Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Veterinary Council of Ireland Report: Discussion (24 Sep 2019)

Paul Daly: That is a different ball game altogether. That is a very flippant answer.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Veterinary Council of Ireland Report: Discussion (24 Sep 2019)

Paul Daly: We are all answerable to banks in different scenarios. We could all say that somebody else owns our car or our house. That is a very flippant answer to what was a very serious question. It is an unacceptable answer.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Veterinary Council of Ireland Report: Discussion (24 Sep 2019)

Paul Daly: The bank was not doing Mr. Ó Scanaill's invoicing or his testing. It was not providing the service.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Veterinary Council of Ireland Report: Discussion (24 Sep 2019)

Paul Daly: One would have to be the employer.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Veterinary Council of Ireland Report: Discussion (24 Sep 2019)

Paul Daly: If one is employed by a corporate, one is not the employer so how does one get paid for doing TB testing?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Veterinary Council of Ireland Report: Discussion (24 Sep 2019)

Paul Daly: I rest my case. A corporate-owned practice cannot carry out TB testing so the large animal will be dropped. Such practices will not provide the service in an area because they cannot draw down wages for doing TB testing.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Veterinary Council of Ireland Report: Discussion (24 Sep 2019)

Paul Daly: We do not need clarification from the Department. What the Department is doing is black and white. The clarification must come from the Veterinary Council of Ireland. How is the council going to get over this hurdle? The Department is very clear that it will only pay an employer and it will only pay a veterinary practitioner. I am asking the Veterinary Council of Ireland how...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Veterinary Council of Ireland Report: Discussion (24 Sep 2019)

Paul Daly: He or she must be the employer-----

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Forestry Sector and Climate Action Plan: Discussion (9 Jul 2019)

Paul Daly: I welcome the Minister of State and his officials. I thank the Minister of State for his comprehensive report. I would like a more detailed breakdown of the numbers. The Minister of State indicated that the target is 8,000 ha and that we are achieving 5,500 ha. When harvest is incorporated what is the net gain in new forestry? How many hectares of existing forest are being harvested...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Alleged Issue of Abuse of Greyhounds: Bord na gCon (9 Jul 2019)

Paul Daly: Most of what I was going to ask about has been covered by Deputies Cahill and Penrose. This is repetitive, but on the horrific issues raised by the RTÉ programme, when we sit back, look at it logically and seek constructive solutions, we have to return to the issue of traceability. If there was a proper system of traceability, dogs would not go missing and there would not be illegal...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Alleged Issue of Abuse of Greyhounds: Irish Coursing Club (9 Jul 2019)

Paul Daly: Senator Lombard touched on traceability, which I wanted to raise. I will ask almost the same question I asked of the IGB. How does the ICC expect the matter to be worked out? What onus will be on owners to register or chip pups, and how can it be made a success? Knee-jerk reactions after the programme and so on are all good and fine, but there has to be traceability of greyhounds from...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Alleged Issue of Abuse of Greyhounds: Bord na gCon (9 Jul 2019)

Paul Daly: Is it proposed to impose them?

Seanad: EU-Mercosur Trade Agreement: Statements (3 Jul 2019)

Paul Daly: I think it was Mick Doyle, a famous Irish rugby player, coach and pundit, who coined the phrase "get your retaliation in early". I am intrigued to see that the Minister has taken that up today in her opening statement by criticising Opposition Members for playing politics. I for one have no intention of playing politics or going for headlines, punchlines or soundbites on an issue that is so...

Seanad: EU-Mercosur Trade Agreement: Statements (3 Jul 2019)

Paul Daly: That is the 99,000 tonnes we will take, on top of the 270,000 tonnes we take already with tariff, because it is produced cheaply due to the methods. The tariff is paid but the beef remains more competitively priced than Irish and European beef. There is never a good time for a bad story or bad news for any sector. We export 90% of our beef and in turn 90% of that goes to the UK. If there...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Animal Health Levies (Pigs) Regulations 2019: Motion (2 Jul 2019)

Paul Daly: I welcome this concept also. I agree wholeheartedly with it by virtue of the fact that the industry has been brought in on it. A concern in the industry is how strongly ring-fenced the contribution will be within the AHI to ensure it is spent in the pig sector. It has been questioned whether the contribution would simply go into the AHI's overall budget and whether it could end up...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (27 Jun 2019)

Paul Daly: I congratulate Senator Grace O'Sullivan on her election and wish her the very best of luck in her new role as an MEP. She will be a great loss to this House. She is the third member of the agricultural panel to move on for one reason or another since we were elected. As someone on that panel a small bit of me thinks long may it continue. I want to raise the same issue as Senator Feighan....

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (27 Jun 2019)

Paul Daly: On a point of order, as the spokesperson for my party, I was accused in the House this morning of being hypocritical with regard to the Greyhound Racing Act 2019. Fianna Fáil opposed an amendment that would have placed a blanket ban on licensed exports of greyhounds to white-listed countries. What I said this morning was that the greyhounds that were featured in last night's...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (26 Jun 2019)

Paul Daly: I rise today to raise the issue of electric vehicle charging points, but not the lack of same or the need for more. I have been contacted by a number of people who recently invested in electric vehicles in regard to their inability to access charging points, particularly in rural areas and small villages, as non-electric vehicles are being parked or abandoned in front of them. This is...

Seanad: Criminal Justice (Judicial Discretion) (Amendment) Bill 2019: First Stage (26 Jun 2019)

Paul Daly: I second the proposal.

Seanad Committee on the Withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union: Engagement with the Central Bank of Ireland (19 Jun 2019)

Paul Daly: I welcome the representatives from the Central Bank. I have some brief questions to flesh out what was said in the opening statement. I accept that the first issue I raise is not in our remit but it is related as it will affect us. To what extent has the Central Bank looked at the British economy post Brexit? Sterling is a stand-alone currency and while Britain is not in the eurozone, it...
