An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (6 Dec 2022)

Michael McGrath: We have now provided a dedicated stream of funding for new medicines to be progressed through the system and, ultimately, to be made available to the patients who are impacted. That has been broadly welcomed by the industry. That is ring-fenced funding that has been secured. As the Deputy said, the NCPE does its job competently. I am aware of the committee report to which he referred, and...

An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (6 Dec 2022)

James O'Connor: I would like to ask about the proposed section 21(3) of the sale of the alcohol Bill 2022, which deals with the issues that are facing publicans in this country around the value of their licences. I am hearing repeatedly from publicans in my own area, particularly those I met recently in Mitchelstown in north Cork, about the huge concerns within the Vintners Federation of Ireland and within...

An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (6 Dec 2022)

Michael McGrath: I thank the Deputy for raising this issue. The general scheme of the Bill has been published by the Minister for Justice, Deputy McEntee. There will be a process of engagement, including, of course, with the relevant Oireachtas committee during the pre-legislative scrutiny phase. I anticipate that all the stakeholders that the Deputy referenced will be given an opportunity by the committee...

An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (6 Dec 2022)

Michael Healy-Rae: Kerry County Council is committed to ensuring that any property in its ownership that becomes vacant is re-tenanted as soon as possible, but this requires finance. Currently, the council has 74 houses that are not in the programme for repair because they require an estimated €2.7 million to do the repairs and to bring them back into use. It was reported in November that the...

An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (6 Dec 2022)

Michael McGrath: We want to see those 74 voids brought back into play. I will take that issue up with the Minister for Housing, Local Government and Heritage, Deputy Darragh O’Brien. He has made a lot of progress through the local authorities by providing the extra funding over the past couple of years. The number of voids has, therefore, reduced. There will always be some element of voids, but...

An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (6 Dec 2022)

Peadar Tóibín: I welcome the fact that the Minister for Health has said that the bypass will not proceed in its entirety, although I am still significantly concerned that a bypass will happen. This is an amazing situation. On two occasions this year, the HSE has issued press statements saying that it will do things and saying that it has had the authority of the Minister when it did not. The Minister has...

An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (6 Dec 2022)

Verona Murphy: Page 45 the programme for Government details the importance of primary and community care as being at the heart of Sláintecare. Little baby Jacob from Wellingtonbridge was born in February of this year with complex medical needs and requires 24-hour nursing care. Jacob has undergone three heart surgeries this year and his family are now at breaking point. His parents are struggling to...

An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (6 Dec 2022)

Michael McGrath: I thank Deputy Gannon. The Minister, Deputy Foley, and the Minister of State, Deputy Madigan, are very much aware of this issue. They have already taken a number of steps, including on a temporary basis for the current school year that job-sharing teachers may be employed to work in a substitute capacity during the period they are rostered off. The limits on substitute work applying to...

An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (6 Dec 2022)

Gino Kenny: The European Commission has called for a different approach to breast cancer detection. A key recommendation is to extend breast cancer screening to include women between the ages of 45 and 74. In Ireland the screening process for women is between the ages of 50 and 69. A total of 23% of all women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer are between the ages of 20 and 50. Will the...

An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (6 Dec 2022)

Michael McGrath: I thank Deputy Kenny for raising this issue. I do not have a specific answer to hand. I will ask the Minister, Deputy Donnelly, to revert to the Deputy on any consideration being given to changing the age eligibility for the breast cancer screening programme.

An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (6 Dec 2022)

Matt Shanahan: Last week we had the visit of President von der Leyen. She gave an inspirational speech in which she highlighted the importance of Ireland's voice in Europe. She said that when Ireland speaks Europe listens. Last week the CEO of Ryanair came before the transport committee and outlined that if implemented the open skies European policy would deliver an emissions dividend of 20% to the...

An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (6 Dec 2022)

Michael McGrath: I thank Deputy Shanahan. My understanding is the Minister, Deputy Ryan, and Minister of State, Deputy Naughton, are supportive of the single European sky initiative. They have been engaging with counterparts from throughout Europe. They have been setting out the Irish position at the relevant Council meeting and they will continue to do so.
