Other Questions: Arts Funding (14 Nov 2017)

Mick Wallace: I have stayed within my own-----

Other Questions: Arts Funding (14 Nov 2017)

Mick Wallace: The justification for handing this funding to Creative Ireland is "to accelerate its programme". Is there an effort on the part of Creative Ireland to eclipse the Arts Council? The Arts Council's own ten-year strategy, Making Great Art Work, was published, strangely enough, without any reference whatsoever to the Department's own ten-year cultural policy, Culture 2025, which is supposed to...

Other Questions: Arts Funding (14 Nov 2017)

Mick Wallace: There are concerns about how the money is being used. What is the Minister's response to Emmet Kirwan, the brilliant playwright, who said that Creative Ireland's so-called fifth pillar "appears to be that artists should get on message and it commodifies the arts and co-opts artists to put forward an idealised version to the world of what Ireland is like, which is a branding exercise; but...

Other Questions: Arts Funding (14 Nov 2017)

Mick Wallace: 48. To ask the Minister for Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht if she is satisfied that the budget 2018 decision to increase the Arts Council's funding by less than 5% is consistent with the goal to double investment in the arts sector over the next seven years; the way in which she plans to meet this funding goal between 2017 and 2024; and if she will make a statement on the matter.

Other Questions: Arts Funding (14 Nov 2017)

Mick Wallace: My question is very similar to that of Deputy Niamh Smyth and relates to the same issue. There seems to be some confusion. The amount of money allocated to the arts in Ireland is way below the European norm. The Taoiseach has promised a lot more but we are playing catch-up and it seems that is going to continue. Given that the arts is so important to the Irish people, more should be done....

Mick Wallace: I think I have 12 minutes.

Heritage Bill 2016 [Seanad]: Second Stage (Resumed) (9 Nov 2017)

Mick Wallace: I will probably take it all. In many ways it is strange to call this Bill a Heritage Bill. It seems to me to facilitate the eradication and destruction of certain elements of Irish heritage. There are a number of parts to the Bill, including provisions on canals and the burning of vegetation on uncultivated land, as well as changes to the laws protecting National Parks and Wildlife...

Civil Liability (Amendment) Bill [Seanad] 2017: Report Stage (Resumed) and Final Stage (8 Nov 2017)

Mick Wallace: I will address the amendments in the group which deal with apologies and the provision that an apology shall not constitute an admission of liability. This is a crucial issue. As noted in the discussion on the second group of amendments, apologies are one of the most important aspects of any open disclosure process. The Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care reviewed...

Civil Liability (Amendment) Bill [Seanad] 2017: Report Stage (Resumed) and Final Stage (8 Nov 2017)

Mick Wallace: I wish to follow up on the comments of Deputy Catherine Connolly. I am a great believer in trusting everyone until they prove unworthy of it. I raised yesterday with the Taoiseach the case of a woman called Jane Johnstone, who was having an horrendous time with the HSE in Wexford owing to her having had the audacity to stand up for herself and her two autistic children. I wish it were...
