Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (22 Jun 2021)

Regina Doherty: I thank the Cathaoirleach and colleagues. Senator Cummins raised an issue that beggars belief. First of all, I do not actually believe we are building very many two-bedroom houses in our social housing stock. It makes no sense to put two small children, whether they are the same sex or not, in one bedroom when one knows full well that in a number of years that bedroom will not be...

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Travel Documents (21 Jun 2021)

Regina Doherty: I thank the Minister of State for his attendance in the House this morning to discuss this matter. I wish to raise the importance of Ireland’s implementation of the EU digital Covid certificate, or what we used to call the EU green certificate. As we are all aware, the Government has signed up to the EU Covid certificate with a start date of July 19, albeit two weeks later than the...

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Travel Documents (21 Jun 2021)

Regina Doherty: I thank the Minister of State. Respectfully, I have no doubt about ours or the Minister of State's intent but he has told me that we are still at design stage. I asked the question of how somebody would even apply. Are we going to log on to a website? Obviously, that has not been decided yet. These are the issues. How will it work? How will Irish citizens apply for a certificate? Who...

Seanad: Gnó an tSeanaid - Business of Seanad (21 Jun 2021)

Regina Doherty: The Cathaoirleach is a mine of information. I did not even know that there were GAA clubs or a branch of Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann in Luxembourg.

Seanad: Gnó an tSeanaid - Business of Seanad (21 Jun 2021)

Regina Doherty: Hear, hear.

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (21 Jun 2021)

Regina Doherty: I could not add anything to the very eloquent contribution made by Senator Currie and the demand that she correctly made. The island belongs to all of us and all of our identities should be respected. I thank Senator McGreehan for the information she provided on the Sickle Cell Society Ireland and the sickle cell disease. I have learned something this morning. While I do not wish to...

Seanad: Eleventh Report of Committee on Parliamentary Privileges and Oversight: Motion (21 Jun 2021)

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (15 Jun 2021)

Regina Doherty: That is a lovely suggestion from Senator Ward. I am not sure whether we should just send a letter to the Department. I will try to arrange a debate but collectively we might initially send a letter to the relevant Minister to ask him for his opinion on the suggestion. We can wait for his response and see what comes back. Senator Chambers, among others who I will name as I come to them on...

Seanad: Sitting Arrangements: Motion (15 Jun 2021)

Regina Doherty: I move: (1) That, notwithstanding anything in the Standing Orders relative to Public Business, the Seanad on its rising on Tuesday, 15th June, 2021, shall adjourn until 9.30 a.m. on Friday, 18th June, 2021, in the Dáil Chamber, and unless otherwise ordered, the following arrangements shall apply: (a) Standing Orders 29 and 30 shall stand suspended; (b) there shall be no Order of...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (14 Jun 2021)

Regina Doherty: I thank my colleagues and join them in expressing good wishes to Ann and Mary. I thank them for all of their service and wish them a healthy and happy retirement, which will hopefully be very long. Senator Paddy Burke asked me to ask the Taoiseach to come in. I will certainly make the request but I suggest it would probably be more appropriate if the Minister comes to talk to us today. I...

Regina Doherty: I move: That, pursuant to subsection 2° of section 2 of Article 25 of the Constitution, Seanad Éireann concurs with the Government in a request to the President to sign the Health and Criminal Justice (Covid-19) (Amendment) Bill 2021 on a date which is earlier than the fifth day after the date on which the Bill shall have been presented to him.”

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (1 Jun 2021)

Regina Doherty: I thank the Cathaoirleach. My family tells me that we are of Norman descent from Denmark and that we arrived in the 8th century. Very many happy returns today. The Order of Business is No. 1, motion regarding the arrangements for the sitting of the House on Friday, 4 June 2021, to be taken on completion of the Order of Business, without debate; and No. 2, Maritime Jurisdiction Bill 2021 -...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (1 Jun 2021)

Regina Doherty: I am happy to accept the amendment to the Order of Business to take No. 19 before No. 1. I thank the two Senators and wish them every success. I hope they receive a widespread support and get their legislation passed. Other colleagues have asked me to organise statements on the national economic development plan, which includes the recovery and resilience strategy's financing from the...
