Irish Economy: Statements (23 Apr 2020)

Brian Leddin: It is our duty as parliamentarians to not only keep our citizens safe during the immediate crisis, but to ensure that we plan for the future. The Irish people have never lost faith in their future and that of Ireland. It is at our toughest times that we must hold onto and safeguard this faith in our future. As a nation we have endured hardships but we have prevailed and will do so again....

Covid-19 (Agriculture, Food and the Marine): Statements (30 Apr 2020)

Brian Leddin: I support Deputy Cahill's call for opening allotments in urban areas. These fulfil an essential function regarding food production and provide an outlet for urban dwellers to carry out physical exercise in a safe and socially distant way, while also allowing positive interaction within communities. The Covid-19 health crisis and the associated financial crisis have focused the minds of...

Covid-19 (Tourism): Statements (6 May 2020)

Brian Leddin: I am sharing time with Deputy Noonan. We now know that our tourism industry will not have a summer season this year. As a result, we urgently need to plan for the following year instead. We have a chance right now to redefine our tourism strategy and how it will work for us in the future, especially for areas outside Dublin. Ireland is divided in the country, with a few high-profile...

Covid-19 (Health): Statements (7 May 2020)

Brian Leddin: I offer my condolences to all who have been bereaved so far by the Covid-19 pandemic. I share my sympathies, as Members across the House have expressed theirs. I would like to revisit my colleague, Deputy Ossian Smyth's, and I am sure the Minister's, favourite topic, namely, the Covid tracker app. I thank the Minister for the publication of last week's document. Although it is not a...

Covid-19 (Health) - Statements (14 May 2020)

Brian Leddin: I have four questions for the Minister on behalf of the Green Party, about testing, tracing, isolation and funding for our community and voluntary sector. We all agree that being innovative and effective in each of these areas is key to our continued success in suppressing Covid-19. There has been a lot of discussion, including in this House, about testing capacity, volume and turnaround...

Covid-19 (Health): Statements (27 May 2020)

Brian Leddin: I will be sharing time with Deputy Noonan. I want to talk to the Minister about Limerick. There is concern in my city and county at the rise in trolley numbers at University Hospital Limerick, UHL. While I acknowledge the Minister's response to my constituency colleague, Deputy Quinlivan, many people locally have questions about the spare capacity in Barrington's hospital and why it is not...

Covid-19 (Communications, Climate Action and Environment): Statements (27 May 2020)

Brian Leddin: I welcome the opportunity to ask the Minister questions in the Thirty-third Dáil. I acknowledge his hard work as Minister in recent years and thank him for it. He has always shown my colleague, Deputy Eamon Ryan, respect and courtesy in the Dáil and I will endeavour to engage constructively with him and his successor in the very important work carried out by the Department of...

Covid-19 (Education and Skills): Statements (4 Jun 2020)

Brian Leddin: Is deas dom an deis seo an tAire a cheistiú don chéad uair sa Dáil seo. These are certainly testing times for the Minister and I wish him well in his responsibility to oversee the leaving certificate in 2020. Today, students should be sitting English paper 2, which would include their comparative studies, but that is not the case. I wish the State Examinations Commission,...

Climate Action and Low Carbon Development: Statements (10 Jun 2020)

Brian Leddin: I acknowledge the effort made by the Minister and the Department in recent years. Our task to reduce our emissions significantly is gargantuan and will require a significant and sustained effort from all members of society and sectors of the economy. Effort should not and does not equate to burden. Often we tend to forget this. If we were to look at the benefits of acting on climate...

Special Committee on Covid-19 Response: Covid-19: Impact on Aviation (resumed) (28 Jul 2020)

Brian Leddin: I thank Mr. Doyle and Mr. Wilson for attending. Given the dramatic decrease in passenger numbers due to Covid, it is timely that we re-evalute aviation in Ireland. I represent Limerick city, which has been significantly dependent on the vitality of Shannon Airport and we can see the trends that are emerging. It seems to me that there is likely to be a correlation between the development...

Special Committee on Covid-19 Response: Covid-19: Impact on Aviation (resumed) (28 Jul 2020)

Brian Leddin: I thank the witnesses.

Special Committee on Covid-19 Response: State Response to Recent Spike in Covid-19 Cases (Resumed) (26 Aug 2020)

Brian Leddin: I thank Dr. Glynn and Professor Nolan for their efforts to date, which the whole country appreciates. My first question is directed to Professor Nolan. We saw the significant outbreaks in food processing plants, particularly meat factories, over the summer. What other sectors, workplaces or venues is NPHET monitoring particularly closely for potential outbreaks of the virus? It seems to...

Special Committee on Covid-19 Response: State Response to Recent Spike in Covid-19 Cases (Resumed) (26 Aug 2020)

Brian Leddin: I thank Professor Nolan for that. I have three questions for Dr. Glynn, but perhaps he could also address the one about particular workplaces that might be vulnerable. I will go through the three questions and he can take them all together. There is a particular risk of outbreaks in congregated settings such as schools and meat factories. As NPHET considers the broad use of...

Special Committee on Covid-19 Response: State Response to Recent Spike in Covid-19 Cases (Resumed) (26 Aug 2020)

Brian Leddin: I have four questions which I will try to get through quickly in five minutes. A colour coded alert system is being introduced as an alternative to the previously published roadmap for reopening. Does the Department have a date for its publication? What can the public expect from the system? Will there be restrictions tied to specific colours and so on? Second, data on...

Special Committee on Covid-19 Response: Covid-19: Review of the Reopening of Schools (2 Sep 2020)

Brian Leddin: I thank our guests, the organisations and their members for grappling with what must have been very difficult circumstances in recent months. We in the Oireachtas owe them a debt of gratitude, as do the Irish public. I would like to hear the witnesses' positions on the issue of leave provisions and whether Covid-19 quarantine periods will be counted against sick leave entitlements in...

Special Committee on Covid-19 Response: Covid-19: Review of the Reopening of Schools (2 Sep 2020)

Brian Leddin: Does Mr. Gillespie have a comment on leave and the impact on future sick leave entitlements in the coming years?

Back to School, Further and Higher Education and Special Education: Statements (3 Sep 2020)

Brian Leddin: As Deputy Costello is unable to attend, I will use his time to raise matters I discussed with him a short while ago. I also take this opportunity to congratulate the Minister, whom I have not had the chance to address in the House yet. I wish her well in her new role as Minister for Education and Skills. When schools closed and the country went into lockdown, many schools kept working...
