Covid-19 (Foreign Affairs and Trade): Statements (3 Jun 2020)

Simon Coveney: I do not think we are going to get a breakthrough on this by mid summer, which was the hope at the end of this month. I do not think there will be a request for an extension of the transition period. As has previously been the case in Brexit negotiations, when decisions and leaps forward were made, we arrived at hugely pressurised crisis points and negotiators found a way through. It looks...

Covid-19 (Foreign Affairs and Trade): Statements (3 Jun 2020)

Brendan Howlin: As most people confine themselves to their homes or least to their home areas, major issues are unfolding across our world. The murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis, which was seen by all of us, seen by the world, opened up yet again the unresolved cancer of racism. I think we have all run out of words to express our dismay at the reaction of the US President to these events but we must...

Covid-19 (Foreign Affairs and Trade): Statements (3 Jun 2020)

Simon Coveney: I think I have said a number times today that I share the concerns and outrage in this House in the context of what has unfolded in recent days in the US. I have also said that the most appropriate way for Ireland to respond to these issues is to look at itself and make sure that we are credible when we criticise internationally. We should be vocal internationally, but we do have to take a...

Covid-19 (Foreign Affairs and Trade): Statements (3 Jun 2020)

Simon Coveney: On Hong Kong, what is developing there is very concerning. Many in the population see it in the same way as Deputy Matthews - compromising the independence of Hong Kong and the one country, two systems policy that had led to a lot of stability and had a lot of international support. On human rights and international business, we have a business and human rights committee that is doing...

Covid-19 (Foreign Affairs and Trade): Statements (3 Jun 2020)

Simon Coveney: An efficient and secure Passport Service is important. Our team does a good job. Last year, we saw an extraordinary increase in the number of applications. This year is a surreal one in many ways, but we will during the summer and into the autumn get back to dealing with significant numbers of people who need their passports renewed and others who are getting passports for the first time....

Covid-19 (Foreign Affairs and Trade): Statements (3 Jun 2020)

Steven Matthews: I have a number of questions for the Tánaiste regarding the EU, foreign affairs, trade and Covid-19. Before that, I would like to mention the ongoing situation in the US and the societal implications of racism at home and abroad. The Green Party stands in solidarity with all those who have experienced racism and oppression. The horrific killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis...

Covid-19 (Foreign Affairs and Trade): Statements (3 Jun 2020)

Frank Feighan: I am delighted to have this opportunity to thank the Tánaiste, his Department and all the various Government elements on the Covid-19 response. I have had many telephone calls from parents, relations and even people in Australia, New Zealand and Canada. Well in excess of 6,000 citizens have returned. I have no doubt that many of those 6,000 may not go back to where they came from....

Covid-19 (Foreign Affairs and Trade): Statements (3 Jun 2020)

Simon Coveney: I think it is pretty clear where the Irish people stand on this issue. I speak to the ambassador, Mr. Crawford, quite regularly. I do not have a scheduled call with him, but I would not be surprised if I were to speak to him in the next week or so. What Irish people want is an appropriate political response to the outrage on the back of this awful killing and the protests that have erupted...
