Air Navigation and Transport Bill 2020: Committee Stage
(17 Jun 2021)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: I accept the Minister of State's point that including this provision in primary legislation could lead to rigidity. However, she accepted that there are stakeholders that feel left out of forums. I agree with previous speakers on the need for the Minister of State to meet us in the middle to find a solution. It is all well and good going back to the IAA but there needs to be some sort of...

Select Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Business of Select Committee
Air Navigation and Transport Bill 2020: Committee Stage
(17 Jun 2021)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: I agree with the previous commentary. We all accept there are new levels of maturity in how mental health is dealt with, including peer support programmes and, particularly, the requirement for confidentiality so people feel free to deal with the issue. If this is going to be dealt with under an EASA review, there are two things to consider. I agree with Deputy Crowe and Deputy O'Rourke,...

Common Agricultural Policy: Statements (16 Jun 2021)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: I agree with much of the commentary on the need to ensure the sustainability of the family farm. Beyond that, many people in the EU have forgotten what CAP was about, namely, the steady supply of safe food. The biggest problem we have is the reduced overall CAP budget. Its share of the overall EU budget has declined from 37% to 30%. What will this look like? Has the Department...

Common Agricultural Policy: Statements (16 Jun 2021)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: I would like to check the position regarding budgetary cuts. If I am correct, they will be at the end of the EU budgetary cycle. Have we looked into this?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Rapid Antigen Testing: Discussion (Resumed) (16 Jun 2021)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: I thank Dr. Holohan and the rest of NPHET for attending. I do not want to go back over the ground that has been covered. In summary, similar to what Deputy O'Rourke stated earlier, if we had started putting together a pilot scheme earlier, we would be in a different place where we would have the evidence to assess, particularly as regards aviation. What NPHET members are saying is the...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Education and Skills: School Bullying and the Impact on Mental Health: Discussion (Resumed) (15 Jun 2021)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: In fairness to Professor O’Higgins Norman, he dealt with the whole issue of the necessity for joined-up thinking. We need to get it right with respect to schools, communities and beyond. He addressed the specific difficulties with social media, the cyberworld and gaming platforms. Who should be involved in recording the metrics? I imagine it would be the companies but what exactly...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Education and Skills: School Bullying and the Impact on Mental Health: Discussion (Resumed) (15 Jun 2021)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: Two points arise. We need to make sure those metrics are provided, be it to a digital safety commissioner or whomever it may be, and ensure that officeholder has sufficient resources to deal with that issue.
