Health (Amendment) (No. 3) Bill 2021: Committee and Remaining Stages (2 Dec 2021)

Róisín Shortall: I support this amendment. It is important that we have the data to inform us when it comes to questions about rolling over legislation. In the main, the Minister has had support where he has made a case for it, but there has been a terrible dearth of data on the implications of any of this legislation. It took quite a long time to get any information - for example, on the rate of...

Health (Amendment) (No. 3) Bill 2021: Committee and Remaining Stages (2 Dec 2021)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: It is getting very late.

Health (Amendment) (No. 3) Bill 2021: Committee and Remaining Stages (2 Dec 2021)

Thomas Pringle: I will not be long. I have not been here for most of the debate, so I just want to mention that. It is vital that the amendment be supported because all legislation should require a reporting procedure. The Minister will say regulations are published and may be examined in the Oireachtas Library, but they should be brought back to the House here. This is serious legislation and has an...

Health (Amendment) (No. 3) Bill 2021: Committee and Remaining Stages (2 Dec 2021)

Catherine Connolly: I support this amendment and thank Deputy Cullinane for tabling it. This process has been difficult and the time allowed is very short. It is an essential amendment if we are seriously interested in this subject. While the Minister did not use the word “draconian”, he acknowledged this legislation has serious implications for human and fundamental rights. If he means that,...

Health (Amendment) (No. 3) Bill 2021: Committee and Remaining Stages (2 Dec 2021)

Peadar Tóibín: The truth is that the Government is travelling blind. It has been blindsided. I am not necessarily saying it is the Government’s fault, because many things have happened that people did not accept. I am not saying anybody could be fully aware of what is going to happen but the Government was going to wrap up NPHET in October. This is how close we were to the Government saying it...

Health (Amendment) (No. 3) Bill 2021: Committee and Remaining Stages (2 Dec 2021)

Stephen Donnelly: The points on masks and antigen testing are not relevant to the amendment. You cannot win. The Deputy stood up in this House time and again to say we need antigen tests and asked why we did not have them. When we bring them in-----

Health (Amendment) (No. 3) Bill 2021: Committee and Remaining Stages (2 Dec 2021)

Róisín Shortall: Sorry, as a screening tool. The Minister knows they are a screening tool.

Health (Amendment) (No. 3) Bill 2021: Committee and Remaining Stages (2 Dec 2021)

Stephen Donnelly: I did not interrupt the Deputy. She came in and said we need antigen tests and asked why we did not have them. The Government stated we have antigen tests and the Deputy stood up and said it was outrageous that we have them because an expert said they should not be used. You cannot win, in fairness.

Health (Amendment) (No. 3) Bill 2021: Committee and Remaining Stages (2 Dec 2021)

Róisín Shortall: The Minister is completely misrepresenting the point

Health (Amendment) (No. 3) Bill 2021: Committee and Remaining Stages (2 Dec 2021)

Stephen Donnelly: Countries all over Europe are using antigen tests for exactly this kind of purpose. I have supported them for a long time. The Deputy has said more times than I can count or remember that the Government needs to embrace antigen tests. When we use antigen tests, the first thing the Deputy says is that we should not be using them. That is just extraordinary.

Health (Amendment) (No. 3) Bill 2021: Committee and Remaining Stages (2 Dec 2021)

Róisín Shortall: Not for once-off-----

Health (Amendment) (No. 3) Bill 2021: Committee and Remaining Stages (2 Dec 2021)

Stephen Donnelly: I will speak to the amendment. I fully appreciate its intent. I cannot accept it because of technical concerns, such as the lack of definition in respect of certain matters, but I believe that what the Deputy is seeking to do is entirely appropriate and reasonable. I would like to commit to two things, to go further. First, I have a report on the operation of mandatory hotel quarantine to...
