Select Committee on Standing Order 112: Scrutiny of EU Legislative Proposals (27 Apr 2016)

Colm Brophy: I thank the committee for electing me as Chairman and it is an honour to have that position. I know this is a limited life committee until the formation of a new Government and I gather that the main committees will commence then. I ask people to bear with me as I am a new Deputy and new to the process of chairing a committee in this House. Members are requested to ensure that for the...

Select Committee on Standing Order 112: Scrutiny of EU Legislative Proposals (27 Apr 2016)

Colm Brophy: There are five proposals before the committee for decision today, ranging from scrutiny of the gas supply to posting of workers. Any decision made today on the subsidiarity aspect of these proposals will not prohibit the Oireachtas committees scrutinising them in detail in the future. COM (2016) 52 is a proposal regarding measures to safeguard the security of the gas supply. On the basis...

Select Committee on Standing Order 112: Scrutiny of EU Legislative Proposals (27 Apr 2016)

Colm Brophy: Well-----

Select Committee on Standing Order 112: Scrutiny of EU Legislative Proposals (27 Apr 2016)

Colm Brophy: Some of the points made by the Deputy are very valid. However, my understanding from the discussion I had with the officials prior to the meeting is that the reason for private session is not in any way to hide or remove something that is being discussed but to enable a very full briefing to be supplied to members on each proposal and allowing for the various aspects of who has privilege....

Select Committee on Standing Order 112: Scrutiny of EU Legislative Proposals (27 Apr 2016)

Colm Brophy: I propose that we note the conversation at this point. It is a matter the committee can examine. I am going to return to the question I put on COM (2016) 52, a proposal regarding the measures to safeguard the security of the gas supply. On the basis that there are no apparent subsidiarity concerns, it is proposed that this proposal does not warrant further scrutiny by the committee at...

Select Committee on Standing Order 112: Scrutiny of EU Legislative Proposals (27 Apr 2016)

Colm Brophy: I support Deputy Crowe's proposal and propose that we ask the Department to supply to the committee information relating to the concerns raised.

Committee on Housing and Homelessness: Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government (28 Apr 2016)

Colm Brophy: Most of the key areas have been covered and I will not go back over them, but I want to focus on a couple of points. The 10% to 15% target for the local authorities in regard to social housing is an area that has to be reconsidered. No one is arguing for 100% large estate builds but there is a problem if the local authorities are heavily involved in building that 10% to 15%, and I think...

Committee on Housing and Homelessness: Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government (28 Apr 2016)

Colm Brophy: Where council officials come back with a proposal that an elected representative examines and genuinely decides he or she cannot support, that does not mean that he or she is hypocritical. That was a wrong choice of word. Public representatives, particularly at council level, are struggling with this on every occasion this arises. I say that as someone who was quite willing to support the...

Committee on Housing and Homelessness: Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government (28 Apr 2016)

Crime: Statements (5 May 2016)

Colm Brophy: I thank the Acting Chairman for allowing me to make a contribution to the debate. This is my second contribution to the House since my election. I took the opportunity this morning to sit here and listen to the contributions from other Deputies. Obviously, as would any Deputy, I had prepared some remarks to make, but I am going to change some of my contribution on foot of things I have...

Crime: Statements (5 May 2016)

Colm Brophy: There are other aspects of this matter that I wish to comment on. Gangland crime is one of the worst things to afflict this nation in the past number of years. For decades it has come and gone, peaking at various times, but it never goes away. Governments of all hues have put means in place to try to tackle it. I welcome those interventions by Governments, regardless of where they came...

Select Committee on Standing Order 112: Scrutiny of EU Legislative Proposals (11 May 2016)

Colm Brophy: Apologies have been received from Deputies Michael Harty, Seán Fleming and Eoin Ó Broin.

Today we will consider four EU draft legislative proposals. I propose that we go into private...
