Statistics (Decade of Centenaries) Bill 2020: Second Stage [Private Members] (21 Oct 2021)

Statistics (Decade of Centenaries) Bill 2020: Second Stage [Private Members] (21 Oct 2021)

Statistics (Decade of Centenaries) Bill 2020: Second Stage [Private Members] (21 Oct 2021)

Aengus Ó Snodaigh: I listened very carefully to the Minister of State's response. My proposed legislation does not specify a period. It provides that this must be done as part of the decade of centenaries. As I said, the Minister, Deputy Martin, has already indicated that preparatory work has been done. We know from the previous two digitisation projects the various work that is required, although one or...

Statistics (Decade of Centenaries) Bill 2020: Second Stage [Private Members] (21 Oct 2021)

Frank Feighan: I move amendment No. 1: To delete all words after “That” and substitute the following: “Dáil Éireann resolves that the Statistics (Decade of Centenaries) Bill 2020 be deemed to be read a second time this day twelve months, to allow for greater analysis of the complex issues concerned and for such considerations to be taken into account in further scrutiny of...

Statistics (Decade of Centenaries) Bill 2020: Second Stage [Private Members] (21 Oct 2021)

Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire: Joe Murphy.

Statistics (Decade of Centenaries) Bill 2020: Second Stage [Private Members] (21 Oct 2021)

Frank Feighan: If there are other such issues, it is in the interest of us all that they be resolved. I think we are all mature now and cop that this should be done. I would applaud anybody for bringing them to the Minister for Defence, maybe, to get them resolved. I thank Deputy Ó Laoghaire for his contribution. As for the Army records and the archives, Deputy Martin Kenny and I share a very...

Statistics (Decade of Centenaries) Bill 2020: Second Stage [Private Members] (21 Oct 2021)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: Before proceeding, I should caution Members that by way of quotation, which may or may not be substantiated, Members should not seek to further coarsen the nature of debate in this House. I am conscious that, notwithstanding the importance of the matter before us, Teachta Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire is the only other person offering. Would it make more sense that we hear Deputy Ó...

Statistics (Decade of Centenaries) Bill 2020: Second Stage [Private Members] (21 Oct 2021)

Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire: Once there is somebody to respond to the Minister of State.

Statistics (Decade of Centenaries) Bill 2020: Second Stage [Private Members] (21 Oct 2021)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: I do not think we could stop Deputy Ó Snodaigh.

Statistics (Decade of Centenaries) Bill 2020: Second Stage [Private Members] (21 Oct 2021)

Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire: Notwithstanding what the Ceann Comhairle said, it was an elegant navigation of Standing Orders a few minutes ago. The Government amendment is a particular device and I think it is the most remarkable use yet I have seen of it. The Government regularly comes to the House to say it will look at something in a year's time. It is its way of avoiding voting against something. In this instance,...

Statistics (Decade of Centenaries) Bill 2020: Second Stage [Private Members] (21 Oct 2021)

Martin Kenny: I am sorry I was not here for the beginning of the debate; I was on a Zoom meeting as many of us are during these times. I fully support the Bill. The census of 1926 would illuminate a lot of stuff that happened during the 15-year period when there was no census. During the formation of the new State in my part of the world, Leitrim, and in Border counties there were movements of...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Primary Medical Certificates (21 Oct 2021)

Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire: I suppose there is good in that response, but it does not deal with all the issues. This process does not seem to be running at full steam. While there has been some progress made in the backlog, the community medical doctors are also doing many other jobs which puts demands on the resources. The other issue which has not been addressed is the delay in the appeals, which is a key part of...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Primary Medical Certificates (21 Oct 2021)

Frank Feighan: I accept the impact it has on people's lives and I hope the appeals will be dealt with more urgently than they have been. As I said, some 1,270 assessments were undertaken up to the end of June this year. I assure the House that if an applicant's case clearly meets the strict criteria that govern the primary medical certificate, a community medical doctor may be in a position to grant it,...

Statistics (Decade of Centenaries) Bill 2020: Second Stage [Private Members] (21 Oct 2021)

Statistics (Decade of Centenaries) Bill 2020: Second Stage [Private Members] (21 Oct 2021)

Aengus Ó Snodaigh: I move: "That the Bill be now read a Second Time." Gabhaim buíochas leis an gCeann Comhairle agus tuigim go bhfuil spéis ar leith aige sa Bhille seo. Gabhaim buíochas leis an gCoiste Gnó as é seo a roghnú ón lató chun deis a thabhairt dom an Bille seo a phlé, An Bille Staidrimh (Na Deich mBliana de Chomórthaí Céad Bliain), 2020....

Statistics (Decade of Centenaries) Bill 2020: Second Stage [Private Members] (21 Oct 2021)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: It was obviously inspired.

Statistics (Decade of Centenaries) Bill 2020: Second Stage [Private Members] (21 Oct 2021)

Aengus Ó Snodaigh: It was inspired. The Ceann Comhairle was indisposed to move it again in 2016 because he accepted the position of Ceann Comhairle. My colleagues in the Seanad, Senators Warfield and Ó Donnghaile, also moved the Bill. When it was first debated in the Seanad in 2011, it was defeated, regrettably, by the then Fine Gael-Labour Party Government Senators. I hope it will pass through this...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Special Educational Needs (21 Oct 2021)

Joan Collins: I thank the Minister of State. I am aware there is a problem and a bit of a crisis in the 3,300 schools around the country and they are finding it very difficult to get substitute teachers to cover absences. I raised the matter last week with the Tánaiste. A particular school had cover for one absent teacher and could not get other cover. This is happening in many schools. The...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Special Educational Needs (21 Oct 2021)

Josepha Madigan: On the question of substitution in general, I have outlined the measures being taken. There is the question of hours being lost. One of the schemes we introduced is the Covid Learning and Support Scheme, CLASS, at €56.2 million, which is to help children who lost time during Covid-19. That is in addition to the summer provision and the supplementary scheme at Easter. If children...
