Ceisteanna (Atógáil) - Questions (Resumed): Cabinet Committees (18 Dec 2019)

Leo Varadkar: That undermines any public health defence that may be made in the courts because the coal industry can say that if it is being argued that coal is being banned on public health grounds, it has scientific information that shows that burning turf and wood is just as bad for public health, and therefore the public health argument falls. That is the problem we are facing. We do not want to ban...

Leo Varadkar: I propose to take Questions Nos. 9 and 10 together.

Requests are examined by my staff with regard to the need for and purpose of travel, destination, availability and suitability of other travel...

Ceisteanna (Atógáil) - Questions (Resumed): Ministerial Travel (18 Dec 2019)

Micheál Martin: It is blindingly obvious that the bilateral meetings that took place in Zagreb, outside of the venue for the meeting of Fine Gael's European political party were brief, formal and a cover for those, such as the Taoiseach, who used official transport to claim that it was official business. Croatia, however, is a partner and ally of Ireland's in the European Union, and the fact that the...

Ceisteanna (Atógáil) - Questions (Resumed): Ministerial Travel (18 Dec 2019)

Joan Burton: On the Croatian meeting of the European People's Party, EPP, of which Fine Gael is a member, will the Taoiseach indicate the arrangements made by the leaders of the European People's Party in respect of appointments, given that the European People's Party, like the other party groups in the European Parliament, is fairly extensively funded by the European institutions and that it would be...

Ceisteanna (Atógáil) - Questions (Resumed): Cabinet Committees (18 Dec 2019)

Leo Varadkar: I propose to take Questions Nos. 5 to 8, inclusive, together. Following the reorganisation of the Cabinet committee structures in July this year, the Cabinet committee on the environment was established. It covers issues relating to the environment, including climate action and the implementation of the Government's climate action plan. The Climate Action Plan 2019: To Tackle Climate...

Ceisteanna (Atógáil) - Questions (Resumed): Cabinet Committees (18 Dec 2019)

Martin Kenny: I want to raise with the Taoiseach the issue of the relationship of Government with the plastics industry in particular. Last month, the Corporate Europe Observatory published a damning and in-depth article exposing the Government's close relationship with the plastics industry. Much of the information in the article came from freedom of information, FOI, documents secured by journalist,...

Ceisteanna (Atógáil) - Questions (Resumed): Cabinet Committees (18 Dec 2019)

Richard Boyd Barrett: It is absolutely freezing outside, and I think most people have felt that cold. We should bear this in mind over the next number of weeks because we have hundreds of thousands of people in this country affected by fuel poverty. For elderly people, in some cases, it is life threatening. There are hundreds of thousands of people in receipt of the fuel allowance. These are, in the main,...

Ceisteanna (Atógáil) - Questions (Resumed): Cabinet Committees (18 Dec 2019)

Micheál Martin: I want to raise two issues in regard to the Cabinet committee on the environment and the work, or lack of work, on the part of Government in regard to the environment. I have repeatedly asked the Taoiseach about the electric vehicle target under the climate action plan and I have pointed out to him that to meet the target set of 1 million vehicles in ten years, almost every vehicle purchased...

Ceisteanna (Atógáil) - Questions (Resumed): Cabinet Committee Meetings (18 Dec 2019)

Richard Boyd Barrett: An issue in respect of which I - no more than anybody else - have tabled hundreds of parliamentary questions since I entered the Dáil in 2011, is forestry. Those questions date right back to the misguided plan to sell off the harvesting rights of Coillte. In the interim, there has been, at a rhetorical level, an improvement in terms of the Government's official policy on forestry,...

Ceisteanna (Atógáil) - Questions (Resumed): Cabinet Committee Meetings (18 Dec 2019)

Joan Burton: I am speaking as a member of the Fingal walkers. What is remarkable in walking all of the land of north County Dublin, which we have been doing on and off for 20 years, is the massive destruction of hedgerows and the development of super-large fields for grain growing in which there are no trees or hedgerows and everything has been chopped down to a height of 6 ft. The Taoiseach and I have...

Ceisteanna (Atógáil) - Questions (Resumed): Cabinet Committee Meetings (18 Dec 2019)

Micheál Martin: In recent weeks, the Taoiseach has rolled out what is already a highly negative campaign on his behalf and on that of his party. Who he thinks he is impressing with this is anyone's guess. One part of this negative campaign is the ridiculous claim that everyone who supported a proposal for more investment in public transport, including a major improvement in rural public transport services,...

Ceisteanna (Atógáil) - Questions (Resumed): Cabinet Committee Meetings (18 Dec 2019)

Leo Varadkar: I thank the Deputies for their questions and contributions. I assure the House that the Government is deeply committed to fully supporting and developing Ireland's beef sector and to protecting the incomes of beef farmers. As we all understand, the Government does not have a role to play in determining the price that beef farmers get from factories. However, I would like to see an increase...
