Mary Butler: I will be brief as I think it has all been said. I thank everyone for their contributions today and thank the Minister of State for remaining here for the whole debate. It was great to hear such a wide range of speakers. As Deputy Niall Collins said earlier, we are sometimes accused of being the do-nothing Dáil. However, a body of work is being done downstairs in the committee rooms...

Banded Hours Contract Bill 2016 Report: Motion (16 Nov 2017)

Pat Breen: I listened attentively to all the speakers. As I said, this report is very welcome and it is important to discuss this issue. It is a very important issue regarding banded hours contracts and measures to tackle problems caused by the increased casualisation of work. Our debate, first and foremost, must be placed in the context of the programme for Government commitment to tackle the...

Banded Hours Contract Bill 2016 Report: Motion (16 Nov 2017)

Bríd Smith: IBEC.

Banded Hours Contract Bill 2016 Report: Motion (16 Nov 2017)

Pat Breen: -----IBEC and all the main players. On the other hand, I believe the Government's Bill, which the Minister, Deputy Regina Doherty, is committed to publishing before Christmas, is a much more comprehensive response to the issue of casualisation of work and the strengthening of regulation of precarious work. The Bill will address a number of issues which have been identified as being areas...

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: Deputies Martin Kenny and Bríd Smith have agreed to share time.

Banded Hours Contract Bill 2016 Report: Motion (16 Nov 2017)

Martin Kenny: I compliment Deputy Cullinane on bringing forward the Banded Hours Contract Bill and thank the Members who did great work in both committees to develop the proposals set out in the Bill. I commend, in particular, the committee chaired by Deputy Mary Butler, which put a great deal of effort into enhancing the legislation. All that work has brought us to a place many of us thought we would...

Banded Hours Contract Bill 2016 Report: Motion (16 Nov 2017)

Bríd Smith: He got it wrong.

Banded Hours Contract Bill 2016 Report: Motion (16 Nov 2017)

Martin Kenny: Yes, he got it wrong in that Governments have not played that role. It is our job in this House to ensure the Government uses a firm hand now to make things better for the ordinary people who are going to work everyday and doing their best. Deputy Cullinane's Bill has been considerably amended and enhanced such that most Deputies are in agreement that it offers a way to put in place a...

Banded Hours Contract Bill 2016 Report: Motion (16 Nov 2017)

Bríd Smith: I thank Deputy Martin Kenny for sharing time. As we come up to Christmas, in areas like Ballyfermot, where I live, and other large working-class communities, moneylenders will be seen knocking on the doors of workers. In the past, they would have been trying the doors of the very poorest, those locked into long-term unemployment. This year, however, they will get a positive response from...

Banded Hours Contract Bill 2016 Report: Motion (16 Nov 2017)

Mick Barry: We would clear the House very quickly if that were to happen so I will spare the House that scenario. One of John's songs, which is played on the radio, is "The Dunnes Stores Girl". I do not know if it is possible to have a punch line in a song, but he says of the Dunnes Stores girl, on whom he has had his eye for a while, that "She rules my world". The point of the matter here is that the...

Banded Hours Contract Bill 2016 Report: Motion (16 Nov 2017)

Maurice Quinlivan: I acknowledge the vast amount of work Deputy Cullinane has put into this Bill. There is a very simple agenda behind this legislation, which is to give workers more security regarding the number of hours they work and the amount they are paid as a result. To give workers this small level of assurance and security is not a big ask. In fact, it begs the question as to why the current...

Banded Hours Contract Bill 2016 Report: Motion (16 Nov 2017)

Brian Stanley: I welcome the opportunity to contribute to the debate and I thank Deputy Cullinane for bringing forward the Bill that is the subject of this report. I also thank the committee for the work it did in putting forward suggested amendments and improvements. Over the past seven years, I have seen many items of legislation go through this House but few have been as necessary as this one, which...
