Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Covid-19 Pandemic Supports (14 Jul 2020)

Leo Varadkar: Extensive modelling and analysis were undertaken for the three Economic Considerations for Reinstating Economic Activity papers developed by my Department at phases 1, 2 and 3 of the Roadmap for Reopening Society and Business. These three papers, which are available on my Department's website gov.ie, were developed in conjunction with the Department of Finance and the Department of Public...

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Employment Rights (14 Jul 2020)

Leo Varadkar: What we need is for the Supreme Court to hear this case quickly because there is little point in us bringing in legislation that is equally unfirm and could be struck down. We will be seeking an early hearing by the Supreme Court so that this issue can be clarified. In the meantime, the terms and conditions of those on existing contracts cannot be reduced unilaterally. There is an issue,...

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Employment Rights (14 Jul 2020)

Aodhán Ó Ríordáin: 14. To ask the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation his plans to address the defects identified in legislation relating to the making of sectoral employment orders following the recent High Court judgment; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [15993/20]

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Employment Rights (14 Jul 2020)

Aodhán Ó Ríordáin: On the same matter, I wish to have placed on the record of the House the Minister's intentions in terms of dealing with the High Court decision on sectoral employment orders, outside of appealing to the Supreme Court. Are there legislative proposals from his Department? The Minister indicated to my colleague that he does not have any legislative proposals but I ask him to clarify that and...

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Employment Rights (14 Jul 2020)

Leo Varadkar: As I mentioned earlier, this case is going to be appealed to both the Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court, with a view to going straight to the Supreme Court in order that we can have an adjudication as soon as possible. The difficulty we have is that because this section of the legislation has been struck down as unconstitutional, it is questionable as to whether this House can bring in...

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Employment Rights (14 Jul 2020)

Aodhán Ó Ríordáin: If one is in employment that is governed by a sectoral employment order, one will feel particularly insecure currently, in conjunction with how insecure one might feel because of Covid and the fact that in living memory we had an economic crash less than a decade ago. We have lived in a low-wage economy for some years. I stated previously to the Minister previously - the Labour Party wishes...

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Employment Rights (14 Jul 2020)

Leo Varadkar: What we are doing to demonstrate that we have the backs of electrical contractors and workers on this issue is appealing the High Court decision. We do not have to appeal it but we are choosing to appeal it because we think it is the right thing to do. We will look at the legislation produced. I have not seen the Bill yet, but we will examine it. Deputy Ó Ríordáin has been...

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Employment Rights (14 Jul 2020)

Aodhán Ó Ríordáin: It is all about intent and how strongly one believes in these things. This is legislation that has been proposed by a former Minister in this area, who brought in the 2015 legislation to which the Minister, Deputy Varadkar, referred in an earlier comment. It is not a case of playing games or doing something for the sake of it; it is legislation that has identified the issues raised in the...

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Employment Rights (14 Jul 2020)

Leo Varadkar: There is a big difference between intent and sincerity on the one hand and virtue signalling and critical messaging on the other. One is good and the other is phony. We will look at the legislation Deputy Nash has produced. We did look at the Bill he produced before Christmas, which was unconstitutional. We will give the Bill serious consideration and see if it is defective or not. What...

Louise O'Reilly: 15. To ask the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation if he will implement legislation or measures to prevent tactical insolvency and ensure that workers are protected in insolvency situations. [15877/20]

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Company Closures (14 Jul 2020)

Louise O'Reilly: This question is a fairly simple one. It is to ask the Minister if he will implement the legislative measures to prevent tactical insolvencies and ensure that workers are protected in insolvency situations. The latest of quite a number of cases of this nature concerns the Debenhams workers, but there has been a litany of cases. Every time this comes up, whoever is in government says...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Economic Growth (14 Jul 2020)

Mary Lou McDonald: Was the Government co-ordination committee convened to deal with the issues regarding the Minister, Deputy Cowen? Is that the mechanism the Taoiseach uses to brief his partners in Government on all of the serious issues arising, including the contested Garda PULSE records that suggest the Minister sought to evade a Garda checkpoint? The Taoiseach has said the co-ordination committee...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Economic Growth (14 Jul 2020)

Alan Kelly: There is a bit of confusion about the co-ordination committee. Will the Taoiseach tell us exactly who is on it and who can be on it? Is that decided on a case-by-case basis? Who are the defined people who will definitely attend all meetings?

Ceisteanna - Questions: Economic Growth (14 Jul 2020)

Micheál Martin: It is my understanding that it is in the functioning document.

Ceisteanna - Questions: Economic Growth (14 Jul 2020)

Alan Kelly: That has not changed and will not change at all.

Ceisteanna - Questions: Economic Growth (14 Jul 2020)

Micheál Martin: The committee has not been convened to deal with any one issue, including the situation pertaining to the Minister, Deputy Cowen. It will meet in advance of every Cabinet meeting to discuss the Cabinet agenda, including legislation which may be on the agenda on which agreement may not yet have been arrived. Ordinarily, agreement will have been arrived at. Someone may say his party wants to...
