Medical Practitioners (Amendment) Bill 2017: Second Stage [Private Members] (19 Oct 2017)

John Brassil: I welcome this Bill from my colleague, Deputy Kelleher. I also welcome the positive response from the Minister and from Deputy Louise O'Reilly on behalf of Sinn Féin. With collaboration, we can get this legislation passed. It is meaningful in that it seeks to clear up the relationship between drug companies and medical practitioners to ensure that there are no beneficial rewards going...

Medical Practitioners (Amendment) Bill 2017: Second Stage [Private Members] (19 Oct 2017)

Simon Harris: I thank Deputy Kelleher for bringing forward this important legislative proposal. I commend the Deputy on his work in this area and assure him that I and Government will support the reading of this Bill for a Second Time. In doing so, I caution that, as has already been recognised by Deputy Kelleher, we need to do a good bit of work to tease through the Bill before it proceeds to the next...

Medical Practitioners (Amendment) Bill 2017: Second Stage [Private Members] (19 Oct 2017)

Louise O'Reilly: I commend Deputy Kelleher on this Bill. I am glad to say that Sinn Féin will support it. I have not been in this line of work for long but I am learning that a short Bill can do more than a very lengthy Bill. This is the case with this legislation. It is a good and fair idea that medical practitioners declare any income or gift received from medical suppliers, pharmaceutical...

Topical Issues: GLAS Payments (19 Oct 2017)

Martin Kenny: I understand that and I understand why the problem has arisen. I would like the Minister of State to try to deal with it. The system was to take in the nutrient management plans before March 2017. The deadline was extended until the middle of June. It then had to be extended a second time, into July, because the system was not able to take them. That is what I was told was the reason....

Topical Issues: GLAS Payments (19 Oct 2017)

Andrew Doyle: The advisers.

Topical Issues: GLAS Payments (19 Oct 2017)

Martin Kenny: Or the advisers. There will always be somebody who is a little late. Everybody does not get every wisp of hay home; that is life but farmers have been waiting for their money for a very lengthy period as the Minister of State will acknowledge. What needs to be acknowledged is that there is a problem in the Department in regard to the IT systems it uses. I am not blaming the Minister of...

Topical Issues: GLAS Payments (19 Oct 2017)

Andrew Doyle: I wish to clarify a couple of points. I attended the Agricultural Consultants Association annual conference and was asked about this matter at the end of it. It was just coming up to the deadlines for area aid applications, in May. Those to whom I spoke said the workload at that time made it very difficult for them to get nutrient management plans in. They said everything was running to...

Medical Practitioners (Amendment) Bill 2017: Second Stage [Private Members] (19 Oct 2017)

Billy Kelleher: I move: "That the Bill be now read a Second Time." I welcome the opportunity to present this Bill to the House and hope it receives broad support in terms of what we are trying to achieve. Its purpose is to make it a legislative requirement that there be a statutory declaration by consultants, clinicians and other medical practitioners who receive gifts or donations from pharmaceutical...
