Planning and Development (Amendment) (No. 2) Bill 2022 [Seanad]: Instruction to Committee (13 Jul 2022)

Danny Healy-Rae: I want to voice my opposition to the ramming through of this very important motion this morning, when only a handful of Deputies will get only a couple of minutes to talk. We certainly did not get time to deal with all these extra amendments. I am sure they will adversely affect many people who are trying to create employment. Ramming this through without any proper scrutiny reflects...

Planning and Development (Amendment) (No. 2) Bill 2022 [Seanad]: Instruction to Committee (13 Jul 2022)

Thomas Pringle: It is shocking that we are discussing a motion to allow the Government to table a set of amendments covering more than 50 pages to a Bill that is to be dealt with later on today. It is mind-boggling when you say it like that. The contempt the Government shows for this House really is shocking. Yesterday, we saw a Bill rushed through to enable the ratification of a treaty we signed 50 years...

Planning and Development (Amendment) (No. 2) Bill 2022 [Seanad]: Instruction to Committee (13 Jul 2022)

Michael Healy-Rae: I highlight how disappointed, shocked and upset I am at the manner in which the guillotine procedure is being used today. There is a lack of confidence in the whole planning system and the process around the granting of planning permission that is compounded by a number of factors. On top of everything else, the manner in which this legislation is being passed is going to further erode...

Planning and Development (Amendment) (No. 2) Bill 2022 [Seanad]: Instruction to Committee (13 Jul 2022)

Richard O'Donoghue: I am a member of the Joint Oireachtas Committee on Housing, Local Government and Heritage, along with other colleagues who are present. The manner in which these amendments have been brought before us at such short notice, with the use of the guillotine procedure, is another insight into the state of the Government. I am involved in a lot of planning in County Limerick. The granting of...

Planning and Development (Amendment) (No. 2) Bill 2022 [Seanad]: Instruction to Committee (13 Jul 2022)

Richard Boyd Barrett: This is incredibly sharp practice on the part of the Government. It makes a mockery of any sort of proper oversight of legislation. We had a briefing on Monday from officials on these 48 pages of amendments. These are substantial amendments in the areas of planning that will affect the rights of people to access justice through judicial reviews and will affect what is, broadly, a good...

Planning and Development (Amendment) (No. 2) Bill 2022 [Seanad]: Instruction to Committee (13 Jul 2022)

Richard Boyd Barrett: The Government is trying to make fools of people as it does every year at this time as we head towards the summer recess. It barrels through a deluge of legislation, and guillotines it to get through and smuggles in matters that, if they were scrutinised properly, could be of serious import and concern to people. We will not have the chance, and the public will have no chance whatsoever, to...

Planning and Development (Amendment) (No. 2) Bill 2022 [Seanad]: Instruction to Committee (13 Jul 2022)

Seán Canney: I add my voice of concern to the fact that so many of these amendments are coming in at such a late stage and are very much outside the scope of the original Bill. At last week's Business Committee meeting, we allowed an extra hour for discussion and debate on the Bill but that was before these amendments came in. There is a case to be answered regarding why this is being done in such a...

Planning and Development (Amendment) (No. 2) Bill 2022 [Seanad]: Instruction to Committee (13 Jul 2022)

Cian O'Callaghan: First, there are media reports this morning that one of the amendments is being withdrawn. Is that the case? Are any of the amendments being withdrawn? Perhaps the Minister of State will let us know in his concluding remarks.
