Child and Youth Mental Health: Statements (29 Feb 2024)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: It goes without saying that we are disappointed by what happened to Deputy Ward's legislation on the regulation of CAMHS. The Minister of State has heard many Deputies, and will hear many more, refer to the necessity of such regulation. We were not shocked, but I am not sure we are willing to accept the Bill being kicked down the road. That is done to many Bills, but we all accept that...

Ruairi Ó Murchú: We all understand the importance of the issue we are dealing with as regards patents. I am fairly sure I will mispronounce that word a number of times before the end, so I apologise in advance. The fact is that this is quite complex for many people. It is going to be incredibly technical. We all know the issues that have existed with referendums for a long time and from time to time,...

Ceisteanna Eile (Atógáil) - Other Questions (Resumed): General Practitioner Services (29 Feb 2024)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: I welcome the news in relation to the training of GPs but we need to accept that the GP system has changed somewhat. GP practices were generally private. When we were children growing up, GPs were probably available to people 24-7. They ran their own business, did their own administration and knew everything that was wrong with people and all their family members and everyone else. We are...

Protection of Employees (Trade Union Subscriptions) Bill 2024: Second Stage [Private Members] (28 Feb 2024)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: I thank Deputy Joan Collins for introducing this sensible legislation. Deputy Ó Laoghaire put it perfectly in explaining how easy it was for him to pay his union subscriptions. We have all read the history books and we all know the story of what happened in 1913. We know how bad things would be if we did not have the power of unions and collective bargaining. We are talking about...

Protection of Employees (Trade Union Subscriptions) Bill 2024: Second Stage [Private Members] (28 Feb 2024)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: I would like to think the Minister of State would look at this issue and address how we will deal with it.

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Adult Education Provision (27 Feb 2024)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: I welcome the fact the Minister is talking about dealing with some of the inadequacies that exist in the SUSI Act. I wonder how the parameters of some of the supports will work for these students, which is something we have to look at. We are talking about fairness across the board and ensuring as many people as possible can engage with regard to disabilities. When I spoke to those...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Adult Education Provision (27 Feb 2024)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: There is a piece that needs to be done even beyond the Minister's Department in the sense of engaging with those in the Department of Social Protection with regard to working towards having people with disabilities engage with business and industry, which is a necessity. The Minister would be shocked if I did not bring up the case we have been dealing with for a long time and that he...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Adult Education Provision (27 Feb 2024)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: 13. To ask the Minister for Education and Skills if there are plans to include courses for adults with intellectual disabilities such as the level 3 certificate in skills for independent living at Dundalk IT under the SUSI grant scheme; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [8724/24]

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Adult Education Provision (27 Feb 2024)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: Are there any plans to include in the SUSI grant scheme courses for adults with intellectual disabilities, such as the level 3 certificate in skills for independent living which I was lucky enough to visit in Dundalk Institute of Technology recently? Obviously that is one of the courses included in the new funding streams for educational disability, which is very welcome. It is a very...

Ruairi Ó Murchú: I thank the Minister and her officials for coming before the committee. I hope I will not repeat a huge amount, and we have obviously been through a fair amount already. Can I get some clarity about the times we are talking about on Thursday? Who exactly did Siún Ní Raghallaigh contact? Can the Minister give an outline of what happened throughout the day until “Prime...
