Seanad: Statement by the Taoiseach (18 Apr 2019)

Ivana Bacik: I am hoping it will add up to seven minutes. I welcome the Taoiseach to the House on behalf of my colleagues in the Technical Group and my Labour Party colleagues. As he said, this is an auspicious date marking 70 years since we became a Republic. I am delighted that I will be sharing a platform with the Taoiseach later at the Royal Irish Academy. We might consider, as he has hinted...

Seanad: Civil Registration Bill 2019: Second Stage (18 Apr 2019)

Ivana Bacik: I welcome this long-overdue Bill on behalf of the Labour Party Senators. I welcome into the Public Gallery Paula Fagan and her colleagues from LGBT Ireland. I commend them for the work they have done to ensure that this Bill remains a political priority. It is great to see it here. It is most unfortunate and regrettable that so many couples have been waiting for four years, since the...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (17 Apr 2019)

Ivana Bacik: Like others, I express my strong opposition at the use of the guillotine by the Government today on the Judicial Appointments Commission Bill. It is very disappointing to see this procedural device being used by a Government that swore it would not do it. It committed itself to new politics. Its members in Fine Gael have not only been unsupportive of the Bill, they have also expressed...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (17 Apr 2019)

Ivana Bacik: Thank you. My proposal is straightforward. Since, as we all know, the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport is driving the Judicial Appointments Commission Bill, I propose an amendment to the Order of Business that he come into the House between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. to resume statements on transport to enable us all to make a contribution and him to respond to the Members who spoke on the...

Ivana Bacik: I welcome the Minister to the House. I welcome this important Bill of which, as I have said, the Labour group, and, indeed, my colleagues in the Dáil, are supportive. We will campaign strongly for a Yes vote. We recognise that the referendum, if passed, will significantly reduce the current legal delays, and, indeed, financial burdens placed in front of couples who are suffering the...

Seanad: Judicial Appointments Commission Bill 2017: Committee Stage (Resumed) (10 Apr 2019)

Ivana Bacik: My Labour Party colleagues and I had tabled two amendments to section 46. We withdrew amendment No. 93, which related to the issue of seeking to ensure an adequate gender balance on the Judiciary. We called a vote on amendment No. 92, which sought to insert the phrase "in the order of the Commission's preference". Not only would regard be had to the objective that membership of the...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (9 Apr 2019)

Ivana Bacik: I ask the Leader to facilitate a debate in the House after Easter on the best means of tackling sexual harassment issues, particularly sexual harassment in the workplace. I raise this because, as all Members will be aware having been emailed about it, a survey initiated by the women's caucus is being carried out to discover the extent to which harassment is an issue in the Houses of the...

Ivana Bacik: I welcome the Minister to the House. I believe that my colleague and friend, Senator Norris, called a quorum in order to ensure that there was a sufficient number of Senators present for this important Bill. I am grateful to him for doing so because it enabled me to get here in time for the start of the debate. On behalf of the Labour Party, I am delighted to welcome this important Bill...

Seanad: Judicial Appointments Commission Bill 2017: Committee Stage (Resumed) (4 Apr 2019)

Ivana Bacik: Senator McDowell's amendment is a sensible one and it addresses some of the issues in section 46. All Members would bow to Senator Norris's expertise in grammar, but even before he spoke, the grammar of section 46 had been bothering me. We have already voted on Senator McDowell's amendment No. 91h, which would have deleted the word "firstly" which, grammatically, is not used correctly in...
