Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (3 Dec 2020)

Regina Doherty: There are plenty of issues for me to respond to today. I thank colleagues for all of the items raised which I propose to respond to working backwards.

I will ask the Minister to come to the House for that debate but there is probably a variety...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (3 Dec 2020)

Regina Doherty: I am sorry, I misunderstood that. Again, I genuinely do not believe that people know that the committee is meeting every single day. Most Oireachtas committees meet once a week and some meet only once a fortnight. It is a huge onus on all of us to make sure that everybody knows there is a huge volume of work being done. That is especially the case in a week when we see the reports spoken...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (1 Dec 2020)

Regina Doherty: I thank the Cathaoirleach. I am very happy to accept the amendment to the Order of Business and we can take No. 24, motion 8, before No. 1.

The time will be difficult for us between now and Christmas but I agree with a...

Regina Doherty: I thank the Minister of State for coming in this afternoon and giving of his time to not only update us and listen to what I hope will be constructive suggestions that genuinely will taken on board. There is no doubt - I certainly hope - that the world is living through a once-in-a-generation crisis. From when that crisis started to become a daily occurrence for all of us last March, we...

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Health Services Reform (25 Nov 2020)

Regina Doherty: I thank the Minister of State for his attendance in the Seanad this morning to discuss this issue. It is hugely important to the transgender community in Ireland, as well as their families, friends and supporters.

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (25 Nov 2020)

Regina Doherty: I will first address the proposed amendment to the Order of Business and ask for the guidance of the Senator concerned. I can offer two choices. I cannot accept his amendment today only because I do not have a Minister available for a 45-minute debate. I can propose that No. 1 on the agenda be withdrawn and rescheduled for next Wednesday or I can ask the Senator to allow No. 1 to go ahead...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (25 Nov 2020)

Regina Doherty: I thank Senator Mullen. If the schedule that I will issue this afternoon does not have it listed, then I will make sure to add it on. I thank colleagues for the number of issues that have been raised today. The Tusla report that was raised gives rise to concerns, particularly when the concerns themselves are being expressed and shared by Tusla. It would be very apt to invite in the...
