I am concerned that we have not received a list of the groupings of amendments and it would be helpful to have one....

Seanad: Forestry (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill 2020: Committee and Remaining Stages (25 Sep 2020)

David Norris: It would have been helpful and I thank the Leas-Chathaoirleach. My amendment proposes that "a copy of the report will at the same time be made available to the public on the Government of Ireland website and the Government Publications Office.". This is a fairly straightforward amendment and I do hope very much that the Government will be able to accede to it. This is all in the light of...

Seanad: Forestry (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill 2020: Committee and Remaining Stages (25 Sep 2020)

David Norris: I am grateful to the Minister of State for accepting this amendment. I was briefed on this extensively by a constituent, Ms Sabrina Joyce, who is a great grand-niece of the writer, James Joyce. She will be very glad to hear that this amendment was successful. I appeal to the Leas-Chathaoirleach to revisit his judgment about amendments Nos. 101 and 102 in the name of Senator Higgins because...

Seanad: Forestry (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill 2020: Committee and Remaining Stages (25 Sep 2020)

David Norris: I support this amendment. It seems eminently sensible. What we need is expertise. One does not want people who know nothing about forestry on these committees. What is needed are people with skills and experience in the area of forestry; this and another amendment lists biodiversity, water quality, climate change and environmental legislation. This is eminently sensible. I cannot see...

Seanad: Forestry (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill 2020: Second Stage (23 Sep 2020)

David Norris: I compliment the Leas-Chathaoirleach on his elevation, which is a most appropriate appointment. I am astonished that a Green Party Minister of State would introduce legislation of this kind to the House. I recall the Heritage Bill some years ago when I was the only person to object to the introduction of legislation that would threaten many of the most endangered wild bird species. I got...

Seanad: Withdrawal Agreement Between the United Kingdom and the European Union: Motion (23 Sep 2020)

David Norris: I am very grateful to my colleague, Senator Craughwell, for giving me this opportunity. It would be a good idea if the Government sent a copy of this important debate to the British Government so that it can see the strength of feeling in this country. I feel particularly strongly because my father was English. He was an honourable man. He won the marine VC in the First World War. He got...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (18 Sep 2020)

David Norris: I propose an amendment to the Order of Business: "That No. 12 be taken before No. 1." This Bill concerned deals with genetic screening, an issue on which I spoke at some length in the previous Seanad. I also raise the business of fobbing in. We are certainly getting mixed messages from the Government. We are being told on the one hand to stay at home, isolate and work from home, but then...
