Seanad: Harassment, Harmful Communications and Related Offences Bill 2017: Committee and Remaining Stages (18 Dec 2020)

Regina Doherty: I am showing my ignorance but can the Minister of State explain that to me in English? Did I read it the wrong way around? I read it as saying that we are taking out "communicating with or about him or her" and putting in "communicating with him or her". It is the other way around. I thank the Minister of State. That is good to know.

Seanad: Harassment, Harmful Communications and Related Offences Bill 2017: Committee and Remaining Stages (18 Dec 2020)

Regina Doherty: Will the Minister of State explain to me what the legislation means by the words "anytime within two years from the date on which the offence was committed"? On the face of it, I agree with amendment No. 21, if my understanding is that the date the offence was committed is the date that someone sold an image to Pornhub rather than the date I found out my image was on Pornhub. In the view of...

Seanad: Harassment, Harmful Communications and Related Offences Bill 2017: Committee and Remaining Stages (18 Dec 2020)

Regina Doherty: I believe all Members have been contacted by Safe Ireland, which expressed disappointment that the section was removed yesterday. This year has been unprecedented in so many ways, but particularly for the victims of domestic violence. The Garda, Safe Ireland and other agencies have done a sterling job, as has the Government in the context of tweaking schemes to ensure that we try to look...

Seanad: Harassment, Harmful Communications and Related Offences Bill 2017: Committee and Remaining Stages (18 Dec 2020)

Regina Doherty: Does one know then, if it is up to the court to interpret whether the offence against me is serious, whether it might be a different level of seriousness as for Senator Ruane? Is there a definition of serious or is it that each case is taken on its merits and that the people who happen to receive the information on a Monday determine what serious is on a Monday while different sets of...

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Schools Building Projects (17 Dec 2020)

Regina Doherty: I thank the Minister of State for coming to the Seanad to discuss this issue. I compliment her on the work she has done in recent months. It is truly refreshing to see the proactivity and the new approach that is being taken in the Department with regard to specials needs. I wish her every success. I know the Seanad will continue to support her. I wish to raise the issue of the urgent...

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Schools Building Projects (17 Dec 2020)

Regina Doherty: It is heartwarming to hear how much attention and personal commitment the Minister of State will give this matter. One can see from the level of detail and ambition that has been put into the design in stage 1 of the process how ambitious the staff, the families and the community are for the students in this school. Of course we want the absolute best for our children. We want to be able...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (17 Dec 2020)

Regina Doherty: The only thing I can say to Senator Gallagher is that I concur with his request. It is a terrible shame that there are so many families in the same situation as the Sheehan and Kelly families. I will convey the Senator's request to the Taoiseach. I am in the happy position of being able to tell Senator Conway that on our first week back in the new year a debate is scheduled with the...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (16 Dec 2020)

Regina Doherty: I thank my colleagues. I will work backwards, if that is okay. Senator Carrigy and another Senator brought up the non-uniform nature of the rules around maternity services for couples in Ireland over the past couple of months. The Senators are right. The decision to allow partners go to the 20-week anomaly scan is welcome but, speaking from experience as someone who has done it a number...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (16 Dec 2020)

Regina Doherty: Of course.

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (16 Dec 2020)

Regina Doherty: To be fair, I do not take it personally at all. I want the Senator to know it is not a Government thing. There is not a sledgehammer from anybody across the way saying we have to do this. I felt we wanted to do this this week and I think the Senator is being slightly disingenuous to the people who will make contributions on Friday. It will not lessen our view, our scrutiny, our wish and...
