Government's Priorities for the Year Ahead: Statements (Resumed) (13 Mar 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Andrew Doyle: There is a saying that Kilkenny used to be the capital of Ireland, Dublin is now and Cork will be in the future. If Deputy Buttimer has his say, that will happen sooner rather than later. I welcome the opportunity to contribute to this debate, which is taking place in week one of the fourth year of this Government's term. It is a good time to review where we have come from and look ahead...

Topical Issue Debate: Human Rights Issues (6 Mar 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Jerry Buttimer: I thank the Minister of State for his reply. There is an obligation on the Government to act and there is a similar obligation on us as parliamentarians to ask for a motion before the next meeting of the Inter-Parliamentary Union, as we cannot allow discrimination to continue with regard to sexual orientation. We accept that people have and will be killed as a consequence of this...

Topical Issues: Medical Card Reviews (27 Feb 2014)

James Reilly: ...medical cards based on very loose criteria while those desperately in need in other parts of the country could not. As stated by the Chairman of the Joint Committee on Health and Children, Deputy Buttimer, in the old days in certain parts all it took was a telephone call and a representation and a person got a medical card. That is not fair. We want equity in the system in so far as we...

Health Identifiers Bill 2013 [Seanad]: Second Stage (Resumed) (27 Feb 2014)

Jerry Buttimer: I welcome the opportunity to speak on the issue. The Bill represents a key step in the Government's reform programme and will allow us to introduce a system of unique identifiers for the individual and those who provide health care services. It will lead to an improvement in the quality of care, better access to information and more joined-up thinking. We all recognise the need to...

Organ Donation: Motion (21 Feb 2014) See 7 other results from this debate

Jerry Buttimer: I thank the Minister and everyone who took part in the debate. This is an example of how Friday sittings can be of benefit. The quality of the debate on this report, in contrast to others, was breathtaking. Donation is a gift and it offers consolation. As the Minister stated, the generosity of the Irish people knows no bounds. I thank all those who work in our hospitals and those who...

There are no plans to change it under the Bill, save for formalising the arrangement for the CEO to appear before the Committee of Public Accounts and other relevant committees.

Jerry Buttimer: I welcome the Pauline conversion of Sinn Féin to accountability and transparency in respect of the Garda Síochána and those who police the force. I hope the party will bring its interest to a new level in co-operation with all matters regarding the state of our country. Not too long ago, the party that tabled this motion refused to co-operate with the Garda Síochána...

Recent Flooding: Statements (Resumed) (19 Feb 2014) See 2 other results from this debate

Jerry Buttimer: I thought the Battle of Clontarf had resumed, given that Deputy McGrath launched the local election campaign of a candidate in the House. I wonder if that was his intention. He forget to mention the fine work of Fine Gael councillors and the Minister of State, Deputy Brian Hayes, on flood alleviation measures in the Clontarf area.

Public Health (Sunbeds) Bill 2013: Second Stage (Resumed) (13 Feb 2014)

Jerry Buttimer: I concluded my contribution yesterday by saying it is important that the risk of exposure to UV rays be reduced as well as the incidence of skin cancer. There is a clear link between sunbeds and skin cancer. In 2009 the international agency for research on cancer placed sunbeds in the highest category for cancer risk and rated sunbeds to be as carcinogenic as tobacco and plutonium. ...

Public Health (Sunbeds) Bill 2013: Second Stage (12 Feb 2014)

Jerry Buttimer: I commend the Minister for bringing this Bill before the House. Deputy Pringle and other speakers have issued a clarion call about the need for an awareness campaign surrounding this legislation and the impact that exposure to sunbeds can have. Arising from today, it is important that we send the message to parents in particular that children should not be exposed to tanning beds and that...
