Ceisteanna - Questions: Departmental Bodies (17 May 2022)

Ceisteanna - Questions: Departmental Bodies (17 May 2022)

Micheál Martin: There comes a time when we must have some balance also in what we are doing on overall policy and frameworks, to be fair all around. I do not have the full details on Deputy Barry's question on the inquest. I will come back to the Deputy on the issue he has raised. Deputy McAuliffe asked about policing. We are working on this committee. We did not get to deal with it yesterday but at the...

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

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

Helen McEntee: I move: "That the Bill be now read a Second Time." I am delighted to introduce the Garda Síochána (Compensation) Bill 2021 to the House following its passage through Seanad Éireann last week, and I look forward to hearing the contributions from Deputies today. Before I discuss the Bill, I would like to mention an issue that was raised on the Second Stage debate in the Seanad...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Departmental Bodies (17 May 2022)

Richard Boyd Barrett: I want to raise an issue that I am surprised did not get more attention and about which more concern was not expressed, namely the recent departure of Ms Anne O'Connor, the chief operations officer from the HSE to take up a post with a private health insurance company, VHI. There has been a lot of talk about the need to have some sort of cooling off period between going from very senior...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Departmental Bodies (17 May 2022)

Paul Murphy: Thousands of workers in our bars and restaurants are being told to leave the country by the end of the month as the Department of Justice is refusing to give a simple extension until September for those on stamp 2 visas. This means thousands of people will have to leave their accommodation and jobs for the summer. When they return next September they will have to try to find new apartments...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Departmental Bodies (17 May 2022)

Mick Barry: I want to raise again the case of George Nkencho. It is my understanding that the inquest into the death of George Nkencho is due to reconvene in June. However, it is also my understanding that the inquest cannot properly reconvene until such time as the Garda Síochána Ombudsman Commission, GSOC, investigation into his death is complete. That investigation is not yet complete....

Ceisteanna - Questions: Departmental Bodies (17 May 2022)

Paul McAuliffe: On the issues of public service, policing and justice, the Taoiseach's Department has for some time operated the north inner city intervention to support that community. The programme for Government makes it clear that we will roll out a similar type of intervention in similar communities around the country. The community of Ballymun has engaged with the Taoiseach and with his predecessor...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Departmental Bodies (17 May 2022)

Darren O'Rourke: I want to raise the scoping exercise established over three years ago into the death of Shane O'Farrell. That was expected to take weeks or possibly months but it was never expected to take years. It is clear that the only way forward remains the establishment of a public inquiry into the death of Shane O'Farrell, as supported by the Taoiseach and his party. Will the Taoiseach progress...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Departmental Bodies (17 May 2022)

Micheál Martin: There is a range of issues to be covered. First, on the draft policing, security and community safety Bill which Deputy Bacik raised, in April of last year the general scheme was published. Among the objectives, clearly, is to provide a new, more coherent governance and oversight framework to strengthen both the external oversight of An Garda Síochána, as well as its internal...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Departmental Bodies (17 May 2022)

Catherine Murphy: There is a caveat from the CSO on the crime statistics and that continues to be in place.

Ceisteanna - Questions: Departmental Bodies (17 May 2022)

Micheál Martin: I will revert back to the Deputy. I will engage with the Minister on that. We are all looking for a comprehensively sound database in respect of the crime statistics. Deputy Daly raised the issue of GSOC and historic inquiries. The volume of cases currently being heard by GSOC is quite considerable. As I have said previously, there has to be some balance, unfortunately, in terms of...
