Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Unfair Trading Practices: Discussion (5 Nov 2019)

Paul Daly: In a Remain scenario where does Ms Tacon see the UK's relationship with the unfair trading practices directive?

Seanad Committee on the Withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union: Implications for Ireland of the Withdrawal of the UK from the EU in regard to the Agriculture and Food Sectors: Discussion (23 Oct 2019)

Paul Daly: I welcome the three groups and thank them for their presentations. One can use the word "stark" in this case. We were all familiar with the figures before our guests came in but their presentations offer a new realisation. Following on from the Chairman's questions, I am aware that the two Republic of Ireland organisations are lobbying continually in Brussels. The IFA is in a grouping with...

Seanad Committee on the Withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union: Implications for Ireland of the Withdrawal of the UK from the EU in regard to the Agriculture and Food Sectors: Discussion (23 Oct 2019)

Paul Daly: I have another meeting at 4 p.m. so if I leave before Mr. Kelly has an opportunity to reply, I will read the transcript. My question is a follow-up to the Chairman's. Even if we got our wish list relating to Brexit, we are still dependent on how markets gauge it and sterling can respond by either strengthening or weakening. It is something we always had prior to Brexit, but it was not as...

Seanad Committee on the Withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union: Implications for Ireland of the Withdrawal of the UK from the EU in regard to the Agriculture and Food Sectors: Discussion (23 Oct 2019)

Paul Daly: Will the transition period, if and when we get to it, involve more of the same in terms of uncertainty, or will the companies might view it with a little more positivity and move on to their next phases of development, which some have been shelving because of uncertainty?

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (22 Oct 2019)

Paul Daly: The Senator is going to rub it in now.

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (22 Oct 2019)

Paul Daly: I would like to raise an issue relating to agriculture and weather. I have raised it before in connection with different aspects of the farming calendar. I refer to farmers being constrained in their activities by calendar dates. The last issue of this kind that I raised concerned an extension of the date for slurry-spreading because of inclement weather. Today, I want to raise the issue...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (22 Oct 2019)

Paul Daly: Be nice, we are keeping your job over there.

Seanad: Wildlife (Amendment) Bill 2016: Report Stage (Resumed) (22 Oct 2019)

Paul Daly: On amendment No. 38, I understand the Minister is trying to provide further information on what is meant by a greenway, but I note his proposed definition specifically refers to non-motorised journeys. I would like clarification on whether this could possibly eliminate e-bikes and e-scooters from greenways.

Seanad: Wildlife (Amendment) Bill 2016: Report Stage (Resumed) (22 Oct 2019)

Paul Daly: I will second it for the sake of conversation.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Climate Action: Climate Change Advisory Council Annual Review 2019: Discussion (16 Oct 2019)

Paul Daly: Deputy Dooley has covered most of the points I wanted to raise. Regarding Professor FitzGerald's point about not becoming a farmer overnight and Deputy Dooley's point about a suckler farmer not becoming a forester overnight, how do we change that mentality so that a farmer wants to become a forester? I am not defending one way or the other. I agree with what Professor FitzGerald is saying....

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Climate Action: Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Special Report on Climate Change and Land Use: Discussion (16 Oct 2019)

Paul Daly: I invite the witnesses to pick up on the final point made by Mr. Callanan concerning the trailing shoe. That is welcomed and it is the right direction. I will not open old wounds, but we have had the argument about extensions on slurry spreading. From a water quality point of view it is totally contradictory that farmers have to farm by calendar and are forced to have the slurry out by...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Climate Action: Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Special Report on Climate Change and Land Use: Discussion (16 Oct 2019)

Paul Daly: Our committee recommended that the Department undertake a review of nitrogen fertiliser imports. I would like to know what stage that has reached.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Climate Action: Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Special Report on Climate Change and Land Use: Discussion (16 Oct 2019)

Paul Daly: Nutrient value aside, it was water quality that I was coming at. If, for whatever reason, there is a percentage of farmers who have to put it out and who were forced to put it out before Tuesday, when the ground was saturated, that is not helping water quality. That is the argument I am making.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Climate Action: Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Special Report on Climate Change and Land Use: Discussion (16 Oct 2019)

Paul Daly: I am not arguing that point. However, as they say, doctors differ and patients die. There will be people who are caught and we are forcing them to put it out on saturated land, which is the reason our water quality is dropping.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Climate Action: Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Special Report on Climate Change and Land Use: Discussion (16 Oct 2019)

Paul Daly: How do we bring the percentage of farmers who are not subscribers to Teagasc along with this?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Climate Action: Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Special Report on Climate Change and Land Use: Discussion (16 Oct 2019)

Paul Daly: I have a question on food waste, which links back to education. What role have the Department and Teagasc to play in trying to minimise food waste? Most of the proposals, suggestions and mooted solutions I have heard are all about reduction. If we take population growth into consideration, by 2050 we will need to double food production from its current levels, although not too many people...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Climate Action: Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Special Report on Climate Change and Land Use: Discussion (16 Oct 2019)

Paul Daly: Including taking into consideration food waste going forward. If 25% to 30% of all food produced is waste and we have to feed the growing population, this means that if we double our production, there will be a doubling of the waste. What consideration has been given to that?

Seanad: Wildlife (Amendment) Bill 2016: Report Stage (Resumed) (15 Oct 2019)

Paul Daly: As mentioned by the Minister of State and Senator Higgins, the amendments will either be passed or fall in their entirety. In that case we will not have an input to the make-up of the amendment. I want to flag that we will probably be bringing forward amendments to the amendments in the Dáil.

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (10 Oct 2019)

Paul Daly: I wish to refer to a matter which other Senators have raised before me. It is of vital importance that we contact the Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government, Deputy Eoghan Murphy, and encourage him to extend the slurry spreading deadline, at least regionally. Next Tuesday, 15 October, is the last day on which farmers may spread slurry. It has been impossible for them to spread...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (10 Oct 2019)

Paul Daly: Where are they going to live?
