Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (18 Dec 2019)

Aindrias Moynihan: Staying with the situation with childcare providers, I want to raise a slight variation on the issue of registration. Last week, we discussed with the Minister the fact that over 200 childcare providers have not engaged in any way with the system while several hundred others had not completed registration. At that point, the Minister confirmed that they would not be in a position to be...

Leo Varadkar: My understanding is that the registration is close to 100%. I am sure there are exceptions, however. The issue of insurance is a separate matter. That is the information I have. I am sorry I cannot give the Deputy any more information.

Eugene Murphy: The issue of insurance for childcare providers has been adequately discussed and, in fairness, the Taoiseach gave answers to it earlier. I want to raise the issue of insurance for businesses in general. Every week, owners of filling stations, hotels, playgrounds, as well as community groups, GAA and soccer clubs, tell me how concerned they are about the cost of insurance. While I...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (18 Dec 2019)

Eugene Murphy: It will hit employment levels and communities. When can we expect movement? Deputy Micheál Martin referred earlier to a way out of this by using IPB Insurance to resolve some of the problem. We need serious Government intervention right now.

Charles Flanagan: There has already been progress on this issue. I acknowledge the interest on the part of Deputy Eugene Murphy and others. Only yesterday evening in the presence of the Chief Justice, I formally launched and signed the order for the coming into effect of the Judicial Council. A part of the council’s component is the personal injuries guidelines committee which will assist Deputy...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (18 Dec 2019)

Michael Moynihan: In light of recent ongoing issues in the Garda and other public bodies, has the Government any intention of looking at an audit of fitness to practise tribunals, be they in any of the bodies or professions, in light of evidence which has come into the public domain in the recent past?

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (18 Dec 2019)

Charles Flanagan: There is ongoing continuing professional development regarding that. I acknowledge the importance of the reforms - in excess of 150 - in the Commission on the Future of Policing in Ireland report which are proceeding apace. I would be happy to engage with the Deputy bilaterally on any specific point upon which he would require further clarification.

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (18 Dec 2019)

Mary Butler: The HSE’s national service plan was published in the past two days. I acknowledge an increase of €1.4 billion in funding. However, I am astounded the plan is cutting the number of short-stay beds in public units from 1,929 to 1,720, a decrease of 209. There is no rationale behind this or explanation for it. It flies in the face of the HSE's capacity review which called for...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (18 Dec 2019)

Leo Varadkar: I will ask the Minister for Health to give the Deputy a better explanation. My recollection is that when one takes the number of beds in the round, such as fair deal, transition care, acute and short-stay, there is an increase. I do not have the exact details of that. I will ask the Minister to provide the Deputy with a proper reply.

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (18 Dec 2019)

Pat Buckley: The programme for Government deals with responsibility and accountability in the HSE. This is the third time I have raised an issue concerning protected disclosures. When a protected disclosure is made in the HSE, why is it that the HSE actually investigates its own? The Minister for Health, Deputy Harris, and the Minister of State, Deputy Jim Daly, have a copy of the protected disclosure...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (18 Dec 2019)

Leo Varadkar: I am not entirely sure as to what the Deputy is referring, making it difficult to respond. There are procedures within the Protected Disclosures Act which outline how they are managed. First, they are protected which means that the person making any allegation or disclosure cannot be identified, deliberately or inadvertently. Second, we are not allowed to be told about them because they...

Aengus Ó Snodaigh: Tá mé ag ardú an cheist seo le seacht mbliana anuas agus tá sé ardaithe agam breis agus dosaen uair. Cén uair atá an Bille digital hub (Comhairle Cathrach Bhaile Átha Cliath) a chun teacht os comhair na Dála?
