Joint Oireachtas Committee on Social Protection: Pension and Social Protection Related Issues: Discussion (1 Jun 2022)

Éamon Ó Cuív: I should point out that people can pay voluntary contributions within five years of their last payment. I do not want anything on the record that is not accurate.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Social Protection: Pension and Social Protection Related Issues: Discussion (1 Jun 2022)

Éamon Ó Cuív: Those on jobseekers benefit, illness benefit and so on can also pay voluntary contributions. For anybody who is interested in making voluntary contributions, the best thing to do is to look up the rules to ensure that they are getting it right. I was slightly wrong.

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Legislative Programme (31 May 2022)

Éamon Ó Cuív: Perhaps the Minister of State will confirm whether the Bill will be recommenced in the Dáil or whether there is going to be a new Bill with the same information in it, just to go through the procedure ab initio. It seems to me that if there were this much difficulty with the Standing Orders, the best thing to do would have been to reprint the Bill, title it the wildlife (amendment) Bill...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Legislative Programme (31 May 2022)

Éamon Ó Cuív: Will the Minister of State give us an indication as to how many amendments were made in the Seanad?

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Legislative Programme (31 May 2022)

Éamon Ó Cuív: It is with deep regret that I raise this issue again, along with my colleague, Deputy Fitzmaurice. We raised it some time ago and were given assurances that work was ongoing on the matter. I then submitted a parliamentary question on it. To say the reply was opaque and less than satisfactory would be putting it mildly. We are talking about a Bill that had passed the Dáil and the...

Transport, Accelerating Sustainable Mobility: Statements (31 May 2022)

Éamon Ó Cuív: Unfortunately, this debate is far too short and I only have two minutes to contribute. I will try to be brief. I have been a strong advocate of public transport. I must say that the inaction over years by the Department of Transport and the NTA on simple issues that could be done immediately has been absolutely staggering. There was a consultation on Connecting Ireland but we do not have...

Passport Services: Statements (26 May 2022)

Éamon Ó Cuív: Tá áthas orm cúpla focal a rá ar an ábhar seo. Years ago, I was selling fencing stakes and ran out of them. A purchaser who was looking for a lorryload of fencing stakes in a hurry rang me. I started to explain the problems I faced with supply and so on. He told me that was not his problem. He said he was not looking for excuses; he was looking for fencing...

Passport Services: Statements (26 May 2022)

Éamon Ó Cuív: My second point about the system is that when the application gets to printing stage, it is absolutely critical that the tracking system is kept up to date with news about when the passport will hit the post. If it is going to hit the post today, the applicant will have it tomorrow because the postal service is very good. That is when people are most dependent on the tracking system. I...
