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

Aodhán Ó Ríordáin: The Minister for Education was in touch with my office to state she has other commitments this evening. Therefore, I appreciate the attendance of the Minister of State. I am interested in hearing what he has to say on behalf of the Government. The Minister of State will appreciate that when Deputies get 20 or 30 emails on a particular issue, they know something has gone drastically wrong....

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Hospital Facilities (24 Nov 2022)

Frank Feighan: The cross-party Sláintecare report of 2017 articulated a new vision for healthcare, including the provision of elective-only hospitals, providing protected capacity for elective care. This policy has also been informed by a number of subsequent policy documents and Government decisions including the 2017 Sláintecare report, the Sláintecare implementation strategy 2018, the...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Hospital Facilities (24 Nov 2022)

Pádraig O'Sullivan: I did not expect the Minister of State to confirm with a big fanfare that the site has been chosen as Glanmire here this evening but it is not a secret anymore. Many of us have been aware that the preferred site was Glanmire up to eight months ago, to be honest. That detail was quite well known although, as I said, I do not expect the Minister of State to confirm it this evening. I...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Hospital Facilities (24 Nov 2022)

Frank Feighan: As I said in my opening remarks, I am conscious of Deputy O'Sullivan's desire for the new elective facilities in Cork and in particular that they are delivered as soon as possible. Producing this new delivery capability into the public healthcare system will benefit the good people of Cork and indeed the whole population. I am as keen as the Deputy that they get to work as quickly as...

Medical Cards

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

Bernard Durkan: This relates to emergency medical cards and emergency relief where patients are suffering from a particular life-threatening situation and the need to issue a medical card quickly. It is true to say that a patient who has a life-threatening illness has enough worries but some are forced to wait again and again and are told they must apply again. The last thing that should be on the mind of...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Employment Rights (24 Nov 2022)

Frank Feighan: I thank the Deputy for raising this very important issue. It was raised in the Dáil this morning too. I extend my sympathies to the workers in the Butcher's Block, who are now suddenly facing job losses. The way in which this was handled was cold and lacked compassion. It is no way to treat hardworking, loyal workers. We have to protect and support workers. The Government and I...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Employment Rights (24 Nov 2022)

Mick Barry: I asked the Minister of State a question and, in response, he read out a prepared script. The script dealt with many different points but did not deal with the core question I asked him, so I will use my time to go back over that. The response he gave states that if push comes to shove, the State will pay statutory redundancy to the workers who have lost their jobs in Cork, Dungarvan and...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Employment Rights (24 Nov 2022)

Frank Feighan: The Deputy has outlined many different issues, including the tip jars, holiday pay and back pay. I will bring those concerns to the Minister. The Debenhams Bill, or legislation like it, does not come under the remit of my Department, but I will bring the Deputy's suggestion to the Minister. The Government appreciates the impact this dispute has on the affected workers, and the...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Hospital Facilities (24 Nov 2022)

Pádraig O'Sullivan: I acknowledge that we had a bit of news on this issue earlier in the week, in an article featured in the Irish Examiner, courtesy of Danny McConnell, who is sitting above us. The early indications coming out of the announcement seem to suggest the confirmation we have all been looking for in Cork North-Central. Deputy Barry opposite and all the Deputies in Cork North-Central - well, many of...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Employment Rights (24 Nov 2022)

Mick Barry: "Unfortunately, we have closed the shop in Blackpool. There won't be any need for any staff member to attend work from now on. You will be contacted by people as regards how to claim your redundancy and all the other bits and pieces. Thank you for your service over the years. Kind regards, Sean Nyhan". This is the text message that was sent to a Butcher's Block manager in the middle...

Communications Regulation Bill 2022: Instruction to Committee (24 Nov 2022)

Michael McNamara: I have to say I have concerns about this motion. They stem as much from the content of the Bill as from the manner in which it has been brought before the House to date. When the Bill was discussed on Committee Stage, certain matters were ruled out of order. The Minister of State is now seeking a motion to instruct the committee so that those matters can be brought back before it. That...

Communications Regulation Bill 2022: Instruction to Committee (24 Nov 2022)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: This motion is necessary to deal with specific amendments. A fair amount has been put into the public domain by my colleague, Deputy Ó Snodaigh, in particular, on the digital hub and the fear of lost good, initiatives from a part of Dublin and that will need to be addressed. Across the board, we all welcome parts of this Bill in dealing with European directives and codes that need...
