Richard Bruton: I welcome this Bill and congratulate the Minister on making this progress. I was Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment when we started this journey and it certainly took much innovation and thinking about what other countries had done and what would be most appropriate in Ireland. I know the team put a lot of work into assessing the choices that have led to the Bill...

Online Safety and Media Regulation Bill 2022: Second Stage (Resumed) (22 Sep 2022)

Emer Higgins: I am delighted to see this Bill progressing. It will take vital steps to define categories of harmful and age-inappropriate online content. It will empower the media commission to create binding online safety codes and provide a mechanism for complaints of harmful online conduct. These are all important steps in the correct direction and the Bill is Ireland's opportunity to change things...

Online Safety and Media Regulation Bill 2022: Second Stage (Resumed) (22 Sep 2022)

Aengus Ó Snodaigh: Bille an-tábhachtach é seo agus is gá dúinn déanamh cinnte de go bhfuil sé i gceart nó chomh ceart agus is féidir leis a bheith, ach go háirithe an chuid sin a dhéanann déileáil leis na ráitis agus na focail a deirtear nó fiú na físeáin a bhíonn ar na meáin shóisialta. San áireamh ansin...

Online Safety and Media Regulation Bill 2022: Second Stage (Resumed) (22 Sep 2022)

Denise Mitchell: I welcome the Bill, which is not before its time, considering we have already been fined by the EU for our failure to implement the audiovisual media services directive. The media commission is a much-needed expansion of the role of broadcasting authority. Ireland is playing catch-up with how media have evolved. The Law Reform Commission first mentioned the establishment of something...

Online Safety and Media Regulation Bill 2022: Second Stage (Resumed) (22 Sep 2022)

Martin Browne: I thank the Minister for introducing the Bill. In recent years, the self-regulation of online media has not worked. Social media operators have always tried to present their obligations as being subject to levels of oversight and standards different from those that apply to traditional media. This has led to regulation that is difficult to enforce and allowed them to shirk responsibility....

Online Safety and Media Regulation Bill 2022: Second Stage (Resumed) (22 Sep 2022)

Jennifer Carroll MacNeill: I thank the Minister for bringing the Bill to the House and for the amount of work she has done in the Seanad on it. It is really important and timely legislation and I commend her for her work. It is legislation that has been needed for some time. It is clear from our own regulation of politics and conversations with parents, schools and other actors, there is a need for regulation of...

Online Safety and Media Regulation Bill 2022: Second Stage (Resumed) (22 Sep 2022)

James O'Connor: I thank the Minister for being present. It is important to note the impact this legislation will have on the future of media and how we interpret all methods of communication. There has been extraordinary change in the past three decades in how people communicate on a daily basis. I am probably part of the first generation of elected representatives, from the 2019 local elections to the...

Online Safety and Media Regulation Bill 2022: Second Stage (Resumed) (22 Sep 2022)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: Finally, we are getting to the crux of the matter of online safety. None of us has not encountered to some degree the phenomenon of online bullying, which is consistent and constant. Never could anyone make an argument - at least, a legitimate one - against an online safety commissioner. We all know that, to a degree, there is an element here of legislation trying to catch up with where...

Online Safety and Media Regulation Bill 2022: Second Stage (Resumed) (22 Sep 2022)

Thomas Pringle: Thank you, a Leas-Cheann Comhairle, for the opportunity to speak on this important legislation. I support what Deputy Ó Cuív said about local radio. There is a lot of information that local radio gives out that is not covered as local news but should be, and those stations should be supported in that regard. Highland Radio and Ocean FM probably have a 90% listenership in Donegal....
