Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (14 Nov 2019)

Aengus Ó Snodaigh: An nglacfaidh an Rialtas seasamh ar mhaithe leis an nGaeilge sa chóras oideachais? An ndéanfaidh sé impí ar Choimisiún na Scrúduithe Stáit tarraingt siar ón bpáipéar scrúduithe a d'fhoilsigh sé an tseachtain seo don tsraith shóisearach? Tá múinteoirí Gaeilge ag rá go soiléir go bhfuil ísliú...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (14 Nov 2019)

Joe McHugh: Gabhaim buíochas as an cheist. Chonaic mé an ráiteas san Irish Times inné faoin imní atá ar na múinteoirí scoile uilig. Bhí mé i dteagmháil le mo chuid oifigí agus leis an State Examinations Commission, SEC. Dá mbeinn in ann solúbthacht ná cuidiú a chur ar fáil maidir leis an scéal sin faoin teastas...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (14 Nov 2019)

Michael Harty: My question relates to agriculture. There has been a delay in payments to farmers whose farms have been subject to satellite mapping review. The single farm payment should have been paid in September and the area aid payment in October but those who have been subject to a mapping process have had their payments delayed. They need this money to pay the bills of their farming enterprises...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (14 Nov 2019)

Simon Coveney: As a former Minister in that Department and as someone who has applied for many payments at different times, I understand the mapping issue but until the Department gets clarity on the size of the individual parcels of land in a holding, it is difficult for it to pay out under the rules of the Common Agricultural Policy, to which it must adhere. I will, however, get the Minister to reply to...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (14 Nov 2019)

Kate O'Connell: Tá ceist agam don Aire Oideachais agus Scileanna. I raise the issue of the incredibly challenging situation regarding school places for children with autism spectrum disorder, ASD, in Dublin 2, Dublin 4, Dublin 8 and especially in Dublin 6 and Dublin 6W. In an area of 80 sq. km, there are more than 80 primary schools, but only three have an ASD unit. No unit in south Dublin will have...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (14 Nov 2019)

Joe McHugh: This issue with regard to south Dublin has been raised by a number of Deputies on all sides of the House. I assure the Deputy that we are conscious of the demand for places. The National Council for Special Education, NCSE, has been in touch with many individual schools. I have decided to invoke my powers under the legislation for a second time. I invoked it in respect of Dublin 15 last...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (14 Nov 2019)

Mary Butler: Ba mhaith liom ceist a chur ar an Aire Sláinte. Today is World Diabetes Day. This year's theme is diabetes and the family. Today we celebrate the birthday of Dr. Frederick Banting who developed insulin in 1921. There are 225,000 people in Ireland living with diabetes, 20,000 of whom have type 1 diabetes. The Minister introduced FreeStyle Libre for children and young adults aged...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (14 Nov 2019)

Simon Harris: I thank Deputy Butler for raising this important matter on World Diabetes Day. She is correct; as she has generously said, the FreeStyle Libre device has made a significant difference to the many people who have tried it. I know, however, that there is a cohort of adults who would like access to it. This is a decision for the HSE to make using its various assessment processes....

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (14 Nov 2019)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: Given that it is Thursday and that there are only two Deputies remaining, we will take their questions.

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (14 Nov 2019)

Denis Naughten: The winter initiative is being launched today but there is a specific problem in Portiuncula Hospital, Ballinasloe. Two thirds of the public health nurse posts in the community are vacant. Oncology and chemotherapy patients in the hospital cannot be discharged because of the embargo and the shortage of public health nurses. Will the Minister intervene directly to address this issue? There...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (14 Nov 2019)

Simon Harris: I thank the Deputy for his intervention on this important point. As he knows, the number of discretionary medical cards issued is increasing month on month. The holders are persons whose incomes exceed the financial threshold who but qualify on medical grounds. I agree with the Deputy that we need to alter the rules for persons with a terminal illness. We provided for this in the budget,...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (14 Nov 2019)

Bernard Durkan: Is the maritime jurisdiction Bill likely to be brought before the House at an early date? There may be implications for it arising from Brexit.

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (14 Nov 2019)

Simon Coveney: The Bill is due to be dealt with in this session and not before time. It is a matter that needs to be resolved.

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (14 Nov 2019)

Declan Breathnach: A Programme for a Partnership Government contains an explicit provision guaranteeing the Good Friday Agreement in all its parts. The decision of the Upper Tribunal in the United Kingdom in the DeSouza case in October highlighted that the foundational birthright guarantee, that is, the right of citizens of Northern Ireland to identify and be accepted as British or Irish or both, was not...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (14 Nov 2019)

Simon Coveney: I am aware that the Deputy has been concerned about this issue for some time. I am meeting later today the Secretary of State, with whom I have raised the DeSouza case on several occasions. I expect us to discuss it again this afternoon.

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (14 Nov 2019)

Niamh Smyth: The local improvement scheme, LIS, which is funded by the Department of Rural and Community Development is attempting to play catch-up after a ten-year spell in which there was absolutely no investment under the programme. Rural communities like my own in Cavan-Monaghan, particularly farming communities, are hugely dependent on the scheme. Cavan County Council has more than 220 application...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (14 Nov 2019)

Michael Ring: The local improvement scheme should really be within the remit of another Department. However, I reintroduced it because I knew that there was a need for it. To date, I have put €48 million into it. Everybody has to play a part in ensuring the success of the programme, as I have been telling local authorities and their elected representatives as they draw up their budgets. Instead...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (14 Nov 2019)

Willie O'Dea: Will the Tánaiste indicate when the Government will amend the unfair, inequitable, discriminatory and, possibly, illegal tenant purchase scheme? A commitment was given in that regard in the programme for Government and this is the 11th time I have asked about it. I would finally like an answer as to when the scheme will be reformed.

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (14 Nov 2019)

Eamon Scanlon: I join Deputy O'Dea in seeking clarity on this matter. It is a national issue, with a significant number of people experiencing discrimination. I am dealing with a case which involves a widow who has lived in her house for 50 years. She has the money to buy out the house, but she cannot do so because she does not have €15,000 a year in earned income. That is very wrong and it is...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (14 Nov 2019)

Damien English: This issue will be dealt with as part of the social housing package the Minister, Deputy Eoghan Murphy, intends to bring forward in the coming weeks. We have discussed the issue often in the House and, as Members know, the scheme is very generous. The €15,000 income requirement is in place for scientific reasons, but I agree that it is causing a difficulty. The matter is under...
