Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Veterinary Medicines (15 Jul 2021)

Michael McNamara: If we could take a step back, the purpose of all of this is to reduce the overuse of antibiotics, antimicrobials and antiparasitics so that we do not have a build-up of resistance and that we do not have antibiotic resistance or antiparasitic resistance. As a farmer and, maybe more importantly, as a consumer, I greatly welcome that. However, how do we achieve that end? The Minister's...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Veterinary Medicines (15 Jul 2021)

Michael McNamara: This Topical Issue was originally put down by Deputy Nolan. I thank the Ceann Comhairle for allowing me to pursue this in her stead given she could not be here due to unforeseen circumstances. I thank the Minister for coming here in person. None of us are too reluctant to criticise the fact that a senior Minister does not come in to answer Topical Issues so when the Minister is here, I...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (15 Jul 2021)

Michael McNamara: I join the Leas-Cheann Comhairle in thanking the staff of the Oireachtas. I also thank the staff of my constituency office, who have worked hard over the past 12 months.

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Common Agricultural Policy (15 Jul 2021)

Michael McNamara: I thank the Leas-Cheann Comhairle. Some of the Minister's responses to my constituency colleague have been a bit short on detail but that, in fairness, may well be because the detail is just being worked out. I also appreciate that the negotiations have only been concluded very recently. One of the things that the negotiations will allow is more co-funding being put into Pillar 2 and...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Agriculture Industry (15 Jul 2021)

Michael McNamara: The Minister mentioned Britain being a third country. One of the biggest effects of that is that it is free to negotiate deals with other countries. What impact, if any, does the Department foresee from the deal Britain has concluded with Australia, particularly concerning the importation of beef and the possible displacement of Irish produce? If Irish produce is to be displaced in Britain...

Health (Amendment) (No.2) Bill 2021: Second Stage (14 Jul 2021)

Michael McNamara: I am a little lost for words with regard to where we are now and where we are going. I worry about where we are going, whether there is a bottom line and whether the Minister has a bottom line as to what he is willing to implement. It appears that he and the Government do not. I asked the Taoiseach today if there were circumstances in which civil disobedience was acceptable, given that he...
