Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (23 Jun 2022)

Pearse Doherty: Léiríonn tuarascáil an Ombudsman teip iomlán an Rialtais áiteanna scoileanna a chur ar fáil do pháistí agus do leanaí a bhfuil riachtanais speisialta acu. Tá gníomh éigeandála de dhíth anois le cinntiú go mbeidh áit scoile ag gach páiste sa Stát i mí Mheán Fómhair. The Ombudsman for...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (23 Jun 2022)

Leo Varadkar: I thank the Deputy for raising this important issue, which I know is causing a lot of angst and worry to families throughout the State, including in my constituency of Dublin West. I have read the Ombudsman's report. The Government accepts the criticisms being made. We are committed to ensuring that every single child with special educational needs has access to education. One child who...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (23 Jun 2022)

Pearse Doherty: I thank the Tánaiste for his response. I am surprised by his commentary that there are no plans for emergency legislation. This highlights the fact the members of the Government are not speaking to each other. The Minister of State, Deputy Madigan, is on the record as saying she has spoken to the Attorney General in the context of emergency legislation. We need emergency legislation....

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (23 Jun 2022)

Leo Varadkar: I thank the Deputy. Again, I welcome the offer of co-operation should special or emergency legislation be needed. We will probably be able to find places for the 100 children or so without the need for legislation but if it is required to do it then it should be done. I know from my engagement with the NCSE and the Minister of State, Deputy Madigan, that they have revised the way they...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Foreign Policy (23 Jun 2022)

Gino Kenny: The Polish people and Europe in general have shown amazing solidarity with Ukrainians who are fleeing their own country in the face of absolute barbarity by the Russian Federation. I am aware that there is an ongoing debate in Poland, which will be debated in the Polish Parliament as of today, in respect of the lifting of the ban on abortions, not only for Polish women but for anybody...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Foreign Policy (23 Jun 2022)

Simon Coveney: I first thank the Deputy for raising this issue and, in particular, for the way in which he done so because he has been sensitive to the issue here. I have been to Warsaw and have visited the largest Ukrainian refugee hub, if one wants to call it that, just outside Warsaw. There are about 7,000 Ukrainian people there. Approximately 2,000 come and go every day. It is just extraordinary...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Foreign Policy (23 Jun 2022)

Question No. 101 answered with Question No. 99.

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Middle East (23 Jun 2022)

Middle East

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Middle East (23 Jun 2022)

John Brady: 102. To ask the Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade if he will address the concerns that exist in relation to the recent signing of a trilateral memorandum of understanding relating to the export of natural gas from Israel and Egypt to the European Union given Israel’s repeated breaches of international law; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [32923/22]

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Middle East (23 Jun 2022)

John Brady: I ask the Minister for his response and that of the Government to the announcement in the past week from Commission President Ursula Von der Leyen that a trilateral agreement has been reached between the EU, Israel and Egypt to pipe gas from the occupied territories and from Israel to Europe, which contravenes both UN policy and EU policy. I seek the Minister's response to this announcement.

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Middle East (23 Jun 2022)

Simon Coveney: I thank the Deputy for this question and am glad to be able to put a number of things on the record in respect of this agreement. A trilateral memorandum of understanding with Israel and Egypt on co-operation relating to trade, transport and the export of natural gas to the European Union was signed by the European Commission on 15 June in Cairo. Ireland supports the agreement, which is...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Middle East (23 Jun 2022)

John Brady: I thank the Minister for his reply. On 24 February, we saw Russia illegally breach international law with its brutal invasion of Ukraine. In 2014 we saw Russia annex the Crimea, which again was a grave breach of international law. There is a grave hypocrisy here, however, because the international reaction to the illegal invasion by Russia has seen sanctions being immediately imposed on...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Middle East (23 Jun 2022)

Simon Coveney: As I said in my response to the Deputy, this agreement does make a distinction between occupied territory and Israel proper, for want of a better term. That is appropriate. As I said my reply, the legal framework underpinning the EU-Israel partnership is provided by the EU-Israel Association Agreement, which has been in force since 2000. Unlike Russia, Israel is part of the European...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Middle East (23 Jun 2022)

John Brady: The Minister said recently that one of the greatest injustices in the world today is the occupation of Palestinian lands and the continued expansion of settlements. I completely agree with the Minister. Unfortunately, those words mean nothing when we are prepared to support an agreement such as this. We are rewarding the brutal oppressor of Palestinian people, the continued illegal...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Passport Services (23 Jun 2022)

Brendan Griffin: I acknowledge the efforts of my staff and of all parliamentary staff on all sides of the Houses. It has been very stressful for them and they have borne the brunt at the front line in hearing the stories and taking that stress on themselves to get the issues resolved. If the Minister is considering moving the Cork passport office, he is more than welcome to move it to Kerry, if he so...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Passport Services (23 Jun 2022)

Éamon Ó Cuív: Looking at systems, the vast majority of people, as the Minister rightly points out, do not have to come to us. When a system is operating like that, one always looks for the part of the system that is failing and where the logjams are occurring. I think most of us would say that an awful lot of the logjams relate to children. It seems to me basic, therefore, that if that is correct, a...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Passport Services (23 Jun 2022)

Thomas Gould: The number of passport applications coming in from the North just goes to show the need for a passport office in the Six Counties. I ask the Minister, the Department and the Government to look at that need. As for the Minister's comments about a new passport office in Cork, I suggest that if it is not to be in the city centre, it be on the northside. The reason for that is that a study...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Passport Services (23 Jun 2022)

Aindrias Moynihan: I thank the Minister for checking out the question about the photograph. It will be interesting to see what the situation is and to make sure that that problem can be corrected. I also acknowledge the huge effort that has been made in improving the Garda form, because that had been a major problem for people. The validation of an application, once it arrives, also needs to be corrected...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Passport Services (23 Jun 2022)

Simon Coveney: I understand those arguments. Every city, town and county would like to have the convenience of being able to go to pick up emergency passports at short notice locally. My job, however, is to try to deliver 130,000, 150,000 or 160,000 passports a month and to do so in an efficient way whereby I can stand over the delivery times within which we say we will deliver and to get more than 90% of...

Thomas Gould: Is the Minister looking at an office?
