Verona Murphy: Page 75 of the programme for Government commits to: Examine options for a pension solution for carers the majority of whom are women, particularly those of incapacitated children in recognition of the enormous value of the work carried out by them. They do Trojan work and make great sacrifices. However, many carers cannot afford to set money aside for a pension fund. I welcome the fact...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (19 Nov 2020)

Leo Varadkar: We want to find a pension solution for carers. Everyone in this House knows the value of the work carers do and we want to make sure they have a pension in their retirement. We appreciate there are many different types of carers: there are family carers, people who care for people who are not members of their family, carers who are in receipt of carer's allowance and carers who are not in...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (19 Nov 2020)

Catherine Connolly: Three weeks tomorrow, the Government took possession of the report from the independent Commission of Inquiry Into Mother and Baby Homes. Three weeks later, we see no sight of it. The legislation was rushed through the Dáil, much to the dismay of all of us in the Opposition. The primary reason given for that was that there would be no delay in the publication of the report. Cá...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (19 Nov 2020)

Imelda Munster: I raise yet again the issue of funding for the port access northern cross route for Drogheda. Numerous applications have gone in over the years and all have been turned down by the Government. We have been waiting for 15 years on funding for the northern cross route. The northern cross route is an integral part of the northern environs plan, which is a plan to see the construction of 7,000...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (19 Nov 2020)

Leo Varadkar: Denmark is a fabulous and well-run country and has great public services. However, it does have a significantly higher incidence of the virus than Ireland does now. We need to bear that in mind. Notwithstanding the numbers in recent days plateauing rather than continuing to fall, we are the third lowest now in Europe. Only Iceland and Finland have a lower incidence of the virus than we...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (19 Nov 2020)

Bríd Smith: I am happy to pass on the details. I did pass on information to the Tánaiste about the forgotten families. It was a week or two ago but I have heard nothing back.

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (19 Nov 2020)

Leo Varadkar: I have received what Deputy Smith sent me relating to the forgotten families. I am engaging with the Minister for Education, Deputy Foley, to see if we can find a solution. I believe it is important for children who cannot attend school for health reasons to be provided for in some way, perhaps through an online access system or something like that. I did receive that and I am going to...

Tribute to Brian McNamara (19 Nov 2020)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: Before proceeding to Questions on Promised Legislation, I think it is appropriate that the House would acknowledge the recent retirement of Brian McNamara, the Oireachtas chef. He has left us after 40 years of service in our restaurants. Members, staff and visitors have benefited from Brian's skills and dedication in the Oireachtas kitchen. Brian came to us from the old Hibernian Hotel....

The Ceann Comhairle might clarify to the House the position in respect of the switching of ministerial questions and the appropriateness of doing that without consultation with Members of the Opposition.
