Pay for Student Nurses and Midwives: Motion [Private Members] (20 Jan 2021)

Kathleen Funchion: I urge all Deputies in the Chamber to support the motion and, for once, to put their money where their mouths are. Student nurses and midwives, along with everyone else who works in the health services, do not want us standing up in the Chamber clapping. That is actually an insult to them. It is patronising and demeaning. What they actually want is fairness and respect. The situation...

Pay for Student Nurses and Midwives: Motion [Private Members] (20 Jan 2021)

Matt Carthy: The strength of our response to Covid-19 has been the concept of solidarity. It is a concept we have seen in every community throughout the country. However, it is a concept that appears alien to Government. We are in a situation now where Deputy David Cullinane has to bring a motion before the House. It is the second motion relating to the demand, request and plea that student nurses...

Pay for Student Nurses and Midwives: Motion [Private Members] (20 Jan 2021)

Mark Ward: It is time now to pay student nurses and midwives. A payment of €100 is an absolute insult to the hard work put in by student nurses on the front line. Student nurses and midwives did not go into hiding when they were called upon. They have put themselves at daily risk for the common good. They have gone above and beyond what they were asked to do. These students were working,...

Pay for Student Nurses and Midwives: Motion [Private Members] (20 Jan 2021)

David Cullinane: I move: "That Dáil Éireann: notes that: — the Government has commissioned two reviews of the pay of student nurses and midwives; — the first review on pay for placements during the Covid-19 pandemic was completed and its main recommendations were published on Raidió Teilifís Éireann (RTÉ) before the report itself was published or issued to...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Standards in Public Office Commission (14 Jan 2021)

Anne Rabbitte: I thank Deputy Richmond for sharing the knowledge and the depth of understanding he has on this organisation. While my answer deals with electoral law, the issue of campaigning bodies is something I will bring back to the Minister. I will conclude by reading the Minister's remarks into the record. I again thank the Deputy for raising this important issue. As already indicated, our...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Maternity Services (14 Jan 2021)

Anne Rabbitte: I will take on board exactly what Deputy Hourigan has requested here this evening. I will articulate it to the Minister, Deputy Donnelly. Perhaps I could facilitate a meeting between Deputy Hourigan, the Minister and our new Secretary General, acting in the Department of Health, who has come from the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform and who would have a really good understanding...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Standards in Public Office Commission (14 Jan 2021)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: Our next Topical Issues matter is the relocation of Leave.EU from the UK and the regulation of its activities as per Irish electoral law.

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Standards in Public Office Commission (14 Jan 2021)

Neale Richmond: I greatly appreciate the opportunity to raise this extremely serious issue with the Minister of State, Deputy Rabbitte and the Minister. When reports came out that Leave.EU had relocated or temporarily registered its location from Bristol to Waterford many people met the news with a sense of wry irony that an organisation that has spent the past number of years campaigning to leave the EU is...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Standards in Public Office Commission (14 Jan 2021)

Anne Rabbitte: I thank Deputy Richmond for raising this question. I hope my answer addresses the question the Deputy has asked. I am here to represent the Minister, Deputy Darragh O'Brien. As Members of the House will be aware, the Electoral Act 1997, as amended, provides the statutory framework for dealing with political donations and sets out the regulatory regime covering a wide range of...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Standards in Public Office Commission (14 Jan 2021)

Neale Richmond: I thank the Minister of State for the full and accurate reply, which certainly addressed some of my concerns. I appreciate that some of my concerns and the area I ask about do not fall under the remit of the Minister to whom this matter has been put forward. Some interesting points that will become very relevant in this regard have been made by the Minister on the role of corporate...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Maternity Services (14 Jan 2021)

Neasa Hourigan: I wish to raise an issue today with the Department of Health and its Minister. While I acknowledge they are well aware of the issue, it is so important that it is worth highlighting again. My constituency of Dublin Central is home to the Rotunda Hospital, which is the busiest maternity hospital in Europe. In 2019, more than 8,000 babies were delivered in hospital. In the same year, more...
