National Maternity Services: Motion [Private Members] (17 May 2022)

Mairead Farrell: Twelve years ago, the Office of the Comptroller and Auditor General identified some of the key risks posed by this deal. A chapter of its report was called “Protecting the State's property interest” and identified several alarming details These included the existence of "a fixed charge over the entire St Vincent's Hospital site" and "a floating charge over all of the...

National Maternity Services: Motion [Private Members] (17 May 2022)

Dessie Ellis: The journey so far on the provision of a national maternity hospital that has got to this point has been long and convoluted. It has become unnecessarily mired in controversy. The existing maternity hospital in Holles Street is not fit for purpose. The decision to relocate to a new site eight years ago that could offer patients improved modern facilities, as well as better care, was not...

National Maternity Services: Motion [Private Members] (17 May 2022)

Réada Cronin: What a desperate disappointment this cynical Government is for the women of this State and what a desperate disappointment it is for anyone who is interested in public healthcare. The ownership of this land for our new national maternity hospital was there within our grasp but this disappointing and cynical Government did not fight for it. Now we hear the chair of the St. Vincent's...

National Maternity Services: Motion [Private Members] (17 May 2022)

Pauline Tully: I am very disappointed the Cabinet agreed earlier today to sign off on the national maternity hospital going ahead on non-publicly owned land. The question as to why the land could not be gifted to the State has never been answered. We have been told the 299-year lease at nominal rent is ownership in everything but name but why can it not just be signed off and given at a nominal fee in...

National Maternity Services: Motion [Private Members] (17 May 2022)

Stephen Donnelly: I apologise to colleagues as unfortunately, I must leave straight after this speech but the Minister of State, Deputy Butler, will be here. It has been agreed by all sides that we urgently need a new, state-of-the-art, secular, public, co-located national maternity hospital that provides all healthcare services to women and infants. This morning, that is exactly what the Government...

National Maternity Services: Motion [Private Members] (17 May 2022)

Pádraig O'Sullivan: The Deputy’s time is up.

National Maternity Services: Motion [Private Members] (17 May 2022)

David Cullinane: If the Government is not going to oppose it then it should vote against it. If it is going to support it, then it should implement it. It seems to me that is not what the Government is going to do.

National Maternity Services: Motion [Private Members] (17 May 2022)

Louise O'Reilly: The Minister of State, Deputy Butler, is here. I invite her to correct the record on what is and what is not a Nightingale ward. I hope she has brought herself up to speed on that basic piece of information since our last debate. The Minister knows what the concerns are. He has heard them. I will quote from a tweet. Maybe given the circumstances and the trouble on Twitter I should not...

National Maternity Services: Motion [Private Members] (17 May 2022)

Patricia Ryan: Over the last week there has been a lot of whitewashing. Ministers and backbenchers who previously had their doubts had those doubts swept away by a letter that contained no guarantee that the full range of health options for women would ever be safeguarded. Maybe written on that page was a coded message not to rock the boat, to turn a blind eye to women's rights and to keep their noses...

National Maternity Services: Motion [Private Members] (17 May 2022)

Denise Mitchell: I fully support the calls for a new national maternity hospital to be publicly owned and to be built on public lands. Unfortunately, the Government is ploughing ahead. For decades, the women of Ireland have campaigned for healthcare that is free from outside influences. They need to have confidence in the type of healthcare that they get. Their concerns could have been addressed....

National Maternity Services: Motion [Private Members] (17 May 2022)

Sorca Clarke: After decades of women campaigning, fighting and, in some instances, begging for healthcare, we are standing here today with a Government that has signed off on a deal that fails to deliver a public hospital on public land. Instead, it has signed us up to a convoluted lease that will run for 300 years. It is obvious to the most uneducated person in economics out there that the investment of...

Garda Síochána (Compensation) Bill 2021 [Seanad]: Second Stage (17 May 2022)

Martin Browne: I appreciate that the purpose of this Bill is to reduce waiting times and the costs that are associated with claims for malicious injuries to a member of An Garda Síochána in the course of their work. It must be noted that current backlogs in the High Court have resulted in some cases taking as long as four years to progress from the initial phase to its conclusion. When legal...

Garda Síochána (Compensation) Bill 2021 [Seanad]: Second Stage (17 May 2022)

Pádraig O'Sullivan: As the time for the debate has now elapsed, we will adjourn it.

Garda Síochána (Compensation) Bill 2021 [Seanad]: Second Stage (17 May 2022)

Debate adjourned.

National Maternity Services: Motion [Private Members] (17 May 2022)

National Maternity Services: Motion [Private Members] (17 May 2022)

David Cullinane: I move: That Dáil Éireann: notes that: - in its report entitled "Report of the unannounced monitoring assessment at the National Maternity Hospital, Holles Street, Dublin", the Health Information and Quality Authority (HIQA) noted that "the infrastructure of the hospital, despite numerous and ongoing renovations and refurbishments, was not in line with recommended guidelines for...

National Maternity Services: Motion [Private Members] (17 May 2022)

Pádraig O'Sullivan: Is that agreed? Agreed.

National Maternity Services: Motion [Private Members] (17 May 2022)

David Cullinane: I will first outline what I want to see arising from this motion, which I understand will not be opposed by the Government. I will get to that in a few moments. I want to see a resourcing of the national maternity strategy. I want to see modern, fit-for-purpose maternity hospitals with modern, fit-for-purpose maternity suites for women right across this State. I want to see it for all...

National Maternity Services: Motion [Private Members] (17 May 2022)

Stephen Donnelly: They did not. They said the State does.

National Maternity Services: Motion [Private Members] (17 May 2022)

David Cullinane: They said they do. They said the landowner, the landlord. The Minister can go back and check the record. I was in the room. The Minister was not. They said the landlord is St. Vincent's Healthcare Group.
