Anti-Evictions Bill 2018: Second Stage [Private Members] (12 Dec 2018)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: It is inappropriate to name somebody who is not in the House or in a position to defend himself. I am not aware if this person has been named in the media. If he has, that is one matter.

Anti-Evictions Bill 2018: Second Stage [Private Members] (12 Dec 2018)

Ruth Coppinger: It is just a factual matter.

Anti-Evictions Bill 2018: Second Stage [Private Members] (12 Dec 2018)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: The Deputy is not naming him to praise him.

Anti-Evictions Bill 2018: Second Stage [Private Members] (12 Dec 2018)

Mick Barry: I visited the property last night in order to see it for myself. This landlord is trying to evict families with children at Christmas on the grounds of renovation. Who is extreme? Is it the parties in the Dáil that would ban this practice or the parties that allow it to happen under the law? I will list some of the key changes provided for in the Bill and comment briefly on some of...

Anti-Evictions Bill 2018: Second Stage [Private Members] (12 Dec 2018)

Richard Boyd Barrett: I will start by referring to what the Taoiseach stated earlier and the use of the term "extreme". This has become a familiar trope of the Taoiseach when referring to the socialist left and our policies. It is part of a wider, quite worrying, narrative that is taking hold in the mainstream political establishment across Europe, which says there are extremists on the right and extremists on...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate (Resumed): Medicinal Products Availability (12 Dec 2018)

Pat Deering: I thank the Minister of State for his comprehensive reply. I welcome the initiatives commenced this year, in particular the review committee established in June but it is important a timeline is put in place for completion and publication of that review. It is also important that these drugs are affordable and that the State is not in hock to, or taken advantage of by, the large...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate (Resumed): Medicinal Products Availability (12 Dec 2018)

Jim Daly: I will take on the Deputy's challenge of putting in place a timeline for the range of initiatives outlined in my speech. There always will be tension between the State as the purchaser of important drugs and the giant pharmaceutical companies producing and supplying them, often for lottery type amounts of money. The State has to ensure affordability not only in terms of fiscal governance...

Anti-Evictions Bill 2018: Second Stage [Private Members] (12 Dec 2018)

Mick Barry: I move: "That the Bill be now read a Second Time." Last week, Threshold published its annual report 2017. The report revealed that 32% of the 75,000 calls it received last year were in regard to eviction notices. The previous year, 2016, eviction notices accounted for 14% of calls to Threshold. Calls regarding eviction notices have more than doubled in one year. According to Threshold...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate (Resumed): Respite Care Services (12 Dec 2018)

Brendan Smith: I thank the Minister of State for his reply. I am glad that the restriction due to the particular needs of the one person he refers to has been lifted and that the service has now returned to normal capacity. Normal capacity is under capacity and that is the bottom line. When the Minister of State, Deputy Finian McGrath, met a delegation, along with me, he conceded that there is currently...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate (Resumed): Respite Care Services (12 Dec 2018)

Jim Daly: I accept everything that Deputy Brendan Smith has said. I acknowledge that it is not just his right to raise this issue but his duty as a public representative. Our duty as a collective is to be there to be the voice of these families who do not have the time for the kind of advocacy they wish to do because they are caring full time. Respite is a basic fundamental service that any society...

Medicinal Products Availability

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate (Resumed): Medicinal Products Availability (12 Dec 2018)

Pat Deering: I thank the Ceann Comhairle for choosing this topic. The availability of orphan drugs has come to my attention and has been mentioned many times in this House recently. Orphan drugs are drugs specifically designed to diagnose or prevent life-threatening or chronically debilitating rare diseases. An increasingly common issue in Ireland is that drugs fail to secure reimbursement from the...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate (Resumed): Medicinal Products Availability (12 Dec 2018)

Jim Daly: I thank Deputy Deering for raising this issue. I appreciate that a rare disease diagnosis places enormous stress on patients and their families and, as Deputy Deering is aware, access to potentially beneficial medicines for the treatment of rare diseases is extremely important for patients and their families. I want to assure Deputy Deering that the Minister for Health works tirelessly to...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Immigration Policy (12 Dec 2018)

Michael Fitzmaurice: I thank the Minister of State for clarifying the position. The CDU had a heated and protracted debate on this issue even though Angela Merkel is very much in favour of supporting migrants. There is a fear about why Austria and many other countries have pulled out of the process. Many politicians, as outlined by the Minister of State, have probably supported this for political gain. The...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Immigration Policy (12 Dec 2018)

David Stanton: On behalf of the Minister, I thank the Deputies for this opportunity to discuss the global migration pact and to set out exactly what the compact involves. I hope I was clear on that. We cannot be responsible for what other countries have decided to do or not to do. That is their business but we have been engaged in this process for quite some time. It does not infringe on our sovereignty...

Business of the Dáil (12 Dec 2018)

Business of the Dáil (12 Dec 2018)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: Before proceeding to the third Topical Issue matter, the Government Chief Whip has a brief business proposal to put to the House.

Business of the Dáil (12 Dec 2018)

Seán Kyne: It is proposed, notwithstanding anything in the Standing Orders of the Dáil or the order of the Dáil of yesterday, that the Dáil shall sit at 10.30 a.m. tomorrow and that the Houses of the Oireachtas Commission (Amendment) Bill 2018 shall not be taken.

Business of the Dáil (12 Dec 2018)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: Is that agreed? Agreed.
