Estimates for Public Services 2020 (Resumed) (28 May 2020)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: Deputy Gould has asked if the Minister will make some reference to his question about Debenhams workers.

Estimates for Public Services 2020 (Resumed) (28 May 2020)

Regina Doherty: I beg the Deputy's pardon. I had not seen it in my notes. We have worked very hard in recent months to work with the Debenhams workers to support them in seeing what is available from our offices. The workers can, of course, all avail of the Covid-19 pandemic unemployment payment right now for as long as it exists. As I have already said, that will be well after the original end date of...

Estimates for Public Services 2020 (Resumed) (28 May 2020)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: I am anxious to be helpful to Deputies, and especially to new Deputies.

Members on all sides of the House would need to have a bit of regard to the traditional provisions we make...

Estimates for Public Services 2020 (Resumed) (28 May 2020)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: -----I salute you for doing so. The problem is that if we had gone through each Deputy one by one, allowing them to ask and get answers to their questions, Deputy Gould would not have got to ask any question at all. That is the problem. It is just a matter of organising your time. That is not-----

Estimates for Public Services 2020 (Resumed) (28 May 2020)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: Well, okay. The Deputy's party is strongly and very ably represented on all the committees of the House. If the system is to be changed, I am quite happy to have it changed. I have to operate the system as it is until such time as the change is made. I call Deputy Ged Nash, who has eight minutes should he require it.

Estimates for Public Services 2020 (Resumed) (28 May 2020)

Gerald Nash: I thank the Ceann Comhairle. The Minister looks like she is about to deliver the votes of the Swedish Eurovision jury. I hope Louth gets douze pointswhen she responds. Earlier, the Minister raised the anomaly in the temporary wage subsidy scheme as it relates to women who are returning to work having spent time on maternity leave. I and my Labour Party colleagues are very pleased that this...
