Abuse at Certain Educational Institutions: Statements (24 Nov 2022)

Abuse at Certain Educational Institutions: Statements (24 Nov 2022)

Norma Foley: I welcome the opportunity to provide a statement on the deeply shocking and disturbing accounts of abuse in certain schools. I know that all in this House and right across the country will have felt the same sense of shock and revulsion at the revelations made in recent weeks about the extent of sexual abuse in Spiritan schools. I have engaged with survivors over recent days and will...

Ceisteanna ar Pholasaí nó ar Reachtaíocht - Questions on Policy or Legislation (24 Nov 2022)

Gino Kenny: Yesterday, with other Deputies, I attended the launch of the "Final Report – Scoping Inquiry into the CervicalCheck Screening Programme" by Dr. Gabriel Scally. It was an uplifting briefing but it was also sombre. One could not help thinking of all the women who should have been here today had it not been for the systemic failures in the cervical cancer screening programme. A...

Ceisteanna ar Pholasaí nó ar Reachtaíocht - Questions on Policy or Legislation (24 Nov 2022)

Leo Varadkar: I join with the Deputy in thanking Dr. Scally and his team for the work they have done in the past couple of years. We were very lucky as a country that we found him. He has done some really good work to help us improve the CervicalCheck programme. I am very grateful to him and his team for that. The Coombe lab is being developed at the moment. We are keen to have it up and running...

Ceisteanna ar Pholasaí nó ar Reachtaíocht - Questions on Policy or Legislation (24 Nov 2022)

Jennifer Carroll MacNeill: I wish to ask the Tánaiste again about the implementation of the sexual offences Bill where we would have legal representation for victims of sexual assault. I met with Aimee Foley who very bravely became a public advocate for this in challenging her own father and the difficulty she faced in terms of communication with the DPP and understanding court process would be made easier by...

Ceisteanna ar Pholasaí nó ar Reachtaíocht - Questions on Policy or Legislation (24 Nov 2022)

Leo Varadkar: I had the chance to meet Aimee Foley myself yesterday very briefly when she was in the House. I really admire her courage in going public in the way that she did and seeking a tougher sentence. I am glad that the DPP did appeal that sentence and that a higher sentence was secured. I would like to see that happen a little more often than it does. I understand and see the case for legal...

Ceisteanna ar Pholasaí nó ar Reachtaíocht - Questions on Policy or Legislation (24 Nov 2022)

Violet Wynne: There are 43,981 adults on outpatient waiting lists in the mid west; 11,422 have been on the list for over 18 months. That is almost 26% of the overall figure of those on the list. As a former Minister for Health, I hope the Tánaiste will appreciate that these long delays for scheduled care directly relate to overcrowding in the one emergency department in the region which is...

Leo Varadkar: The negotiations on the consultant contract are ongoing. They are at an advanced stage. Within the next couple of weeks we will know whether agreement is possible or not. They are being chaired independently and it would not be helpful for me to engage in running commentary on some of the outstanding issues. I think we are close to the point in the next couple of weeks as to whether we...

Misuse of Drugs (Cannabis Regulation) Bill 2022: First Stage (24 Nov 2022)

Ceisteanna ar Pholasaí nó ar Reachtaíocht - Questions on Policy or Legislation (24 Nov 2022)

Pauline Tully: We are constantly encouraged to use public transport where available and to leave the car at home. I wish to raise problems with the bus service from Cavan to Dublin, the 109X. The service has sufficient capacity going to Dublin but there are huge problems with the return journey. Buses are at capacity when they reach the last stop out of Dublin, which is at Blanchardstown, from about 4.30...

Ceisteanna ar Pholasaí nó ar Reachtaíocht - Questions on Policy or Legislation (24 Nov 2022)

Leo Varadkar: I am afraid I am not familiar with the 109X, but if it stops in Blanchardstown I probably should be. The provision of a shelter should not be too difficult. With the additional funding for public transport, perhaps additional capacity can be provided. If the Deputy would like to set out the details in writing on one or two pages, I will make sure the matter gets taken up with the NTA and...
