Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (18 Dec 2019)

Aindrias Moynihan: Staying with the situation with childcare providers, I want to raise a slight variation on the issue of registration. Last week, we discussed with the Minister the fact that over 200 childcare providers have not engaged in any way with the system while several hundred others had not completed registration. At that point, the Minister confirmed that they would not be in a position to be...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Passport Services (18 Dec 2019)

Aindrias Moynihan: I will try to keep to the allotted time. I am seeking to have the widest possible range of passport services made available to people in County Cork and the southern region such that, for example, they do not have to travel halfway across the country to Dublin to get a passport in an emergency, and then travel back to Cork. I understand the passport reform programme has been considering...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Passport Services (18 Dec 2019)

Aindrias Moynihan: The Tánaiste summed it up in his last few words: if one is dealing with the Passport Office in Dublin, one can get a passport on the day of the appointment, but if one is dealing with the office in Cork, one must wait three days to get a passport. In the interests of balanced regional development, I am seeking that a service be made available such that people would have access to the...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Passport Services (18 Dec 2019)

Aindrias Moynihan: I point out to the Tánaiste that Cork Airport has continued to grow and support the wider region. It has gone from 2.1 million passengers in 2015 to 2.4 million in the past year, with further connectivity to a hub in the Netherlands, as well as Paris. People want to use the south, including Cork Airport, as a gateway to travel around the world. Having a passport is crucial to such...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Passport Services (18 Dec 2019)

Aindrias Moynihan: There are two different types of passport, the standard passport and the one-journey passport. If one needs an ordinary passport in a hurry, it will take three days to get it from Cork. One-journey passports are available in the case of a bereavement or other unfortunate incident. To have the fullest possible service in the regions instead of it all being Dublin-based, the Tánaiste...

Aindrias Moynihan: Fáiltím roimh an deis labhairt ar an mBille seo agus fáiltím go bhfuil Bille os ár gcomhair ar deireadh. Foilsíodh na ceannteidil in 2017. Táimid ag feitheamh le fada an lá.

To ask the Tánaiste and Minister for Justice and Equality the number of persons assessed under the scheme to regularise the status of students who overstayed on visas in each of the years 2005 to 2010; the number regularised under the scheme; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

[53595/19]

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Defence Forces Remuneration (17 Dec 2019)

Aindrias Moynihan: I thank the Minister of State for outlining the various pay changes he proposes to introduce. Despite that, those leaving the Defence Forces continue to outnumber those who are joining. Morale is low. Action taken by the Minister of State does not seem to address the situation. There is still a net reduction in the number of serving members, which has again led to a Naval Service vessel...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Defence Forces Remuneration (17 Dec 2019)

Aindrias Moynihan: I wish to clarify that I did not put any particular figure on the amount the Minister of State is returning to the Exchequer or anywhere else. I pointed out that he is returning an amount in the order of millions. The €356,000 figure I cited relates to people buying out their service. That is where the profiteering is occurring. It is based on people leaving the Defence Forces in...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Defence Forces Remuneration (17 Dec 2019)

Aindrias Moynihan: The public is very proud of our Defence Forces, whose work includes peacekeeping roles, public service and so much more. We must ensure that these people are properly resourced, paid and respected. There is very low morale in the Defence Forces, with people leaving or unable to make ends meet. Can the Minister of State outline the various steps the Government will take to address these issues?

An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (17 Dec 2019)

Aindrias Moynihan: Page 127 of the programme for Government sets out that Ireland will become a leader in the take-up of electric vehicles. To do that we will need a network of charging points across the country. While people are willing to switch over, range anxiety is a major issue. I recognise that there are grants for the installation of chargers at home. As I have raised recently, however, businesses...
