Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (16 Dec 2021)

Leo Varadkar: I thank the Deputy for the work she has done on this matter. I share the objectives of the Private Members' Bill, namely, the Irish Corporate Governance (Gender Balance) Bill 2021, which is designed to increase the participation of women at the highest levels in the corporate world. I look forward to meeting with the Deputy on the Bill and having it debated in this House in due course. ...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (16 Dec 2021)

Jennifer Carroll MacNeill: I thank everybody and wish them a happy Christmas and a restful break. It was good to get an update earlier on the vaccines. Indeed, pharmacies in my constituency have outlined the additional support from relationship managers that they have received. I wish to ask the Minister of State, Deputy Rabbitte, about preparation for the Omicron wave with regard to therapy staff and the...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (16 Dec 2021)

Peadar Tóibín: Guím beannachtaí na Nollag ar gach uile dhuine anseo. The British Supreme Court ruled this week that the PSNI was wrong not to investigate allegations of torture against the hooded men 50 years ago. These men were selected for torture during internment in the North in 1971. Separately, the survivors of the Miami Showband murders are to receive at least £1.5 million in...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (16 Dec 2021)

Rose Conway-Walsh: I do not have time to wish everybody a happy Christmas in 30 seconds but I do anyway. It is unfortunate that in the last session of the Dáil, I must raise the issue of households in County Mayo not having drinking water. I refer in particular to the people of Cleragh and Lisduff just outside Kiltimagh, who have fought for the last ten years for clean water. All they want is to be...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (16 Dec 2021)

Brendan Griffin: As Fine Gael Whip, I wish everyone a very happy Christmas. I hope everyone gets time with their families and loved ones over the Christmas period. I also thank the Ceann Comhairle for being a very fair referee in here. He does not have goal-line technology but he always gets the calls right - most of the time anyway. I thank him and all the staff in the Houses who do a fantastic job....

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (16 Dec 2021)

Brendan Griffin: Questions on Promised Legislation have kind of become like "Angela Scanlon's Ask Me Anything" over the last while but this question is on the payment of wages (amendment) (tips and gratuities) Bill. Further to the changes he is bringing about in government, what are the Tánaiste's plans in 2022 in that regard to protect front-line workers in the hospitality sector?

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (16 Dec 2021)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: Starting with Deputy Carroll MacNeill's question, I believe the Minister of State, Deputy Rabbitte, has the answer.

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (16 Dec 2021)

Anne Rabbitte: I thank the Ceann Comhairle very much. Today at 2 o'clock, I am meeting with all the heads of the HSE from right around the country to first and foremost understand their plan with regard to how they are addressing the virus, but most importantly also to note that the therapist staff, who are part of my 91 network disability teams, are to remain within the teams and therapy is to be...

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: Good. The Tánaiste might respond to the other questions.

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (16 Dec 2021)

Leo Varadkar: With regard to Deputy Tóibín's question, I understand that the Minister, Deputy Coveney, referenced that matter. I will let him know it was raised again in the Dáil, however. I will talk to the Minister, Deputy Darragh O'Brien, and let him know about the issue regarding Kiltimagh to see if he can intervene with Irish Water in that regard. The payment of wages (amendment) (tips...

Sitting suspended at 1.07 p.m. and resumed at 1.38 p.m.

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (16 Dec 2021)

Colm Burke: I send good wishes for Christmas and the new year to the Ceann Comhairle, all of the staff and everyone here. I raise a matter relating to non-EEA doctors who are working in Ireland. Under the current rules, a non-EEA doctor cannot get a stamp 4 residency permit unless he or she has been working here for more than five years. The Tánaiste talked earlier in the week about changing the...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (16 Dec 2021)

Leo Varadkar: I thank the Deputy for raising the issue. Non-EEA, non-European doctors make an enormous contribution to the Irish heath service. They have been doing service jobs in hospitals throughout the country for decades. They have also done a phenomenal job during the pandemic. Non-European doctors are not always treated very well in our system. It is hard for them to get consultant posts or to...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (16 Dec 2021)

Pauline Tully: I wish the Ceann Comhairle and all the members of staff a very happy Christmas. What is the Government currently doing to replace the mobility allowance and the motorised transport grant, which were discontinued for new applicants in 2013? An indication was given at that time that an alternative scheme would be put in place. We are now almost nine years on and that has not happened. It is...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (16 Dec 2021)

Anne Rabbitte: I thank the Deputy for asking those questions. On her first point, the Minister for Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth, Deputy O'Gorman, and I are currently putting together proposals that we hope to bring forward in the new year. On the primary medical certificate, I have awarded €8 million this year for respite houses and centres so they can upgrade their...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (16 Dec 2021)

Neale Richmond: I raise a difficult case on which I have been working all week. It relates to a constituent who simply has not been able to access particular services for an eating disorder. I give thanks for the efforts of the office of the Minister of State, Deputy Butler, and even more welcome has been the wider funding. The issue is being resolved. However, this is a clear case of an individual and a...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (16 Dec 2021)

Mary Butler: I thank the Deputy for raising the issue. We come across issues all the time when somebody ages out at 18 and transfers from child and adolescent mental health services, CAMHS, to general adult mental health supports. We know the services for eating disorders are not as robust for adults as they are for under-18s. We have seen a spike in eating disorders in the past two years, especially...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (16 Dec 2021)

Paul McAuliffe: This morning, the Economic and Social Research Institute, ESRI, indicated that inflation may cap out at 6%. That is an alarming and stark figure, because while many of us can stand up in here and talk about any manner of public policy, inflation will impact on our competitiveness, public pay policy, the pay policy of private companies and our ability to spend the significant amounts that...
