Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Social Insurance (13 Jul 2022)

John Paul Phelan: I know, as most people do, that Revenue has no wriggle room in terms of refunds beyond four years but, on the other hand, there is always wriggle room to chase up unpaid taxes. This is understandable but it should work both ways. I realise that in the context of this Topical Issue debate, we will not be able to change the four-year rule. I will endeavour to speak with the Minister and the...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Social Insurance (13 Jul 2022)

Colm Brophy: I hear very clearly what the Deputy said about clarity around the information. I will raise this with the Minister on behalf of the Deputy, as I know he did earlier. As I outlined, there are parameters within which this takes place, in particular, the four-year time limits, which is consistent with the process in other areas. The Deputy's key point on providing clarity of information and...

Lobbying Reform

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Lobbying Reform (13 Jul 2022)

Paul Murphy: This is about Uber. I pay tribute to the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists for its excellent work in publishing the Uber leaks. It revealed a major corporation, valued at $44 billion, setting itself up as a disrupter, a modern company and so on, but in reality pursuing the old, tried and tested methods of major capitalist corporations. One, it highlighted major...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Lobbying Reform (13 Jul 2022)

Darren O'Rourke: There are two really important factors at play. The first is about lobbying and the relationship between former officials, lobbyists, Ministers, senior Government officials, advisers, and in this case, Uber and the Fine Gael Party, in addition to the privileged access lobbying affords. Revelations clearly indicate that not all of the lobbying was documented or revealed, and recording of...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Ambulance Service (13 Jul 2022)

Mairead Farrell: I do not understand how much of this answer relates to the specific questions we asked. From what the Minister of State has said, I take it that preparations for the new facilities are at an advanced stage. In the interim, deployment is occurring from the base in Clifden. As Deputy Connolly said, the reality is that this campaign group has been fighting for a long time. To be perfectly...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Ambulance Service (13 Jul 2022)

Éamon Ó Cuív: I thank the Minister of State for his reply, two small paragraphs of which related to the specific issue. I accept and always believed that planning permission would be required for this project. The Minister of State said in the answer that this would be applied for in the third quarter of this year. The third quarter is July, August and September. This is 13 July, and if the application...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Ambulance Service (13 Jul 2022)

Catherine Connolly: Gabhaim buíochas leis an Aire Stáit. Is dea-scéala é i ndáiríre. Tá sé deimhnithe anseo faoi dhó go bhfuil rudaí ag dul chun cinn, go mbeidh cead pleanála riachtanach agus go mbeidh sé á chur i bhfeidhm le linn an tréimhse trí mhí seo idir mhí Iúil agus mhí Mheán Fómhair. It is late at...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Ambulance Service (13 Jul 2022)

Frank Feighan: I thank the Deputies again for raising the issue. I assure the House the Government remains committed to ensuring the NAS delivers an enhanced service in Connemara through the establishment of the new base in Recess. I reiterate that this region is receiving additional support in the interim through the temporary crewing deployment arrangements I outlined. The strategic development of the...

Social Insurance

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Social Insurance (13 Jul 2022)

John Paul Phelan: The Minister of State, Deputy Brophy, is taking the matter in the absence of someone from the Department of Social Protection. His background of being self-employed is appropriate to answer this query. This matter stems from a constituent who is almost a neighbour of mine. He retired at the beginning of 2022. This query is also in the context of trying to encourage more people to make...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Ambulance Service (13 Jul 2022)

Jennifer Murnane O'Connor: I thank the Minister of State. It is important that there is communication with us and with ambulance paramedics. I know the great work that is being done and the number of call-outs that are being achieved, especially during the Covid crisis. Will the Minister of State come back to me with more definite timescales and outlining the framework plan? It is important that we have a specific...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Ambulance Service (13 Jul 2022)

Frank Feighan: We are almost at the end of the session and I am happy to help the Deputy. I thank her for raising the issue of the provision of an ambulance base in Carlow town and for allowing me to outline what has been done to help people experiencing delays. A significant programme of work is under way to transform the national ambulance service from an emergency medical service to a highly adaptable...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Ambulance Service (13 Jul 2022)

Frank Feighan: Work is under way on identifying and securing a feasible site. The Deputy has raised this issue several times and it is nice to have some good information for her. She is getting two for the price of one as I will also follow up on the primary care centre for Tullow as quickly as I can.

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Ambulance Service (13 Jul 2022)

Mairead Farrell: Thart ar bhliain ó shin, tháinig mé féin, an Teachta Ó Cuív agus an Teachta Connolly le chéile agus d'ardamar cheist faoi otharcharr Chonamara. Bhí rath leis an gceist sin. Ó shin, tá fhios againn go bhfuil otharcharr ann. An fhadhb atá ann faoi láthair ná nach bhfuil an base ann, rud atá fíorthábhachtach. ...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Ambulance Service (13 Jul 2022)

Éamon Ó Cuív: As Deputy Farrell said, we had nothing this time last year. Since then, we did very well in getting an extra ambulance, an additional emergency vehicle and 11 staff. A decision has been made on where the base will be located. What we are missing now is the building. The delivery of all the extra services we were promised was done in record time, between September and December last year....

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Ambulance Service (13 Jul 2022)

Catherine Connolly: Tá an dream seo ag streachailt ar an talamh le breis agus seacht mbliana. De bharr na hoibre atá á ndéanamh acu, i dteannta le Teachtaí Dála, tá dul chun cinn déanta. Progress has been made but this issue has been going on for more than seven years. The local group has kept up its campaign and kept the pressure on us. Approximately one year ago, as...
