Dog Breeding Establishments (Amendment) Bill 2021: Second Stage [Private Members] (24 Nov 2022)

Heather Humphreys: I welcome the debate. I thank the Deputies for bringing forward the Bill and for all their contributions. As I said earlier, the proposals in this private Members' Bill are consistent with my Department's overall objective to promote responsible dog breeding in Ireland. Deputy Donnelly mentioned crossbreeding, which is just awful. Mixing a small dog like a Pomeranian with a big dog really...

Dog Breeding Establishments (Amendment) Bill 2021: Second Stage [Private Members] (24 Nov 2022)

Réada Cronin: I am glad to speak to the Bill and I commend na Teachtaí Tóibín, Grealish and Canney, all of whom had some part in getting it to this stage. It was nice to hear the Minister's remarks. I always think the Thursday debates are a bit more easygoing and it was good to hear her put her dogs' names on the record, so I will do likewise. I had no dog to welcome me home last night...

Dog Breeding Establishments (Amendment) Bill 2021: Second Stage [Private Members] (24 Nov 2022)

Paul Donnelly: I thank Deputy Tóibín and the other Deputies who brought forward this important Bill. On a few occasions, I sat in on the committee meetings because I feel passionately and strongly about the mistreatment of dogs. I will declare my ownership of a husky, who was at the groomer's today getting ready for Christmas. Anybody who owns dogs cherishes them. It is important that we look...

Dog Breeding Establishments (Amendment) Bill 2021: Second Stage [Private Members] (24 Nov 2022)

Heather Humphreys: I thank Deputies Tóibín, Canney and Grealish for bringing forward this Private Member's Bill. I am pleased to inform the House that the Government is not opposing the Bill. I have two dogs myself, a miniature Yorkshire terrier called Rusty and a King Charles spaniel called Lady. Like everybody else, they are part of the family and we would be heartbroken if anything happened to...

As part of the structured engagement process, information meetings with the facilitator have been set up with...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Schools Amalgamation (24 Nov 2022)

Frank Feighan: As the Deputy knows, I am taking this matter on behalf of the Minister for Education. I thank the Deputy for raising this matter. It gives me the opportunity to set out for the House the position with regard to the schools reconfiguration engagement process that is ongoing in a number of pilot areas nationwide, including a number of primary schools in the Raheny area. In March this...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Schools Amalgamation (24 Nov 2022)

Aodhán Ó Ríordáin: There are two issues. One is that the independent facilitator has indicated that he will "read the room". No matter what side of the debate one is on, whether one wants divestment, co-educational schools or for things to remain exactly as they are, an independent facilitator saying to a group of parents or anybody that it will be his determination what the temperature is by just reading the...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Medical Cards (24 Nov 2022)

Frank Feighan: I thank the Deputy for raising this issue. He talked about issuing medical cards quickly and people having to supply information again. He has a unique view on the hospital making a decision. A time of illness is difficult and a cancer patient experiencing trauma, for example, needs compassion and needs the State to act as quickly as possible. Person-centred care is a core value of the...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Medical Cards (24 Nov 2022)

Bernard Durkan: In fact, it is not happening as it should. The people involved know that full well. Where there is a terminal illness or life-threatening illness that may become terminal, what does the section want? Does it want somebody to say the patient is going to die? That is essentially what it is coming down to. That is not something I or anybody else should decide. In order to deal with the...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Medical Cards (24 Nov 2022)

Frank Feighan: I will bring the Deputy's views to the relevant section immediately. As he said, we need to alleviate some of the burden on people with serious and terminal illnesses. We do as much as possible to support people with difficult illnesses, including, where appropriate, through the provision of a medical card. Every effort is made by the HSE within the framework of the legislation to support...
