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

Mattie McGrath: Christmas can be hell for parents whose children are in State care. In the Gallery the Minister will see mothers and grandparents who have not seen their children in years. Tusla has blocked reunification every step of the way. Last week Jacinta Swan from Clarecare told the committee on children that parents describe the experience of having a child taken into care as something similar to...

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

Michael McGrath: I thank Deputy McGrath. To be fair it might be more appropriate for the Minister, Deputy O'Gorman, to have that meeting. I will ask him to do so. I think the interests of the child are paramount. What we should be working towards is that there is reunification, particularly at Christmas when people deserve to spend time with their families, but on the proviso that what is paramount first...

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

Thomas Pringle: Due to the delay in processing applications for the defective concrete blocks grant scheme homeowners have been told by Revenue they are not eligible for the exemption from local property tax because their applications have not yet been processed. Homeowners were assured they would be exempt from local property tax if their home was affected by mica. It is through no fault of their own that...

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

Michael McGrath: I thank Deputy Pringle for raising this issue. I am reluctant to give a commitment on the floor of the House that cannot be stood over and implemented but I understand the point he is making. The spirit of what has been decided is clear and we have to find a way of giving effect to it. I will discuss the issue with the Minister, Deputy Donohoe, and we will revert to the Deputy.

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

Cormac Devlin: The Minister is aware that many doctors signed up to category A consultant contracts during the early stage of the Covid-19 pandemic. Alongside their colleagues in the health sector they were on the front line throughout the pandemic. We in the House are extremely grateful for all of their efforts. Will the Minister provide an update on the progress to date of the incremental credit...

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

Michael McGrath: I thank Deputy Devlin for raising this issue. A cornerstone of the Sláintecare policy is that we move towards public activity in our public hospitals. As Deputy Devlin knows discussions have been under way for quite some time between the HSE and the Department of Health with the relevant bodies, namely, the IMO and the Irish Hospital Consultants Association. I have been briefed as to...

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

Kieran O'Donnell: Wholesale electricity prices fell sharply last month by 52%. The temporary business energy support scheme is great. It gives businesses up to €10,000 in supports where their electricity costs increase by 50% and they get 40% back. These wholesale electricity price reductions are not being passed on to the end consumer. We are facing into a very cold spell and a severe winter when...

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

Michael McGrath: I thank Deputy O'Donnell who has raised a question in which many consumers throughout the country will be interested on feeding through reduced wholesale gas prices to the domestic electricity and gas prices charged to households and businesses in Ireland. As the Deputy knows, pricing is a matter for the companies themselves. He can be assured the Minister, Deputy Ryan, the Department and...

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

Claire Kerrane: I have just listened to a weather expert on radio advising households as temperatures are expected to drop below freezing for what he called "a prolonged period." He suggested those unable to access the fuel allowance, which is the majority of workers and families, can access an additional needs payment. If only it was that simple. This is, of course, an important support in cases of...

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

Michael McGrath: I thank the Deputy. I appreciate that the cold weather, which has arrived and will get worse, is a real concern for many households. We want people to be comfortable in their homes. I will take up the specific issue she has raised about the timeframe that some applications for additional needs payments are taking and her suggestion regarding CWOs. I ask people who are in need to engage...

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

Gerald Nash: The impact of the changes the Minister for Health will make to Navan emergency department, ED, or Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Drogheda from next Monday will mean that "patients may die". These are not my words. These are only some of the words of 17 hospital consultants of my own local hospital, Our Lady of Lourdes, in Drogheda, expressed in what was an alarming letter to the Minister...

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

Michael McGrath: I thank the Deputy. The Minister, Deputy Stephen Donnelly, has spoken to some colleagues on this issue and has made it clear that, contrary some reports, the ED in Navan is not closing this month. Of course, a concern the Deputy has is the knock-on consequences for Drogheda and the ambulance bypass protocol. The only change, as I understand it, is in a very exceptional and specific...

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

Gary Gannon: Our public services across the board are under massive strain because those we ask to work in them cannot afford to live in our cities and urban areas. One consequence of that where it is most pronounced is in our schools. We have a staffing crisis in our schools for a variety of reasons but predominantly because our teachers, in particular, younger teachers, cannot afford to live in our...

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

Michael McGrath: It is important to clarify the position with regard to the Patient Safety (Notifiable Patient Safety Incidents) Bill 2019 and the key issue of open disclosure, which has been raised here. We should not confuse clinical audits with patient-requested reviews. They are different. They are explained clearly in the report that was published by the expert review group. A new patient-requested...
