corporations.
"We would be open to smaller companies and organisations, instead of 12.5% - if that is feasible and technically feasible as well, I suppose.
"We believe that this is right, I think we couldn't be an outlier here, it would look ridiculous.
"From an Irish point of view after coming through everything we've come through, and after coming through Brexit, we can stand on our own feet as regards all the positive stuff we can share as regards the image of Ireland and how we can attract investment".
'A lot in common' with Soc Dems
Asked whether Labour and the Social Democrats may come closer together in any upcoming elections, Mr Kelly suggested this will not be happening.
"As regards the Social Democrats, they're their own party and I wish them the best.
"We've an awful lot in common with them, but they're a party that's different from us.
"We've our own ambitions and we'll be doing our own thing".
Mr Kelly says he was recently asked what the difference between the two parties was.
He replied: "The difference between the Social Democrats and the Labour Party was the Social Democrats were formed by Stephen Donnelly, the Labour Party was formed by James Connolly.
"We've an awful lot of differences between us, we've an awful lot of historical differences - from a scale point of view, we're in a different category to the Social Democrats.
"But I think there's some very fine people doing some very fine work, and I wish them the best".
