Joint Oireachtas Committee on European Union Affairs: Business of Committee (29 Nov 2016)

Colm Brophy: I propose Deputy Haughey to chair the meeting.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on European Union Affairs: General Affairs Council: Minister of State at the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (29 Nov 2016)

Colm Brophy: I agree with many of the Minister of State’s remarks. I fully support the work being done by the Taoiseach, the Minister of State, other Ministers and many inside and outside of the Oireachtas on the Brexit negotiations as they are. One position with which I have a disagreement is the engagement with Turkey. While I appreciate the position the Minister of State is coming from and...

Select Committee on Justice and Equality: Business of Select Committee (30 Nov 2016)

Colm Brophy: As a newly elected Deputy, I apologise if I am not 100% accurate about the flow of the process. To listen to the righteous indignation of some Deputies, one would swear we are never going to consider this legislation again. Am I not right in understanding that at some point soon we can carry out pre-legislative scrutiny of Deputy O'Callaghan's Bill and maybe of a Government Bill too?...

Select Committee on Justice and Equality: Business of Select Committee (30 Nov 2016)

Colm Brophy: It can be amended.

Select Committee on Justice and Equality: Business of Select Committee (30 Nov 2016)

Colm Brophy: We still have time to amend it.

Select Committee on Justice and Equality: Business of Select Committee (30 Nov 2016)

Colm Brophy: On a point of order, if we are going to have a view of how the committee should proceed, we should also look at what Deputy O'Callaghan was going to do at the next Stage and the timing of that, which I happen to think was disrespectful to our committee in terms of giving us proper time to view amendments. I believe we should take that into account. A Deputy of this committee cannot treat...

Topical Issue Debate: Special Educational Needs Service Provision (1 Dec 2016)

Colm Brophy: I thank the Leas-Cheann Comhairle for allowing this matter to be taken. I want to raise the issue of the failure to fill a needs assessment officer position in Dublin south west. This is a critical post for families, parents and schools wishing to allocate resource hours. The post has been vacant since March. It has not been filled. I accept that a process was engaged in to try to fill...

Topical Issue Debate: Special Educational Needs Service Provision (1 Dec 2016)

Colm Brophy: I thank the Minister of State for his reply. I acknowledge and recognise the investment the Government has put into this area. It is worth making the point again that this happened last March. I appreciate the Minister of State has met the parents. We have all, as public representatives, met parents who are caught up in this. It is an incredibly bureaucratic situation that it has taken...

Select Committee on Justice and Equality: Business of Committee (1 Dec 2016)

Colm Brophy: I feel we should not adjourn. As far as I am concerned, we are not actually passing legislation. This is Committee Stage and we are examining the legislation. No reason has been advocated as to why we should adjourn at this Stage and why we cannot carry out our work as a committee today. If there is a problem in the future, there are several opportunities for the Oireachtas to intervene....

Select Committee on Justice and Equality: Business of Committee (1 Dec 2016)

Colm Brophy: It is unbelievable. By his own words, he was aware of this last week. He knew this meeting was taking place but he decided, for whatever reason which is beyond me, not to mention this yesterday when this committee was in session, as a courtesy to the Chairman and the rest of us present. I find that very strange. It makes me wonder about the process that is taking place now. If this was...

Select Committee on Justice and Equality: Business of Committee (1 Dec 2016)

Colm Brophy: I thank the Chairman for facilitating the meeting. He showed a tremendous willingness, as did all committee members, to work with the Minister and the Department to facilitate this legislation. Regardless of what decision is made, I appreciate, as all committee members do, the way the Chairman has conducted the entire process in trying to facilitate the Bill. The outcome and why it has...
