Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (25 Sep 2018)

Mick Wallace: ...radical. It is not the ESB or Aer Lingus. It promises to be crony capitalism at its finest. This is the National Asset Management Agency, NAMA, mark 2, exactly what we do not need. It is soul destroying that the Government would appoint a former NAMA individual as chief executive officer. That is like getting the fox to mind the chickens. I will give an example of how crony...

Seanad: Commencement Matters (Resumed): National Drugs Strategy (25 Sep 2018)

Fintan Warfield: ...initiative in Britain? The Loop offers a confidential drug-testing service at festivals in Britain. A festival goer can provide a sample and will be informed what constitutes it. The sample is then destroyed in the context of the criminalisation that exists in Britain. Will the Department consider funding a similar initiative in the absence of decriminalisation? The British Government...

National Monuments (The Moore Street Battlefield) Bill 2018: Second Stage [Private Members] (20 Sep 2018) See 3 other results from this debate

Seán Haughey: ...to Chartered Land. Had we yielded to that pressure, planning permission would have been brought into force, there would be a huge shopping centre now in place there, and much of the terrace would have been destroyed. It was not the finest hour for city management but thankfully there were enough of us Dublin City councillors to prevent the disposal of 24 and 25 Moore Street. We are...

Central Bank (National Claims Information Database) Bill 2018: Second Stage (20 Sep 2018)

Mattie McGrath: ...the height and depth at which we can work. After yesterday's storm, people will be crucified again. People think they are covered for everything until something happens. The huge excesses and premiums are destroying business in both urban and rural Ireland, although it has a greater impact in rural Ireland because it is crippling young people who cannot get into the jobs market. We...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Foreign Affairs and Trade, and Defence: Palestinian Refugees in the Near East and Demolition of Khan al-Ahmar: Discussion (20 Sep 2018)

Paul Gavan: ...EU-Israel association agreement. Would the EAPPI agree with that? According to the EU's recently issued six-month report on Israeli demolitions, 26 EU-funded structures worth €60,900 have been destroyed or confiscated by Israel. To echo Senator Bacik's question, would the EAPPI support a demand for compensation? Such a demand should be forthcoming from the EU. I have a...

Home Building Finance Ireland Bill 2018: Instruction to Committee (19 Sep 2018)

Mick Wallace: ...thought the funding would be given to the builders. I find the Government's failure to deal properly with the housing crisis and the dysfunctional nature of how housing is supplied in this country soul-destroying at this stage. We have had a problem for a long time. It did not start under the Government. It started a long time ago, but it is continuing under the two Governments there...

Scoping Inquiry into the Cervical Check Screening Programme: Statements (19 Sep 2018) See 1 other result from this debate

Catherine Connolly: .... He wants more time to examine that issue among others. He also highlights an absence of documentation in one of the laboratories and also in Ireland following the procurement because it has been destroyed. As such, he can only reach limited conclusions. I reiterate the comments by Deputies that outsourcing is a major problem, notwithstanding that the report contains some positive...

Seanad: Order of Business (19 Sep 2018) See 1 other result from this debate

Fintan Warfield: ...to add up to 18 months to the overall development timeline. I wonder how many people and how many experts have to say that a blind over-reliance on the private market to solve the housing crisis is destroying people's lives and young people's future. I ask for a debate on housing as soon as possible in the Seanad.

Seanad: Post Office Closures: Motion (19 Sep 2018)

Pádraig MacLochlainn: ...and that it had not planned for this to happen. That is utter nonsense. As we know, the population in rural areas grew significantly throughout the short-lived period of economic boom, which was eventually destroyed by an over-reliance on developers and crazy lending policies. Fianna Fáil stood idly by while its policies, including its support for the postal services directive at...

Future of the Post Office Network: Motion (18 Sep 2018) See 2 other results from this debate

Gerry Adams: ...a vital social hub for local people, particularly older citizens. It is a vital public service and the Government has broken the social contract it made with these citizens. Local services should be enhanced not destroyed. Additional services could and should be delivered to all post offices as the 2016 Kerr report outlined, such as extended financial services, Government services and...

Written Answers — Department of Justice and Equality: Prison Service (7 Sep 2018)

Charles Flanagan: I wish to advise the Deputy that as previously stated in replies to Question No. 219 of 3 July 2018 and Question No. 229 of 12 July 2018, there is no record of files being destroyed in Portlaoise Prison in the manner referred to. As further stated in reply to Question No. 229 I would again ask that if the Deputy has any information to confirm that files were destroyed he...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Communications, Climate Action and Environment: Impact of Retirement Packages for Postmasters: Discussion (4 Sep 2018)

Martin Kenny: ...by the HSE. Most Ministers whom I deal with personally say they are doing their best but when they get together around the Cabinet table, it seems a corrupt political system is in place. It is destroying the country and the problem is particularly acute in rural areas and areas where people most need services. It is a corrupt political system which the Government inherited from Fianna...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: MetroLink Project: Discussion (18 Jul 2018)

...and cross the Luas line, unimpeded. This has created a lovely village feel to the whole area and if one was planning an urban development this is what we would want to create but we are about to destroy it. My next door neighbour is in his 80s. He had a very bad stroke last year and now walks with a walking frame but he can cross the Luas line. There are three preschools, five junior...

Topical Issue Debate: Human Rights (12 Jul 2018) See 1 other result from this debate

Seán Crowe: ...to the local communities and the Government facilitates the huge tax avoidance in which these mining companies partake. Colombian taxpayers are, therefore, actively subsidising the mines which are destroying their environment, health and livelihoods, while the perpetrators avoid tax. This is clearly an issue. The people of Ireland do not know where this coal comes from and what price...

Fossil Fuel Divestment Bill 2016: Report and Final Stages (12 Jul 2018) See 1 other result from this debate

Eugene Murphy: ...other counties have been badly hit by severe flooding. If we do not take action on climate change, the cost to the nation in human terms will continue to grow. Lives have been lost, property has been destroyed and businesses that closed due to flash floods have not reopened. As the representatives of the people, we have to be brave, take steps such as those outlined in the Bill and...

Seán Fleming: ...and Minister for Justice and Equality further to Parliamentary Question No. 219 of 3 July 2018, if approval is required from his Department or the Irish Prison Service before prison records can be destroyed in a prison by a governor or staff on the governor's behalf; if records are kept of such requests and approval in his Department; if a governor has the authority to make unilateral...

Seanad: Control of Economic Activity (Occupied Territories) Bill 2018: Second Stage (Resumed) (11 Jul 2018)

Gerard Craughwell: ...entire population. I understand the Government will fight the good fight to try to stop the Bill which I hope will be passed. Olive groves that had been in place for thousands of years have been destroyed, as have other crops, as Israel takes over properties as it sees fit. The Israeli army destroys not one but two, three or four streets in retaliation for each rocket fired into Israel....

Topical Issue Debate: Protected Disclosures (10 Jul 2018)

Marc MacSharry: ...against its own code of conduct. The wagons were circled to see what story the Department and CIT could put on it to save their faces and that of the HEA. CIT continue to dream up ways of destroying the individual who, as the other Deputies have noted, has not worked since. CIT has failed to comply with the request made by the HEA and the Department in May that it sort out any...
