Employment Permits (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill 2021: Second Stage [Private Members] (25 Nov 2021)

Richard Boyd Barrett: Sorry. I did not say that. Supermarkets. I did not mention their name. Sorry, it was a slip of the tongue.

Employment Permits (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill 2021: Second Stage [Private Members] (25 Nov 2021)

Bernard Durkan: And meat processors.

Employment Permits (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill 2021: Second Stage [Private Members] (25 Nov 2021)

Richard Boyd Barrett: Yes. The workers are on very low pay. Considering that the food we eat is one of the most basic things we need to sustain our society, it says something that pretty much everyone along the food chain, whether they are Irish, small farmers, migrant workers or the people who work in the shops, is pretty poorly paid. This Bill is part of trying to address that. If we are serious about some...

Question put.

Employment Permits (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill 2021: Second Stage [Private Members] (25 Nov 2021)

Damien English: I recognise both speakers. It is not that I have anything against what is in the Bill. In most cases the provisions are in legislation already. The Deputy is saying he is disappointed I am not supporting his Bill. He might recognise that there is existing legislation in place to cover most of what he has asked. On the one area where this is not the case, I have explained why we cannot...

Employment Permits (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill 2021: Second Stage [Private Members] (25 Nov 2021)

Richard Boyd Barrett: I should have said in my initial comments that on the occasion of a Bill like this coming through it is worth considering the horrific events that took place in the English Channel this week with desperate migrants losing their lives in a boat that capsized. The seas around Europe have become a graveyard for thousands and thousands of desperate people - men, women and children - who are...

Employment Permits (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill 2021: Second Stage [Private Members] (25 Nov 2021)

Gino Kenny: I probably will not need all my time. These are slightly surreal circumstances. Normally, I would not moralise about attendance at debates, but this is pretty pathetic. It is a poor attendance from other Teachtaí, and that is a pity because this is an important subject. I thank the Office of Parliamentary Legal Advisers, OPLA, and those in our party for their fantastic work on...

Employment Permits (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill 2021: Second Stage [Private Members] (25 Nov 2021)

Damien English: I thank both Deputies for bringing forward this Private Members' Bill. I welcome the opportunity to speak on it today. It is a shame there are not more people here to have a very focused conversation on the Bill. While I might not agree with all that is in it, conversation on this topic is essential to clarify what is in existing law, how we intend to strengthen it and how those changes...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Hospital Services (25 Nov 2021)

Brian Stanley: I thank the Minister of State for her response. I wish to clarify this. Having spoken to staff and families, they are clear that at this point, unless the situation has changed in the last day or two, a dietician is required for the adult services to operate fully. A senior dietician is needed to provide instant pump services. That is the issue I want clarified. The HSE can often explain...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Hospital Services (25 Nov 2021)

Anne Rabbitte: Let us be clear on the response. Portlaoise Hospital has employed an advanced nurse practitioner in diabetes to support the diabetes service and has recently approved an additional 0.5 whole-time equivalent to meet the needs in the dietetic service. In reference to the dietetic service, a 0.5 of a whole-time equivalent has been approved and that was shared in my initial response. I will...

Employment Permits (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill 2021: Second Stage [Private Members] (25 Nov 2021)

Employment Permits (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill 2021: Second Stage [Private Members] (25 Nov 2021)

Richard Boyd Barrett: I move: "That the Bill be now read a Second Time." This Bill is about trying to learn one of the lessons of the Covid-19 pandemic and protecting a particularly vulnerable group of workers whose plight was highlighted in the midst of the pandemic. It was revealed as one of the central stories and scandals of the pandemic. That was the plight of migrant workers working in meat processing,...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Primary Care Centres (25 Nov 2021)

Anne Rabbitte: I can assure the Deputy that the Minister, Deputy Donnelly, and I are absolutely committed to delivering the investment and reforms required to improve our health service. This very much includes the continuing development of primary care centres right across the country. Significant progress has been made and there are now 146 operational centres throughout the country, up from 70 at the...

Hospital Services

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Hospital Services (25 Nov 2021)

Brian Stanley: I wish to raise a very important matter relating to the diabetes clinic at Portlaoise hospital, which services a very large area not just in County Laois but also Offaly, north Tipperary and south Kildare. Currently it is blocked from providing full services and it cannot provide insulin pump services because there is no adult dietician in place for the adult clinic, which is required for it...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Hospital Services (25 Nov 2021)

Anne Rabbitte: Again, I am taking this matter on behalf of the Minister, Deputy Donnelly. Diabetes is a complex condition that can have a profound impact on the quality of life of people living with the condition. If not well managed, it can lead to debilitating complications. The increasing prevalence of diabetes poses a major challenge to our health service, with increasing costs driven primarily by...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Defective Building Materials (25 Nov 2021)

Malcolm Noonan: The Deputy has summed it up eloquently and I thank him for his acknowledgement of the work the Minister and his officials. I assure him that they have worked tirelessly to try to find an equitable solution through the defective blocks grant scheme, which was benchmarked against the previous scheme regarding allowable costs in qualifying works and homeowner contributions. It takes on board...
