Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (12 Dec 2019)

Pat Gallagher: I call Deputy Doherty to restrain himself. I call on both the Tánaiste and the Deputy to restrain themselves. Deputy Howlin has the right to pose his question without interruption.

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (12 Dec 2019)

Brendan Howlin: I understand the Tánaiste has just responded that he does not want to comment about an individual leaving his position. Chronic pain is a shocking thought for anybody but it is particularly acute for children. We had one paediatric pain consultant in the State who has now stepped down from his post. Quite frankly, it is not an acceptable comment to simply say that we will advertise...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (12 Dec 2019)

Brendan Howlin: There are 75 children a year using the service. One can imagine their attitude and concerns facing into Christmas. Can I ask him to reflect further on this, as we need to have a response for those families this side of Christmas? Will he speak with the Minister for Health to ensure that some provision, comfort and succour is given to those families, who are facing the prospect of an...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (12 Dec 2019)

Simon Coveney: I will speak to the Minister. The reason I responded in that way to Deputy Calleary is because I only learned about this issue this morning on my way in. In the case of something like this, it is important that one gives an informed response. If one does not have the information, it is difficult to do that. Clearly, where families have children under the care of an individual who is...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (12 Dec 2019)

Tommy Broughan: The Tánaiste was pursuing some efforts to realise a two-state solution in Israel-Palestine. We had meetings here and I know he has been in the area. Are those efforts abandoned now, given that the Israelis are now heading into their third general election in a very short time or are they still ongoing? What is the possibility? The reality is that we need to have and should work...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (12 Dec 2019)

Simon Coveney: I thank the Deputy for this question. As people will know, I have a lot of interest in this issue. I was in Israel and Palestine last week and met all the of the key political players there, from the Israeli Prime Minister to the Palestinian President. I subsequently asked for and got a debate at the Foreign Affairs Council, FAC, this week on how the European Union can collectively protect...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (12 Dec 2019)

Mattie McGrath: The programme for Government is strong in its support for agri-industry. The Road Safety Authority, RSA needs be we reined in somewhat. I know of a contractor in west Tipperary who has been pulled in by the RSA and by An Garda Síochána twice and has been asked to have his trailer tested. He went to different test centres but the people there had never heard of such a test. He...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (12 Dec 2019)

Pat Gallagher: I call Deputy Coppinger to speak now.

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (12 Dec 2019)

Ruth Coppinger: I wish to raise a very important issue with the Tánaiste on the minimum wage. As he is aware, his Government did not give an increase this year. There are many groups of workers who are facing into Christmas in dire stress while living on the minimum wage. There is one group that is working in community centres, and he may have seen their plight highlighted. They have a real...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (12 Dec 2019)

Pat Gallagher: If the Tánaiste does not have the detail perhaps he might ask the relevant Minister to reply.

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (12 Dec 2019)

Simon Coveney: The Government wants to apply the recommended increase for the minimum wage and subject to getting clarity on Brexit, we will do that. We always said that we will follow the recommendations of the Low Pay Commission to introduce what I believe is the fifth increase in the minimum wage over the last eight to nine years.

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (12 Dec 2019)

Pat Gallagher: In the interests of fairness, I have a note of those Deputies who raised questions on Tuesday and Wednesday. I will first call on those Deputies who did not speak on those days, the first of whom I now call to speak is Deputy Burton.

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (12 Dec 2019)

Simon Coveney: I thank the Deputy. This is an issue that has been raised this week by Deputy Murphy O'Mahony and Senator Tim Lombard as well. The vast majority of post-primary school capacity is not an issue and schools can enrol all pupils that are seeking a school place. Where issues exist, Department of Education and Skills officials actively engage with all the relevant parties to resolve them and...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (12 Dec 2019)

Michael Collins: I thank the Tánaiste for his reply. As I said earlier, the people of Bandon are rightly angry. Year after year there has been under-investment in their town. The flood relief scheme is now under way, long after the destruction of business properties and many hard working people having been put out of business. The southern by-pass remains unfinished despite Government promises that...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (12 Dec 2019)

Simon Coveney: I have already answered "Yes" to the Deputy's question. I know Bandon well. It is a great town and we should not be talking it down. The Government is investing in Bandon and will continue to do so. There is a particular problem in regard to post-primary school places. The Government has committed to investing in a permanent solution but it will not provide significant accommodation...
