Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Traveller Community (14 Nov 2019)

Éamon Ó Cuív: I thank the Minister of State for coming into the House to deal with this issue. I am a little disappointed that the Minister is not present because when this Dáil came together, the importance of having line Ministers present to deal with Topical Issues was stressed. A report was produced by National Traveller MABS which examined in detail the fuel poverty experienced by those...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Wastewater Treatment (14 Nov 2019)

Eoin Ó Broin: I thank the Minister for the reply. It is important to acknowledge in the figures in the report that while there has been progress, if one scratches beneath the surface it shows that although a number of urban areas are coming off the list of those in breach of the urban wastewater directive and therefore subject to the European Commission's legal action, the volume of the waste that is...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Wastewater Treatment (14 Nov 2019)

Eoghan Murphy: I thank Deputy Ó Broin for the follow-up questions. I will make a couple of points and will come back to his specific questions in a moment.

It is doing good work in this regard. If we look at the...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Job Losses (14 Nov 2019)

Thomas Pringle: We have to look and see what other parts of the country are doing as well to see whether they are keeping up to speed with us. SK biotek Ireland, based in Swords, County Dublin, has laid off approximately 150 staff. This is a serious situation. Only a year ago the company made an agreement that it would guarantee the terms and conditions of the staff for five years and yet here it is...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Job Losses (14 Nov 2019)

This...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Medicinal Products Availability (14 Nov 2019)

John Curran: The Minister of State and I go back a long way but this is an appalling answer; it really and truly is. I know he is delivering it for the Minister for Health and that it is not his role, but this is absolutely shocking. These parents had the realistic expectation that within a number of months of having the drug approved, their children would be in receipt of it. This is a degenerative...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Medicinal Products Availability (14 Nov 2019)

Lisa Chambers: On a point of order, a Cheann Comhairle, is the Minister required even to explain as to why somebody is here to deputise for him or are Members of this House supposed to just accept when somebody just does not bother to turn up? We are all here, is that-----

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Medicinal Products Availability (14 Nov 2019)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: I will explain. It is completely appropriate for a Minister to delegate a Minister of State from his or her own Department to take a Topical Issue matter. There is nothing unusual about that. If Deputies are unhappy, they can register a complaint with me on the answer, or lack of-----
