Ceisteanna - Questions - Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Assisted Human Reproduction (3 Dec 2021)

Roderic O'Gorman: I certainly agree. Urgency is important in this regard. However, I am sure the Deputy will agree that it is important we get this right in light of the complexity and the different situations we are dealing with. As I have said, a Bill on AHR is being advanced by the Minister, Deputy Stephen Donnelly. I believe it went underwent pre-legislative scrutiny in the term of the previous...

Ceisteanna - Questions - Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Residential Institutions (3 Dec 2021)

Holly Cairns: 2. To ask the Minister for Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth the way the proposals for the payment rates of the mother and baby institutions payment scheme were arrived at. [59652/21]

Ceisteanna - Questions - Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Residential Institutions (3 Dec 2021)

Holly Cairns: How were the proposals for the payment rates under the mother and baby institutions payment scheme arrived at? One of the most disgraceful aspects of the Government's redress scheme for survivors of these institutions is the payment rates. Mothers who spent less than three months in an institution are to receive a mere €5,000. These women could have endured human rights violations...

Ceisteanna - Questions - Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Residential Institutions (3 Dec 2021)

Roderic O'Gorman: In developing the proposals for the Government, extensive thought was given to how best to structure a fair and sensitive payment scheme for survivors of mother and baby institutions. I asked an interdepartmental group to develop proposals for a scheme and to make recommendations for the overall approach to the payments as well as potential payment rates. With regard to the payment...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Child Abuse (2 Dec 2021)

The Dáil adjourned at at 11.22 p.m. until 9 a.m. on Friday, 3 December 2021.

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Child Abuse (2 Dec 2021)

Roderic O'Gorman: I thank the Deputy for raising this important matter. Reports of historical sexual abuse in St. John Ambulance in the 1990s have been highlighted over recent years. Initially the case concerned three men who made allegations against one named adult. Two of these individuals were under 18 at the time of the abuse. All three people and the accused were volunteers with St. John Ambulance. A...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Child Abuse (2 Dec 2021)

Chris Andrews: I know the Minister is absolutely on the survivors' side; that is not in question. The difficulty is that Dr. Shannon has had no contact from St. John Ambulance. Its representatives talk about engaging in the process but they do not actually do it. If organisations with a clear history of sexual abuse refuse to co-operate with reviews and investigations into these crimes, we need more than...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Child Abuse (2 Dec 2021)

Roderic O'Gorman: I want the record to be clear. My Department provides no funding to St. John Ambulance as a youth organisation. I met a survivor who explained his experience. I subsequently met the board of St. John Ambulance to discuss both its current child protection procedures, which Tusla has assured me are in compliance with Children First, and a review of the historical cases. I encouraged and...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Road Network (2 Dec 2021)

Roderic O'Gorman: I thank the Deputy very much. I am taking this issue for the Minister, Deputy Ryan. Obviously, as Minister for Transport, Deputy Ryan has responsibility for overall policy and Exchequer funding in respect of the national roads programme. Once funding arrangements have been put in place with Transport Infrastructure Ireland, TII, under the Roads Acts 1993-2015 and in line with the national...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Road Network (2 Dec 2021)

Colm Burke: I am concerned that the Minister has spoken about the first half of 2022. It was my understanding that planning for this project was to start in January 2022, in other words, the route would have been identified by that time. Consideration has already been confined to two possible routes with regard to bypassing Mallow and so on. The Minister is now talking about the first half of the...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Road Network (2 Dec 2021)

Roderic O'Gorman: I take the Deputy's point with regard to clarity on what is meant by the first half of the year. I cannot deliver that clarity right now. I will engage with the Minister, Deputy Ryan, and ask him to come back with some more clarity on that particular point. It is important to note that the route selection element is being progressed. TII is actively progressing it and is engaging with...

Child Abuse

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Child Abuse (2 Dec 2021)

Chris Andrews: I thank the Acting Chairman for staying to this hour. I appreciate it. I also thank the Minister for coming in at this hour and giving me the opportunity to discuss this very important matter. Most people will be well aware of the work St. John Ambulance does and the services it provides. We are all used to seeing its presence at a wide range of sporting events including GAA, soccer and...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Dental Services (2 Dec 2021)

Anne Rabbitte: I thank the Deputy for raising this important matter, which I am taking on behalf of the Minister for Health, Deputy Stephen Donnelly. The Minister is acutely aware that access to dental services for medical card holders under the dental treatment services scheme, DTSS, has become an ever-increasing problem during the pandemic. The problem is that too many dentists contracted by the HSE to...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Dental Services (2 Dec 2021)

Michael Moynihan: The issue here is that dentists have withdrawn from the scheme. I gather from the Minister of State's reply, for which I thank her, that an engagement was held in June. That is almost six months ago. This is a crisis. What has happened during those six months? Extra funding has been made available in the budget. What is the commitment? I fear the words "early in the new year". There...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Dental Services (2 Dec 2021)

Anne Rabbitte: I take on board everything the Deputy said and I will liaise directly with the Minister, Deputy Donnelly. It is important to say on his behalf that his officials have been engaging with the dental profession. He has secured funding. I will speak to the Minister about taking immediate action and engaging with the Irish Dental Association. All Deputies are contacted by constituents who are...

Road Network

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Road Network (2 Dec 2021)

Colm Burke: I am seeking confirmation that the N20-M20 road project from Cork to Limerick will proceed with urgency in view of the fact, as reported in The Irish Timesrecently, that 62 people have died on this road in the past 25 years. Between 2016 and 2018, 87 collisions were recorded on the N20, seven of which involved the death of road users, and a further 13 collisions led to serious injuries, with...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Health Services (2 Dec 2021)

Anne Rabbitte: I thank the Deputy for the opportunity to discuss Cappagh hospital and orthopaedics. I acknowledge my colleagues, Deputies Brendan Smith, Cahill and McAuliffe, who brought me to Cappagh hospital and gave me the opportunity to see at first hand what the Deputy has articulated to me. The Deputies also gave me the opportunity to meet the mother of the Deputy's young constituent, and I also met...
