Patricia Ryan: Thank you. I am not sure if the Minister had a chance to view our committee footage from yesterday, but Sebastian Barnes of the Irish Fiscal Advisory Council expressed his concern about the lack of an economic assessment of Housing for All, the Government solution to our housing crisis.

Will the Minister consider a requirement or incentive for businesses...

Garda Siochana (Functions and Operational Areas) Bill 2021: Second Stage (22 Sep 2021)

Patricia Ryan: I welcome the opportunity to speak on this Bill. It is very much a technical Bill, which is necessary to implement a new Garda operational model. The Bill will replace Garda districts with divisions in any relevant legislation and will also change the rank at which some functions or duties can be carried out. One criticism I have of this Bill is the short time that we have been given to...

Earlier this year, we saw the US Food and Drug Administration give approval for Aduhelm, which has shown promise, particularly in the treatment of early onset dementia.

Committee on Budgetary Oversight: Pre-Budget 2022 Scrutiny: Irish Fiscal Advisory Council (22 Sep 2021)

Patricia Ryan: I welcome the witnesses and thank them for their time and input. I have a question for Ms Holland. Last year, I read with interest her paper on the economic implications of climate change mitigation policies. I am concerned about spending money on carbon credits.

Criminal Justice (Mutual Recognition of Custodial Sentences) Bill 2021: Second Stage (16 Sep 2021)

Patricia Ryan: I welcome the opportunity to contribute on the Bill, which seeks to implement the European Council decision on the arrangements for the transfer of prisoners between EU states. Some people might feel that the transfer of prisoners to their home countries should not be a priority. However, repatriation may assist in their rehabilitation, which can only benefit society. It can also help...

An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (15 Sep 2021)

Patricia Ryan: Yes. I was not sure whether I could contribute on an issue already raised. Deputy Tóibín has spoken already about the Defence Forces. I wonder why the Government is establishing an independent review into the abuse allegations - the terms of reference and nominations are being finalised this week - when there has been no engagement with those involved in the "Women of Honour"...
