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 IGFA and Bord Bia and thank them for their submissions. Last week, the Irish Co-operative Organisation Society, ICOS, brought to our attention the issue of milk which comes across the Border and leaves the island as an Irish product. It was highlighted last week that, under existing EU free trade arrangements, such products could be identified as a...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Impact of Brexit on the Agri-food Industry: Discussion (8 Dec 2020)

Paul Daly: I welcome the representatives from the IFA and the INHFA, and I thank them for their attendance today. We have been discussing these issues since 2016, almost within a vacuum, and while we might be getting closer to D-Day, we are no wiser as to what the outcome will be. We are all aware and have hashed out and discussed at length, the issues and the problems with tariffs, so there is not...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Impact of Brexit on the Agri-food Industry: Discussion (8 Dec 2020)

Paul Daly: I have a few quick-fire questions with little comment. I thank the three sets off witnesses who are here this evening to answer our questions. I have gone through all the submissions. We have been discussing this topic for four years, so much of it is not new. I want to elaborate on two points from the ICOS submission and then bring the others into the equation. Of all the groups to...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Scrutiny of EU Legislative Proposals (1 Dec 2020)

Paul Daly: I thank the Minister for his very comprehensive statement. Calling a spade a spade, we are speaking into a vacuum and we are taking a shot in the dark here because we know that nothing can be agreed until everything is agreed, and the allowable catch or the quotas cannot be agreed until we know where we are on Brexit. So the brief questions that I have are more Brexit-related because I am...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Scrutiny of EU Legislative Proposals (1 Dec 2020)

Paul Daly: I am sorry, I did not hear the IGFA being named and thought the tillage sector was not included.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Scrutiny of EU Legislative Proposals (1 Dec 2020)

Paul Daly: When are the tillage farmers coming in?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Scrutiny of EU Legislative Proposals (1 Dec 2020)

Paul Daly: I am interested in the tillage sector. I did not hear the Chairman refer to the IGFA initially.

Seanad: Horse and Greyhound Racing Fund Regulations 2020: Motion (25 Nov 2020)

Paul Daly: I declare an interest in this sector, as I am the acting voluntary chairman of Kilbeggan racecourse. I would fit into Senator Boyhan's category of horse breeder, being the owner of one brood mare and her offspring, which I could call very slow horses.

Seanad: Horse and Greyhound Racing Fund Regulations 2020: Motion (25 Nov 2020)

Paul Daly: I have a serious interest in this sector, and I take exception to some of the remarks that have been made. I know they were made in good faith and with the best of intentions for the sector, but all those remarks seem to relate to the animal welfare side and to emanate from the famous RTÉ "Prime Time Investigates" programme. While I cannot, and would not, justify anything that was seen...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Horse and Greyhound Fund Regulations 2020: Motion (24 Nov 2020)

Paul Daly: I welcome the Minister. While it may already be known, I want to put on record that I am chairperson of a rural Irish racetrack, namely, Kilbeggan racetrack, and I am a big breeder with one brood mare. Having said that, it will be obvious that I will be supporting the proposals here. Kilbeggan is a one-horse town but we have a racetrack and the vitality and the life that having that...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Recall of Sanitiser Products: Discussion (24 Nov 2020)

Paul Daly: As some of what I had intended to raise has been covered by Deputy Carthy, I will turn to the sanctioning of the company that supplied the product. The product has been a cause of skin irritation. In case people have long-term issues down the line, have we examined how the company of supply will be held to account? In responding to Deputy Carthy, the Minister might answer my questions...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Challenges for the Forestry Sector: Discussion (Resumed) (17 Nov 2020)

Paul Daly: I understand the time constraints so I will be as brief as possible. I thank Ms Hurley and Mr. Carlin for the presentation. Following on from the point made by the Chairman regarding just 16% of the timber needed for 2021 being currently licensed, I ask the witnesses to elaborate on that point with regard to afforestation licensing. What percentage of planting is required for next year and...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Challenges for the Forestry Sector: Discussion (Resumed) (17 Nov 2020)

Paul Daly: I will be as brief as possible. I welcome the Minister of State and congratulate her. It is brilliant to see a fellow Senator from the Upper House in a ministerial role. As she will have noted from previous contributions and our deliberations during the past week, the word “crisis” has been used and it has not been used loosely. I conscious she inherited this issue. I want...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Challenges for the Forestry Sector: Discussion (Resumed) (17 Nov 2020)

Paul Daly: Mr. Hayes is giving me the average statistic, but I am asking him what should the average time be. Mr. Hayes is the departmental official responsible for this. I do not want statistics: I can work that sum out for myself as to how long the applications took. What should the average time be?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Regulation on Veterinary Medicinal Products: Discussion (12 Nov 2020)

Paul Daly: I thank the witnesses for their presentation. I have been raising this issue and beating the drum for some time. If we do not get this right, I see the potential consequences for the farming community, the merchants and the veterinary union. We could walk ourselves into a situation where we will affect animal welfare issues. I thank the Chairman and my fellow committee members for their...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Regulation on Veterinary Medicinal Products: Discussion (12 Nov 2020)

Paul Daly: I cannot accept the claim that there is a significant increase in antiparasitic resistance from departmental official.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Regulation on Veterinary Medicinal Products: Discussion (12 Nov 2020)

Paul Daly: We were in the middle of answering my questions when we got sidetracked based on some of Ms Garvan's comments. It is important, and as a farmer I have to put it on the record, that Ms Garvan's in her last answer on the problem did not say any one thing that would not have been said in a conversation between me as a farmer and the responsible person in the licensed merchants who supply me....

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Regulation on Veterinary Medicinal Products: Discussion (12 Nov 2020)

Paul Daly: To be brutally honest and frank, I am very much taken aback. I would worry about where we are going if departmental officials answer a question by saying they are new and were not in post at the time. Bureaucracy and paper trails cause a lot of problems, but all the paper trails are there. If I had only been in a Department for five minutes, I would have my homework done before addressing...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Challenges for the Forestry Sector: Discussion (Resumed) (3 Nov 2020)

Paul Daly: I will ask a couple of brief questions and make an observation and whoever feels they are most appropriately positioned to answer them can take them. Mr. McAuley mentioned in his submission that we can take forestry forward to where we want it to be and achieve the targets set out with "enthusiastic participation". How will we gain the enthusiasm of farmers going forward based on the...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Challenges for the Forestry Sector: Discussion (Resumed) (3 Nov 2020)

Paul Daly: I thank Mr. Gowran for his comprehensive submission to the committee. I will be brief as I know the Chairman is under a time constraint. I want to get more feedback from Mr. Gowran on a point Deputy Carthy raised. It relates to ash dieback and how he believes that situation has been handled to date. What could have been done better? What should have been done and what needs to be done...
