Covid-19 (Transport, Tourism and Sport): Statements (3 Jun 2020)

Darren O'Rourke: Is the Minister indicating that we will move to a stage when the 14-day period of self-isolation will be mandatory? Is that something the Government is planning to implement?

Covid-19 (Transport, Tourism and Sport): Statements (3 Jun 2020)

Shane Ross: The intention is to do that.

Covid-19 (Transport, Tourism and Sport): Statements (3 Jun 2020)

Darren O'Rourke: Okay. I thank the Minister. One of the public criticisms of the 14-day period of self-isolation is that somebody can come out of the airport and hop onto a bus to their final destination with the possible transmission of infection. It is exacerbated by the lack of face coverings on public transport. Anybody using public transport will be aware of that. Yesterday at the Covid-19...

Covid-19 (Transport, Tourism and Sport): Statements (3 Jun 2020)

Shane Ross: I will not insist because I cannot, obviously, but I can make some make recommendations about that to the Cabinet. I think that issue is being addressed. At the moment it is not mandatory but voluntary. If NPHET suggests that change, I have no doubt I will accept its recommendation, but it is a matter for it. If it is a public health issue and if it will save lives, I will certainly...

Covid-19 (Transport, Tourism and Sport): Statements (3 Jun 2020)

Jennifer Murnane O'Connor: I received a query today from a constituent who has booked over 20 flights for a family event at the end of this week. The family does not live within 5 km or 20 km of the airport. It is not an essential trip. The family has not been offered a voucher or refund because the flight has not been cancelled. What are we doing for customers? Yesterday, the Covid-19 committee was told that no...

Covid-19 (Transport, Tourism and Sport): Statements (3 Jun 2020)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: The Minister might respond in writing to Deputies because we do not have time for answers. Deputy Darren O'Rourke is sharing time with Deputies Maurice Quinlivan and Violet-Anne Wynne.

Covid-19 (Transport, Tourism and Sport): Statements (3 Jun 2020)

Darren O'Rourke: I will take seven minutes and Deputies Quinlivan and Wynne will take four minutes each. I welcome the announcement of the establishment of a task force for aviation recovery. It is very much needed and I ask that it be established and get through its work as quickly as possible. I recommend and encourage the Minister to include the unions representing workers, including Fórsa, SIPTU...

Covid-19 (Transport, Tourism and Sport): Statements (3 Jun 2020)

Cathal Crowe: I thank the Business Committee for facilitating this session, which I requested. Aviation is the sector most exposed to the Covid pandemic. It has been utterly ravaged. It took the sector 18 months to recover from the 9/11 attacks and it is now anticipated that it could take three to five years for the sector to recover from the current health and economic crises. For this reason, I...

Covid-19 (Transport, Tourism and Sport): Statements (3 Jun 2020)

Niall Collins: I raised the issue of Shannon Airport with the Minister in the House approximately three weeks ago. Others have raised it in the intervening period. I agree that the establishment of a task force at this late stage will only serve to drag out the process. What is the Minister or his departmental officials doing? What is it that they do not know that a task force can tell them? We know...

Covid-19 (Transport, Tourism and Sport): Statements (3 Jun 2020)

Marc MacSharry: With the permission of the Ceann Comhairle and of the Minister, as on the previous occasion, could my questions be logged and responded to in writing because it will save time and use our time here most efficiently? It is certainly timely that we are having this debate. As we know, aviation is critical to the economy. In some reports, Dublin Airport and our airports generally are...

Covid-19 (Transport, Tourism and Sport): Statements (3 Jun 2020)

Shane Ross: I thank the Ceann Comhairle for the opportunity to address the House on the aviation sector. While there are a number of structures through which my Department engages with industry stakeholders on a collective basis, I am acutely conscious that today's unprecedented challenges require that all options be considered and that we be open to novel approaches. For that reason, I am proposing to...

Covid-19 (Foreign Affairs and Trade): Statements (3 Jun 2020)

Catherine Connolly: Several questions were raised there. There is a minute and a half.

Covid-19 (Foreign Affairs and Trade): Statements (3 Jun 2020)

Simon Coveney: The state aid issue is a probing and good question in terms of how states use new flexibility around state aid. Some countries have far more available resources than others to spend in the absence of strict state aid rules. Therefore, they could potentially create competitive advantage within the Single Market. That is a concern and something we need to watch closely. I can give Deputy...

Covid-19 (Foreign Affairs and Trade): Statements (3 Jun 2020)

Catherine Connolly: That concludes the statement by the Tánaiste and Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade in respect of the Covid-19 crisis, especially in respect of travel and passports, and questions and answers. Sorry for cutting across you, Tánaiste.

Sitting suspended at 6.58 p.m. and resumed at 7.18 p.m.

Covid-19 (Foreign Affairs and Trade): Statements (3 Jun 2020)

Simon Coveney: The arrangement regarding Shannon Airport has been in place for decades between both countries. It operates to a pretty clear protocol in terms of the conditions of the use of the airport. The Government does not have any proposals to change that. Regarding racism, the Taoiseach made comments yesterday and I made comments today. We will have an opportunity to have what I hope will be...

Covid-19 (Foreign Affairs and Trade): Statements (3 Jun 2020)

Marian Harkin: The unspeakable murder of George Floyd has, I think, shocked us but it must not shock us into silence because racism unchallenged is racism encouraged. We as a State have to make sure that our words, our public statements, challenge and condemn racism and all who perpetrate it. Otherwise, our silence is encouragement. While I recognise the matter is delicate and there can be a fine line,...
