Seanad: Redundancy Payments (Amendment) Bill 2022: Second Stage (8 Mar 2022)

Pat Casey: I welcome the Minister of State. As stated by Senator Ahearn, everybody in the House is supportive of the Bill. As it progressed through the Dáil, equally there was support for it there. It is logical, common-sense legislation that is to be welcomed. However, I want to speak a little about the pandemic and the Government's approach to it. The Government has tried to facilitate...

Seanad: Animal Health and Welfare and Forestry (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill 2021: Committee Stage (Resumed) (3 Mar 2022)

Pat Casey: I welcome the Minister to the House. The debate has moved on from mink farming and it is about what happens as a result of the closure of a business. Senator Higgins alluded to it. We do not know where we are going. We do not know what sector might be closed in another 15 or 20 years. I want to speak about people in family businesses and who have spent the past 30 years building up those...

Seanad: Animal Health and Welfare and Forestry (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill 2021: Committee Stage (Resumed) (3 Mar 2022)

Pat Casey: I will briefly focus on the verifiable evidence. I will go back to my own situation. If the Minister was to come to me and say that he was going to base my compensation on the past five years of my business, but 40% of that time was two years of the worst years experienced in my business, I would not accept it. If it was five normal years of business I might have a better understanding of...

Seanad: Credit Union Sector: Statements (2 Mar 2022)

Pat Casey: I welcome the Minister of State to the Chamber. As he has pointed out, we are again discussing a favourite topic of ours, namely, credit unions. We all have some history with the credit unions. I might sound a bit nostalgic when I say that my first savings account was with the credit union and the first few bob that I borrowed was from my local credit union. During my lifetime credit...

Seanad: Life Saving Equipment Bill 2017: Committee Stage (17 Feb 2022)

Pat Casey: I welcome to the Chamber our guest, John Fitzgerald, who I know for a long time and who has been at the heart of the community first responder scheme since 2004. I was first introduced to it at a public meeting in Bray in 2003 and my own community in Laragh and Glendalough was one of the first within Wicklow to get up and running in 2004. I also welcome Celine and Jason who are not from my...

Seanad: Payment of Wages (Amendment) (Tips and Gratuities) Bill 2022: Second Stage (1 Feb 2022)

Pat Casey: I welcome the Tánaiste to the House, and I welcome the Bill. However, as somebody who has lived his life in the hospitality sector I am disappointed that we have to introduce a piece of legislation for the distribution of what is surely the entitlement of staff to their tips. I am disappointed that it has come to that. A minority of businesses are not distributing tips properly. A...

Seanad: Broadband Roll-out: Statements (26 Jan 2022)

Pat Casey: It has already been mentioned that the importance of broadband will be compared to water infrastructure, electrification and roads. When prioritised, broadband infrastructure is now maybe as important as road infrastructure, because if we can work from home, we do not need the road to take us to work. It has critical importance. Over the last two years of the Covid pandemic, we have...
