Health Insurance (Amendment) Bill 2019: Report and Final Stages (10 Dec 2019)

James Lawless: Deputy Naughten makes a good point. Prevention is the best cure. The elective procedures of the type Deputy Naughten mentioned and the prolificacy of urgent care centres for such admissions, which are springing up nationwide, is an important part of the health service. The point on model 2 hospitals is well made, particularly in regard to the minimum benefit regulations. The Deputy...

Credit Union Restructuring Board (Dissolution) Bill 2019: Report and Final Stages (10 Dec 2019)

James Lawless: I apologise for coming in somewhat out of sequence. I appreciate the opportunity. I welcome that the Bill is passing Final Stage. It was a significant tranche of work, as has been mentioned by Deputies who have spoken. I saw this up close in my constituency of Kildare North, where we had significant restructuring.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Communications, Climate Action and Environment: Future Funding of Public Service Broadcasting: Discussion (10 Dec 2019)

James Lawless: I am going to move quickly because I know we are under time pressure. There was an announcement this afternoon about a new commission on public service broadcasting, which is to be initiated. I am not sure if the officials here can talk to that in any detail. I understand they may have been caught short on it themselves in terms of the timing of the announcement. The Chair, myself, as...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Communications, Climate Action and Environment: Future Funding of Public Service Broadcasting: Discussion (10 Dec 2019)

James Lawless: I thank Mr. Coveney for that. I have one brief follow-up question which is quite fundamental. In the debate that took place in the Dáil Chamber a few weeks ago and on many other occasions, I have expressed a view - I think Deputy Dooley and other members of the committee share it - that in terms of public service broadcasting there is a general consensus that it is a public good....

Environmental Impact of Quarries and Incinerators: Motion [Private Members] (4 Dec 2019)

James Lawless: I have heard many references to the "RTÉ Investigates" programme during the debate. While I have not watched it, I have extensive experience of dealing with quarries, landfills and so on in my constituency, both as a Deputy and previously as a member of the local authority. It is only fair at this point to go a little against the tide and say they are not all bad and they are not all...

An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (3 Dec 2019)

James Lawless: Commuter rail services in north Kildare have been in crisis for some time because of a lack of carriages, rolling stock and, in particular, parking spaces. My local station at Sallins and Naas is probably the busiest station on the Kildare line and it is almost unusable at this stage because spaces are simply not available after 7 a.m. This has the effect of frustrating commuters' efforts...

Report on Island Fisheries (Heritage Licence) Bill 2017: Motion (21 Nov 2019)

James Lawless: I thank Deputy Connolly for letting me in ahead of her. I am under a bit of pressure for time. I welcome the report.

Report on Island Fisheries (Heritage Licence) Bill 2017: Motion (21 Nov 2019)

James Lawless: An undue focus was probably placed on it at the time for a variety of reasons. In 1976, Fianna Fáil, in Opposition, tabled a Bill to the effect that quotas would be revisited and that the Common Fisheries Policy would be reviewed. In the round, it did not happen and that has often been said. The Law of the Sea is an excellent academic work on the subject and the prelude to that would...

Hospital Overcrowding: Motion [Private Members] (20 Nov 2019)

James Lawless: We have had a number of fake news election slogans in recent years, including "Make America Great Again" and "Take Back Control". Who would forget the former Taoiseach, Deputy Enda Kenny, standing beside a billboard stating he would end the scandal of hospital waiting lists? Deputy Murphy O'Mahony alluded to that promise. Enda has been and gone but the waiting lists are still here and are,...
