Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (19 Sep 2019)

Peter Fitzpatrick: The Government promised to end the sale of petrol and diesel cars by 2030 and to introduce over 1 million electrically propelled vehicles by 2030. In the past 12 months, the number of electric vehicles has doubled. The function of the ESB's ecars programme, which was introduced in 2010, is to hasten the introduction of 1 million electric vehicles and to move transport away from the dirt,...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Justice, Defence and Equality: Garda Reform and Related Issues: Discussion (18 Sep 2019)

Peter Fitzpatrick: I welcome Commissioner Harris and his team. I am delighted that their mission for the next three years is to keep people safe. There was a serious incident in Blackrock, Dundalk, at approximately 2.50 p.m. on 10 August. A 93 year old man was working in his garden when another man walked up and asked him for some water. The elderly man went to his back garden to get the water and the other...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Justice, Defence and Equality: Garda Reform and Related Issues: Discussion (18 Sep 2019)

Peter Fitzpatrick: I am not referring to the specific case that is before the courts. The family asked me what procedures are in place or what will be done to prevent this from happening to other families. My question has nothing to do with the court case.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Justice, Defence and Equality: Garda Reform and Related Issues: Discussion (18 Sep 2019)

Peter Fitzpatrick: The Commissioner talks about protecting the people and improving data to enhance the Garda's ability to do so. He talks about reducing crime and responding to threats. He also talks about confronting those involved in organised crime. I thank him for the help he has given to the people of Drogheda over recent months. Drogheda has been through a very bad period and An Garda...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Justice, Defence and Equality: Garda Reform and Related Issues: Discussion (18 Sep 2019)

Peter Fitzpatrick: In the UK, the Lord Chancellor appointed a chief coroner who has a full range of powers to drive up standards. What is the view of the Garda on how the coroner service in Ireland could be more proactive in assisting in efforts to identify remains found in each coroner's jurisdiction? Would it be beneficial for coroners to continue to be actively involved in reviewing cases and to become...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Justice, Defence and Equality: Garda Reform and Related Issues: Discussion (18 Sep 2019)

Peter Fitzpatrick: I would like to talk about the new divisional model. As the Commissioner knows, I come from Louth. Many people there are very concerned about the new changes. Will Louth and Monaghan lose their divisional headquarters to Mullingar? This question is often asked. Will sufficient resources be available to cover the whole expanded area? Will local Garda districts still be headed by a...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Justice, Defence and Equality: Garda Reform and Related Issues: Discussion (18 Sep 2019)

Peter Fitzpatrick: I have asked the Minister for Justice and Equality, Deputy Flanagan, many times about the upgrading of Dromad Garda station on the Border. It will play a vital role, regardless of whether Brexit goes ahead. Does Mr. Harris have an update? I know that the Garda station was bought a number of years ago. It is located just off the motorway. Given how Dundalk has grown so rapidly in recent...

To ask the Minister for Housing, Planning, and Local Government his plans to ensure that all the rights in the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights are fully respected and promoted in all the actions of his mandate; and the steps he will take to help remedy the housing crisis in Europe. [37899/19]

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Justice, Defence and Equality: Garda Reform and Related Issues: Discussion (18 Sep 2019)

Peter Fitzpatrick: I thank the Commissioner for his response. I invite him to visit the Blackrock area when he is next in Dundalk and see what kind of community it is. It is a beautiful community that does not deserve this kind of publicity. The good news is that the person who was stabbed has made a recovery and he and his wife have moved back into their house. It would be nice if the Garda Commissioner...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: N52 Ardee Bypass: Discussion (18 Sep 2019)

Peter Fitzpatrick: I thank the representatives from TII and Louth County Council for being here today. The Ardee bypass project has been on the agenda for a very long time. It is situated on the N52 and runs for 4.5 km. Funding of €34 million has been allocated and the people of Ardee, including shop owners, cannot wait for it to happen. In 2005 planning permission was granted, in 2006 a CPO was...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: N52 Ardee Bypass: Discussion (18 Sep 2019)

Peter Fitzpatrick: Yes, but the statement by TII asserts that the project could be delayed for 12 to 18 months, if not two years, but the public is being led to believe that it will go ahead. There is no-----

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: N52 Ardee Bypass: Discussion (18 Sep 2019)

Peter Fitzpatrick: I would like be wrong about this but I do not know how anyone can guarantee this project, given the current situation. The Chairman has been in the Dáil for the last number of years along with myself and other colleagues. He will agree that nobody knows what will happen in the context of Brexit. Nobody knows what is going to happen with regard to the children's hospital or the...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: N52 Ardee Bypass: Discussion (18 Sep 2019)

Peter Fitzpatrick: Mr. Walsh made a comment to the effect that he does not see any reason for it to be delayed. If he is going to make such a comment then I am going to make a comment on the economy because nobody knows what will happen. He said that he does not see any reason for it not to go ahead but nobody knows. There is no point in us leaving this room and telling people in Ardee that the bypass will...
