Citizens' Assembly on Gender Equality: Statements (20 Oct 2021)

Verona Murphy: I hope I will not need it all. I have had a good look at and put plenty of thought into the key recommendations. First and foremost, I want to thank those who took part in the assembly. Before I move on to the specifics, based on the engagement I have had at constituent level, I want to highlight the fact a citizens’ assembly is not necessarily representative of the population as a...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (20 Oct 2021)

Verona Murphy: In 2018, the people of Wexford raised over €250,000, in consultation with and at the request of the HSE, to provide an MRI scanner for Wexford General Hospital. At the moment we have a service-level agreement with a private provider but unfortunately, we have not yet received our MRI scanner. A charity is now paying interest on the €250,000 that was raised while it sits in the...

Autism Spectrum Disorder Bill 2017 [Seanad]: Second Stage [Private Members] (20 Oct 2021)

Verona Murphy: The purpose of the Bill is to provide a consistency in the type and availability of autism services that exist across the country. Although the Bill was first introduced in 2017, many of the problems that it sought to address still remain issues today. This highlights the need for legislative intervention. For those familiar with autism, they will know that it contains many different...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: School Accommodation (20 Oct 2021)

Verona Murphy: I thank the Minister for her positive response. The engagement between the Minister and me has always been positive and I am pleased with her response. I again extend the invitation to the Minister to visit New Ross so the principal of the school, Mr. Pat Rossiter, can have the opportunity to show her around. I was there for the delivery in 2019 of the grant of funding for the new build....

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: School Accommodation (20 Oct 2021)

Verona Murphy: A matter has arisen this morning in regard to the Christian Brothers Primary School in Wexford, which had a publicised closure to students this week because of a Covid outbreak. I emphasise the closure was for students because they were asked not to come to school, although all teachers and staff attended at school in order to provide online learning. This has generated poor publicity. The...

Rental Sector: Motion [Private Members] (19 Oct 2021)

Verona Murphy: Five minutes each. I thank Sinn Féin for bringing the motion which again allows an opportunity to discuss some of the issues of housing and renters. At the outset, I want to acknowledge that there are some rogue landlords - some rogue landlords - who will do everything possible to get as much money from their property and who will use sometimes illegal and immoral methods to do so. I...

(14 Oct 2021)

Verona Murphy: Good morning everybody. Thank you for attending. My first question is somewhat related to landfill. Mr. Nugent has corresponded with me previously in relation to legislation forthcoming for closed circuit television, CCTV, and general data protection regulation, GDPR, issues to be resolved, providing evidence for illegal dumping. Has there been any development on that? There is a massive...
