An Bille um Bearta Éigeandála ar mhaithe le Leas an Phobail (Covid-19), 2020: An Dara Céim (Atógáil) - Emergency Measures in the Public Interest (Covid-19) Bill 2020: Second Stage (Resumed) (26 Mar 2020)

Charles Flanagan: I thank the Acting Chair for her assistance and apologise to Deputies if there is a lack of clarity on my part. My contribution will relate to Parts 4 and 5, which will amend the Health Acts that make reference to health and social care professions, as well as the Mental Health Act 2001. In this emergency, additional healthcare staff will be required to cope with staff illness and an...

Debate adjourned.

Gnó na Dála - Business of Dáil (26 Mar 2020)

Catherine Connolly: That concludes this session. Deputy Burke wishes to make an announcement regarding the Order of Business.

Gnó na Dála - Business of Dáil (26 Mar 2020)

Peter Burke: It is proposed, notwithstanding the order of the Dáil of this day, that the proceedings on Second Stage of the Emergency Measures in the Public Interest (Covid-19) Bill 2020 shall, if not previously concluded, be brought to a conclusion after six hours and any division demanded on the conclusion of Second Stage shall be taken immediately. Speeches on Second Stage shall be in the...

Gnó na Dála - Business of Dáil (26 Mar 2020)

Róisín Shortall: On a point of order, there was a lengthy discussion in the Business Committee this morning about the order for today. Why have we had no notice about this new change? It is very unsatisfactory. I appreciate that people are under pressure, but umpteen changes are now proposed by the Government. That has upset the rhythm of the day and Members' preparedness for the debate.

Gnó na Dála - Business of Dáil (26 Mar 2020)

Catherine Connolly: I am informed that the changes relate to providing a slot for the social welfare brief, so Members will be able to ask questions. That is my information at this point. Perhaps, subject to clarification, we can return to that point. Deputy Flanagan, you are here to take health.

Gnó na Dála - Business of Dáil (26 Mar 2020)

Charles Flanagan: I can let matters stand for the moment if Members have other contributions to make.

Gnó na Dála - Business of Dáil (26 Mar 2020)

Catherine Connolly: I am just clarifying matters. We have finished with regard to finance and we are moving on as agreed. I thought the next section is on housing but it is health.

Gnó na Dála - Business of Dáil (26 Mar 2020)

Róisín Shortall: That is what was agreed, but the new order has been introduced by the Deputy. It is very hard to understand the reason for that. Will it be statements?

Gnó na Dála - Business of Dáil (26 Mar 2020)

Charles Flanagan: For the information of Members, I have an opening statement on a series of amendments with particular reference to health and social care professionals.

Gnó na Dála - Business of Dáil (26 Mar 2020)

Róisín Shortall: I am sorry, we are at cross purposes. We expected health to be the second slot. A new section is being proposed now. I do not know why that was not brought to us at the Business Committee this morning or why we were not consulted about it. It had not been the plan to take social protection. Where has that come from? Why was the Business Committee not involved in that decision?

Gnó na Dála - Business of Dáil (26 Mar 2020)

Catherine Connolly: You are correct, Deputy Shortall, that it was not mentioned this morning. I understand that the Minister for Finance was to deal with finance and social protection and that did not happen, so an extra slot is being included for social protection. It is extra time. Is that agreed? Agreed.

Gnó na Dála - Business of Dáil (26 Mar 2020)

Louise O'Reilly: We are in agreement on that, which is fine, but can we also secure an agreement that there will not be any further changes without a meeting of the Business Committee, if that is in order?

An Bille um Bearta Éigeandála ar mhaithe le Leas an Phobail (Covid-19), 2020: An Dara Céim - Emergency Measures in the Public Interest (Covid-19) Bill 2020: Second Stage (26 Mar 2020)

Marian Harkin: In his contribution, the Minister, Deputy Donohoe, spoke of global and European solidarity. This word, "solidarity", can help us to defeat this crisis. If we can put it into action, we will come out of this a better society than that which went into it. I am very pleased to see that Ireland is part of a group of countries seeking a so-called coronabond. As Members will remember, some time...

An Bille um Bearta Éigeandála ar mhaithe le Leas an Phobail (Covid-19), 2020: An Dara Céim - Emergency Measures in the Public Interest (Covid-19) Bill 2020: Second Stage (26 Mar 2020)

Richard O'Donoghue: I offer my sympathies to the families of people who have lost their lives due to Covid-19 and other illnesses, and to the families and friends who could not attend funerals to show their respects due to the health restrictions in place. I have questions for the Minister about payments, which have been increased from €203 to €350, which I welcome. I get questions every day from...

An Bille um Bearta Éigeandála ar mhaithe le Leas an Phobail (Covid-19), 2020: An Dara Céim - Emergency Measures in the Public Interest (Covid-19) Bill 2020: Second Stage (26 Mar 2020)

Peadar Tóibín: I recognise that the Government is working around the clock and is under massive pressure. I also recognise that this is a gargantuan task and there is little or no rule book on decision making for the Government to follow at this time. However, while we should all put on the green jersey, that does not mean that the Opposition should delete scrutiny. Oversight of the Government's actions...

Paul Murphy: Everything possible has to be done to allow workers to effectively socially distance. We need to ensure workers do not have a situation where they are laid off in this crisis not to be taken on again in the future or to be taken on at lower pay rates and worse conditions. We need to ensure all workers are guaranteed a continuation of their jobs and employment rights. We must ensure all...

Róisín Shortall: The Social Democrats very much welcome the proposals in respect of wage replacement and the co-operative approach that has been shown in terms of the proposals brought forward by the Irish Congress of Trade Unions and IBEC. We know from all of the academic advice on this and the experience in other European countries that this is the right thing to do and I commend the Minister on that....

Gerald Nash: I welcome the opportunity to speak on this Covid-19 emergency Bill on behalf of the Labour Party. It is fair to say that nobody could have predicted this pandemic but we can always predict the response of the Irish people when faced with a crisis of any description. It is only through shared solidarity through community and collective action and a selfless concern for others that we can...
