Health (Covid-19): Statements (2 Apr 2020)

Marc MacSharry: I offer my condolences to all the families who have lost a loved one in recent times and I pay tribute to all our frontline workers, predominantly in the healthcare area but also those manning our supermarkets and all essential services throughout the country. They are heroes all. I congratulate the Minister for Health and the Government on their work so far, and the efforts they and all...

Health (Covid-19): Statements (2 Apr 2020)

Stephen Donnelly: I am sharing time with Deputy MacSharry. I begin by expressing my deepest sympathies with the families and friends of those who have passed away already because of Covid-19. Losing the people we love is always difficult but losing them in these circumstances, where there are restrictions on hospital visits, on funerals and on the ability of people to come together to help each other through...

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: I ask Members to bear in mind that, as I stated, the House will either agree to this proposal or we will all go home.

Health (Covid-19): Statements (2 Apr 2020)

Health (Covid-19): Statements (2 Apr 2020)

Simon Harris: Ordinarily, I welcome any opportunity to update the House but today I cannot do so. We are living in extraordinary times and what we ordinarily do is no longer a choice we can freely make. On this day, World Autism Day, I think in particular of those who most depend on routine in their lives now finding a way to cope with their families in what are very strange and difficult days as they...

An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (2 Apr 2020)

Thomas Pringle: I agree that we should meet next Thursday. It is vitally important. There are workplaces that are not essential but the Dáil is very necessary. It needs to be in place to hold the Government to account and to make Government accountable for its actions. Whether that is the part-time or caretaker Government that we have now or a new Government, the Dáil has to meet. That should...

An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (2 Apr 2020)

Matt Shanahan: I also support the business of the Dáil to continue. It is very important that we should remember we are asking front-line health people to go in to work in the most arduous of circumstances to continue their duty. I do not think it is fair that any Member of this House should be cocooning at home. People need to remember that Teachta Dála means "messenger of the people". We...

An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (2 Apr 2020)

Verona Murphy: I concur with all of my colleagues on the aforementioned in that we do have to have accountability. There are many issues on which we would like answers through a question and answer session. Yesterday I partook in a HSE briefing that lasted for two hours. In the first 45 minutes, only two Deputies had asked questions. It is not acceptable and I would prefer to see the Dáil sitting,...

An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (2 Apr 2020)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: I should point out, perhaps mostly for the benefit of new Deputies, that when it comes to a possible vote on the Order of Business, what we are talking about here is a situation in which if the proposal before the House is not agreed then there would be no business at all transacted today. The only matter really that falls to be decided is the date of the next sitting, which is proposed for...

An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (2 Apr 2020)

Richard Boyd Barrett: Is there an amendment proposed?

An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (2 Apr 2020)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: There is no amended proposal.

An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (2 Apr 2020)

Simon Harris: First, I acknowledge the huge cross-party and cross-grouping support, interest and work in respect of this issue. I think there are ten groupings in this House between parties and groupings of Independents. The co-operation, collaboration and support from each and every one of those groupings is at the level that I think the Irish people would expect. The Irish people are not expecting us...

An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (2 Apr 2020)

Mick Barry: In private.

An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (2 Apr 2020)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: Let the Minister answer.

An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (2 Apr 2020)

Simon Harris: Officials who are working extraordinarily hard seven days a week and who have not seen their families in weeks are working and making themselves available, as they want to and should, to brief Deputies and keep them up to date. They are doing a superb job and they deserve our support. In addition to that, myself and the Taoiseach will again brief leaders of all groupings in this House today...

An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (2 Apr 2020)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: Is the proposal agreed?
