Mary Butler: I apologise for stepping out during the debate but the national broadcaster is interested in this Bill and I had to nip out to be interviewed on it.

The Minister of State said that the Department is carrying out a review of safety at funfairs which is expected to be finalised and a report produced within the next few months,...

Health and Safety (Funfair) (Amendment) Bill 2017: Second Stage [Private Members] (13 Jun 2019)

Anne Rabbitte: I welcome the Minister of State's support for the Bill. My speech is well tethered as a result of his expression of support. Like anyone else who watched the episode of "Prime Time" which has been mentioned, I was shocked to learn that this sector is not governed by any rules or regulations. I compliment my colleague, Deputy Collins, on the introduction of a speedy response to what he...

Health and Safety (Funfair) (Amendment) Bill 2017: Second Stage [Private Members] (13 Jun 2019)

John Paul Phelan: We can take action on any legislative proposals or administrative changes that are required by the end of the year as long as the review I spoke about in my first contribution is finalised by then. We hope to have the review finalised in the next couple of months. It is not accurate to suggest that there are no rules and regulations. The issue that has emerged relates to the level of...

Health and Safety (Funfair) (Amendment) Bill 2017: Second Stage [Private Members] (13 Jun 2019)

Louise O'Reilly: I am speaking on behalf of my colleague, Deputy Quinlivan, who cannot attend. I thank Deputy Niall Collins and his colleagues for introducing this important Bill, which seeks to impose on funfair operators a legal duty not to injure a person intentionally and a new duty not to act with reckless disregard for a person at a funfair in respect of any danger that exists there. Such a breach...

Health and Safety (Funfair) (Amendment) Bill 2017: Second Stage [Private Members] (13 Jun 2019)

John Paul Phelan: I thank Deputy Butler who is right in her comments about her own experience of Tramore which is in her constituency. When I was young, which seems like a long time ago, for many in south Kilkenny Tramore was the hurdy-gurdies and it remains true to this day. I also thank Deputy Collins for drafting this Bill we are discussing this evening. It shines a light on the very important issue of...

John Paul Phelan: Which road is that on?

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Regeneration Projects Funding (13 Jun 2019)

Alan Kelly: It is off the roundabout on the Limerick road. It is a fantastic building. IDA Ireland officials have it on their list and officials in Enterprise Ireland are aware of it. Considerable work has gone into it. The point is to get investment into Tipperary town following this work, especially through IDA Ireland. Limerick gets so many jobs, and I welcome that as a mid-west person, but...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Regeneration Projects Funding (13 Jun 2019)

John Paul Phelan: I confirm for the Deputy that the Department will provide financial assistance to the council. As I understand it, the assistance will be in line with the submission received. The details will be communicated to the council first but they should be communicated to the wider public as soon as possible thereafter. I could not agree more with the Deputy about Tipperary - this coming from a...

Health and Safety (Funfair) (Amendment) Bill 2017: Second Stage [Private Members] (13 Jun 2019)

Mary Butler: I move: "That the Bill be now read a Second Time."

The Bill will give statutory effect to the Health and Safety Authority, HSA, to ensure the compliance of funfair operators with health and safety provisions. ...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: National Children's Hospital (13 Jun 2019)

Catherine Byrne: I do not know of any project in the time of this Government or the last, or the one before that, that did not exceed some of its costs. The Government and the Minister for Health have given a commitment that every precaution will be taken to reduce the risk of inflation. Ultimately, when this is completed we will have an excellent hospital, probably one of the best in Europe if not the...
