Protection of Accident Victims from Non-Consensual Recording of Images Bill 2022: Second Stage [Private Members] (13 Jun 2024)

Duncan Smith: I thank the Minister of State and his officials. I certainly took those points in the manner in which they were intended, that is, constructively. I will go back and look at them all in an attempt to improve this and bring it forward to Committee Stage. This is exactly how this Parliament should work in terms of putting something forward and having a good reasoned debate and then getting...

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: Does Deputy Lawless wish to contribute?

Protection of Accident Victims from Non-Consensual Recording of Images Bill 2022: Second Stage [Private Members] (13 Jun 2024)

James Lawless: Yes. I commend Deputy Smith for introducing the Bill. As an aside, the Ceann Comhairle has already referenced those watching from outside. It might be worth clarifying that though this Chamber is often sparse, many of us are watching diligently in our office, as I was five minutes ago when I saw this matter being raised by Deputy Smith. I made my way to the Chamber to speak on it. I was...

Protection of Accident Victims from Non-Consensual Recording of Images Bill 2022: Second Stage [Private Members] (13 Jun 2024)

Duncan Smith: Criminal.

Protection of Accident Victims from Non-Consensual Recording of Images Bill 2022: Second Stage [Private Members] (13 Jun 2024)

James Lawless: Criminal. It strikes me that there are a plethora of often overlapping and complex frameworks surrounding the capturing of images, be that video footage or stills, from the point of view of GDPR, the constitutional right to privacy, surveillance Acts and the interception of telecoms. We have had many such debates in the justice committee in recent times, not least on facial recognition...

Protection of Accident Victims from Non-Consensual Recording of Images Bill 2022: Second Stage [Private Members] (13 Jun 2024)

Duncan Smith: I have had support from Deputies and parties of Government.

Protection of Accident Victims from Non-Consensual Recording of Images Bill 2022: Second Stage [Private Members] (13 Jun 2024)

James Lawless: Let us hope that continues. No pressure, Minister.

Protection of Accident Victims from Non-Consensual Recording of Images Bill 2022: Second Stage [Private Members] (13 Jun 2024)

Thomas Byrne: I thank the Deputy for bringing forward the Bill. The Government will not oppose it. I look forward to engaging with Deputies today but, in general, the Minister of State, Deputy Browne, and the Minister, Deputy McEntee, look forward to engaging with Deputy Smith on this. We have all been appalled at the phenomenon of sharing videos of accidents and their aftermath. Some truly shocking...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Animal Welfare (13 Jun 2024)

Simon Coveney: I believe the Minister of State, the Minister, Deputy McConalogue, and the Department are taking this very seriously. However, I have a few questions. Regarding my question about Shannonside Foods Limited and whether it should continue to be operating, my view is that it should close until we have more clarity about the evidence we saw last night. If it is to remain open, it needs to be...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Animal Welfare (13 Jun 2024)

Thomas Byrne: The footage shown last night was appalling and the actions of the individuals shown are abhorrent and completely unacceptable. Deputy Coveney raised some interesting questions. I am reluctant to go too far in light of potential prosecutions and the Department's determination to bring the full force of the law to bear. However, I have no doubt that horse butchers in European countries where...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Animal Welfare (13 Jun 2024)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: As someone who lives in Kildare and loves horses and animals in general, I feel compelled to say that we appreciate the Minister of State being here and we know he is not responsible in that Department, but I would think that the public outside looking in at this debate would want one particular question answered. Is that place - that horror hole - open today doing what we saw on TV last...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Animal Welfare (13 Jun 2024)

Thomas Byrne: As I am not in the Department of agriculture, I am not in a position to answer that but I will make sure that question gets put to the Minister for agriculture as a matter of urgency.

Protection of Accident Victims from Non-Consensual Recording of Images Bill 2022: Second Stage [Private Members] (13 Jun 2024)

Duncan Smith: Before I begin, I wish Martin all the best in his retirement and thank him very much. I had the privilege of being in this House as both a Member and a staff member for a number of years, and the courtesy I was shown did not differ. That is the same for everyone, which is a testament to Martin and his colleagues, so I wish him all the best. I move: "That the Bill be now read a Second...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Septic Tanks (13 Jun 2024)

Joe Flaherty: I thank the Minister of State and appreciate him standing in on behalf of the Department of housing. It is somewhat disappointing a Minister was not available to take the question but I am sure the officials will relay my dismay and frustration with this grant scheme. The reality is that in the case of County Longford only a small number of inspections, possibly three, are carried out over...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Septic Tanks (13 Jun 2024)

Thomas Byrne: I thank Deputy Flaherty for his comments and will relay them to the Minister, Deputy O'Brien. Grant support is available for households where there are identified water pollution risks. However, it should be noted that, under the Water Services Act, the owner of a system is responsible for its maintenance and for keeping it in good repair. The local authorities have a key role in the...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Animal Welfare (13 Jun 2024)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: Deputy Coveney wishes to discuss matters relating to horse welfare and food safety at Shannonside Foods in Straffan, County Kildare. We were all horrified with what we saw on television screens last evening. I thank the Minister of State, Deputy Byrne, for being here to deal with this matter.
