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.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: The Impact of Brexit on the Agriculture Industry: Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine (2 Feb 2021)

Paul Daly: I welcome the Minister and the representatives from the Department. My first question is on mixed milk and will follow on from something that has been put on the agenda, including by the last line of the Department's document on market tools. How would that issue affect all Irish products? If Irish milk products need to go into private storage or intervention, how will the percentage of...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Challenges for the Forestry Sector: Department of Agriculture and the Marine (29 Jan 2021)

Paul Daly: I will be brief. In terms of issues raised the majority of the responses given have been-----

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Challenges for the Forestry Sector: Department of Agriculture and the Marine (29 Jan 2021)

Paul Daly: I confirm that I am in LH2000. I would like to revisit some of the responses given to Deputy Fitzmaurice, which I do not accept. We are going nowhere if that is the quality of responses we are going to be given. It was stated that the number has been reduced from 4,700 to 4,500 since October. Like Deputy Fitzmaurice, while Deputy Kehoe was speaking I did the sums. Giving the Department...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Challenges for the Forestry Sector: Department of Agriculture and the Marine (29 Jan 2021)

Paul Daly: A lot of my questions have not been answered.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Challenges for the Forestry Sector: Department of Agriculture and the Marine (29 Jan 2021)

Paul Daly: I also asked about the prioritisation of licensing by volume.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Challenges for the Forestry Sector: Department of Agriculture and the Marine (29 Jan 2021)

Paul Daly: To return to the section of the submission I referred to earlier, applications are now being cherry-picked due to volume. I have a serious concern about this and I can only imagine that if I was a farmer, a private individual who had a small application in at present, how he or she would be feeling on hearing this revelation today. Based on the problems I foresee in using this system into...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Challenges for the Forestry Sector: Department of Agriculture and the Marine (29 Jan 2021)

Paul Daly: Could I have a brief comment on the possibility of an amnesty to try to wipe out the backlog?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Challenges for the Forestry Sector: Department of Agriculture and the Marine (29 Jan 2021)

Paul Daly: I am sorry to interrupt, Chairman, but I meant to ask a question about imported timber earlier. Given the fact that much of it is coming from the UK, has Brexit caused any problems?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Impact of Brexit on Fisheries Industry: Discussion (Resumed) (22 Jan 2021)

Paul Daly: I thank the Minister for his presentation. While I agree with what he has said in that what is there is better than no deal, it is far from desirable from the perspective of the fishing industry. Some of my points have already been raised. It seems there is a disproportionate reduction in our quota from the European side. Has due regard been given to what were known as The Hague...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Impact of Brexit on Fisheries Industry: Discussion (Resumed) (22 Jan 2021)

Paul Daly: I would also like to be associated with the Chairman's expressions of sympathy to the family of Mr. Hugo Boyle. At the last meeting, I asked the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine about the Hague preferences and I would like the witnesses to elaborate on how that can be utilised on the European side. It was initially set up to give the Irish and the UK a degree of preferential...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Impact of Brexit on the Agrifood Industry: Discussion (Resumed) (15 Dec 2020)

Paul Daly: I welcome the representatives from the ICSA and the ICMSA and thank them for their submissions which we received today. We are all aware of the fact that we are operating in a vacuum at the moment. Much of what we will discuss could turn out to be hypothetical. As was mentioned previously, it is not looking good. Even the best case scenario being flagged would give rise to issues in...
