Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (11 May 2021)

Regina Doherty: A wide variety of topics have been raised for discussion. In response to Senator Maria Byrne's matter, I have requested a debate with the Minister for Health on the ongoing vaccination programme. It is quite disheartening to hear that the two people the Senator brought to this House’s attention last week still have not even had contact. I do not know if my office can be of any...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (10 May 2021)

Regina Doherty: The Order of Business is No. 1, statements on the future of banking in Ireland, to be taken at 1.30 p.m. and to conclude at 3.30 p.m., with the opening contribution of the Minister not to exceed ten minutes, the contributions of group spokespersons not to exceed eight minutes and those of all other Senators not to exceed five minutes, and the Minister to be given not less than ten minutes to...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (10 May 2021)

Regina Doherty: I thank the Chairperson and colleagues. Senator McGahon is looking like a new man today and he has set the bar for all of us to achieve over the next couple of weeks. Some of us are looking forward to a haircut more than others, perhaps. The Senator made a very valid point. We spend more time sometimes looking at and researching issues than actually doing them, which tends to be...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (7 May 2021)

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (7 May 2021)

Regina Doherty: There have been three requests to amend the Order of Business. To clarify, I can accept the Labour Party's amendment and that of Fine Gael. I am not sure if Senator Boylan meant to finish her statement that she would like the Bill taken after the Order of Business.I cannot take the Bill after the Order of Business but I can have it added to the Order of Business and taken later today, if...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (7 May 2021)

Regina Doherty: I do not have an issue with that but there are people with heartbreaking stories on each side who will have been retraumatised by the announcements made yesterday.

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (7 May 2021)

Regina Doherty: It is not acceptable and I look forward to the debate on the Private Members' motion Fianna Fáil has tabled for Monday evening. It will give everyone an opportunity to say how they feel and how disgusted we would be by such unilateral action, which we will not tolerate. Senator Joe O'Reilly raised the need for a debate on the future of banking. I am lucky in that I am in a position to...

Seanad: European Digital Green Certificate: Statements (7 May 2021)

Regina Doherty: I thank the Minister of State for coming to take this debate today because it was difficult to get. I appreciate that although the Department of Foreign Affairs is not responsible for rolling out the digital green certificate, he is here to represent the Government's views. I am genuinely appreciative of that so nothing that I say is personal to him. I want to make some remarks about...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (30 Apr 2021)

Regina Doherty: I would have opened the proceedings today by expressing all our condolences to our colleague Senator Mullen but I was not aware of his loss. I apologise for that. On behalf of every Member of this House, I wish him well in what must be a horrific loss after his daddy passing away. I express our condolences to him and his entire family. I wish Senator Cummins well with his meeting today....

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (30 Apr 2021)

Regina Doherty: I can do that today, that is no problem. I do not know why our procurement clause do not have a clause such as that suggested by the Senator. Any State-sponsored or State-supported company must have a minimum standard of engagement with its employees and it certainly sounds as if the example the Senator gave us this morning is falling far short of that. I will send the Senator a copy of...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (26 Apr 2021)

Regina Doherty: Happy Koningsdag also to your good self. I thank the Cathaoirleach for raising it this morning. Anyone who knows my part of the world will know there are fields and fields of beautiful tulips in Rush and the areas surrounding Rush. Once we get out of our 20 km zone and when inter-county travel convenes again, people might go to have a look. It is beautiful. The Order of Business No. 1,...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (26 Apr 2021)

Regina Doherty: I thank my colleagues. I agree with Senator Martin that now is not the time for a poll. However, what it absolutely is time for, and I do not think there has ever been a better time, is to start having the conversation with each other, those of us with opposing views, as to what we would like to see in a shared island and what the potential opportunities and, indeed, perhaps some of the...

Seanad: Sitting Arrangements: Motion (26 Apr 2021)

Regina Doherty: I move: That, notwithstanding anything in the Standing Orders relative to Public Business, the Seanad on its rising on Monday, 26th April, 2021, shall adjourn until 10 a.m. on Friday, 30th April, 2021, in the Dáil Chamber, and unless otherwise ordered, the following arrangements shall apply: (a) Statements on Business and Covid-19.

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (19 Apr 2021)

Regina Doherty: I thank colleagues for raising a wide variety of topics. I could not agree more with Senator Wall. I read with interest this morning our plans to ban the current practice of bookies being able to ask people to come in and bet, on a reduced number of numbers, on either a EuroMillions or a weekly lotto draw. It is very welcome. The national lottery, as an organisation, does tremendous good....
