Criminal Justice (Public Order) (Quadbikes and Scramblers) (Amendment) Bill 2021: Second Stage [Private Members] (23 Sep 2021)

Paul McAuliffe: I welcome the Deputies bringing this Bill forward. We were fortuitous in it being drawn from the lottery. We have been talking about this issue for some time. There is a broad understanding of this in the House, both from the Deputies who have spoken but also on the part of Deputy Lahart, who brought forward an earlier Bill which has now gone to the next Stage, and Deputies Chambers and...

Public Accounts Committee: Financial Statement 2020 and Related Matters: HSE (Resumed) (23 Sep 2021)

Paul McAuliffe: I am going to stay on the section 39 organisations. First, I will deal with pay. Decisions were made in December 2020 regarding pay restoration, with a further phase in May 2021. What level of compliance has there been on that within section 39 organisations?

Public Accounts Committee: Financial Statement 2020 and Related Matters: HSE (Resumed) (23 Sep 2021)

Paul McAuliffe: Yes.

Public Accounts Committee: Financial Statement 2020 and Related Matters: HSE (Resumed) (23 Sep 2021)

Paul McAuliffe: I use that as an example of the level of oversight and governance we have in respect of the section 39 organisations. We expect the implementation of a pay increase to happen automatically but there is non-compliance in many areas of policy, for example, procurement. What level of oversight is there of procurement and pay policy regarding section 39 organisations?

Public Accounts Committee: Financial Statement 2020 and Related Matters: HSE (Resumed) (23 Sep 2021)

Paul McAuliffe: Despite that, the service user sees them as just another outlet of the health service and would not often be aware of the underlying structure. We do not have a sufficient level of oversight and governance of some of these organisations. During Covid, we saw that we did not have a sufficient level of control, in particular over service delivery. Have we analysed whether the section 39...

Public Accounts Committee: Financial Statement 2020 and Related Matters: HSE (Resumed) (23 Sep 2021)

Paul McAuliffe: I appreciate that is Mr. Reid's view. The question is whether there has been a systemic review of the governance, compliance with procurement and benefit for service users of the section 39 model.

Public Accounts Committee: Financial Statement 2020 and Related Matters: HSE (Resumed) (23 Sep 2021)

Paul McAuliffe: Does Mr. Reid have any insight into the level of compliance as regards the targets set for service delivery, that is, what was agreed in the service level agreement, and what was delivered? What percentage of organisations meet the targets?

Public Accounts Committee: Financial Statement 2020 and Related Matters: HSE (Resumed) (23 Sep 2021)

Paul McAuliffe: I am not undermining in any way the work of many of these organisations. In fact, sometimes they struggle with the level of funding, in particular capital funding, that they need to grow their services. My question is whether the section 39 model benefits them, the service user or the State. I cannot see the benefit of a system which puts obstacles in the way of the State being able to act...

An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (21 Sep 2021)

Paul McAuliffe: I am going to put the Tánaiste in a difficult position by asking him to comment on or dismiss unconfirmed reports about a Government plan that has not yet been announced. Communities across north Dublin are concerned about reports that MetroLink may be delayed. I do not have to convince the Tánaiste of the benefits of MetroLink. It is a project that helps our climate, our city...

Public Accounts Committee: Business of Committee (21 Sep 2021)

Paul McAuliffe: This is a really serious issue. I have submitted my own parliamentary questions on the issue over the summer and will submit subsequent questions on it. My question concerns how it relates to our work on the Committee of Public Accounts. I am a new member, so I am still getting used to it. Which areas will we be focusing on? At this point, the issue does not appear to involve public...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (16 Sep 2021)

Paul McAuliffe: Earlier this week, I attended a meeting of school principals and a family resource centre about how open drug dealing is impacting the services they provide in the community. We all saw the "Prime Time" programme on open drug dealing in Ballymun. My question relates to the programme for Government. When will the citizens' assembly on drug use be brought forward and will the Tánaiste...
