An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (6 May 2020)

An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (6 May 2020)

Marc MacSharry: I note that it seems to be done on something of a d'Hondt system in that the larger parties have four members and there are disproportionately fewer places for the smaller groupings. With what frequency is the committee going to meet and would it be the same frequency as the Dáil reform committee that was constituted here six or seven weeks ago? It would be superficial for us to set up...

Covid-19 (Business, Enterprise and Innovation): Statements (30 Apr 2020)

Marc MacSharry: The Minister can log those questions. I am conscious that I have very limited time. The Minister will have much more speaking time than me in the future so if she cannot answer them during my time, she can do it during her own time, perhaps to the media outside the Chamber.

Covid-19 (Business, Enterprise and Innovation): Statements (30 Apr 2020)

Marc MacSharry: I am grateful for the opportunity to contribute on this issue. I am very conscious that I am one of the very few that have had the opportunity to do this. I want to express our thanks as a party to all people on the front line, not just in the health service but those manning supermarkets, filling stations, doing deliveries, manufacturing and so on. It is to their eternal credit and we...

Standing Orders 21 and 22: Motion (30 Apr 2020)

I think that those arrangements are a matter that needs to be discussed, for every Member to have an opportunity to speak on them. I respectfully suggest that on the basis that all of us have individual offices here, and with the benefit, as with this debate, of allocated speaking times that...

Standing Orders 21 and 22: Motion (30 Apr 2020)

Marc MacSharry: I ask the Ceann Comhairle to allow a bit of latitude. I sympathise with the situation and have no doubt that individual Members and expert groups are doing their absolute best. Surely it is in the interests of democracy and the upholding of the Constitution itself that all 160 Members might have an opportunity to examine, rather than just accept and comment upon, such experts' advice so...
