Report of Joint Committee on Gender Equality: Motion (29 Feb 2024)

Ivana Bacik: Yes. I thank the Minister for his comprehensive and helpful overview of the work that has been done following on from the publication of our report. I thank Deputy Cronin and the Minister for their kind words. It seems we are all in the revolution together. Whatever about a woman’s place being in the revolution, I am struck by the old slogan, “A woman’s place is in...

Report of Joint Committee on Gender Equality: Motion (29 Feb 2024)

Roderic O'Gorman: I hope Deputy Cronin might extend an old cupán tae to me as well during the revolution, because I certainly would like to be a part of assisting it.

Report of Joint Committee on Gender Equality: Motion (29 Feb 2024)

Réada Cronin: Of course.

Report of Joint Committee on Gender Equality: Motion (29 Feb 2024)

Roderic O'Gorman: I want to begin by welcoming all present for our debate on the joint committee's report Unfinished Democracy: Achieving Gender Equality. As both Deputies have already described, the overarching goal of the report is to achieve gender equality within our society by means of a variety of targeted actions. That goal is also a key tenet of my Department's mission. This is outlined in our...

Report of Joint Committee on Gender Equality: Motion (29 Feb 2024)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: Since only three Members are present, I wonder whether it would be appropriate to hear Deputy Cronin now and then ask the Minister to take his two slots together in responding. Do the Members want to proceed as normal?

Report of Joint Committee on Gender Equality: Motion (29 Feb 2024)

Réada Cronin: I noticed when looking at the calendar that we would be discussing the report on gender equality on 29 February, the extra day in the leap year when a woman generally had the gender-equality option of proposing to her man. We have come a long way but we have a long way to go for ourselves, our sisters and our daughters, and indeed their daughters. We will not and must never stop in our push...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Environmental Policy (29 Feb 2024)

Barry Cowen: I thank the Minister of State for his response and the clarity associated with it. It is imperative in light of the reaction by some to what was agreed this week that the Government clearly state in this House that any scheme will be voluntary, we can meet our commitment from State lands, anybody who does not participate will not be impacted in respect of their single farm payment, and this...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Environmental Policy (29 Feb 2024)

Jack Chambers: I reiterate that while we support the ambition, we are fully committed to ensuring farmers will be key actors in the development and delivery of the wider nature restoration plan. The Deputy is correct that we need to have a partnership approach, with Government working with the farming community and the agricultural sector. If we look across Europe at how certain countries have managed...

I am grateful for the opportunity to move the motion and speak today on this important report. I am honoured to be addressing the House as...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: International Protection (29 Feb 2024)

Roderic O'Gorman: The Deputy speaks of a cooling-off period as if these are easy decisions that our Department is taking in a normal time. Again, we are responding to a humanitarian crisis and imminent homelessness. We have already seen that we are unable to provide accommodation for more than 1,000 male applicants as of today. We are close to being in that situation with families and female applicants as...
