Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (27 Mar 2020)

Tim Lombard: I realise time is tight. I support colleagues' views on the great effort being made to tackle this unfortunate virus. We have spoken about the economy, education and the health service but the agriculture service and agriculture community also need a mention. I want to talk about the genuine mental stress farmers are under. The Cathaoirleach produced an important report many years ago on...

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Farm Safety (18 Dec 2019)

Tim Lombard: I assure the Minister of State that it is not a sign of things to come. It is great to have him here again. It is the second time I have had the pleasure of seeing him perform in the Seanad. He was here last week, I think, and was very comprehensive in his response. The Commencement matter I have tabled concerns the need for the Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation to provide...

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Farm Safety (18 Dec 2019)

Tim Lombard: No, but I thank the Minister of State for his contribution. It is important that we get the message out there that there is so much happening in this space. I saw the line of clothes at the National Ploughing Championships. It was a frightening demonstration of the loss of life happening on farms. That is the kind of promotion we need to see. Farmers work on their own, so they need a...

Seanad: Teachtaireachtaí ón Dáil - Messages from Dáil (18 Dec 2019)

Tim Lombard: Dáil Éireann passed the Investment Limited Partnerships (Amendment) Bill 2019 on 17 December 2019, to which the agreement of Seanad Éireann is desired. Dáil Éireann passed the Appropriation Bill 2019 on 17 December 2019 and it has been sent to Seanad Éireann for recommendations. Dáil Éireann passed the Migration of Participating Securities Bill 2019...

Seanad: Microbeads (Prohibition) Bill 2019: Second Stage (17 Dec 2019)

Tim Lombard: I welcome the Minister and I acknowledge the importance of the Bill. It is significant legislation and is something we have been talking about since 2016, since the beginning of this Seanad. I wish to acknowledge the former Green Party Senator from Waterford, Grace O'Sullivan, MEP, who was very much involved in this space and she spoke passionately on this issue many times in the Chamber....

Seanad: Microbeads (Prohibition) Bill 2019: Committee and Remaining Stages (17 Dec 2019)

Tim Lombard: At 10.30 tomorrow morning.

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Bus Services (12 Dec 2019)

Tim Lombard: I welcome the Minister of State and thank him for taking this matter on behalf of the Minister. The Minister must to make a statement on the need for funding for the installation of wheelchair-accessible bus stops in west Cork. West Cork is a huge geographical area. The frightening statistic is that there are only two wheelchair-accessible bus stops in the entire west Cork region, one in...

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Bus Services (12 Dec 2019)

Tim Lombard: I thank the Minister of State. He mentioned the programme being rolled out in Carrigtwohill, Midleton, Castlemartyr and Youghal. It should be extended to other regions, such as west Cork, and it is to be hoped there will be a budget for that. I am trying to push for the programme in east Cork, which is delivering 15 bus stops, to have funding for 2020 so that it can be expanded to west...

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: School Transport Eligibility (11 Dec 2019)

Tim Lombard: I welcome the Minister of State. I put down this Commencement matter on the school transportation scheme because it is an issue on which I have been very active the last six or eight months. The school transportation scheme is, in many ways, flawed from head to toe. We need a total review of it and on how we are going to deliver school transportation for the children of rural Ireland who...

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: School Transport Eligibility (11 Dec 2019)

Tim Lombard: I welcome the response, which is important. Earlier I spoke about the frustration felt by parents. This issue is about good hardworking people doing so much. The amount of work that is required is going to be immense in many ways but it is important that the review happens and that people have an opportunity to make submissions.

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Road Projects (5 Dec 2019)

Tim Lombard: I welcome my colleague from Cork to the Chamber and acknowledge his presence. As the Leas-Cheann Comhairle suggested, he has been in this Chamber many times. I wish to raise the issue of the N71 and its status among the national priorities. The road is a major artery going into west Cork. It starts at Bishopstown and goes all the way to Bandon, Clonakilty, Bantry and Glengarriff, and then...

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Road Projects (5 Dec 2019)

Tim Lombard: I thank the Minister of State for his comprehensive response. The information he gave is important and shows the activity on the N71. However, the real issue is that it is piecemeal. There is a project here and a project there, a bypass is proposed for Bandon which is slowly going through a process which will be welcome, but there is no overall plan for the 180 km. What the Minister of...

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Closed-Circuit Television Systems Provision (28 Nov 2019)

Tim Lombard: I welcome the Minister of State to the House. I tabled my Commencement matter as I seek clarification, under the current legislation, regarding the community CCTV scheme pertaining to County Cork. In particular, I would like to know who controls the data and when the schemes will be operational. I brought this important issue to the floor of the Seanad because several towns in County Cork,...

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Closed-Circuit Television Systems Provision (28 Nov 2019)

Tim Lombard: I thank the Minister of State for the response. We are very much aware of the grants available. I believe Cork County Council has drawn down nine of those grants. Four of them are in limbo at the moment over the running costs and who controls the data. Cork County Council has taken a different view from any other local authority. It has an issue with the data and the running costs. The...

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Schools Building Projects Status (28 Nov 2019)

Tim Lombard: I thank the Minister and we will await the arrival of the Minister of State, Deputy Catherine Byrne.

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Services for People with Disabilities (28 Nov 2019)

Tim Lombard: I welcome the Minister of State back to the Chamber.

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Road Projects Status (28 Nov 2019)

Tim Lombard: I welcome the Minister of State, Deputy Griffin, to the Chamber.

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (28 Nov 2019)

Tim Lombard: I would like to raise an important issue in the House this afternoon. We need to have a debate with the Minister for Education and Skills, Deputy McHugh, and probably the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, Deputy Ross, on what their priorities are for next year's school transportation scheme. I became involved in this issue last September and October, when we had children and their...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Communications, Climate Action and Environment: EirGrid: Chairman Designate (26 Nov 2019)

Tim Lombard: I compliment Mr. Tuohy on his comprehensive responses here this afternoon. It has been a pleasure to listen to him. I was going to ask about the interconnector but other members have already done so. The Celtic interconnector is a major part of our infrastructure and the scheme will affect Ireland. One wonders, particularly in my part of the world, where the interconnector will land but...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Communications, Climate Action and Environment: Data Collection by Digital Assistants: Discussion (26 Nov 2019)

Tim Lombard: I thank the contributors to the debate, which has been very informative. Does Mr. Sutherland think there is an information deficit among the public regarding this issue? Does he think the normal mother, father or other adult is aware of the capabilities of whatever device is in front of them? Does he believe there is a deficit of this information? Do the public realise that the phones in...
