Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: School Transport (12 May 2022)

David Stanton: The decision to use the second-nearest school for these purposes was an inspired one. I agree with the Minister that it has made a huge difference. Will the Minister clarify if it is in place again this year? Perhaps she is familiar with the route between Carrigtwohill and Cobh. Can girls from Cobh now get transport to the school in Carrigtwohill, which would be their second-nearest...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Special Educational Needs (12 May 2022)

David Stanton: I acknowledge the work the Minister of State is doing in this area. In respect of the National Council for Special Education, NCSE, and its appeal system, is the Minister of State aware of the length of time it takes for appeals to be heard? Furthermore, very often when appeals are upheld, nothing happens and schools are told they must go through the whole process again. I suggest the NCSE...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation: WTO Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights and Covid-19 Vaccines: Discussion (11 May 2022)

David Stanton: I welcome our guests. It is a fascinating debate and discussion to date. I will focus on a number of points. In regard to the vaccine hesitancy, I notice that the IPHA has said low update rates are due to hesitancy. She may correct me if I am wrong but I think Dr. Kelly penned a letter to The Irish Timeslast January contradicting this, saying there is no more hesitancy in the market than...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation: WTO Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights and Covid-19 Vaccines: Discussion (11 May 2022)

David Stanton: It was stated earlier that more than 100 manufacturers globally can now manufacture the vaccine. They were given permission to do so. Even if those vaccines were manufactured in the states Dr. Kelly mentioned, would the challenges regarding hesitancy, supply chains, enough syringes, and getting the logistics in the countries up to speed to administer the vaccines continue?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation: WTO Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights and Covid-19 Vaccines: Discussion (11 May 2022)

David Stanton: The US has changed its stance on the waiver but some of our guests said that it did not go far enough. The US trade representative, Katherine Tai, announced in 2021 that the US would support the waiver of IP protections in the context of Covid-19 vaccines that were introduced by the governments of India and South Africa. That is a major step forward. Jorge Contreras, from the University of...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation: WTO Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights and Covid-19 Vaccines: Discussion (11 May 2022)

David Stanton: The Oxfam submission states, "Experts have estimated that there will be a 15 billion dose shortfall in mRNA Covid vaccine production in 2022." The IPHA has said that 12 billion doses have been produced and 10 billion administered. There seems to be a conflict with respect to the number of vaccines required and the number available. Will the two sides comment on that?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation: WTO Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights and Covid-19 Vaccines: Discussion (11 May 2022)

David Stanton: In the submission from Oxfam, it is maintained there is an estimated 15-billion dose gap in mRNA Covid-19 vaccine production in 2022. Mr. O'Connor said 10 billion doses had been administered and the "speed of Covid-19 vaccines production is outpacing their administration". There seems to be a contradiction there in that the need, according to Oxfam, etc., is for 15 billion doses for this...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation: WTO Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights and Covid-19 Vaccines: Discussion (11 May 2022)

David Stanton: Very briefly, I will refer to a number of things. On the final point as to whether we are the correct committee to deal with this, I note the Department has issued a note stating we may not be. Perhaps our secretariat could check that out. I believe the Department is saying it is the Committee on Health that should be dealing with this, which is somewhat frustrating if that is the case. ...
