Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (12 May 2021)

Colm Burke: In 2016, I introduced the Civil Law (Missing Persons) Bill 2016. There is one part of the jigsaw missing in this area, namely, a central database for unidentified human remains that are found. We have had a number of cases in the past few years, such as the recent case of the late Denis Walsh in Galway. Mr. Walsh's remains were found in 1996 but the family was not informed until 2021 - 25...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Updates on Breastfeeding: Discussion (12 May 2021)

Colm Burke: I thank our guests for their presentation and the work they are doing in this area. I am married to someone who has worked in maternity services for many years, so I have for 25 years been getting a daily briefing on the challenges in the maternity services. To give an example of where we have come from, when my wife was applying for a job in Dublin many years ago, she was asked how she...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Updates on Breastfeeding: Discussion (12 May 2021)

Colm Burke: I wonder is it a case that someone gives advice in the morning and whether there is a note put in? Is it a case that there are not proper follow-up notes put in place. For instance, that if nurse A or whoever is attending - whether it be a doctor or a nurse - giving advices, sets out on a chart what advice was given so that whoever comes on at 8 p.m. will know exactly the line that was...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Updates on Breastfeeding: Discussion (12 May 2021)

Colm Burke: I have only one minute left. Pacify, which is a company based in the US, is looking to come to Ireland where it is offering 24-hour support to women who want to breastfeed. Obviously, it sees a gap in the market in Ireland if it wants to come in. In relation to support if a mother has a difficulty, say, at 10 p.m., and she is at home, what range of services are available for someone at...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Updates on Breastfeeding: Discussion (12 May 2021)

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Updates on Breastfeeding: Discussion (12 May 2021)

Public Accounts Committee: Financial Statements and Accounts (11 May 2021)

Colm Burke: I agree with Deputy Catherine Murphy. I am concerned when something like this is allowed to drag on. I wonder whether the other side is just hoping the OPW will go away. This is what it sounds like to me. The OPW should be trying to put a timeline on this because there is no timeline here, which concerns me.

Public Accounts Committee: Financial Statements and Accounts (11 May 2021)

Colm Burke: We should ask it to come back to us within a specific period of time. Will we still be discussing this in December or this time next year? We should set out that the OPW would come back to us within a specific period of time.

Public Accounts Committee: Financial Statements and Accounts (11 May 2021)

Colm Burke: I believe we are losing the plot here. The builders have a responsibility, but the local authorities have a responsibility as well. For example, if one contacts a local authority and asks for a register of estates that are not taken in charge, I guarantee one would not be able to get that register. I am dealing with a local authority at present. I wrote to the local authority and I was...

Public Accounts Committee: Financial Statements and Accounts (11 May 2021)

Colm Burke: Perhaps we should write to the Department on this to find out what information it is getting from local authorities about estates not taken in charge at this stage.

Public Accounts Committee: Financial Statements and Accounts (11 May 2021)

Colm Burke: This is an issue I have been dealing with in the past month. To get a letter from the local authority which states that it is dealing with this since 2008 does not make sense.

Public Accounts Committee: Financial Statements and Accounts (11 May 2021)

Colm Burke: We should also look to the Department to get that information for us.
