Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (13 May 2021)

Catherine Connolly: I have three speakers left. With their permission I will take the three of them and if the Tánaiste is happy to do it, he can reply to them together. There is not enough time to let everybody in. Deputy O'Rourke will get in for a few seconds but there will be no reply. I ask for the co-operation of Deputies O'Rourke, Boyd Barrett and Munster. I will give each Deputy 30 seconds to...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (13 May 2021)

Darren O'Rourke: I have a straight question for the Tánaiste. Taxi drivers are in need of a dedicated survival and recovery package that reflects the challenges in their industry. A number of measures have been introduced but taxi drivers have not been able to avail of the vast majority of them. They got a licence waiver of €150. There has been speculation and promises about a hardship fund to...

Catherine Connolly: I thank the Deputy for his brevity.

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (13 May 2021)

Richard Boyd Barrett: The Tánaiste mentioned the Israeli ambassador. I was at the Joint Committee on Foreign Affairs and Defence this morning and the ambassador came in with a brazen and really outrageous defence of the ethnic cleansing that Israel is engaging in against the people of Sheikh Jarrah in Jerusalem and the murder of innocent children in Gaza, where 17 children have been killed so far and more...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (13 May 2021)

Imelda Munster: There are concerns in the hospitality industry that a two-tier industry is emerging based on the reopening plan signed off by the Government. Hotels and guest houses will be able to operate indoor dining from the first day they open on 2 June. Restaurants and pubs that serve food and cafes will operate outdoor dining only from 7 June, with no date for indoor dining. The industry is also...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (13 May 2021)

Leo Varadkar: I met the representative groups of taxi drivers and I have met them individually. I appreciate the devastating impact the pandemic has had on them. As Deputy O'Rourke is aware, they are entitled to the pandemic unemployment payment and can still earn income while drawing that down. There is an enterprise grant when they come off the pandemic unemployment payment and I believe fees are...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (13 May 2021)

Leo Varadkar: I cannot give the Deputy a commitment right here right now but I will certainly speak to the Minister for Housing, Local Government and Heritage, Deputy Darragh O'Brien, about it. I am familiar with the issue with pyrite and mica. Pyrite occurred in my constituency and people were included in the assistance scheme. I have been in houses with mica in them in Donegal and I worked very hard...

Catherine Connolly: I ask all Deputies to comply with the time or their colleagues will not get in.

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (13 May 2021)

Kieran O'Donnell: I raise the issue of vaccination centres in Limerick. We currently have the Radisson vaccination centre. I got my Covid-19 vaccination in the Radisson centre this morning. I compliment the phenomenal work being done by the HSE and the volunteer staff. It was very efficient. We have a very successful roll-out in Limerick at the moment. There is speculation that the centre will be moved...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (13 May 2021)

Leo Varadkar: I remember when the vaccine programme started in January, the Deputy raised this issue and was of the view that the racecourse would be a better site for a vaccine centre than the Radisson Blu Hotel, because the latter is hard to access. I am advised that the vaccine centre will move out of the Radisson Blu Hotel, which will go back to being a hotel, and will be relocated to the Limerick...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (13 May 2021)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: I bring up the issue of the slaughter of Palestinians in Gaza. We need to accept the disparity between a huge military power like Israel and the Palestinian people. We have also had the de factoannexation and stealing of Palestinian land. We can only consider this a continuity of a plan for Israeli expansion. What will the Government propose in relation to our seat on the UN Security...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (13 May 2021)

Catherine Connolly: I will not continue interrupting. The time for everybody is up to one minute. If Deputies can be briefer, that is great. We are using up time on Deputies' colleagues.

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (13 May 2021)

Leo Varadkar: This matter was discussed earlier on. To recap, the Minister for Foreign Affairs, Deputy Coveney, has made a clear and strong statement on this matter on behalf of the Government. We will use our influence on the UN Security Council, which will meet on this quite soon. The Israeli ambassador has been called in for some very difficult discussions with the Minister. We intend to co-ordinate...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (13 May 2021)

Brian Stanley: On page 47 of the programme for Government, reference is made to improving public health, focusing on primary care. Dental services for medical card patients in the county I come from, County Laois, have collapsed. There is no service for adults in Laois. Only one dentist operates under the dental treatment services scheme, DTSS. I have a list that we rang around earlier in the week to...

Catherine Connolly: Thank you.

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (13 May 2021)

Brian Stanley: Very briefly, one sentence. There is no dental scheme for primary school children. I raised this with the Tánaiste seven years ago when he was Minister for Health.

Catherine Connolly: We are over time. I thank the Deputy. I call the Tánaiste.

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (13 May 2021)

Brian Stanley: They are in secondary school and are 14 years of age before they are seen. It is third world country stuff. I appeal to the Tánaiste to bring this to the attention of the Minister for Health and to try to get it dealt with.

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (13 May 2021)

Catherine Connolly: We have tried a new system. It is in place until July. Many Deputies will not get in today now. They will have to take it up with the Ceann Comhairle and his office.

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (13 May 2021)

Leo Varadkar: There is a dispute under way between dentists and the HSE and the Department of Health in relation to the DTSS. That is causing a break of services in some parts of the country, including, I understand, County Laois. We are keen to have that issue resolved as soon as possible and have the DTSS restored. I will inform the Minister, Deputy Stephen Donnelly, that the Deputy has raised...
