Ibrahim Halawa: Motion (7 Jul 2016)

Colm Brophy: I am delighted to be able to contribute to the debate. I realise time is short but, as a constituency TD, I want to make a simple statement. At 17 years of age we all believe we are adults and that we are strong, but we are still young people at the start of our lives. Something as horrendous as having one's liberty taken at 17 years of age and being kept in prison with no indication of...

Committee on Budgetary Oversight: Analysis of Economic Forecasts: Central Bank of Ireland (6 Sep 2016)

Colm Brophy: There has been much talk on Brexit and the risks associated with it. A specific issue with regard to the next 12 months is the currency movement which has come about as a result of the Brexit vote, and the impact on the economy of near parity between sterling and the euro. It is possible there are opportunities. I am interested to hear the thoughts of the witnesses on the risks in this...

Committee on Budgetary Oversight: Analysis of Economic Forecasts: Central Bank of Ireland (6 Sep 2016)

Colm Brophy: Yes.

Government Appeal of European Commission Decision on State Aid to Apple: Motion (7 Sep 2016)

Colm Brophy: I welcome the opportunity to contribute to this debate. I cannot figure out whether I find it amusing or appalling and sickening when I listen to lectures coming from Sinn Féin on this situation, on tax avoidance and the State losing money. I remind some of the Sinn Féin Deputies that the criminality of various people cost the State millions and maybe if Apple had been laundering...

Committee on Budgetary Oversight: Economic and Fiscal Position: Economic and Social Research Institute (7 Sep 2016)

Colm Brophy: I thank the witnesses for coming into us today. Professor Barrett's last contribution showed one of the things that is the real problem sometimes when one looks at things economically. While one might end up with a macro viewpoint on something, it sounds absolutely absurd when one hears it out loud. If anyone was to suggest that we cut low-paid public sector workers' pay because of some...

Committee on Budgetary Oversight: Economic and Fiscal Position: Economic and Social Research Institute (7 Sep 2016)

Colm Brophy: A measured, observable reality can be an absurdity to other people. I have a couple of questions for Professor Barrett and I appreciate that he outlined that it was his own personal view and perspective. There are two things. I take on board certain aspects of Professor Barrett's comments on the USC in regard to some of its benefits. However, for lower and middle income workers the USC is...

Committee on Budgetary Oversight: Economic and Fiscal Position: Economic and Social Research Institute (7 Sep 2016)

Colm Brophy: Professor Barrett mentioned the high marginal rates of tax, and USC is an integral part of how much tax people pay. Regardless of whether we like it, we have an open economy. We must look at how much tax is coming off starter salaries of €30,000 or €40,000 and the salaries of graduates coming out of college, be they nurses or computer programmers. They can go to the UK and be...

Committee on Budgetary Oversight: Economic and Fiscal Position: Economic and Social Research Institute (7 Sep 2016)

Colm Brophy: As someone who is also in the business of employing people, I have been informed directly that people can be offered the same salary in London - where they pay the going rate for housing - but that the regime here is a disincentive for them. Perhaps we are hiring different individuals.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Justice, Defence and Equality: Charity Appeals Tribunal: Chairperson Designate (14 Sep 2016)

Colm Brophy: I congratulate Mr. O'Connor on his appointment. I congratulate Mr. O'Connor on his appointment. The question I wished to ask has been partially answered already. It relates to how grounds for an appeal to the tribunal might work or how the tribunal's approach might differ from the way the regulator originally looked at it. In other words, is there a framework or will criteria be laid down,...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Justice, Defence and Equality: Charity Appeals Tribunal: Chairperson Designate (14 Sep 2016)

Colm Brophy: I take Mr. O'Connor's point about the charity sector being in a good place right now. There are a lot of very brilliant charities operating in Ireland but I am not quite sure I would be as positive about it being in a good place as Mr. O'Connor. There are definite problems in the sector and the need for a regulator to be in place and to be given additional powers shows that is the case....
