Ceisteanna ar Pholasaí nó ar Reachtaíocht - Questions on Policy or Legislation (13 Jun 2024)

Denis Naughten: On behalf of the Regional Group I want to be associated with the best wishes for Deputy Whitmore and we hope to see her back in the House soon. I also thank Martin Murray for his 22 years of service in the House. Many Members may not realise the reason his boxing skills were headhunted in the House was because, in a previous Dáil, we had a colleague, former Deputy Joe Higgins, who...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (13 Jun 2024)

Denis Naughten: Patients with rare diseases face even greater challenges in accessing new treatments or orphan drugs, as they are often called. On average, they wait nearly 26 months. This delay is especially tragic, as approximately 30% of children with a rare disease will pass away before their fifth birthday. The impact of these delays on patients with rare diseases is profound. How can we defend a...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (13 Jun 2024)

Denis Naughten: In Ireland cancer remains one of the leading causes of death. Timely access to new and effective treatments is crucial for improving the survival rates and the quality of life for patients. However, delay in accessing these treatments has become a significant issue, adversely impacting patients' health and survival rates. Currently the approval process for cancer drugs in Ireland involves...

Nature Restoration Law: Motion [Private Members] (12 Jun 2024)

Denis Naughten: I thank all my colleagues who contributed to this debate. I thank the Minister of State for clarifying that, regardless of whether this is adopted at EU level, we will see a compulsion with regard to nature restoration in this country. It is set out in statute now and a plan needs to be put in place. What is in that plan is critically important and this is what we are talking about here. ...

Select Committee on Health: Health (Miscellaneous Provisions) (No. 2) Bill 2024: Committee Stage (12 Jun 2024)

Denis Naughten: I want to ask one question about the definition of "relation". As the Minister of State will know, we have been dealing with a number of cases regarding the nearest living next of kin who are beyond first cousins. The legislation, as currently drafted and presented on Second Stage, only facilitates accommodating the transfer of land to first cousins. That provision is insufficient to deal...

Select Committee on Health: Health (Miscellaneous Provisions) (No. 2) Bill 2024: Committee Stage (12 Jun 2024)

Select Committee on Health: Health (Miscellaneous Provisions) (No. 2) Bill 2024: Committee Stage (12 Jun 2024)

Denis Naughten: Whether you are urban or rural, you would be treated the same. The difficulty is that we have people who cannot go into nursing homes, or people who are in nursing homes and their successors are farming the land and paying out from the income from the land in order to keep them in nursing homes, which was never the intention of this legislation. It is a small cohort of people but it is...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Social Protection: Impact of Single Means Test and Experience of Universal Credit System in the United Kingdom: Discussion (12 Jun 2024)

Denis Naughten: While the witnesses are thinking about that point, I will ask a question. They have experience of looking at the evidence and models in different countries. There are two things that the committee is anxious to try to do, either through this mechanism or other mechanisms. One is to try to maximise the uptake rates for those people who are eligible. Are there any good tools that the...
