Topical Issue Debate: Water Pollution (19 Apr 2018)

Martin Ferris: The way to resolve the issue is for there to be a face-to-face meeting. It could take half an hour. A meeting can take place if the will is there to do it.

The problem is that an individual dumped construction material...

Fodder Shortage: Motion [Private Members] (17 Apr 2018)

Martin Ferris: I support the motion on the fodder crisis and the Sinn Féin amendment. We are trying to come up with constructive ways to address the crisis. We have been through all of this before in 2013.

Topical Issue Debate: Hospital Staff (28 Mar 2018)

Topical Issue Debate: Hospital Staff (28 Mar 2018)

Martin Ferris: I find it difficult to understand how the HSE can say it received no formal resignation, yet it says it has a consultant on a weekly basis and another on a monthly basis treating cardiac patients in Kerry. My information is that a part-time cardiologist comes to the hospital for one day or perhaps two days per week. That is deemed to be sufficient despite the huge waiting lists in the...

Martin Ferris: It is essential that the debate on this issue inside and outside the Oireachtas is carried out in a respectful and cordial manner and that all points of view are heard. We must not go down the road of the 1983 referendum campaign when people were viciously attacked and called murderers and so forth. Much of the conduct during that debate was disgraceful.
