Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Farm Plastics Recycling: Discussion (18 May 2021)

Paul Daly: Mr. Moloney has mentioned the five-yearly review the IFFPG has with the Department. The group is licensed by the Department and the approval of that licence is renewed every five years. Is it a formality or is it an advertised, open tender. Could I decide I wanted to take on the role and submit a tender or is it a formality whereby the group and the Department sit down informally, or...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Farm Plastics Recycling: Discussion (18 May 2021)

Paul Daly: When the IFFPG licence is up for review, is it advertised? When the licence has run its term and is going to be renewed, is it advertised at that time that a new licence is up for issue? Are people other than the IFFPG given the opportunity to tender or apply for that licence?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Climate Action Plan and its Implications for the Agriculture Sector: Discussion (Resumed) (4 May 2021)

Paul Daly: I welcome the witnesses to our meeting today. I will kick off with some elaboration on what was a most comprehensive submission. Indeed, I do not need to ask for any elaboration on it because it is one of the most comprehensive submissions that I have seen. I compliment the witnesses on that. Submissions aside, I read the An Taisce mission statement. I will quote one line from the...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Regulation of Veterinary Medicines: Discussion (Resumed) (27 Apr 2021)

Paul Daly: I welcome the witnesses to the committee. I get it. I am with the witnesses and I see where the HPRA is coming from in that its role in the whole system is really the product demarcation or whatever, in conjunction with the EMA. The Department has to look at the issue at hand, which, from an anti-parasitic point of view, has boiled down to the question of whether medicines are...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Regulation of Veterinary Medicines: Discussion (Resumed) (27 Apr 2021)

Paul Daly: I welcome the witnesses from the Veterinary Council of Ireland and I have a number of questions or statements on which they could elaborate. They arise from the submission to the committee. I will follow up a very interesting deliberation we had in the past hour with the HPRA. Something came through very loud and clear on the issue of antiparasitic resistance. I am conscious that the VCI...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Regulation of Veterinary Medicines: Discussion (Resumed) (27 Apr 2021)

Paul Daly: I want to follow on from the point the Chair made. It is well known that I am a suckler farmer and the Chair is a dairy farmer. The Chair highlighted the business of a dairy farm in the months of February, March and even into April. That is the very time the suckler farmer will be considering putting out his or her cattle and will want them treated for parasites before putting them out....

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Proposed Amendments to the Good Agricultural and Environmental Conditions: Discussion (20 Apr 2021)

Paul Daly: I welcome the representatives of Macra na Feirme and I wish to be associated with the good wishes to Mr. Duffy. It is always a pleasure to work with him. I also wish Mr. Keane the best in his forthcoming term of office. I wish to elaborate a little on a couple of matters. We will all lobby for, and hopefully we will be successful in, getting the extension to the current stamp duty laws....

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Proposed Amendments to the Good Agricultural and Environmental Conditions: Discussion (20 Apr 2021)

Paul Daly: My question is very brief and the witnesses might be able to cover all of our questions together. What is the opinion of the witnesses on the aggregate food strategy that was published recently and on the agriculture action plan for 2021?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Proposed Amendments to the Good Agricultural and Environmental Conditions: Discussion (14 Apr 2021)

Paul Daly: I welcome the witnesses from the farmer representative bodies. As the Chairman rightly says, we have many witnesses and members in attendance, so time is of the essence. I will not take much time. While I have no specific question, I would like to hear from the different organisations, in advance of our meeting with the Department later, if there is one thing that we could leave this...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Proposed Amendments to the Good Agricultural and Environmental Conditions: Discussion (14 Apr 2021)

Paul Daly: I thank the departmental officials. I will be very brief. Most of what was raised in our first session that needed to be brought to this session has been raised by Deputies Fitzmaurice and Carthy. I would like to gain a little bit of an insight as to how the Department is approaching the negotiations. Based on what we have been told by the INHFA in particular, what is the viewpoint of the...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Implications of Climate Action Plan for Agricultural Sector: Teagasc (14 Apr 2021)

Paul Daly: I welcome the representatives from Teagasc. I wish to be associated with Senator Boyhan's remarks and wish Professor Boyle the best in the future. I have no doubt our paths will cross before his imminent departure but in case they do not, it has always been a pleasure working with him on occasions like this. I have a couple of questions and top of the list is one about hedgerows. Senator...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Regulation of Veterinary Medicines: Discussion (23 Mar 2021)

Paul Daly: I welcome Professor More, Ms McAloon and Ms Finola McCoy and I thank them for their very comprehensive submission. The only problem I had was that, as a layman, I struggled with many of the medical and technical terms. I had to read much of the detail a second time. The submission was based mainly on the antibiotic stewardship of the dairy industry. It related more to antimicrobial...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Regulation of Veterinary Medicines: Discussion (23 Mar 2021)

Paul Daly: I welcome the witnesses and thank them for their presence. I am fortunate enough to benefit from the great service the vets provide daily and hourly in my area. Unfortunately, in my role here today the praise has to end there and I must be slightly critical. I would have to be slightly critical based on the Veterinary Ireland submission, which I would like to quote. This is our third...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Eradication of Bovine Tuberculosis: Discussion (9 Mar 2021)

Paul Daly: I welcome the witnesses. I am conscious of the time and will be brief. This is known as the tuberculosis eradication strategy. We have talked about eradicating tuberculosis for almost 70 years. As a farmer myself, I am beginning to think what we are at is more identification or location. Eradication is not something we seem to be mastering. I would like if the different farm...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Eradication of Bovine Tuberculosis: Discussion (9 Mar 2021)

Paul Daly: I had some technical issues here between the two meetings so I missed the start. If I am repeating any point perhaps the Chairman will inform me that a topic was already dealt with. I heard Deputy Fitzmaurice's contribution, including his question on a person having an off-farm job that might affect hardship payments. I did not hear an answer on that and I would like to hear such an...

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

Paul Daly: Gabhaim buíochas leis an gCathaoirleach. Ba mhaith liom rud amháin a ardú inniu ar dtús agus buíochas a ghabháil le mo chomhghleacaí agus mo chara, an Seanadóir Ó Murchú, mar tá a lán oibre déanta aige ar an gceist seo. The issue I raise relates to both flooding and insurance, which have been raised in the House on numerous...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Rewetting of Peatland and its Impact on Farmers: Discussion (2 Mar 2021)

Paul Daly: The Chairman was on the missing list. None of us heard anything.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Rewetting of Peatland and its Impact on Farmers: Discussion (2 Mar 2021)

Paul Daly: I will be very brief because we have many contributors and time is limited. I have attended meetings and discussed this issue with neighbours. Where I live is right on the verge of certain areas that will be badly affected. I ask the representatives to update us on where they are. Has anything in their communications with Bord na Móna changed since they made their submissions? We...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Rewetting of Peatland and its Impact on Farmers: Discussion (2 Mar 2021)

Paul Daly: I appreciate the Chairman's position and with the greatest respect to Dr. Wilson, it is important that we get at least 25 minutes with Bord na Móna.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Rewetting of Peatland and its Impact on Farmers: Discussion (2 Mar 2021)

Paul Daly: I have a few quick-fire questions. I will not get into statements because I am conscious of the time constraints and it is vitally important that we have this interaction. I will accept my questions being answered with other questions. What commitment is Bord na Móna giving to do hydrological assessments in the areas it is proposing to wet in conjunction with neighbouring farmers?...
