Seanad: Land Development Agency Bill 2021: Committee Stage (12 Jul 2021)

Victor Boyhan: I move amendment No. 23: In page 12, between lines 15 and 16, to insert the following: "(5) The Minister, in giving a direction under subsection (1), shall publish the contents of such a direction in, Iris Oifigiúil, being the official Irish State gazette, at least one national newspaper and the Agency shall publish on its website the same contents, where a copy of the direction may...

Victor Boyhan: I second the amendment.

Seanad: Climate Action and Low Carbon Development (Amendment) Bill 2021: Report and Final Stages (9 Jul 2021)

Victor Boyhan: I will be brief. I support the amendments on the prohibition of the importation of fracked gas. It is a major issue. The Minister will be aware that many members of his party were very much to the fore in this issue. There is an expectation that he will deliver for them in terms of the political side of this argument. I do not want to go into great detail because I am conscious we have a...

Seanad: Climate Action and Low Carbon Development (Amendment) Bill 2021: Report and Final Stages (9 Jul 2021)

Victor Boyhan: I agree with Senators Lombard and Murphy on agriculture and I thank the Minister. I support the amendment. I acknowledge the work of Senator Paul Daly, in particular. He is a member of the agriculture committee, as is Senator Lombard. Senator Murphy is on the panel. The amendment goes some way towards addressing the issues but we have a hell of a lot of work to do. To endorse what other...

Victor Boyhan: I second the amendment.

Seanad: Climate Action and Low Carbon Development (Amendment) Bill 2021: Report and Final Stages (9 Jul 2021)

Victor Boyhan: I would like to reiterate what Senator Gavan said. The Opposition has come together. There was no difficulty coming together to seek to have greater clarity and a definition of "just transition". I referred at the very outset to the importance of fairness, climate justice, just transition and bringing everyone with us, particularly those in the agriculture, horticulture and forestry...

Seanad: Land Development Agency Bill 2021: Second Stage (9 Jul 2021)

Victor Boyhan: I welcome the Minister of State to the House. For those outside of the House, it is worth saying that the Land Development Agency is a commercial, State-sponsored body and has been created to co-ordinate land within the State's control for more optimal uses with an appropriate focus on the provision of housing. I am particularly delighted that again, even today, I read in the national press...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Impact of Peat Shortages on the Horticulture Industry: Discussion (Resumed) (6 Jul 2021)

Victor Boyhan: First, I welcome the witnesses. I do not intend to take up too much time because I spent a lot of yesterday being mushroomed out with talking about it. The national newspapers today have covered this issue quite extensively. I am very supportive of the horticulture sector and particularly the witnesses' sector. It is grossly unfair and hypocrisy at its best to talk about bringing in peat...

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Planning Issues (5 Jul 2021)

Victor Boyhan: I thank the Cathaoirleach for selecting this really important Commencement matter related to planning. I welcome my colleague and friend the Minister of State. It is good to see him in particular, as he has a strong record on planning and environmental considerations and is a major champion of the Aarhus Convention. It is important this Commencement matter is dealt with in this way. It is...

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Planning Issues (5 Jul 2021)

Victor Boyhan: I thank the Minister of State for that response. I am happy with it. It was a coincidence that today's The Irish Timescarried the story. However, on 15 June 2021, the Minister of State, Deputy Peter Burke, wrote to the committee, of which I am a member, and referred to Programme for Government: Our Shared Vision and his requirement to examine again the general scheme of the Housing and...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (5 Jul 2021)

Victor Boyhan: I sound something like a broken record but I want to talk again about mushrooms and the mushroom sector, this unique product which is neither a vegetable or fruit but is a fungus. This product is branded at great cost and expense by Bord Bia on behalf of the State and is exported all over the world. Up until recently, it was being flown out of the country and three days later it was sitting...

Seanad: Gender Pay Gap Information Bill 2019: Report and Final Stages (5 Jul 2021)

Victor Boyhan: I am very conscious of time but I want to reiterate what Senator Bacik has said. This is really important and excellent legislation. There would not be much division among Senators in respect of it. It is important to note the valid point made by the Senator and I am happy to support it. Again, I thank the Senator and the Labour Party for the very substantial amendments before us today.
