Taisceadán (Valuable Property Register) Bill 2019: First Stage (11 Jul 2019)

Martin Kenny: A national property register is long overdue. We all know many people around the country who have had property stolen and cannot relocate it. That property is often found but never returned to its owners because it is found in a different part of the country. In Sligo and Leitrim, the local authorities are engaged in a process of marking property for people. At marts, they mark trailers,...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh (Atógáil) - Questions on Promised Legislation (Resumed) (11 Jul 2019)

Martin Kenny: About two years ago I raised the issue of Solas, a purpose-built house for children with disabilities in Sligo. It was closed. About this time last year we were told that a new facility called Bayview Respite Service would be opened in Tullaghan in County Leitrim. I am not sure which agency was to run it but it was not the HSE. It may have been the Rehab Group. For the last six months...

Ceisteanna - Questions - Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: CEDRA Remit (11 Jul 2019)

Martin Kenny: The question is around the targets that have been reached and the implementation of the Commission for the Economic Development of Rural Areas, CEDRA, report. There was considerable razzmatazz about the CEDRA report. Much of what is in the report is supported by everyone in the House and across the country because it sets out broad objectives on what needs to be done in rural Ireland. The...

Ceisteanna - Questions - Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: CEDRA Remit (11 Jul 2019)

Martin Kenny: I accept that the setting up of the Department was one of the key recommendations of the report. However, many of the other recommendations in the report have not been addressed to the level envisaged in the CEDRA report. This is evident when we look at the issues of housing and investment in rural Ireland. My colleague mentioned how many of the jobs outside of Dublin are only just outside...

Ceisteanna - Questions - Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: CEDRA Remit (11 Jul 2019)

Martin Kenny: The issue of housing is one of the key issues the Department can address. An agriculture scheme was brought out recently whereby a small amount of Government money was used to leverage a greater loan at a lower interest rate that people could access. One of the problems is that many of the people who own these properties cannot get a loan anywhere because they are already in debt for other...

Ceisteanna - Questions - Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: CEDRA Remit (11 Jul 2019)

Martin Kenny: I think the Department has a crucial role in this because it is a rural matter.

Martin Kenny: 18. To ask the Minister for Rural and Community Development the reason the allocation and processing of applications for LEADER funding is perceived as being slow; if there delays in this regard; if so, his plans to address same; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [30219/19]

EU-Mercosur Trade Agreement: Motion [Private Members] (10 Jul 2019)

Martin Kenny: It was clear to anyone who listened to last night's debate and question-and-answer session on this issue that the Government is determined to press ahead with the proposed deal. This is disappointing for the thousands of farmers who are protesting outside the gates of Leinster House today. They feel their livelihoods are under threat because the Government is working in co-operation with...

EU-Mercosur Trade Agreement: Statements (Resumed) (9 Jul 2019)

Martin Kenny: I seek clarity on the Minister's reference to a mixed trade deal. If it is a mixed trade deal, it will come before the parliaments of all EU member states. I understand we are not certain whether that is the case but assuming it is, will the Oireachtas vote on the deal when the time comes? If we were to reject it, would the trade deal fall for the whole EU?

EU-Mercosur Trade Agreement: Statements (Resumed) (9 Jul 2019)

Martin Kenny: The trade deal is already done.

EU-Mercosur Trade Agreement: Statements (Resumed) (9 Jul 2019)

Martin Kenny: The Minister said that the Mercosur countries must meet criteria similar to those farmers in Europe must meet. She comes from a farming community. We are all aware that traceability is paramount. When the animal is born, he or she is tagged for life. This has not been the case in Mercosur countries up to now but we are expecting that this will change overnight. If it does, how will it be...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Forestry Sector and Climate Action Plan: Discussion (9 Jul 2019)

Martin Kenny: I thank the Minister of State for his presentation. I live in Leitrim where people feel that there has been over-afforestation which has been detrimental to rural communities and there is a serious problem of rural decline and depopulation and the continuous creep of forestry over the landscape is doing nothing to help those communities. The solution we hear is that there is lots of work in...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Forestry Sector and Climate Action Plan: Discussion (9 Jul 2019)

Martin Kenny: Does the Minister of State accept there is an imbalance in County Leitrim?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Forestry Sector and Climate Action Plan: Discussion (9 Jul 2019)
