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

Eoghan Murphy: I move: "That the Bill be now read a Second Time." The Citizens' Assemblies Bill 2019 is a technical measure designed to enable the register of electors to be used for selecting members of the citizens' assemblies which the Government, on 11 June 2019, agreed to establish. Two assemblies are being established. These are the citizens' assembly 2019 and the Dublin citizens' assembly. The...

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

Darragh O'Brien: I thank the Minister for outlining and summarising the provisions of the Bill. This is a short Bill designed to facilitate the establishment of citizens' assemblies to deal with two very important issues. One relates to gender equality, the gender pay gap and all other matters that go with it, particularly the need to examine whether Article 40.1.2° should be removed from the...

Public Service Pay Commission Report on the Permanent Defence Force: Statements (Resumed) (11 Jul 2019)

Paul Kehoe: I thank everyone who has contributed to this afternoon's debate. It is unfortunate that some Members have made accusations and then scurried out of the Chamber before the reply. To be fair to Deputy Boyd Barrett, he told me he had to leave early. People have referred to the 96 cent per day increase. Members are all well-educated people. They should multiply 96 cent by 9,500 and see what...

Public Service Pay Commission Report on the Permanent Defence Force: Statements (Resumed) (11 Jul 2019)

Catherine Murphy: The Minister of State does not need me to repeat what has been said. It has been made abundantly clear by the thousands of members of the Defence Forces that the proposals put forward in this report are simply not going to cut it for them and their families. We know that the report was hamstrung from the outset by virtue of its terms of references and what it could and could not look at....

Public Service Pay Commission Report on the Permanent Defence Force: Statements (Resumed) (11 Jul 2019)

Richard Boyd Barrett: It is deeply ironic but maybe typical of Fine Gael that this report has been published at a time when it pushes ever harder to abandon Ireland's traditional military neutrality and deploy Irish troops in extremely dangerous missions, such as that in Mali, or push us into greater involvement with the emerging European army and its relationship with NATO. Mali is effectively a French colonial...

Public Service Pay Commission Report on the Permanent Defence Force: Statements (Resumed) (11 Jul 2019)

Catherine Connolly: I welcome the opportunity to take part in this debate. I have read the report and it would be churlish of me not to welcome the package. However, as has already been mentioned, the package can only be judged in the context of the géarchéim or the emergency on the ground. This certainly was not a proactive action by the Government and I am struck by the Minister of State's...

Public Service Pay Commission Report on the Permanent Defence Force: Statements (Resumed) (11 Jul 2019)

I had to put water in the milk to have enough for the children. We dont even have enough for breakfast for all. I am on leave but I am gonna go into the barracks, throw on a uniform and sneak in the cookhouse to grab some free lunch and hopefully I'll...

Public Service Pay Commission Report on the Permanent Defence Force: Statements (Resumed) (11 Jul 2019)

Brendan Ryan: The Irish armed forces have provided loyal public service to our country, at home and abroad, throughout the past century. In the coming years, the Defence Forces will undoubtedly face new challenges with the intensification of organised crime and drug trafficking, the enhanced need to patrol our territorial waters after Brexit, and the potential return of dissident republican activity....

Public Service Pay Commission Report on the Permanent Defence Force: Statements (11 Jul 2019)

Fiona O'Loughlin: Last Thursday there was considerable anticipation of the report. There was genuine hope it would contain something that would restore the morale of the Defence Forces. They are the men and women who defend this and other countries and intervene when we have crises. Sadly, that hope was not fulfilled. When we had an opportunity to read the long-overdue report, a number of things were very...
