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

Kieran O'Donnell: I have several quick questions for the Minister. With regard to Shannon Airport, I wrote to the CEO of Aer Lingus in the past week as there is a particular point in regard to cabin crew at Shannon who have been temporarily laid off. I have a copy of a letter sent to workers today which is very upsetting for them in that they are being allowed to stay on the wage subsidy scheme but they are...

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

Shane Ross: I am not going to give the Deputy a pledge about going to Aer Lingus as I cannot do that. What I will do is address the matter with it and see what its interpretation of the situation is, and then take it from there. The second question was about the task force for Shannon Airport. I think we can probably give the Deputy that promise.

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

Shane Ross: I thank the Deputies for their contributions. Some of their questions will be very ably and appropriately addressed by the task force. That is one of the reasons it has been set up. It will voice the views of some of those whose voices are very often not heard as loudly as those of others. I take the Deputies' point on union involvement. It is a very appropriate suggestion because the...

Emer Higgins: As the Minister is aware, at this time of year, his Department would usually be gearing up to mark national bike week. It has been postponed as a result of Covid-19. In fact, today is World Bicycle Day. As such, I hope the Minister will indulge me by answering a quick question on cycling before I move to my question on air travel.

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

Emer Higgins: We are all changing our lifestyles as a result of the pandemic. One of the positive changes is the number of people who have taken up cycling. More than half a million adults are cycling at least once a week during this crisis compared with 220,000 at this time last year. Given the move to reduce carbon emissions and the fact that capacity on public transport services will be impacted by...

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

Maurice Quinlivan: I am going to make a short contribution and my colleague, Deputy Wynne, will then come in with a contribution. I have also some questions, and the Minister might answer them after Deputy Wynne speaks, if that is okay with the Minister. I welcome the task force the Minister announced. It is a good move forward. As my colleague, Deputy O'Rourke, said, we must ensure that the unions are...

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

Violet Wynne: I have been inundated with concerns from constituents in Clare over the uncertainty that Shannon Airport faces and the associated implications for jobs right across our region in future. Jobs in the airport and nearby industrial estates are at risk, as are jobs in the tourism sector in Clare and across the mid-west. We know Shannon Airport acts as a vital gateway for tourism and business...

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

Shane Ross: I do not think there were any sinister reasons for that. I think there were different opinions about that. The advice was taken. It was the subject of some debate, but certainly there was never any intention, that I know of, to ignore it. My impression was that it was always going to actually come into existence, but the implementation of it took a certain amount of time for technical...

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

Darren O'Rourke: It was stated at the committee yesterday that the advice from NPHET was not adhered to or was not taken on board at that time anyway. We were also told yesterday the Minister for Health is currently examining the possibility of a mandatory 14-day period of self-isolation. This is causing considerable confusion. The Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport referred to the industry as...
