Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (7 Oct 2021)

Victor Boyhan: I join with others in the tribute to the photographer Mr. Tom Burke. What an extraordinary man. He caught the expressions, the good times, the sad times, the low times and the high times of many politicians. He stood outside Leinster House at the Kildare Street gate and was occasionally at the Merrion Street gate. I came in that side once and said to him, "You are normally at the front."...

Victor Boyhan: I move: "That the Bill be now read a Second Time." I warmly welcome the Minister for Social Protection, Deputy Humphreys, to the House. She is somebody who I greatly admire. She is full of common sense and very dynamic. I know she will listen attentively to this debate. While we might disagree, the Minister has a job to do, and I always respect that. I, too, have a job to do and I gave a...

Seanad: Registration of Wills Bill 2021: Second Stage (6 Oct 2021)

Victor Boyhan: One could say, follow that. I love the passion. The more passionate about it that the Minister got, the more the Northern accent came out. I do not doubt her credentials. I said to her in the anteroom before I came into the Chamber that she has a job to do, and I have a job to do. There is a terrible creak in the floorboard here every time I move forward. I am disappointed with the...

Seanad: Dyslexia Awareness Week: Statements (6 Oct 2021)

Victor Boyhan: I welcome the Minister of State and thank her for coming to the House to focus for a short period on dyslexia. The minute I heard she was coming in I was reminded of the great autobiography of Micheal Heseltine, formerly a senior politician in the UK. He did not quite become leader of the Conservative Party for a load of internal reasons. In his autobiography he talked about hiding the...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (29 Sep 2021)

I acknowledge in particular the work of the Oireachtas joint committee, the previous committee of which the Minister was a member. I too was a member of that committee. I thank also the current joint committee operating in this political...

Seanad: Housing For All - a New Housing Plan for Ireland: Statements (29 Sep 2021)

Victor Boyhan: They did suggest a hard hat and jacket also with Rebuilding Ireland, but I said "No, this was enough". It is important that for a few moments we take a look back at Rebuilding Ireland: Action Plan for Housing and Homelessness from July 2016. At the time I spoke in favour of it and I thought how brave the then Minister, Deputy Coveney, was in setting it all out. When one sets out...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (28 Sep 2021)

Victor Boyhan: I wish to refer to a report in the media today, which featured in a number of newspapers, that the Government will establish a new national task force to tackle the growing hospital waiting lists. I wish to also refer to the shocking waiting list figures at which we must be alarmed. There are now 907,617 people waiting on treatment or assessment by a consultant and that is an increase over...
