Written Answers — Department of Justice and Equality: Magdalen Laundries (19 May 2016)

Mary Lou McDonald: ...a public inquiry into a recent press report (details supplied) that claims that a corporation in the United States of America was able to use cheap labour, in the form of women incarcerated in some Magdalen laundries and other institutions, over many years to make profits for that company that are not taxable in Ireland; if she will request the religious orders to pay into the survivors'...

Written Answers — Department of Social Protection: Domiciliary Care Allowance Eligibility (19 May 2016)

Leo Varadkar: ...Thalidomide. Any payment made by the Residential Institutions Statutory Fund Board is similarly disregarded. In addition, ex gratia payments made to women who were admitted to and worked in the Magdalen Laundries or through the Symphysiotomy Payment Scheme are also not taken into account in social welfare means assessments. All other compensation or court awards which are not provided...

Adoption (Amendment) Bill 2016: Second Stage (17 May 2016) See 1 other result from this debate

Jan O'Sullivan: ...their birth origins. It was also about how society frowned on certain issues. It was an Ireland that we are all glad to see the back of. There has been progress in many respects, including on the Magdalen laundries, residential institutions legislation and all that followed from the latter, but we have not dealt with everything yet. The children's referendum was a major and important...

Crime: Statements (5 May 2016)

Richard Boyd Barrett: ...represented in prison populations in every single country in the world. I can say anecdotally, because they come into my clinic and I know them from around my area, that people who were in industrial schools or Magdalene laundries, who had undiagnosed dyspraxia, dyslexia or other developmental problems, who had major housing issues or had abuse issues in their family are massively and...

Written Answers — Department of Justice and Equality: Magdalen Laundries (26 Apr 2016)

Maureen O'Sullivan: 222. To ask the Minister for Justice and Equality the number of women who have applied for the Magdalen ex gratia scheme; the number of women in receipt of benefits from the scheme overall; and the number of women who have applied for the scheme from the United States of America and Canada and who are in receipt of benefits. [8361/16]

Standing Order 112 Select Committee: Motion (10 Mar 2016)

Gerry Adams: ...very clear mandate to deal with the issues of, for example, the homeless who remain homeless as we sit here, the families in mortgage distress, the victims of the recent flooding who have still to get redress and others in rural Ireland who have been let down. I received a call today from a Magdalen laundries survivor who had not yet received a full pension, despite assurances from the...

Establishment of a Statutory Commission of Investigation into a Foster Home in the South East: Statements (2 Feb 2016) See 2 other results from this debate

Maureen O'Sullivan: ...;il le scannail eile a chuaigh ar aghaidh sa tír seo. There is an air of, "Can this have happened again in recent years?", after so many similar cases in the past. It is so reminiscent of our debates and discussions on the Magdalene Laundries, the mother and baby homes, and the abuse in residential institutions where young men, women and children were so disregarded and brutalised....

Public Accounts Committee: HSE Report on Foster Home in Waterford Community Care Area: Discussion (2 Feb 2016)

Mary Lou McDonald: ...of her family? I am raising this very particularly because the delegates are going to very great lengths to emphasise these were private arrangements. It is actually very reminiscent of the Magdalen laundries, this private arrangement carry-on. The initial statement looks to me kind of dishonourable in that it wishes to hang the culpability for all of this around the neck of Ann's...

Seanad: Direct Provision: Motion (27 Jan 2016)

Trevor Ó Clochartaigh: ...because of the Minister of State's partners in government, whether it is for reasons within the Department or whatever but it certainly is an issue that will not go away. I believe it will be our Magdalen laundry in the future and it is a scandal that we are not living up to the international human rights of the people in direct provision and we still have a great deal of work to do in...

Convention on the Constitution Final Reports: Statements (14 Jan 2016)

Paul Murphy: ...to the church to get away from its responsibilities and as an instrument of social control. That close connection between the church and the State was the context in which scandals such as the Magdalen laundries could take place. It is also the context in which people do not have the basic right to abortion, for example. We still have blasphemy in the Constitution. Despite the fine...

Seanad: Order of Business (14 Jan 2016)

Maurice Cummins: ...health and educational support for those who survived physical, emotional and sexual abuse in residential education institutions. We also commissioned a report to examine what had happened in the Magdalen laundries and in 2013, we put in place a compensation scheme and medical support for the women whose lives were irreparably damaged. A redress scheme was also established for survivors...

Written Answers — Department of Health: Magdalen Laundries Data (17 Dec 2015)

Pearse Doherty: 442. To ask the Minister for Health the cost of broadening the scheme for women living abroad who suffered in the Magdalen laundries, who are now entitled to free general practitioner services, prescribed drugs, surgical appliances, nursing and home help services, dental, ophthalmic and aural services, counselling, chiropody and physiotherapy, upon their return to Ireland, to include all...

Seanad: Order of Business (16 Dec 2015)

Katherine Zappone: ...Mr. Mike Allen of Focus Ireland and Mr. Fintan McNamara of the Residential Landlords Association for their expert commentary during the drafting of the Bill. I especially thank my assistant, Ms Magdalene Hayden, for her work on this. The Bill provides for three voluntary rent agreement schemes which offer better security of tenure and certainty of rent for tenants than is currently...

Coroners Bill 2015: Second Stage [Private Members] (11 Dec 2015) See 1 other result from this debate

Clare Daly: ..., it firmly puts the need for us to address the deficiencies in our maternity services centre stage. Things are too rooted in the old Ireland, the Ireland that allowed us to have women shackled in Magdalen laundries, which did not have a problem with women's pubic bones being sawn open to facilitate more deliveries of children and which did not have a problem expelling thousands of women...

Seanad: Criminal Law (Sexual Offences) Bill 2015: Committee Stage (11 Dec 2015)

David Norris: .... It is a marketing exercise and a PR stunt by people who are radical feminists and ex-nuns. Some of them should be ashamed of themselves, given that they come from the order that operated the Magdalen laundries and are still trying to control people. The amendment provides that the Minister's report would include the extent to which, in the opinion of the Minister, the section has...

Seanad: International Protection Bill 2015: Committee Stage (Resumed) and Remaining Stages (7 Dec 2015)

Trevor Ó Clochartaigh: ...still persists in prolonging its love affair with incarceration [that is the word the Minister of State used]. Apparently in the 1950s we had 250,000 people in mental institutions. Ireland also has a history of mother and baby homes, Magdalen laundries and an industrial schools system, yet again we revert to incarcerating and storing people while they wait for their asylum applications...

Seanad: Order of Business (1 Dec 2015)

David Norris: I will end on this. On the other hand, those to whom I refer are religious people from a particular background and many of them are from the order that supervised the Magdalen laundries. That ought to tell one something.

Seanad: Assisted Decision-Making (Capacity) Bill 2013: Second Stage (10 Nov 2015)

Caít Keane: ...to people, particularly minors. I ask the Minister of State to examine the matter. Part 6 of the Bill refers to the specific interests of the wards of court. I know that there are people residing in Magdalen homes who have been deemed to lack capacity who are unable to draw the funds that are due to them. They may lack capacity or are going through the process of being made a ward of...

Public Accounts Committee: Annual Report and Appropriation Accounts of the Comptroller and Auditor General 2014
Vote 21: Prisons
Vote 24: Department of Justice and Equality
Chapter 9: Development of Prison Accommodation in Dublin
