Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Indecon Review of Irish Harness Racing Sector: Irish Harness Racing Association (16 Jan 2018)

Paul Daly: I welcome the two gentlemen and thank them for a comprehensive and passionate presentation. Their passion for this sport and industry could never be questioned. The witnesses have already mentioned what I wanted to address. I raised it during the debate in the Seanad on the horse and greyhound fund. The five-year strategic plan seems to be a precondition before the Minister budges on any...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Roles, Responsibilities and Key Programmes of Bord Bia: Discussion (23 Jan 2018)

Paul Daly: I thank Ms McCarthy for her comprehensive presentation. I would like to ask a couple of questions about the market prioritisation study she mentioned. Origin Green is well established and has developed many markets. Is there a strategy for developing new markets, as opposed to extending existing markets? Are there comparisons to be made in that regard? It is sometimes suggested that it...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Roles, Responsibilities and Key Programmes of Bord Bia: Discussion (23 Jan 2018)

Paul Daly: I am sorry to interrupt, Chairman, but I believe a vote is due to take place in the Seanad. Can one of the television monitors display the proceedings of the Seanad?

Seanad: Agricultural Issues: Statements (24 Jan 2018)

Paul Daly: I thank the Minister for his statement and welcome him to the House. Fianna Fáil is committed to protecting and developing agriculture for the 140,000 farming families in Ireland who are the main driver of the rural economy and the custodians of the Irish countryside. We believe in the family farm model of agriculture that puts environmentally and socially sustainable farming at its...

Seanad: Agricultural Issues: Statements (24 Jan 2018)

Paul Daly: I welcome the Minister's announcement on the fodder crisis. However, despite repeated calls for a fodder support scheme, the Minster has only indicated his intention to help pay for the transportation of fodder. Farmers in many areas across the west and north west are experiencing severe fodder shortages. That is putting a massive financial strain on already hard-pressed farmers and the...

Seanad: Agricultural Issues: Statements (24 Jan 2018)

Paul Daly: Monkey see, monkey do is not an excuse.

Seanad: Agricultural Issues: Statements (24 Jan 2018)

Paul Daly: In fairness, I did not say that.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Special Reports on EU Support for Young Farmers and the Rural Affairs Programme: European Court of Auditors (24 Jan 2018)

Paul Daly: I welcome the witnesses and the opportunity to engage with them. What I have to say is very brief and a little ironic. I welcome the fact Senator Mac Lochlainn has highlighted the overemphasis on bureaucracy down through the entire system. It brought back to my mind a conversation I had with a public official who was dealing with an application with which I was involved. I queried the...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Hen Harrier Programme: Discussion (30 Jan 2018)

Paul Daly: I welcome the officials. I did not get involved in the earlier conversation. I gave priority to people who are from counties affected by this. I am from an area where this is not a major issue. I sat back, listened and learned. I was shocked to hear some of the stories and at the realisation of how big a problem this is with the farmers effected. I was almost equally as shocked at the...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Hen Harrier Programme: Discussion (30 Jan 2018)

Paul Daly: I wish to follow up briefly based on the concluding points from Mr. Monaghan. I have looked at the presentation and done some sums. The worked example suggests that a farmer with in the region of 15 ha could get a maximum of up to €4,000 and that a farmer with 40 ha could get a maximum of €7,000. If we do some basic sums, we get an average payment of €5,500. Let us...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Hen Harrier Programme: Discussion (30 Jan 2018)

Paul Daly: Is Mr. Monaghan saying the €25 million will eventually be divided among 1,100 farmers?

Seanad: Order of Business (31 Jan 2018)

Paul Daly: Once again I raise the issue of escalating insurance premiums, something that has been raised in the House regularly over months, and maybe years. It is having a devastating effect on SMEs and people in commercial entities but they can pass on the increased premium through the product or service they provide. This morning's "Today with Seán O'Rourke" programme featured representatives...

Seanad: Vehicle Registration Data (Automated Searching and Exchange) Bill 2018: Second Stage (31 Jan 2018)

Paul Daly: I welcome the Minister to the House for the Second Stage debate on the Vehicle Registration Data (Automated Searching and Exchange) Bill 2018. As he has said, the Bill gives effect to the vehicle registration component of EU Council decisions 615 and 616 of 2008, which are known as the Prüm decisions. The aim of these decisions is to improve interstate co-operation among the nations of...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Aquaculture Licensing Process: Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine (6 Feb 2018)

Paul Daly: I will be brief. Similar to the Chairman, I am from a landlocked county and am not nearly as knowledgeable on this issue as my colleagues, all of whom are from coastal counties. I have learned much from today. It was a good presentation and there were good interactions, from which basis I will ask a couple of questions. Based on the fact that the Department has been rolling over...

Paul Daly: The original licence.

Paul Daly: -----or are there new ones?

Seanad: Order of Business (13 Feb 2018)

Paul Daly: I second Senator Gallagher's proposal to amend the Order of Business. Now is the time to start dealing with these issues. We have lost a lot of jobs already in the mushroom industry and, with the announcement of imminent job losses in Monaghan, this is Brexit coming at us. We are all talking about it and posturing but it is time to stop the rot. It is vitally important when we hear of 31...
