I invited the Minister to my...

Seanad: Judicial Council Bill 2017: Committee Stage (2 Apr 2019)

Lorraine Clifford Lee: I wish to make a point on the differences in sentencing depending on one's gender. I first visited Mountjoy Prison when I was a trainee solicitor. We were brought up to see the men's and the women's prisons and there is significant difference between the two. The prison officer who was bringing us around pointed out that the women who ended up there tended to have been victims throughout...

Seanad: Civil Liability (Capping of General Damages Bill) 2019: Second Stage (28 Mar 2019)

Lorraine Clifford Lee: I have listened to what Senators Lawlor and Conway have said and I agree with their sentiments. I hear all the time from people who are facing significant premiums for their businesses or their own cars. It is outrageous. However, the Bill does not represent the way to go in this regard. It is probably unconstitutional. Perhaps the Minister can tell us whether the Attorney General has...

Lorraine Clifford Lee: Fianna Fáil is supporting the Bill. It is happy to support any measures that will, in principle, help distressed mortgage holders. It is welcome that the purpose of the Bill is to broaden the scope of matters that courts must take into account. We believe that loans should not be sold to vulture funds. Such practices are causing great distress to people across the country. Apart...

Seanad: Period Poverty: Motion (27 Mar 2019)

Lorraine Clifford Lee: I second the motion. I welcome the Minister of State. I am delighted that we are having this debate. It follows on from the debate in Dáil Éireann, which was very well received both here and by the general public. I, too, commend the Women's Caucus for formulating this motion and putting it forward.

We in north County Dublin took baby Belle...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (27 Feb 2019)

Last night's documentary on "Claire Byrne Live" was a great public service.RTÉ should be proud of it. It gave a voice to Clodagh, her sons and the Hawe family that had been missing for a long time since their deaths in August 2016. Mary and Jacqueline, Clodagh's mother and sister, gave a great...
