Questions on Promised Legislation (23 Nov 2017)

Frances Fitzgerald: I understand the Catchment Flood Risk Assessment and Management, CFRAM, plans will be published shortly but the Deputy is correct. Given what we have seen in the past day or so we absolutely must keep this issue and how we respond to it under review. We saw a very good response from the agencies with Storm Ophelia but the Deputy is correct and we must stay targeted on this. If we can...

Questions on Promised Legislation (23 Nov 2017)

Frances Fitzgerald: I can confirm that the Minister of State at the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform, Deputy Kevin Boxer Moran, will visit the area – in fact, he may already be there.

Questions on Promised Legislation (23 Nov 2017)

Frances Fitzgerald: I agree with Deputy Smith that another SAVI report would be very important. We need up-to-date macro information on sexual and domestic violence in this country.

Questions on Promised Legislation (23 Nov 2017)

Frances Fitzgerald: I seem to remember that the Deputy welcomed the proposal that the agency should be put on a statutory footing with commissioners in charge of it.

Questions on Promised Legislation (23 Nov 2017)

Frances Fitzgerald: I thought I read that she had. It must have been misreported. The Government plans to establish the ODCE on a statutory footing, with commissioners as opposed to the current model whereby it is part of the Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation. I am not in a position to publish the ODCE report because I have strong legal advice that it is not within my power under the...

Leaders' Questions (23 Nov 2017)

Frances Fitzgerald: Aviation policy will of course be impacted by the national planning framework and the regional plans.

Leaders' Questions (23 Nov 2017)

Frances Fitzgerald: I thank Deputy Healy. I am aware of the work done by Arthritis Ireland - I have taken a special interest in that - and iCan.

This is a common disease of childhood. It is estimated that there are more than 1,000...

Leaders' Questions (23 Nov 2017)

Frances Fitzgerald: The need for another rheumatologist in Crumlin is acknowledged. The development of the new children's hospital and urgent care centres also provide us with an opportunity to progress the integration of the three hospitals and plan for the kind of provision which the Deputy said is needed. I repeat that is an area of significant demand. There are waiting lists, but every effort is being made...

Leaders' Questions (23 Nov 2017)

Frances Fitzgerald: Let me say one thing to the Deputy. My party has always believed in due process and I have always believed in due process. She can speak for her own party in regard to how it handles issues that arise but I can speak for my party, and I have always followed the principle of natural justice and due process. When the issue emerged in regard to Maurice McCabe and his treatment with An...

Leaders' Questions (23 Nov 2017)

Frances Fitzgerald: Let me put on the record of the House, finally, that with regard to the actual - if we call it that - legal strategy, it is yet to be determined what precisely that was.
