Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (14 Oct 2021)

Catherine Connolly: Thank you, Deputy.

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (14 Oct 2021)

Joan Collins: A serious crisis is building up, as noted by the Irish Primary Principals Network. We could have a case where children are sent home from class because schools cannot provide teachers.

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (14 Oct 2021)

Leo Varadkar: I thank the Deputy for raising this issue. As she knows, the budget provides additional funding for more teachers, special needs assistants and special education teachers, as well as a reduction in the pupil-teacher ratio. That money has been allocated but it does not necessarily mean schools will be able to find people who are appropriately qualified. If the Deputy passes the details of...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (14 Oct 2021)

Catherine Connolly: I ask Deputies for their co-operation as there are 13 more speakers to get through. Some Members are indicating that they wish to come in on another question. I remind them that there is a new system in place and they may not come in on another Member's question.

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (14 Oct 2021)

Emer Higgins: This week's budget included a lot of wins for women, including a €31 million healthcare package that will help to tackle period poverty and provide investment in sexual assault treatment and maternity services. The provision of free contraception for young women aged 17 to 25 is particularly progressive. This idea was raised during the debate on the referendum on the eighth...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (14 Oct 2021)

Carol Nolan: Foetal anticonvulsant syndrome is a condition that affects children born to women who were prescribed the anti-epileptic drug Epilim during pregnancy. Children exposed to this drug in the womb have a higher chance of genetic malformations compared to the general population. An additional 40% of children exposed to Epilim experience developmental delays and have a three to five times greater...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (14 Oct 2021)

Leo Varadkar: I thank the Deputy. I know this is a very important issue. It affects some of my constituents and some of the Deputy’s. I have read up on it but I have not had an up-to-date briefing for quite some time, so I am reluctant to answer the Deputy’s questions in full for fear of giving her misinformation. I will ensure that my office is in touch with the Minister, Deputy Stephen...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (14 Oct 2021)

Carol Nolan: I thank the Tánaiste for his constructive response and his commitment to seek further information, which I am sure the families will appreciate. I want to point out that the Minister, Deputy Stephen Donnelly, did commit to convening a stakeholder group to see what can be done and, certainly, to stamp out the risks associated with Epilim. It is vital that the stakeholder group be...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (14 Oct 2021)

Leo Varadkar: I thank the Deputy. We will all acknowledge that Epilim is a very effective medicine in controlling epilepsy but, of course, if anyone is pregnant, they need to be made aware of any risks when it comes to any medicine they may take and what risks may affect their child. It is always a difficulty when treating pregnant women that the medicine they often need to control their condition can...

Retirement of Staff Members (14 Oct 2021)

Catherine Connolly: Before moving on to Questions on Promised Legislation, ba mhaith liom cúpla focal a rá faoi Gerry O’Gorman, an príomhoifigeach seirbhíse i dTithe an Oireachtais. Tá mé díreach curtha ar an eolas go bhfuil sé ag éirí as a phost tar éis 21 bliain ag obair ar ár son agus ar son an chórais dhaonlathach. Sin 21 bliain as...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (14 Oct 2021)

Catherine Connolly: I remind Members that this is Questions on Promised Legislation and also on issues arising under the programme for government. I ask that we avoid statements. If Members choose to make comments across the floor, the time is running and it is one minute. I ask Members to stick to the issues. Táim ag cur tús leis an bpróiseas anois le Sinn Féin.

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (14 Oct 2021)

Pádraig Mac Lochlainn: The Tánaiste will know that the Price report was published in July 2020 into the provision of gynaecology services at Letterkenny University Hospital. The publication of this report followed a determined campaign by patients and their families. My colleague, Deputy Doherty, raised with the Minister, Deputy Eamon Ryan, and with the Tánaiste last year the need for all...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (14 Oct 2021)

Catherine Connolly: The Deputy should conclude.

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (14 Oct 2021)

Pádraig Mac Lochlainn: Finally, there is the issue of outpatient services, which are at 50%. Will the Tánaiste intervene with the Minister to resolve this issue?

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (14 Oct 2021)

Leo Varadkar: I thank the Deputy. I know this is a really important issue in Letterkenny and in Donegal. Deputy Doherty has raised it with me before, as have Deputy McHugh and the Minister, Deputy McConalogue. I welcome the publication today of a targeted assurance review of the governance arrangements for gynaecology services in Letterkenny University Hospital. The report provides an important...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (14 Oct 2021)

Leo Varadkar: The four-month target was set by the director general of the HSE at the time, but it does remain the target: four months to outpatients and then four months to surgery. I do not know exactly what the situation is with regard to theatre time or theatre staff, but I will find out and I will get a reply for the Deputy as soon as I can. Regarding the waiting lists, Children's Health Ireland...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (14 Oct 2021)

Marian Harkin: It is not an exaggeration to say that budget 2022 ghosted agriculture. By and large, it did not feature. I accept that schemes were rolled over and some small but very welcome investments were made in forestry, organic farming, etc., but there was nothing new. There was nothing substantial for a sector that is supposed to do much of the heavy lifting when it comes to reducing emissions....

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (14 Oct 2021)

Leo Varadkar: Deputy Harkin raises a valid question on the ring-fencing of some of the carbon tax for green schemes and farmers, but I do not think it is the full picture in terms of the budget. What we agreed to when the Government was formed was that a proportion of the carbon tax would be ring-fenced for social welfare to increase the fuel allowance. We did that and we stand over it, but also that a...
