Joint Oireachtas Committee on European Union Affairs: Impact of the Comprehensive Trade and Economic Agreement on Irish-Canadian Trade and Relations: Discussion (13 Apr 2021)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: I should make mention of our close relationship, like everyone else has done. I am from County Louth, where we have the Thomas D'Arcy McGee Summer School in Carlingford. The last time we were lucky enough to be able to go to events, I was there and met General John de Chastelain. Obviously there are very close relationships between Ireland and Canada and I do not think that decoupling ISDS...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on European Union Affairs: Impact of the Comprehensive Trade and Economic Agreement on Irish-Canadian Trade and Relations: Discussion (13 Apr 2021)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: My argument and the question I put is that the tide is going out with regard to ISDS. The fear is that if the State wants to introduce legislation, it has the chilling effect on the basis that the State has left itself open to being sued because the corporation has the legitimate expectation of profit. While that is fine, if we want to introduce legislation for the public good, for example...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on European Union Affairs: Impact of the Comprehensive Trade and Economic Agreement on Irish-Canadian Trade and Relations: Discussion (13 Apr 2021)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: I mentioned the Energy Charter Treaty, which Canada has not been signed off on the basis of the ISDS element. People are stepping away from it for fear of corporations suing. Regarding article 8.10, enough has been said regarding fair and equitable treatment but creating a legitimate expectation. The chilling effect is what we are still talking about. That is obvious. We have...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on European Union Affairs: Impact of the Comprehensive Trade and Economic Agreement on Irish-Canadian Trade and Relations: Discussion (13 Apr 2021)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: I am not sure we have full protection as regards the chilling effect. I asked whether there is any obstacle to continuity of the provisional application. A large number of countries, particularly in the EU, are not making major inroads on ratification of the ICS.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on European Union Affairs: Impact of the Comprehensive Trade and Economic Agreement on Irish-Canadian Trade and Relations: Discussion (13 Apr 2021)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: Is anything stopping this provisional application continuing in the near future without ratification of the ICS?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on European Union Affairs: Comprehensive and Economic Trade Agreement: Discussion (Resumed) (6 Apr 2021)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: I thank the three speakers and I will move this on as fast as I can.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on European Union Affairs: Comprehensive and Economic Trade Agreement: Discussion (Resumed) (6 Apr 2021)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: Members may have missed the greatest speech ever given but I can start again. This comes down to the investor court system and the fact we do not want to leave ourselves exposed to be sued by large corporations. Dr. Ankersmit said earlier that it will not exactly be small or medium enterprises taking these sorts of action. I would like some sort of detail on corporations' success rates in...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Poultry Industry (1 Apr 2021)

Charlie McConalogue: I assure the Deputy that there is a very bright and secure future for the sector. It is a really important part of the overall agrifood sector. It is one I want to support and work with. There are challenges. Poultry farmers affected by diseases that do not automatically qualify for compensation and who must cull their flocks naturally incur massive financial costs. I had a very...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Poultry Industry (1 Apr 2021)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: Leis sin, táimid tagtha go dtí deireadh gnó na seachtaine. Tá an Dáil ar athló go dtí 10 a.m., Dé Céadaoin, 21 Aibreán 2021. Idir an dá linn, guím Cásca beannaithe ar gach duine.

Poultry Industry

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Poultry Industry (1 Apr 2021)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: The fourth and final important matter selected has been raised by Deputy Niamh Smyth, who wishes to discuss the need for co-financed funding for a scheme to support the poultry sector in counties Cavan and Monaghan. The Minister might give us a few bob around the rest of the country as well, if he can.

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Poultry Industry (1 Apr 2021)

Niamh Smyth: I thank the Minister for coming to the House at such a late hour to discuss this very important issue, which I appreciate. The Minister will be more than familiar with the Hennessy report. My question relates to its findings and recommendations on which the Government might act. The poultry industry is of particular importance in my constituency of Cavan-Monaghan, as it is in many places...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Poultry Industry (1 Apr 2021)

Charlie McConalogue: I thank Deputy Niamh Smyth for raising this issue, which is particularly important in her constituency of Cavan-Monaghan, which is the heartland of the poultry sector nationally. At the outset, I want to pay tribute to the sector. The poultry sector has an annual output of more than €610 million. It often does not get the recognition it deserves for the massive contribution it...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Poultry Industry (1 Apr 2021)

Niamh Smyth: I appreciate the Minister's comprehensive reply. I will get down to the nuts and bolts of the funding being sought, which is €2.5 million spread over two years. In terms of the overall 2021 agriculture budget, that might seem quite small. Therefore, I hope that when the Minister sits down with his officials, that kind of finance can be put into it. I am not overstating the matter...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Banking Sector (1 Apr 2021)

Seán Fleming: I thank the Deputy for raising this issue. As she is aware, the FSU has suggested the establishment of a banking forum involving all relevant stakeholders coming together to discuss the future of banking in Ireland. When the Minister for Finance met the FSU last December, he highlighted that he did not think that our Department should participate in such a forum. His concern in this...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Banking Sector (1 Apr 2021)

Neasa Hourigan: I thank the Minister of State for his reply. Not to be coy about this but I see a banking forum as a first step to talking about public banking, something for which Green Party has pushed for a long time. It would speak to issues around regional access to banking. It is something to which 21 countries in Europe have access, but we do not. We do not have that level of competition or choice...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Banking Sector (1 Apr 2021)

Seán Fleming: Again, I thank the Deputy for raising those points, particularly in the context of her party's position on this matter. I understand from the Department of the Environment, Climate and Communications that An Post is transforming its retail network by delivering new products in all formats, including loans, credit cards, more foreign exchange products, insurance products, local banking, in...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Dental Services (1 Apr 2021)

Verona Murphy: I am very disappointed that somebody at the Minister of State's level would come into this House and restate what we can read on a website. These parents want to know when their children will receive treatment. As the Minister of State knows perfectly well, waiting lists have not fallen in years, so I do not know where the expectation comes from that they will definitely come down. I have...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Dental Services (1 Apr 2021)

Frank Feighan: I am aware of the difficulties experienced by young people, especially in Wexford, as Deputy Murphy articulated, who have been waiting a long time for orthodontic treatment. As I outlined to the House, the Department and the HSE will undertake a number of initiatives to address waiting lists for orthodontic care. Work is ongoing with Sláintecare, in conjunction with the HSE and the...
