Ceisteanna ar Pholasaí nó ar Reachtaíocht - Questions on Policy or Legislation (16 Jun 2022)

Jennifer Whitmore: I would argue that the measures the Government has introduced to date are not working. Indeed, the Economic and Social Research Institute, ESRI, report published today is sending a clear signal to the Government that the measures it has brought in so far are not working. The ESRI has recommended a number of targeted measures which it believes is the way out of this crisis. One is an...

Institutional Burials Bill 2022: Report and Final Stages (15 Jun 2022)

Jennifer Whitmore: I support amendment Nos. 14 in the names of Deputies Funchion and Ward. Deputy Holly Cairns and I believe that this wording represents much more proactive language designed to oblige interventions for justice. Where the Minister's Bill states the Government “may” refuse, the amendment states that the Government “shall” make every effort. We believe the latter is...

Institutional Burials Bill 2022: Report and Final Stages (15 Jun 2022)

Jennifer Whitmore: When the Minister first responded, he stated he was not in a position to accept the amendments. I took that to mean that he might consider accepting them at some point down the road, but his latest response would indicate they are not under consideration at all. The mother and baby homes commission reported that at least 9,000 children died while in the State's care. Many causes of...

While the Bill makes significant progress in providing a framework to address some of the horrific aspects of modern Irish history, it falls short of international...

Annual Transition Statement: Statements (15 Jun 2022)

Jennifer Whitmore: I welcome the opportunity to speak on the statements. I acknowledge and agree with the comments from Deputy Bruton that these transition statements are probably not the best mechanism for accountability because they refer to points so far in the past and this is such a dynamic and quickly changing policy environment we are dealing with. However, it is always welcome to be able to stand here...

Energy Security: Motion [Private Members] (15 Jun 2022)

Jennifer Whitmore: Citing the need to expand development of our oil and gas supplies is contrary to everything that has been said internationally and nationally by scientists, world leaders-----

Energy Security: Motion [Private Members] (15 Jun 2022)

Jennifer Whitmore: -----and Members of the House. Do we now have people in the House denying scientists and their capabilities? That is a very dangerous road to go down, that people in this House think they know more than all the climate scientists who have come together to say this. I was not going to use the term "climate deniers" later in my speech, but I think it is incredibly appropriate at this point....

Energy Security: Motion [Private Members] (15 Jun 2022)

Jennifer Whitmore: As the Social Democrats spokesperson for climate action and as a member of the Joint Committee on Climate Action, I am not shocked but I am disappointed to see this motion come before the Dáil advocating the phasing-in rather than the phasing-out of fossil fuels in Ireland. Ireland, like other rich countries, is addicted to oil and it is this addiction we must fix, not providing more of...

Jennifer Whitmore: I thank Sinn Féin for proposing this motion, which the Social Democrats entirely support along with any and all actions to ensure all children's educational and human rights are met. I acknowledge the work my colleague, Deputy Gannon, has put into this issue. Unfortunately, he was unable to be here today for the debate. There is undeniably a crisis regarding appropriate school places...
