Ceisteanna - Questions: Cabinet Committees (19 Oct 2021)

Matt Carthy: The Taoiseach will be aware, I hope, that a very important motion was passed in the Assembly yesterday which welcomed Vice-President Šefčovič's support for formal dialogue between the Assembly and the EU. That was very significant. The motion set out where the democratic majority in the North stands when it comes to these matters. The motion, as adopted, acknowledged the...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Cabinet Committees (19 Oct 2021)

Paul Murphy: I raise with the Taoiseach the question of the homophobic and transphobic attacks being carried out by the ruling party in Poland, Law and Justice. Like the Hungarian regime, it has engaged in continuous attacks on LGBTQI+ people. The Polish President has described homosexuality as a foreign ideology that is "worse than communism". The Archbishop of Krakow has described it as "a rainbow...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Cabinet Committees (19 Oct 2021)

Mick Barry: I just want to put that on the record. When will the European Council set aside time to discuss an action plan to combat femicide? In Ireland, the death toll mounts. I refer to Nadine Lott, Anne Colomines and many others, including Katrina Rainey who was burned alive in her car in Derry last week. In Europe, in just 20 countries more than 1,000 femicides took place in 2018. There is a...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Cabinet Committees (19 Oct 2021)

Micheál Martin: I thank the Deputies for the many issues raised. Deputy Haughey raised a range of issues in respect of the strategic compass, Afghanistan, cybersecurity and Slovenia and the western Balkans, which reflects his deep interest in European affairs. On the strategic compass, security and defence issues are still under consideration. Deputy Haughey is correct to identify those issues as having...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Taoiseach's Meetings and Engagements (19 Oct 2021)

Micheál Martin: I propose to take Questions Nos. 12 to 14, inclusive, together. I attended the British-Irish Association conference held in Pembroke College, Oxford, on Friday, 3 September. The Minister for Foreign Affairs and the Minister for Finance also attended. I delivered the opening address, the text of which is available on the merrionstreet.iewebsite. This was followed by a questions and answers...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Taoiseach's Meetings and Engagements (19 Oct 2021)

Seán Haughey: The Taoiseach's speech to the BIA conference in Oxford last month was a significant one. He dealt with a number of issues affecting British-Irish relations, including the Good Friday Agreement and the obligations of the two Governments, Brexit and the Northern Ireland protocol, legacy issues and the shared island initiative. On a personal level, I welcome the Taoiseach's remarks about...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Taoiseach's Meetings and Engagements (19 Oct 2021)

Brendan Smith: Like Deputy Haughey, I welcome the Taoiseach's comments at the association's conference. I wish to refer to the European Commission's proposals last week regarding the protocol. Naturally, the Taoiseach and his colleagues in government will have contributed to the discussions in order to remove as many obstacles as possible. When I engage with people in Northern Ireland, be they business...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Taoiseach's Meetings and Engagements (19 Oct 2021)

Matt Carthy: I wrote to the Taoiseach requesting that he meet the family of Gavin McShane. In July, the Taoiseach responded to say that his officials would be in touch, but they have not been. Perhaps he could look into the matter. I welcome the Taoiseach's remarks to the BIA where he indicated that everyone had the right to argue for constitutional change or the constitutional future that he or she...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Taoiseach's Meetings and Engagements (19 Oct 2021)

Micheál Martin: First, I thank the Deputies again for their interest and for raising these issues. In respect of Deputy Haughey's points, every political party and movement has its aspirations in terms of the constitutional future of the island, including Northern Ireland, and that is as it should be. I have no issue at all in articulating that. Our party, which is the party that I lead, has a clear view...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Cross-Border Co-operation (19 Oct 2021)

Neale Richmond: I thank the Taoiseach for that detailed update and I wholeheartedly agree with the comments made by Deputy Brendan Smith, particularly on the central Border region as he knows I have ties to the area as well. I would like to ask supplementary questions on two areas. The Taoiseach mentioned the shared island economic recovery dialogue. There is a great opportunity for the State to lead here...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Cross-Border Co-operation (19 Oct 2021)

Paul Murphy: I want to raise the issue of workers and trade union rights, North and South. In the South we are governed by the Industrial Relations Act 1990, which banned political strikes, solidarity actions, solidarity strikes and secondary picketing, and which restricted workers' rights to organise. In the North, workers and trade unionists face Thatcher era legislation with similar effect. The...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Cross-Border Co-operation (19 Oct 2021)

Alan Farrell: Like my colleague, Deputy Richmond, I would like to mention the wonderful opportunity the people of Northern Ireland have in the offer the European Union has made on the protocol. That has been welcomed in Northern Ireland and I hope it will be adopted in due course. My question on the shared island unit is on whether or not its continued operation will be damaged in any way by the lack of...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Cross-Border Co-operation (19 Oct 2021)

Bernard Durkan: Along with my colleagues, I want to congratulate the Taoiseach on the initiatives taken. Having regard to his discussions with the various leaders, community groups and academics in Northern Ireland, is it accepted that the potential for the concept is greater than was first anticipated? Can the Taoiseach see a situation where this particular initiative can take the place of encouraging...
