Criminal Justice (International Co-operation) Bill 2019: Committee Stage (Resumed) and Remaining Stages (11 Jul 2019)

Brendan Smith: While I concur with Deputy O'Callaghan, I was struck by Deputy Maureen O'Sullivan's contribution last night. Deputies O'Sullivan, Crowe and I worked with the Minister, Deputy Flanagan, when he was Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade on the terrible atrocities committed in May 1974, including the heinous murders of 34 people between Dublin and Monaghan. Of course, there have been other...

Citizens' Assemblies Bill 2019 [Seanad]: Second and Subsequent Stages (11 Jul 2019)

Jan O'Sullivan: I will be brief. This is a fairly simple Bill, primarily facilitating the use of the register of electors for selection of certain Citizens' Assemblies. This is fairly straightforward but I will say a few words about the concept from the perspective of somebody who was a member of the Oireachtas Joint Committee on the Eighth Amendment of the Constitution. We had some doubts about the...

Citizens' Assemblies Bill 2019 [Seanad]: Second and Subsequent Stages (11 Jul 2019)

Eoghan Murphy: I thank the Deputies for their contributions. Deputy O'Sullivan is right - this is essentially a technical Bill, but it is part of a larger framework of political and democratic engagement in the process of informing and reforming decision-making in a progressive and pluralistic society. We are leading the way in doing that, particularly in decisions we have made in recent years which came...

Citizens' Assemblies Bill 2019 [Seanad]: Second and Subsequent Stages (11 Jul 2019)

Eoghan Murphy: Implementation is a matter for the Oireachtas, not for me. Many of the really serious recommendations that have come from previous Citizens' Assemblies and Constitutional Conventions have been implemented. Some are unfortunately still stuck in committees that Fine Gael does not control. I have said before that I am open to enshrining a right to housing, as is the Taoiseach. Currently we...

Citizens' Assemblies Bill 2019 [Seanad]: Second and Subsequent Stages (11 Jul 2019)

Eoin Ó Broin: I apologise for missing the Minister's remarks but I have had a quick look at them here. Sinn Féin is supporting this proposition. I have to say that I was a sceptic when the Constitutional Convention, as it was then called, was initiated. I thought at the time that it was the Government of the day not being willing to grapple with issues and, therefore, subcontracting them out to...
