Joint Committee On Health: General Scheme of the Mental Health (Amendment) Bill 2021: Mental Health Commission (16 Nov 2021)

Neasa Hourigan: That makes sense. There is sometimes confluence between the responsibilities of different organisations. We are also talking about the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and there is an interrelationship there. I do not know who is best placed to answer my next question. Could somebody unpack for me the issue around intermediate admission, renewal orders and...

Joint Committee On Health: General Scheme of the Mental Health (Amendment) Bill 2021: Mental Health Commission (16 Nov 2021)

Neasa Hourigan: That is a rather significant point we all need to get to the bottom of before the end of this process. If time permits, I wish to revisit a specific issue with Dr. Finnerty, which I forgot. I said I would return to the issue of approved centres. I note from the commission's opening statement there was discussion around regulation, registration, inspection and monitoring enforcement. There...

Joint Committee On Health: General Scheme of the Mental Health (Amendment) Bill 2021: Mental Health Commission (16 Nov 2021)

Neasa Hourigan: Does the commission provide guidance or information, where a premises is not fit for purpose, on care pathways to provide the least disruptive situation for those resident in the approved centres? I presume the point of moving somebody from a less than perfect situation is not to move them from, say, an inadequate single room to a ward in what, effectively, is an institution. Is that...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Sports Funding (11 Nov 2021)

Neasa Hourigan: I thank the Minister of State. His commitment to grant equality is very welcome. The grants are important to the individual players involved. It is important that they be equal. With regard to inter-county players, the grants probably have a larger impact in that they result in players becoming role models for young women in sport. We are aware that kids start out with an interest in...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Sports Funding (11 Nov 2021)

Neasa Hourigan: I am aware that time is limited so, considering that I have been talking about Na Fianna, I hope the Minister, Deputy Catherine Martin, will join me in wishing Kilmacud Crokes, which is in her constituency, and Na Fianna all the best in the Dublin hurling final on Saturday. It is Na Fianna's first time in the final. There is a lot of excitement in our community and we fully intend to beat...
