European Communities (Brexit) Bill 2017: Second Stage [Private Members] (17 May 2018)

Simon Coveney: I shall respond to what has been said and I will also speak about the current state of play in the negotiations. We all have an obligation to be cautious. What we are seeing is a permanent new reality in the relationships between Ireland and the UK and between the UK and the EU. Given the interwoven nature of the relationship between Ireland and Britain, from an economic perspective in...

European Communities (Brexit) Bill 2017: Second Stage [Private Members] (17 May 2018)

Gerry Adams: I was quite surprised at the tone of Deputy Lisa Chambers' remarks earlier. I can only presume the Deputy is trying to stake her claim to the strategy of Deputy Micheál Martin, which is to attack Sinn Féin at every single opportunity. Deputy Chambers started her contribution by saying she was not sure why we are here discussing this Bill. I know why I am here. I respect the...

European Communities (Brexit) Bill 2017: Second Stage [Private Members] (17 May 2018)

Lisa Chambers: I welcome the opportunity for a discussion on Brexit. While the Bill is specific, it provides us with an opportunity to discuss the wider implications of Brexit and how matters are progressing. Fianna Fáil is not supporting this Sinn Féin Bill that would compel the Government to report to the Oireachtas on negotiations regarding the UK's intention to withdraw from the European...

European Communities (Brexit) Bill 2017: Second Stage [Private Members] (17 May 2018)

David Cullinane: The Bill seeks to amend the European Communities Act 1972 and requires the Government to update the Oireachtas formally on Brexit developments and negotiations and on preserving the rights of Irish citizens in the North. As Teachta Adams said, we acknowledge the Government has in recent times agreed and followed through on its commitment to update the House on a regular basis. The...

European Communities (Brexit) Bill 2017: Second Stage [Private Members] (17 May 2018)

Simon Coveney: I welcome the opportunity to set out the Government’s views on the Bill. First, I assure the Deputy of the Government’s support for what I interpret as the underlying spirit of this Bill, which is the need for frequent and fruitful engagement between the Government and the Oireachtas on all issues relating to Brexit. The Government recognises this in principle and, more...

European Communities (Brexit) Bill 2017: Second Stage [Private Members] (17 May 2018)

European Communities (Brexit) Bill 2017: Second Stage [Private Members] (17 May 2018)

Gerry Adams: I move that: "The Bill be now read a Second Time." I wish to share time with Deputy Cullinane. This Bill was originally introduced in February 2017. Its objective was to ensure that the Government would keep the Oireachtas regularly informed of all developments during the Brexit negotiations. That it has taken so long for this Bill to get this far is evidence of the constipated state of the...

Topical Issue Debate: Mental Health Services Staff (17 May 2018)

James Browne: While I appreciate that the Minister of State, Deputy Jim Daly, could not attend this discussion, the appointment of non-qualified medical personnel as consultants is a matter for the Minister for Health, Deputy Simon Harris, notwithstanding that the focus of the discussion is on psychiatric consultants. The dangerous practice I have highlighted has been described as scandalous by the...

Topical Issue Debate: Mental Health Services Staff (17 May 2018)

Catherine Byrne: I do not have anything to add to Deputy Browne's contribution. I took a note of his concern that some of the consultants in situare not suitably qualified and I will convey his concern to the Minister of State, Deputy Daly, and the senior Minister. I will also inform them of the concerns the Deputy raised regarding matters that have arisen in recent weeks in the area of smear testing. I...

Topical Issue Debate: Services for People with Disabilities (17 May 2018)

Joan Collins: I raised this issue with the Taoiseach last year during Leaders' Questions. It was thrown aside. I was told that what I had said was not the case and that it was not happening in St. John of God. I was told the children were getting the services. I followed up with parliamentary questions. Emma O'Kelly did a detailed report into this. It has been shown that St. John of God,...
