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: Is there any fear of a mini-overheat of the economy if that was to happen?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Animal Welfare and the Control and Management of Horses: Discussion (18 Jun 2019)

Paul Daly: I wish to put my apologies to the witnesses on the record. I had a brief meeting at 4 p.m. that turned out to be not so brief and as I was coming back we were called to a vote in the Seanad. I will not go over what has probably been raised already. I will read the transcript and if there is anything that is not in there that I would like to know about, I will send the witnesses an email on...

Seanad: Farm Safety Agency Bill 2018: Second Stage (29 May 2019)

Paul Daly: I move: "That the Bill be now read a Second Time." I welcome the Minister to the House. I will begin by providing some background information on farm safety issues and fatalities on farms, of which not everyone may be aware. Unfortunately in the year to May, nine of the 17 recorded workplace deaths happened on farms or in the agricultural sector. The sector accounted for more than 50% of...

Seanad: Farm Safety Agency Bill 2018: Second Stage (29 May 2019)

Paul Daly: I thank all my colleagues for their support today. As I said at the outset, this is such an important issue but I am a little taken aback by the Minister of State's response, to be honest. Perhaps the Minister of State had to take the approach he took but I had hoped that under the circumstances and given the topic of conversation, he would not take a defensive attitude. I was very...

Seanad: Farm Safety Agency Bill 2018: Second Stage (29 May 2019)

Paul Daly: Next Tuesday.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Future of the Beef Sector in the Context of Food Wise 2025: Discussion (Resumed) (28 May 2019)

Paul Daly: I thank the Chair, and I thank the witnesses for their presentation and for their attendance. I have a comment on the overall scene. I welcome the presentation and the good work Teagasc is doing, but we are all familiar with the 21:28: 51 model that is going around when it comes to beef, wherein 21 cent of every euro that is spent across the counter by a person buying Irish beef, 21 cent or...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Future of the Beef Sector in the Context of Food Wise 2025: Discussion (Resumed) (28 May 2019)

Paul Daly: I welcome the comprehensive and detailed presentation. It is one I will take away and study in detail. It contains so much information that, until I analyse it, there seem to be few questions left that need to be asked. I would like a further comment on the reported cartel operating within the beef industry in terms of price fixing or communication within the sector before prices are...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Future of the Beef Sector in the Context of Food Wise 2025: Discussion (Resumed) (28 May 2019)

Paul Daly: Mr. O'Leary is using the argument of the final output being a maximum, if participants meet all their targets, of 5% of the beef industry. Regarding the point Deputy Cahill made, how far back down the trading curves or trends does the CCPC go to examine this? To buy into this scheme and produce the 5% of the beef if all targets are met, one must buy all one's inputs, including unrelated...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Future of the Beef Sector in the Context of Food Wise 2025: Discussion (Resumed) (28 May 2019)

Paul Daly: My question about mergers and acquisitions was not addressed.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Veterinary Practices: Discussion (21 May 2019)

Paul Daly: I apologise. We had to go away to vote in the Seanad. I pick up on the tail end of Deputy Penrose's contribution. When one leaves, one can end up going over old ground because one does not know what has been discussed while one was away. As I say, I pick up from the tail end of Deputy Penrose's response. What I wanted to know from the council was what the catalyst was for starting the...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Veterinary Practices: Discussion (21 May 2019)

Paul Daly: I have a brief comment on that answer to my question. The Veterinary Council of Ireland did not start with the Attorney General. It was advised to get its own advice and all of this has been explained. When that advice was received did the council highlight issues with section 54 whereby the council thought it prudent to highlight to the Department that there may be an issue, rather than...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Veterinary Practices: Discussion (21 May 2019)

Paul Daly: I asked what was the catalyst for change. The submission states "Historically, section 54(2) of the Veterinary Practitioners Act 2005 was interpreted to prevent a body corporate from owning a veterinary practice" so from its inception until December 2017 or January 2018, the council worked with a basis in its interpretation that a corporate body would not be allowed to buy a veterinary...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Veterinary Practices: Discussion (21 May 2019)

Paul Daly: The witness is basically saying a decision was made that it was in the best interests of animal health and welfare, veterinary practitioners and farmers to change the interpretation of the Act so corporate bodies could buy veterinary practices.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Food Democracy: Trócaire (14 May 2019)

Paul Daly: I welcome the representatives from Trócaire and PELUM Uganda. I seek clarification on agriculture in Uganda. Is there a transition at the moment from previous agricultural methods to agroecology or is the agriculture sector in Uganda only beginning to grow now on the back of the stimulus from the new approach? In order to get a better picture of the land ownership situation in...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Future of the Beef Sector: Discussion (Resumed) (14 May 2019)

Paul Daly: I welcome the representatives from Kepak and Glanbia. I also welcome the initiative. We all know the crisis facing our beef industry. It is welcome that somebody is taking an initiative. This initiative in its fruition is very much in its infancy. I find it difficult to see how it will take off or be successful or make any solid improvement for beef farmers in the sector. My...

Seanad Committee on the Withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union: Engagement on Citizenship Rights (8 May 2019)

Paul Daly: I thank the witnesses for coming here today and for their eye-opening presentations. I was not aware of many of the consequences of Brexit. I ask that we park Brexit for a few seconds, which I know is impossible to do in any walk of life in the current period, as I want to get my head around how we got here. If there was no Brexit, hypothetically speaking, where would we be today? Has a...

Seanad: Wildlife (Amendment) Act 2016: Committee Stage (Resumed) (9 Apr 2019)

Paul Daly: I and my party support the amendment. I agree wholeheartedly with Senator Burke's statement. I have come across some instances where community projects on the outskirts of towns and villages include one little corner of a natural heritage area on the site map. The whole project is then thrown into jeopardy. Community projects developed in and around natural heritage areas will in many...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Future of the Beef Sector in the Context of Food Wise 2025: Discussion (Resumed) (9 Apr 2019)

Paul Daly: I was a member of the Joint Committee on Climate Action. The presentation would have been more appropriate to that committee. The brief today was the future of the Irish beef sector and while the witness highlighted many of the negatives and mentioned just transition in passing, he has not given us anything that we could incorporate into the report we are compiling as to what could be that...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (4 Apr 2019)

Paul Daly: I second the proposal of Senator Humphreys to amend the Order of Business. I raise an issue that I have raised on many occasions. It is a topic we try to avoid as much as possible because it is becoming such a nightmare. I refer to Brexit and its effect on the beef sector. Fianna Fáil moved a Private Members' motion in the Dáil last week which was accepted by the Government....

Seanad: National Training Fund: Statements (28 Feb 2019)

Paul Daly: I thank the Minister of State. When is it proposed to sit again?
