Cathal Crowe: I confirm I am in Leinster House. I thank the Chair for allowing me to participate in this afternoon’s meeting. I have followed the debate all along. I thank the witnesses for their participation. This is a matter close to my own heart. I have a few issues I want to put to the witnesses. The Covid crisis has served as a wake-up call to many families particularly in parts of...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Disability Matters: Housing Policy and the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities: Minister of State at the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage (30 Mar 2021)

Cathal Crowe: I am happy to do that. I want to raise the point about the location of housing for people mainly with intellectual disabilities. There seems to be a trend around large houses at the edge of a village or a town, which are typically former bed and breakfasts that have ceased trading. One sees this regularly in county towns. There is an eight or ten-bedroom unit at the edge of a town or...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Operation of the Medical Card Scheme: Discussion (30 Mar 2021)

Cathal Crowe: I get that and I know Mr. Ryan cannot have knowledge of all the cases that are being thrown his way today. As a Deputy, I am aware of a significant number of people behind the scenes who are crisscrossing by phoning GPs asking whether they can take them in because they cannot get to their local GP. We appreciate there is significant strain but as the administrative body for the GMS, I want...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Operation of the Medical Card Scheme: Discussion (30 Mar 2021)

Cathal Crowe: I submitted a parliamentary question. It is of key importance to people in the mid west that some clarity is brought to bear on this because it is quite a hefty fee to face after a hospital stay in St. Camillus's hospital, which has been there for over two centuries. It took a lot of us by surprise to hear that a charge has been set for people when they are discharged. I know that...

Cathal Crowe: I thank Mr. Flanagan for that. If there is a random selection element, which Mr. Flanagan more or less explained-----

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Operation of the Medical Card Scheme: Discussion (30 Mar 2021)

Cathal Crowe: That needs to be explained very clearly. It might be in the review correspondence people receive but it needs to be explained a bit better. In normal times when politicians are holding clinics, people appear saying that they have received a letter from the HSE telling them that their medical card is under review, telling us that their situation had not changed income or health-wise and...

(30 Mar 2021)

Cathal Crowe: I thank the Minister of State for being with us here today virtually. We appreciate her attendance.

Vote 29 - Environment, Climate and Communications (Revised)
Vote 31 - Transport (Revised)
(30 Mar 2021)

Cathal Crowe: That is positive. It must be backed with funding and I am sure this will be forthcoming from Government. Another key issue is route development and retention. I know that across Europe, there was an easing of the rules that typically applied to the holding of landing slots at hub airports but from midsummer onwards, we need funds to attract new routes and retain existing ones. It is...

Vote 29 - Environment, Climate and Communications (Revised)
Vote 31 - Transport (Revised)
(30 Mar 2021)

Cathal Crowe: Time is of the essence. Everything the Minister of State said is very positive but it needs to happen at pace. A lead-in period is always needed for aviation to recover and airlines to schedule flights for their coming season. I have one final question on post offices. I know a review is under way. It concerns me that the review may not perfectly align with the June deadline for those...
