Lorraine Clifford Lee: They do their academic training between pockets of a traineeship that lasts two years, meaning that they do a couple of months here and there.

Traditionally, female dominated professions are low paid. Do the delegates have any comment to...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Children and Youth Affairs: Recruitment and Retention of Social Workers: Discussion (Resumed) (10 Apr 2019)

Lorraine Clifford Lee: The gender pay gap arises because women experience a loss of salary as they work their way through their careers on account of not being able to avail of promotional opportunities. The delegates say, however, that there are no promotional opportunities in their profession. This is very serious and something I would like to see addressed.

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Schools Building Projects Status (9 Apr 2019)

Lorraine Clifford Lee: I welcome the Minister for Education and Skills to the House and thank him for taking this Commencement matter.

I refer to the effect on the surrounding areas, specifically St. Margaret's, Portmarnock, Kinsealy and Malahide. As the Minister knows, I lived in Portmarnock for several years. 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...
