Child and Family Agency (Amendment) Bill 2021: Second Stage (Resumed) (21 Oct 2021)

Cormac Devlin: I welcome the introduction of the Child and Family Agency (Amendment) Bill 2021. The purpose of the Bill is to give full effect to the Taoiseach's announcement on 27 June 2020 that oversight of certain education and welfare functions would return to the Department of Education. Those functions, namely, the functions vested in the Minister for Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and...

Child and Family Agency (Amendment) Bill 2021: Second Stage (Resumed) (21 Oct 2021)

Bernard Durkan: I am glad to have an opportunity to speak on this important Bill. From my experience dealing with welfare issues in respect of children, there are one or two things to note, one of which is continuity. Continuity is hugely important to the child. Children are at a very formative age and, particularly if they have had disturbances in the past, are very conscious of who they are dealing with...

Ivana Bacik: I will continue the debate on the Child and Family Agency (Amendment) Bill 2021, which we commenced yesterday. I believe I had just moved the adjournment of the debate and so had not yet had the chance to say that the Labour Party is happy to support this Bill. This Bill provides for amendments that might be described as somewhat technical but which are nonetheless important. They give...

Covid-19: Reframing the Challenge, Continuing our Recovery and Reconnecting: Statements (21 Oct 2021)

Stephen Donnelly: I thank the Deputies for contributing to this important debate this evening. I welcome the opportunity to hear from colleagues as to what is and is not working, and where more needs to be done. I will begin with the excellent contribution from Deputy Connolly. Some of the points she raised have also be raised by other Deputies this evening. Deputy Connolly referred to people who have...

Covid-19: Reframing the Challenge, Continuing our Recovery and Reconnecting: Statements (21 Oct 2021)

Catherine Connolly: I will start on a positive note and thank the Minister for coming back to me about compliance. He said he would do it and he did. The level of compliance is worrying. I have six minutes so I will make a few points but I wanted to start by thanking the Minister. From the beginning I asked for a human rights approach on this topic. I thank Deputy Tóibín for asking for this to go...

Covid-19: Reframing the Challenge, Continuing our Recovery and Reconnecting: Statements (21 Oct 2021)

Aengus Ó Snodaigh: It has been stopped for a while.

Covid-19: Reframing the Challenge, Continuing our Recovery and Reconnecting: Statements (21 Oct 2021)

Catherine Connolly: I will send letters I have to the Minister and the Ministers of State. They are from 21 October and 24 September. I do not expect them do deal with them during my speech. They show what we are dealing with. In dealing with two agencies in Galway, the Health Service Executive states that the waiting list for children in respite services is 34 weeks, for enhanced services it is 14 weeks...

Covid-19: Reframing the Challenge, Continuing our Recovery and Reconnecting: Statements (21 Oct 2021)

Michael Collins: I thank the medical staff who have been at the forefront and worked tirelessly throughout the pandemic in community hospitals and general hospitals. I commend them on their bravery despite the difficulties they have experienced. While these people are professionals, what they have seen must have been terribly traumatic for them. Often, they were away from their families and it must have...

Covid-19: Reframing the Challenge, Continuing our Recovery and Reconnecting: Statements (21 Oct 2021)

Colm Burke: I thank the Minister and all the Deputies for their contributions to this debate. It is important to discuss the various challenges that exist. While 92.4% of people over 18 years of age have been fully vaccinated, unfortunately, in this case vaccination does not give immunity. Earlier, my colleague outlined how one can be fully vaccinated but still be a carrier of and contract Covid-19....

Covid-19: Reframing the Challenge, Continuing our Recovery and Reconnecting: Statements (21 Oct 2021)

Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire: Like Deputy Gould, I briefly raise the case of Mr. Nadim Hussain, who is on hunger strike and ask that the Minister for Justice give it her attention and see whether she can assist. School leaders and boards of management feel isolated. They can hardly get hold of the HSE and they feel completely abandoned by the Department of Education. The changes in respect of self-isolation were...

Covid-19: Reframing the Challenge, Continuing our Recovery and Reconnecting: Statements (21 Oct 2021)

Peadar Tóibín: The Government made some seriously important decisions this week regarding Covid and restrictions and, true to form, it did not provide any space for a debate. There has been a democracy deficit in this country since Covid emerged. The elected representatives of the people have been sidestepped in respect of most of the important decisions that have been made. It is only because I called...

Covid-19: Reframing the Challenge, Continuing our Recovery and Reconnecting: Statements (21 Oct 2021)

Mick Barry: I will start by making a point on hospitality and the situation we will have tomorrow. In the past 24 to 48 hours, we have heard from the hotel industry, the restaurateurs and the publicans. The group we have not heard from very much in the media, and I challenge the media on this, is the workers in the hospitality industry. In some ways this is not surprising. Those workers are generally...
