Public Accounts Committee: Financial Statement 2020 and Related Matters: HSE (16 Sep 2021)

Catherine Murphy: I welcome Mr. Reid and his team. I appreciate that there was certainly a context to the events. That is important to note. We remember the sharing of ventilators in Italy and we appreciate that ICUs have been hugely under-resourced. Let us accept that that is the scenario we are talking about. I think every member of the committee appreciates all of the work done, particularly by those...

Public Accounts Committee: Financial Statement 2020 and Related Matters: HSE (16 Sep 2021)

Catherine Murphy: Reading the KPMG report, a lot of the sourcing of PPE was done by desktop. I believe masks were the only items of PPE that were inspected. For example, there was an issue with 1 million units that were issued to healthcare settings. That related to hand sanitisers. Are there other issues? We saw all the efforts made, the Aer Lingus flight and all the rest of it, to get the PPE. I...

Public Accounts Committee: Financial Statement 2020 and Related Matters: HSE (16 Sep 2021)

Catherine Murphy: How many resolution processes are under way? Does the HSE have a ballpark cost for these?

Public Accounts Committee: Financial Statement 2020 and Related Matters: HSE (16 Sep 2021)

Catherine Murphy: What is the ballpark amount?

Public Accounts Committee: Financial Statement 2020 and Related Matters: HSE (16 Sep 2021)

Catherine Murphy: With regard to the data hack, I know it falls in this financial year as opposed to the last financial year. Do the witnesses have a ballpark figure for the cost to date of the hack?

Public Accounts Committee: Financial Statement 2020 and Related Matters: HSE (16 Sep 2021)

Catherine Murphy: I have two questions. First, given that the HSE is going legal in respect of four suppliers regarding ventilators, how many of those have had legal papers lodged so that the legal process has commenced? Second, reference has been made to the €200 million that was underspent in the budget that has come into this year. How much of that relates to things like vacancies in the service?...

Firearms and Offensive Weapons (Amendment) Bill 2021: Second Stage [Private Members] (15 Jul 2021)

James Browne: I take Deputy Kenny's comments on board. The broader piece is very important. In any instance where there is violent crime, education is critical, whatever the causes of the crime. Tackling socioeconomic problems and taking a wrap-around approach is also important. That is what we are doing with the antisocial behaviour forum. We are trying to find a way to look at the different causes...

Firearms and Offensive Weapons (Amendment) Bill 2021: Second Stage [Private Members] (15 Jul 2021)

Jim O'Callaghan: I thank the Minister of State and my colleagues, Deputies Devlin and Kenny, for their contributions. It has been most beneficial that we have had this debate. As all speakers have recognised, changing this law is not really going to resolve the problem. Legislation itself is a very blunt instrument. Therefore, when we introduce legislation into this House, sometimes it can generate a...

Firearms and Offensive Weapons (Amendment) Bill 2021: Second Stage [Private Members] (15 Jul 2021)

Question put and agreed to.

Firearms and Offensive Weapons (Amendment) Bill 2021: Second Stage [Private Members] (15 Jul 2021)

Catherine Connolly: Before we finish, earlier today I noted that this is our final day of the session of this Dáil. It is also, as Deputy O'Callaghan has just pointed out, likely to be our final sitting here in the convention centre as it is expected we will make a full return to Leinster House in September. As many Deputies have said, there has been a significant disruption to the lives of Deputies and...

Firearms and Offensive Weapons (Amendment) Bill 2021: Second Stage [Private Members] (15 Jul 2021)

The Dáil adjourned at at 5.08 p.m. until 2 p.m. on Wednesday, 15 September 2021.

Firearms and Offensive Weapons (Amendment) Bill 2021: Second Stage [Private Members] (15 Jul 2021)

Martin Kenny: I thank Deputy O'Callaghan, the proposer of the Bill. It is an important debate to have in the House. Much of this came from several incidents in the early part of the year. A woman from Mongolia who worked as a cleaner was stabbed not far from where the House is sitting. Such tragedies that are suffered by families really bring into sharp focus the need to do something on these issues....

Firearms and Offensive Weapons (Amendment) Bill 2021: Second Stage [Private Members] (15 Jul 2021)

Catherine Connolly: Go raibh maith agat, a Theachta.

Firearms and Offensive Weapons (Amendment) Bill 2021: Second Stage [Private Members] (15 Jul 2021)

James Browne: I echo the sentiments of Deputy Devlin in thanking the Leas-Cheann Comhairle, the Ceann Comhairle, the ushers and other staff of the Houses of the Oireachtas, the staff in the convention centre and the members of An Garda Síochána who assisted us. They have done Trojan work over the recent period in keeping us all safe and effective as we did our work in the convention centre. ...

Firearms and Offensive Weapons (Amendment) Bill 2021: Second Stage [Private Members] (15 Jul 2021)

Cormac Devlin: Like my colleague, I welcome the opportunity to examine the Firearms and Offensive Weapons (Amendment) Bill 2021. I thank the Deputy for introducing this Bill last March. It seeks to increase the maximum prison sentence that can be imposed for the possession of knives. The Bill is a direct response to the increase in knife crime we have witnessed, unfortunately, in the capital and...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: An Taisce (15 Jul 2021)

Mattie McGrath: I welcome the Leas-Cheann Comhairle and thank her for all of her co-operation over the past year. I know she differs with me ferociously on this issue. I have acknowledged all of the good work of An Taisce. I have been involved in the green schools campaign and have worked with Tidy Towns groups all of my life. I acknowledge the good work An Taisce has done but I believe we need to...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: An Taisce (15 Jul 2021)

Richard O'Donoghue: I share Deputy Mattie McGrath's sentiments. We welcome the work An Taisce does with regard to the clean-up. I am been involved in the clean-ups in Limerick, as have all my family, neighbours and friends. That is a plus and a positive. The negative is what An Taisce is doing on the other side. The Minister of State has just said that it invoiced us for €675,000 during 2020. I want...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: An Taisce (15 Jul 2021)

Hildegarde Naughton: An Taisce is a non-governmental organisation active in the areas of the environment and built heritage in Ireland. The Minister for the Environment, Climate and Communications has no statutory function in respect of this organisation. The Department provides An Taisce with funding for a variety of initiatives, including the national spring clean, Irish Business Against Litter, the national...

Firearms and Offensive Weapons (Amendment) Bill 2021: Second Stage [Private Members] (15 Jul 2021)

Firearms and Offensive Weapons (Amendment) Bill 2021: Second Stage [Private Members] (15 Jul 2021)

Jim O'Callaghan: I move: "That the Bill be now read a Second Time." I will share my time with Deputy Devlin, who I believe is to speak for five minutes. I welcome the opportunity to commence the Second Stage debate on the Firearms and Offensive Weapons (Amendment) Bill 2021. Fianna Fáil and I introduced this legislation last March because of the increasing concern of the parliamentary party...
