Ceisteanna ar Pholasaí nó ar Reachtaíocht - Questions on Policy or Legislation (23 May 2024)

Verona Murphy: Last night, I attended the public consultation on the designated marine area plans, DMAP, for the proposed four sites for the offshore renewable energy wind farms off the south coast. This matter relates to the south-east region encompassing Wexford, Waterford and Cork. The fishermen there were the only real stakeholders who attended. The reality is that this was a public consultation...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (23 May 2024)

Verona Murphy: In recent years there has been a significant rise in cocaine consumption, with current reports from gardaí and drugs councillors stating that drugs are available in every rural village and town in Ireland. The cliché of cocaine as the drug of choice for the wealthy, young elite is long out of date. It has evolved in recent years and is now being used regularly by all classes...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (23 May 2024)

Verona Murphy: The reality is that prevention is always better than cure. In August 2023 it was announced that we would remove the drug squads and community policing. That was very serious. It is a pity the Minister did not make the statement he made a minute ago back then. We do not have a reinstated community policing unit in Wexford. However, I can read out millions of euro worth of drug seizures in...

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Work Permits (23 May 2024)

Verona Murphy: I know the Minister of State recently had a meeting with the Irish Road Haulage Association on the new pay scales that were introduced last year for the work permits and the general work permit. As an island nation, we must understand that there are certain sectors that require a different train of thought to keep us competitive, if nothing else. We have a HGV sector that primarily deals...

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Work Permits (23 May 2024)

Verona Murphy: I probably should have said at the outset that I wish the Minister of State well in her position. I understand those answers were prepared for her but what I really need an answer on is the competitive nature by which the work permit is structured. It is not competitive. It is anything but that. It is anti-competitive. We need to address this in the context of the particular sector we...

(23 May 2024)

Verona Murphy: I wish everybody a good morning. Ms McCrum is welcome. I do not believe I have had the opportunity to speak to her here before. I want to start with the Dunning report of 2014. It seems that Mc McCrum is at odds, according to what the newspapers reported, with what the Comptroller and Auditor General has to say about group governance. Can she tell us when she established the working group?
