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?...

Seanad: Health (Amendment) Bill 2021: Second Stage (1 Mar 2021)

Paul Daly: I am sharing time with Senator Byrne - two and a half minutes each. I welcome the Minister to the House and I welcome the legislation. I know it is a figure of speech when we welcome legislation but I wish I did not have to welcome it. I take umbrage with the argument that this legislation is too late. I firmly believe it is better late than never. The figures prove that 1% of the...

Seanad: National Climate and Air Roadmap for the Agriculture Sector: Statements (22 Feb 2021)

Paul Daly: I welcome the Minister to the Chamber and thank him for his contribution. I warmly welcome the publication of the Ag Climatise roadmap for the agriculture sector. Farmers will probably view it with some scepticism, but it is an excellent document. All of its contents are achievable. While there may be diverse opinions on how the targets will be achieved, I welcome the fact that they are...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Impact of Peat Shortages on the Horticulture Industry: Discussion (16 Feb 2021)

Paul Daly: I thank the Chairman and apologise, as I had difficulty unmuting my microphone. I welcome the witnesses and thank them for their submissions, which are all quite self-explanatory. In view of the fact that we are meeting the Department immediately after this meeting, I have one brief question which I would ask as many of the representatives as possible to elaborate upon. This is a follow-up...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Impact of Peat Shortages on the Horticulture Industry: Discussion (16 Feb 2021)

Paul Daly: I live in Kilbeggan, in the midlands. I come up the M6 and the M4. In recent months, it has been very noticeable to me that I meet all the loads of logs coming in from Scotland, and now I have been informed, in the earlier part of this meeting, that from here on in, I will meet loads of peat. While it is not Mr. Lucas's fault personally, can he not see the irony of this? I read the...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (12 Feb 2021)

Paul Daly: First, as the chairman of a board of management of a secondary school, I wish to be associated with everything that was said this morning about the current situation with the leaving certificate. I plead with the ASTI to return to the room. Due to what occurred yesterday, the debate is now public. This is not good for the class of 2021. Ultimately, the decision on whatever leaving...

Seanad: Mental Health and Covid-19: Statements (12 Feb 2021)

Paul Daly: I thank Senator Clifford-Lee for sharing time with me. I welcome the Minister of State and compliment her on the great work she has done since her appointment. Knowing her personally, I would have expected no less. Under such trying and testing times, she has proved herself to be a hands-on Minister of State. The progress she has made in such a short time is admirable. I welcome all the...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: EU Regulation on Veterinary Medicinal Products: Irish Co-operative Organisation Society (9 Feb 2021)

Paul Daly: I thank the witnesses for their submission. I am delighted that it appears everybody is singing off the one hymn sheet from a supply point of view in rural Ireland. I would like to hear ICOS's opinion on part of the Department's submission. The Department was very cognisant of the problem of antiparasitic resistance and in recognition of that it set up the antiparasitic resistance...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: EU Regulation on Veterinary Medicinal Products: Irish Co-operative Organisation Society (9 Feb 2021)

Paul Daly: I asked a question and I would like some feedback from the Irish Co-operative Organisation Society, ICOS, on what is going on in that stakeholder group that the Department is giving such kudos to.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: EU Regulation on Veterinary Medicinal Products (Resumed): Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine (9 Feb 2021)

Paul Daly: May I interject through the Chair?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: EU Regulation on Veterinary Medicinal Products (Resumed): Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine (9 Feb 2021)

Paul Daly: This is the submission which we have all received and were mandated to have read before the meeting in the interest of time saving for questioning of the Department officials. The submission is being read verbatim, which is going to eat up much time for interaction. We have all read the submission, as instructed, before the meeting.
