Just Transition (Worker and Community Environmental Rights) Bill 2018: Second Stage [Private Members] (19 Sep 2019)

Richard Bruton: I thank the Deputies who participated in the debate. There is a great deal of consensus in the House to have proper systems of consultation; workers protected; evaluation of new opportunities in the decarbonised economy and enterprise agencies supporting those; development of appropriate skills and reskilling of people who need to be re-skilled; funding set aside to support not just...

Just Transition (Worker and Community Environmental Rights) Bill 2018: Second Stage [Private Members] (19 Sep 2019)

Eamon Ryan: I could not agree more with the Minister. Debate is healthy. It is the lifeblood of this place and the voters decide. We will put it to the people. I think I have my poster designed for the upcoming election, which is not that far away. It will be a quote from the Minister's earlier contribution to the debate when he said, "This goes way beyond what is envisaged." It does because we...

Just Transition (Worker and Community Environmental Rights) Bill 2018: Second Stage [Private Members] (19 Sep 2019)

Bernard Durkan: Three ten-minute slots and a five-minute slot remain. I must call on the Minister for a five-minute slot at 7.15 p.m., followed by the closing contribution.

Just Transition (Worker and Community Environmental Rights) Bill 2018: Second Stage [Private Members] (19 Sep 2019)

Paul Murphy: I will try to do it in five minutes. With the most politeness I can muster, I have to say that the Minister has a brass neck. The response in the previous debate we had was to say to us, "Sure, you have no concrete proposals. You just want to get rid of capitalism. You've been banging on about that forever. You want socialism; of course, you do." He would say that, ignoring all the...

Just Transition (Worker and Community Environmental Rights) Bill 2018: Second Stage [Private Members] (19 Sep 2019)

Bernard Durkan: We have about seven minutes before I need to call the Minister.

Just Transition (Worker and Community Environmental Rights) Bill 2018: Second Stage [Private Members] (19 Sep 2019)

Michael Harty: I think I will come in under that. I support the Bill, which has relevance to my constituency. I was struck by the comment that there are no jobs on a dead planet, which is very evocative. There is no green economy unless there are rewards for workers and communities that make this happen. There needs to be support for communities that lose their fossil fuel industries. This is the...

Just Transition (Worker and Community Environmental Rights) Bill 2018: Second Stage [Private Members] (19 Sep 2019)

Bernard Durkan: Four speakers remain and there will also be a response from the Minister. There is 39 minutes remaining for the debate. I do not want to curtail anybody but I want this to be borne in mind. The proposer must also speak again, as must the Minister, with ten minutes and five minutes respectively.

Just Transition (Worker and Community Environmental Rights) Bill 2018: Second Stage [Private Members] (19 Sep 2019)

Seán Sherlock: I do not intend to take my full allocation of time. I rise to support the Bill. The Labour Party unambiguously supports the Bill and we welcome it. We believe that given the level of correspondence we have received on the issue and the level of engagement we have had on it, particularly with the trade union movement, the Bill is timely and worthy of our support. I respectfully take issue...

Just Transition (Worker and Community Environmental Rights) Bill 2018: Second Stage [Private Members] (19 Sep 2019)

Barry Cowen: I thank the Green Party for bringing forward this Bill. As my colleagues said, we support its thrust and acknowledge that it builds on the commitment given by the all-party committee. We will seek to play our part, as will many others, in debate, change and alteration in order that, by agreement, we can arrive at a conclusion and move forward to address the issues. Everyone here realises...

Just Transition (Worker and Community Environmental Rights) Bill 2018: Second Stage [Private Members] (19 Sep 2019)

Denis Naughten: I welcome the fact that this discussion on a just transition is taking place. I thank the Green Party for tabling this legislation to facilitate it. It is important that any discussion about a just transition is based on reality. The failure to recognise the basic reality of the climate issues and their impact on the ground, and to constructively engage with communities, has in large part...

Just Transition (Worker and Community Environmental Rights) Bill 2018: Second Stage [Private Members] (19 Sep 2019)

Carol Nolan: I acknowledge the hard work of the Green Party in drafting and bringing forward this Bill. As a representative of a county in the midlands, I am only too aware of the challenges posed by a failure to progress adequately the process of a just transition to a decarbonised economy. I am also aware of the frustration of my constituents in west Offaly where the future of the power station there...

Just Transition (Worker and Community Environmental Rights) Bill 2018: Second Stage [Private Members] (19 Sep 2019)

David Cullinane: I welcome this Bill, which Sinn Féin will be supporting. I commend the Green Party Deputies who proposed the Bill and I join Deputy Catherine Martin in commending Sinéad Mercier on her Trojan work on the Bill and in the area of just transition. It is a little depressing that even before most of us have made our contributions to this debate, the Minister has signalled that the...

Just Transition (Worker and Community Environmental Rights) Bill 2018: Second Stage [Private Members] (19 Sep 2019)

Paul Murphy: The Government does not have the courage to vote against it.

Just Transition (Worker and Community Environmental Rights) Bill 2018: Second Stage [Private Members] (19 Sep 2019)

David Cullinane: The microgeneration Bill proposed by Sinn Féin and many others related to climate change and climate justice could be progressed by the Government but it refuses to allow them to do so. Before I get into the substance of the Bill, I will respond to some comments made by the Minister to the effect that he was confused by my earlier contribution to the debate on climate change...

Just Transition (Worker and Community Environmental Rights) Bill 2018: Second Stage [Private Members] (19 Sep 2019)

Robert Troy: Fianna Fáil supports the direction taken in this Bill. We are committed to protecting workers and communities as we decarbonise the economy. A climate crisis is unfolding and the State must decarbonise in a way that is not only sustainable but also fair, equitable and deliverable for the communities which stand to be most affected. Before discussing the Bill, I will address the context...

Just Transition (Worker and Community Environmental Rights) Bill 2018: Second Stage [Private Members] (19 Sep 2019)

Catherine Martin: Is cúis áthais dúinn í sa Chomhaontas Glas an Bille seo a thabhairt os comhair na Dála anocht. Climate change is the greatest threat we face and our response to it must be swift and far-reaching. It must also be socially just. There are no jobs on a dead planet, but there are green jobs in a new green economy. This Bill is designed to ensure that workers and...

Just Transition (Worker and Community Environmental Rights) Bill 2018: Second Stage [Private Members] (19 Sep 2019)

Richard Bruton: I thank the Deputies for presenting this Bill and I indicate to the House that I will not be opposing it on Second Stage. However, I will be pointing out a number of issues that will have to be closely considered before any money message could be granted for the Bill.

Just Transition (Worker and Community Environmental Rights) Bill 2018: Second Stage [Private Members] (19 Sep 2019)
