Family Support Services

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Family Support Services (17 May 2022)

Claire Kerrane: 69. To ask the Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection when she will publish her response to the recommendations of the child maintenance review group; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [24489/22]

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Family Support Services (17 May 2022)

Claire Kerrane: I want to ask the Minister about the report that has, I hope, been finalised by the child maintenance review group. I understand she was to receive that report at Easter. Will she outline when she will publish it?

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Family Support Services (17 May 2022)

Heather Humphreys: I thank the Deputy for raising this matter. Under family law, parents and certain categories of guardians or those acting in the place of parents are obliged to maintain their children. In cases where the family unit has broken down, these obligations continue to apply. Child maintenance arrangements can be agreed directly between the parties themselves, with the assistance of their...

National Maternity Services: Motion [Private Members] (17 May 2022)

Paul Donnelly: Everyone wants to see the building of the new national maternity hospital but it has been overshadowed by the Government's failure to listen to the concerns of so many people inside and outside this Chamber. The simple fact is that a national maternity hospital built by the State should, and must, be built on land solely owned by the State. Long-term leasing is not the same as full...

National Maternity Services: Motion [Private Members] (17 May 2022)

Kathleen Funchion: I thank my colleague, Deputy Cullinane, for bringing forward the motion. This is the conclusion of the debate. We know that there are very serious concerns. These are not just the concerns of those of us in the Opposition, but of a great many women throughout the country. Unfortunately, these concerns arise from the history of the State's treatment of women. We have had several...

National Maternity Services: Motion [Private Members] (17 May 2022)

Joan Collins: I thank Sinn Féin for introducing this Private Members' motion. I absolutely support it and agree with what it states. Unfortunately, however, it is irrelevant, just like the three other motions on the issue that have been moved in the Chamber, by the Social Democrats, Deputy Connolly and me, none of which was opposed by the Government. This tactic is being used increasingly by the...

National Maternity Services: Motion [Private Members] (17 May 2022)

Colm Burke: I am sharing time with the Minister of State, Deputy Feighan. As someone who comes from a legal background, having spent more than 25 years dealing with leasehold and freehold titles, I am very much aware of the significance of a 299-year lease. Only one witness who appeared before the health committee gave evidence on behalf of the opponents of this project, and he admitted he was not a...

National Maternity Services: Motion [Private Members] (17 May 2022)

Frank Feighan: I fully appreciate the importance of this issue and the not insignificant concerns raised by many over recent weeks and months, and I am grateful for the opportunity to address some of those concerns. As the Minister for Health noted, we are all trying to achieve the same goal, which is best described by the vision of the national maternity strategy, whereby women and babies will have access...

National Maternity Services: Motion [Private Members] (17 May 2022)

Richard O'Donoghue: Maternity services have fallen short when it has come to caring for the women of this country, and will fall short for children who will be born here. I know many of the HIQA reports on our maternity hospitals are outdated. It shows how bad the infrastructure is. Is there another agenda here? Why would somebody go against this project? My duty of care is to the mothers and generations of...

National Maternity Services: Motion [Private Members] (17 May 2022)

Mattie McGrath: I am glad to be able to speak on this motion. We see the waiting lists across every walk of society but people are waiting 12 months for gynaecological services. Waiting lists have increase by 67% since March 2015. We see the furore over this site and the way it has exploded and mushroomed and there is not a mention of the children's hospital. Tá sé caillte. It is in a major...

National Maternity Services: Motion [Private Members] (17 May 2022)

Catherine Connolly: I thank Sinn Féin once again for giving us the opportunity by tabling this motion. With regard to what Deputy Michael Healy-Rae said, I do not think I want to be God but if I was arrogant enough to go down that road, I would choose to be a goddess, maybe, and do it completely differently. With regard to this matter, words fail me in relation to the hypocrisy. I am on record for...

National Maternity Services: Motion [Private Members] (17 May 2022)

David Cullinane: Are you supporting our motion?

National Maternity Services: Motion [Private Members] (17 May 2022)

Peadar Tóibín: People are asking that clinically inappropriate decisions would be made in hospitals.

National Maternity Services: Motion [Private Members] (17 May 2022)

David Cullinane: Are you supporting our motion?

National Maternity Services: Motion [Private Members] (17 May 2022)

Peadar Tóibín: As a State, we need to make sure the highest standard of science and medical knowledge is at the heart of the decisions we make. The truth of the matter is the doctors and healthcare professionals I have spoken to are really frustrated with the language that has been used about their ability to provide services. If one goes to anybody in the National Maternity Hospital, Holles Street or St....

National Maternity Services: Motion [Private Members] (17 May 2022)

David Cullinane: Are you supporting our motion? You never said.

National Maternity Services: Motion [Private Members] (17 May 2022)

Peadar Tóibín: I cannot.

National Maternity Services: Motion [Private Members] (17 May 2022)

Michael Collins: The National Maternity Hospital at Holles Street is overcrowded. We need a new hospital built to modern specifications. Let us get on with it and stop blaming the nuns for everything. The nuns are easy targets for populist left politicians to attack because they know the nuns do not have expensive public relations teams and are not in the business of doing media. It is important to point...

National Maternity Services: Motion [Private Members] (17 May 2022)

Michael Healy-Rae: If there are nuns listening, I would like to say something they have not heard in this Chamber until perhaps right now. Thank you very much. Nobody has said thank you, either in government, out of government or in opposition. All everybody has done is try to pick fault and find everything possible wrong with this because of this anti-religion agenda in Ireland at present. It is absolutely...
