Seanad: Railway Safety (Reporting and Investigation of Serious Accidents, Accidents and Incidents Involving Certain Railways) Bill 2020: Second Stage (23 Oct 2020)

Róisín Garvey: Of course, it is very important to put safety first. In terms of light rail, heavy rail, walking, cycling and so on, everything must be safer. My own mother has stopped using trains because of the gap between the platform and the trains which frightens her. Perhaps we should look at that if it is proving prohibitive for older people because safety is key. For too long we have been...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (22 Oct 2020)

Róisín Garvey: As spokesperson for enterprise, trade and employment, I want to use my time to encourage people to really think about where they spend their money in the coming six weeks. We spend €5 billion doing online shopping. More than two thirds of this goes outside the country. If we are buying more online, we need to look at the Irish companies. As the Senator said earlier, there is a good...

Seanad: Electoral (Civil Society Freedom)(Amendment) Bill 2019: Second Stage (22 Oct 2020)

Róisín Garvey: I welcome the Minister of State to the House. It is nice to have him here and he is welcome back any time. The issue at hand is the application of the restrictions of funding to voluntary and community sectors. That is what we want to discuss and we are here late at night because we all care about it deeply. I thank Senators Ruane and Higgins for pointing it out. It is important that we...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation: Budget 2021 Support Measures for Enterprise: Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment (21 Oct 2020)

Róisín Garvey: It is good to have the witnesses present. I thank them for coming in. I have just a few short questions. Like Deputy Stanton, I would like to hear specifically about the promotion of Irish businesses in terms of whether there is a PR plan in place rather than the supports that are being given in the background. There should be something at the moment to assist Irish companies with...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation: Budget 2021 Support Measures for Enterprise: Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment (21 Oct 2020)

Róisín Garvey: I think we have some time because I was the next speaker anyway and I got Deputy Duffy's time. I do not want to put Mr. Hughes under too much pressure.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation: Budget 2021 Support Measures for Enterprise: Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment (21 Oct 2020)

Róisín Garvey: I heard about it.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation: Budget 2021 Support Measures for Enterprise: Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment (21 Oct 2020)

Róisín Garvey: I am sorry, but did Mr. Hughes say the website is supportingsmes.ie?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation: Budget 2021 Support Measures for Enterprise: Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment (21 Oct 2020)

Róisín Garvey: I thank Mr. Hughes very much.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation: Budget 2021 Support Measures for Enterprise: Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment (21 Oct 2020)

Róisín Garvey: When is message about green public procurement being issued? I know from working with small businesses that have lost out in the procurement from local authorities to cheaper, plastic versions of products, that the message has not yet been received. Having spoken to a head of a LEO, I know that they need much more support in helping the SMEs to be competitive in the procurement process,...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation: Budget 2021 Support Measures for Enterprise: Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment (21 Oct 2020)

Róisín Garvey: Did Mr. Hughes say SEAI?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation: Budget 2021 Support Measures for Enterprise: Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment (21 Oct 2020)

Róisín Garvey: We know that under the wage subsidy scheme, there are two ways for a small business to get a wage subsidy for its staff, as long as turnover is not more than 30% of what it would normally be in a year. If turnover goes above 30% at present, the business will lose the wage subsidy for its staff. Is there a second tier? What I have gathered, from looking at the supports available, is that if...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation: Budget 2021 Support Measures for Enterprise: Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment (21 Oct 2020)

Róisín Garvey: I thought maybe it was 30%, but I would like to know if there is-----

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation: Budget 2021 Support Measures for Enterprise: Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment (21 Oct 2020)

Róisín Garvey: That is great.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation: Budget 2021 Support Measures for Enterprise: Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment (21 Oct 2020)

Róisín Garvey: I wanted some clarity around the issue, because if a business goes a few euro over the turnover threshold, it could lose access to the subsidy completely. I was wondering what the cut off was. Is there any incremental way of doing it?

Seanad: Shannon Group: Motion (14 Oct 2020)

Róisín Garvey: What about Ireland West Airport Knock?

Seanad: Shannon Group: Motion (14 Oct 2020)

Róisín Garvey: I do not support the motion but I support the amendment to the motion. In some ways I find it somewhat ridiculous and I wonder if we are wasting our time on this motion. I am sure Senator Gavan, like everyone else, knows that Shannon Group is not just an airport, it is a large entity that has assets, so this motion is almost a waste of time. If he had said "Shannon Airport" rather than...

Seanad: Shannon Group: Motion (14 Oct 2020)

Róisín Garvey: We cannot be double-jobbing and be on the phone and a politician at the same time. We will get into trouble. It is great that Senator Gavan is talking to employees and union representatives. In case he is in any doubt, we have all been talking to union representatives and employees, so there is nothing really amazing about that. We have attended meetings with them individually and in...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Social Protection: Withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union (Consequential Provisions) Bill 2020: Discussion (7 Oct 2020)

Róisín Garvey: I welcome the Minister. It is great to have her here. In the short time she has been a Minister she has done amazing work. I thank her for the supports she has provided for rural Ireland. As spokesperson for rural development I look forward to working with her and the Minister of State, Deputy Joe O'Brien. I hope this Bill passes smoothly or without too much hassle.

Seanad: Aviation Industry: Statements (1 Oct 2020)

Róisín Garvey: It is great to see another strong woman from the west getting up the ranks. I congratulate the Minister of State and look forward to working with her. I have a few points on the aviation industry and road transport while we have her ear. I am sure she is just as aware as everybody else in the room of all the problems so I will not waste time describing them. Instead I will focus on some...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (30 Sep 2020)

Róisín Garvey: I wish to raise today something I feel passionate about and which has come up in many different Departments and realms. It started with us signing up to the UN Conference on Sustainable Development goals in 2015. We must now get our heads around these because they are in the Standing Orders for every departmental committee thanks to my colleague, Deputy Ó Cathasaigh, who got them. Our...
