Mandatory Beef Price Transparency Bill 2019: First Stage (17 Oct 2019)

Brian Stanley: I move:That leave be granted to introduce a Bill entitled an Act to provide for the establishment of a source of data on the prices being received for beef products throughout the supply chain and to provide for related matters. I welcome the opportunity to introduce this Bill. We have had a difficult situation with the beef sector and we are all well aware of the crisis that exists there,...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (17 Oct 2019)

Michael Creed: I think I answered a parliamentary question to the Deputy yesterday on this matter. I am a big admirer of the knowledge transfer programme. As Deputy McConalogue rightly acknowledges, budget 2020 provides for the existing liabilities to be met in 2020. The question is whether we will have a knowledge transfer scheme subsequent to that. That is a matter that will be considered in the...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (17 Oct 2019)

Bobby Aylward: It is with regret, disappointment and sadness that I must again raise the issue of Spinraza. Twenty-five children have been identified as suffering from spinal muscular atrophy, SMA. We fought a hard fight here and four months ago the HSE approved the provision of Spinraza for those children. When I went back to Kilkenny, I informed a family there that the drug was approved by the HSE...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (17 Oct 2019)

Pat Buckley: Twenty-five families are waiting. One family in particular came from Youghal to the gates of Leinster House and they were in contact with me recently. The HSE approved Spinraza in June, the Minister welcomed that in July, but the families still have not got it. Some of the families have contacted me and asked me if I could get a final date for when this vital medicine will be provided....

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (17 Oct 2019)

John McGuinness: Isaac Brennan was here with the Minister in the course of lobbying for the drug in question. A commitment was given that treatment would be started once the drug was approved. The drug has been approved but the treatment is being delayed. I understand there is a need for investment in personnel and infrastructure at Temple Street Hospital. Will the Tánaiste investigate the matter and...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (17 Oct 2019)

John Curran: This is a matter we raised in the House on Tuesday of this week. It was taken at the time by the Minister of State, Deputy Jim Daly. To be honest, the response is not what we expected. It was quite poor. The HSE stated:Application for approval is based on clearly defined criteria and follow these guidelines: the number of individuals treated and their commencement on treatment is as per...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (17 Oct 2019)

Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin: It is shameful that we find ourselves having to rise on this issue once again here in this Chamber. After a concerted effort by a collective of different voices across this House, we reached a point where approval was announced, yet here today, several months later, we are asking once again in the context of nothing having been done in terms of these families and those children's access to...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (17 Oct 2019)

Jim Daly: As Deputy Curran outlined, the issue was raised on Tuesday on Leaders' Questions. I did seek a response from the HSE on Tuesday to provide an update to the Deputies. On Tuesday the response I gave was to Deputy Gino Kenny and Deputy Curran. I accept the response is not satisfactory and I have asked for further clarity from the HSE, for it to give an exact date for when the drug will be...

Peter Burke: I seek an update from the Minister for Education and Skills on the progression of the Holy Family primary school in Mullingar on behalf of the principal, staff, parents and children. I urge the Minister to continue working with the Department and all contracted parties to ensure that the school is delivered by the end of the year.

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (17 Oct 2019)

Joe McHugh: I thank Deputy Burke for the continued pressure he is putting on in raising this question again. I know it reflects the desire of the community to see a conclusion. There have been so many false expectations on the date and I do not wish to add to the frustration and anxiety. I have received feedback from my officials. We are very lucky to have a great clerk of works and a good team...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (17 Oct 2019)

Tom Neville: I welcome the increase in funding for the arts, with particular reference to funding for the first time for amateur dramatic groups, which have taken a particular foothold in rural Ireland. They involve the amalgamation of people in the community involved in amateur dramatic groups. Will the Minister outline when the funding will come on stream and what the application process will be?

Out of that, for the first time in more than a decade, €250,000 will be allocated to amateur dramatic and musical societies throughout the country. That is very much to be welcomed. We hope to have a mechanism...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (17 Oct 2019)

Paul Murphy: I wish to ask about the cost of insurance working group in light of the possibility that climbing centres throughout the country will be forced to close because of the exit of insurance providers. I refer to places such as the Dublin climbing centre in Tallaght, which provides facilities for large numbers of young people and older people. It is very important in terms of physical and mental...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (17 Oct 2019)

Maurice Quinlivan: Page 33 of the programme for Government refers to tackling insurance costs. The reason I raise this issue is because there is probably not a Deputy in the Chamber who has not been lobbied by business groups, community groups and individuals whose premiums have skyrocketed. We do not believe the Government has made any particular intervention to address the situation. I urge the Government...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (17 Oct 2019)

Carol Nolan: The leisure industry not being able to get insurance is a significant one that must be urgently addressed. I have been contacted by a number of businesses. I ask for an update on the actions taken to date. I urge the Minister to hurry up with this matter because jobs across the State are at risk unless the matter is resolved.

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (17 Oct 2019)
