Covid-19 (Taoiseach): Statements (4 Jun 2020)

Mick Barry: I want to raise some points about the intervention of the Garda in an industrial dispute. The dispute I refer to is the Debenhams dispute. Debenhams workers, who are members of the Mandate trade union, have balloted 97% in support of industrial action. That makes this the first official strike of the lockdown and, therefore, something of a test case. In Cork city last week, staff from a...

Covid-19 (Taoiseach): Statements (4 Jun 2020)

Richard Boyd Barrett: I am sharing time with Deputy Barry. Black lives matter. Racism is not so much a virus as a poison deliberately administered. George Floyd was a victim of murderous, brutal and systemic racism that was deliberately stoked, encouraged and escalated by the billionaire Donald Trump, who uses racism deliberately, as even General James "Mad Dog" Mattis has admitted, to divide and rule, to...

Covid-19 (Taoiseach): Statements (4 Jun 2020)

Leo Varadkar: I answered a similar question on direct provision earlier. On the events we have seen take place in the United States, as I stated, we have witnessed a real absence of moral leadership from the top in the United States. We should have had words of unity, comfort and reconciliation, but we did not get them and that is absolutely wrong. I am sure that if those events had happened in this...

Covid-19 (Taoiseach): Statements (4 Jun 2020)

Richard Boyd Barrett: Perhaps a more accurate description of divide and rule tactics is the false claim the Taoiseach tried to make in order to boost his political ambitions by decrying the welfare cheats who cheat us all, rather than the bankers and property speculators who truly did cheat us all. Maybe the Taoiseach will address another group who are about to face an injustice at his hands and, indeed, have...

Covid-19 (Taoiseach): Statements (4 Jun 2020)

Róisín Shortall: As we start the slow move back to some kind of normality, and it is hoped we will be able to move on to phase 2 from Monday, it is important again to recognise the great efforts by the public in complying with the advice and in succeeding in not only flattening the curve but driving the virus out to a large extent. It is also important to acknowledge the heroic efforts by front-line workers,...

Covid-19 (Taoiseach): Statements (4 Jun 2020)

Leo Varadkar: I thank Deputy Kelly. On young people who were working part-time before the pandemic and lost their jobs as a consequence of the pandemic, the changes we are making tomorrow will ensure that those young people are no worse off than they were before the pandemic. The most important thing for those young people is not the pandemic unemployment payment, rather, it is enabling them to get back...

Covid-19 (Taoiseach): Statements (4 Jun 2020)

Eamon Ryan: I look forward to that announcement. A second example of looking forward in terms of mental health issues and wellbeing is our children. Their education is critical to their health and future wellbeing and development. I recently read an interesting article by Mr. John Boyle, Secretary General of the Irish National Teachers Organisation, INTO, who I know well. I knew him as a teacher in a...

Covid-19 (Taoiseach): Statements (4 Jun 2020)

Leo Varadkar: As the Deputy suggested, the Minister, Deputy McHugh, might be more up to date on this matter than I am. Assuming the virus continues to move in the right direction, primary and secondary schools will open for all children at the beginning of the school year, which is the end of August. What we have not yet worked out fully is the exact arrangements around how that will happen because...

Covid-19 (Taoiseach): Statements (4 Jun 2020)

Alan Kelly: I want to acknowledge the families who have lost loved ones in the last week and also workers. I have five questions for the Taoiseach, the first of which relates to workers. As of 26 May, more than 32% of Covid cases here have been healthcare workers, which is worrying. We are an outlier. ECDC analysis shows the infection rate among healthcare workers in the US is 3%; in China, it is 4%;...

Covid-19 (Taoiseach): Statements (4 Jun 2020)

Leo Varadkar: From the outset, I have always said that this is a living plan that can be accelerated if we are getting on top of and ahead of the virus. One thing we will stick with is the three-week intervals. They are in place for good epidemiological reasons. If one relaxes restrictions and the virus spreads, incubates and is tested for and so on, it will be at least two weeks before that shows up in...

Covid-19 (Taoiseach): Statements (4 Jun 2020)

Leo Varadkar: The Deputy has got it wrong. I am happy to set the record straight for her, but by getting it wrong, once again she is the one who has caused stress for a lot of people who are in receipt of the pandemic unemployment payment today. It was a payment introduced by a Government that I lead. It amounts to €350 per week, a flat rate and one of the most generous in Europe. I stand over...

Covid-19 (Taoiseach): Statements (4 Jun 2020)

Eamon Ryan: Our thoughts are with those who are ill in hospital or who have lost loved ones to this pandemic. We must continue to listen carefully and with respect to medical and health advice at all times. I have been reflecting back on this crisis and as I recall it at one of our first meetings with our best experts on the health issue they said that it was not going to be possible for us to suppress...

Covid-19 (Taoiseach): Statements (4 Jun 2020)

Mary Lou McDonald: I want to start by extending my heartfelt condolences and sympathies to those who have lost loved ones to Covid-19 in recent days. These are very difficult times for so many who are coping with profound grief. I also want to send good wishes to those who are sick with the virus and I wish them a full and speedy recovery. We are walking a long road and our battle with this virus and the...

Covid-19 (Taoiseach): Statements (4 Jun 2020)

Micheál Martin: In the past three months, this pandemic has claimed the lives of nearly 2,200 people on this island. It is with their families and friends that our first thoughts must be today and we must also remember the nearly 40 people who are in intensive care units today because of Covid-19. The progress of the disease in Ireland has been severe, and in some areas it has been worse than in most...

Gnó na Dála - Business of Dáil (4 Jun 2020)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: Before proceeding, the House must agree the arrangements for next week's proceedings of the Special Committee on Covid-19 Response. Those arrangements were notified in the report of the Business Committee for next week's meeting, which was circulated to Members this morning. I take it we can agree those arrangements as read. Is that agreed? Agreed.
