Joint Oireachtas Committee on Justice, Defence and Equality: Garda Reform and Related Issues: Discussion (26 Jun 2019)

Lorraine Clifford Lee: I have a couple of questions on a separate matter. Mr. Harris referred to the 60th anniversary of women being admitted to An Garda Síochána. Has he carried out an audit of the percentage of female members at the various levels and ranks within the organisation?

Lorraine Clifford Lee: What measures are taken within An Garda to encourage women to seek promotion?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Justice, Defence and Equality: Garda Reform and Related Issues: Discussion (26 Jun 2019)

Lorraine Clifford Lee: I am very happy to hear that. There is gender pay gap legislation making its way down the tracks. Those kinds of audits are audits that large organisations such as the Garda should be doing. I am glad to hear the Garda is setting up the network. It should be borne in mind that women often need to be asked to put themselves forward. We do not naturally put ourselves forward for promotion...

Seanad: Redress for Women Resident in Certain Institutions (Amendment) Bill 2019: Second Stage (25 Jun 2019)

Lorraine Clifford Lee: The Fianna Fáil will be supporting this Bill and we welcome its progression to this House. It is an important part of the apology that we are making to the women who went through these institutions and who have suffered the horrific legacy of the stigma that was imposed on them by the State. I hope it will go some way to healing the massive wound that is still there for them and their...

Seanad: Judicial Council Bill 2017: Report and Final Stages (20 Jun 2019)

Lorraine Clifford Lee: I welcome the Minister of State's amendments. I am glad they will provide guidance to us on awards. I have concerns about the timelines. The Minister of State might be able to shed some light on this matter. When will the personal injuries committee be in place? Has the Department taken logistical steps ahead of the appointment of the committee, for example, by putting aside office space...

Seanad: Judicial Council Bill 2017: Report and Final Stages (20 Jun 2019)

Seanad: Criminal Justice (Mutual Recognition of Probation Judgments and Decisions) Bill 2018: Second Stage (18 Jun 2019)

Lorraine Clifford Lee: We support this Bill, the value of which was clearly outlined by the Minister. Supporting people's rehabilitation is what we always should seek to do. However, I am disappointed that it has taken so long to get these proposals to the House. Will the Minister comment on that?

Seanad: Criminal Justice (Mutual Recognition of Probation Judgments and Decisions) Bill 2018: Second Stage (18 Jun 2019)

Lorraine Clifford Lee: No. I am talking about the ten years or so it has taken to progress this Bill. Will the Minister explain in his response why it has taken so long?

Seanad: Gnó an tSeanaid - Business of Seanad (18 Jun 2019)

Lorraine Clifford Lee: That is not my understanding. If the Minister has to attend the Dáil Chamber for an important matter then we should facilitate that. We could, however, start the debate, then suspend-----

Seanad: Gnó an tSeanaid - Business of Seanad (18 Jun 2019)

Lorraine Clifford Lee: We could start the debate now and then suspend to allow the Minister to attend the Dáil. He can then come back to this House. It is only right and proper that we finish at 7.30 p.m.

Seanad: Offences against the State (Amendment) Act 1998 and Criminal Justice (Amendment) Act 2009: Motions (13 Jun 2019)

Lorraine Clifford Lee: We will support the motions. The Minister has made a clear case for the need for this legislation. In particular, he made reference to the death of the journalist Lyra McKee in the North only a very few short weeks ago. Her death shocked everyone and showed how close we are to violence breaking out again. Brexit also poses a risk to this State. This legislation is necessary and we will...

Seanad: Adoption (Information and Tracing) Bill 2016: Committee Stage (12 Jun 2019)

Lorraine Clifford Lee: I will not delay proceedings any longer because we have a lot of amendments to get through. I welcome the Bill. I acknowledge the issues that many colleagues have raised with it, but it is an important first step. That is all it is. It addresses a very dark history in this country. For many years there were attempts to sweep that history under the carpet and pretend it never happened,...

Seanad: Gaming and Lotteries (Amendment) Bill 2019: Report and Final Stages (11 Jun 2019)

Lorraine Clifford Lee: I move amendment No. 7:In page 20, between lines 13 and 14, to insert the following:“(2) Section 7 of the Betting Act 1931 is amended by the insertion of the following section after section 7E:“Condition attaching to licences issued under the Act of 19317F. (1) This section applies to any bookmaker’s licence, remote bookmaker’s licence and remote betting...

Seanad: Gaming and Lotteries (Amendment) Bill 2019: Report and Final Stages (11 Jun 2019)

Lorraine Clifford Lee: I thank Senator McDowell for seconding the amendment which seeks to strengthen the purpose of the Act in regard to companies taking bets based on the outcome of the national lottery. This seeks to divert funds away from the national lottery fund that seeks to support all communities across the State. It is an excellent fund and this is why I bring this amendment forward. I hope the...
