12/11/2015 [Order of Business] The Order of Business is No. 1, Finance (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill 2015 - Second Stage, to be taken at 12.45 p.m., with the time allocated to group spokespersons not to exceed eight minutes and all other Members not to exceed five minutes.[Cummins, Maurice]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [285]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] I ask the Leader to organise a debate on the home repossession rate. It has been reported today that 4,500 homes were repossessed in 2015. This is on top of over 7,000 homes that were repossessed. The amazing thing about this is the lack of joined-up thinking in the Government...Vol-243 Book-6 Page [285]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] Senator Daly is engaging in the collective amnesia which we have seen very regularly from Fianna Fáil. It is trying to disown all responsibility for NAMA and, indeed, for the economic crash that necessitated its establishment by Fianna Fáil.[Bacik, Ivana]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [286]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] I am trying to be helpful. I am saying that NAMA should not be selling properties-----[Daly, Mark]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [286]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] -----and that the Government should be buying the properties.[Daly, Mark]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [287]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] It would be most helpful if the Senator would just let me speak. I let him speak even though I did not agree with what he said. However, I join Senator Daly in calling for a debate on policing. We would do well to examine constructive ideas on improving the quality of policing...Vol-243 Book-6 Page [287]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] We were unable to find out the name of the woman who was seriously injured in the crash on the M50 yesterday, but I am sure we will find it out later. We wish her a speedy recovery. I do not underestimate the impact on her and I extend my sympathy, but in the wider context the ...Vol-243 Book-6 Page [287]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] In the light of the comments made by Senators Ivana Bacik and Susan O'Keeffe, I recommend to Members of all genders that they see the movie "Suffragette" which is being shown in Irish cinemas. It traces in a fictional way, albeit with a factual background, the struggle of women ...Vol-243 Book-6 Page [289]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] I hope somebody in RTE is listening to me. I acknowledge that RTE radio has a different policy and always ensures Irish sports results are given first. I hope the Leader might comment on this issue. Unfortunately, it is not a matter for the Minister-----[Mooney, Paschal]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [289]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] ----- but pertains to RTE's operational procedures. I hope other voices will join mine to ensure women's sport in Ireland is given the due regard it deserves.[Mooney, Paschal]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [290]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] As ever, Senator Mark Daly excels in being mischievous. However, this morning there may be a grain or a morsel of merit in a little of what he stated.[Coghlan, Paul]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [290]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] I was recently struck by the issue of retirement. People obviously reach retirement age, although some argue it is too young, but that well known, good, able-bodied man with great advice and expertise, Chief Superintendent Pat McGee, retired and he-----[Coghlan, Paul]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [290]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] The Senator knows well the rule about naming people in the House.[An Cathaoirleach]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [290]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] Of course I do, but I have nothing but praise for the man.[Coghlan, Paul]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [290]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] That is beside the point. As people are not here to defend themselves, I ask the Senator to refrain from doing so.[An Cathaoirleach]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [290]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] I will make the point generally. It would be wonderful if it was possible to make available through a forum of some kind the advice and expertise of senior people who had retired from the force, especially those who had served in Border areas for a long time and were familiar wi...Vol-243 Book-6 Page [290]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] Recently, we have seen many people object to paying water charges. They have every right to object. Couples object because it would cost them an extra €160 a year net, when one takes the water conservation grant into account. Single people object to paying €60 when one takes t...Vol-243 Book-6 Page [291]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] I ask the Leader to make contact with the Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government, Deputy Alan Kelly, with regard to the implementation of the Urban Regeneration and Housing Act 2015, which was a welcome measure introduced by the Government to kick-start rege...Vol-243 Book-6 Page [291]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] I support Senator Bacik and Senator Daly who asked for a debate with the Minister for Justice and Equality, Deputy Fitzgerald, on policing, in particular some of the issues that have been raised about covering substitute leave. I am conscious that in recent years during our econ...Vol-243 Book-6 Page [292]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] Yes, indeed. I have been asked by the Oireachtas Joint Committee on Education and Social Protection-----[Craughwell, Gerard P.]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [293]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] -----to prepare a report and the Tánaiste has said that she would bring such a report, if I prepared it, to the Cabinet. I have been frustrated at every turn. I have written to everybody and asked for submissions. I am receiving e-mails from councillors every day of the week a...Vol-243 Book-6 Page [293]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] If the Senator would allow me continue, I am one of the few voices in this Chamber who can speak for the 194 independent councillors.[Craughwell, Gerard P.]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [293]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] I do not believe that. We are all in contact-----[Coghlan, Paul]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [293]

12/11/2015 [Order of Business] My question for the Leader is a simple one. Will I be treated with the dignity to which I am entitled as a Member of the Oireachtas and be given the information I requested? That is my first question. Second, will two items on the clár, motion No. 11, dated 17 June, and motion...Vol-243 Book-6 Page [293]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] Those motions can be taken during Private Members' time.[An Cathaoirleach]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [293]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] From where will I get Private Members' time? I do not even have speaking time here but for the Cathaoirleach's good grace.[Craughwell, Gerard P.]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [293]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] At least the Cathaoirleach behaves in an impartial manner and I deeply respect him for that.[Craughwell, Gerard P.]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [293]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] There are other names to those motions but I would be the lead one. Fianna Fáil supported me on motion No. 11 and all our names are appended to motion No. 14. Lets not be afraid. Let us discuss this issue openly.[Craughwell, Gerard P.]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [293]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] I add my voice in support of what was said by two of my colleagues. The first being Senator Paul Coghlan who made his remarks and paid tributes. I appreciate the Cathaoirleach's comment that we are not allowed name individuals but others have paid tribute to chief superintenden...Vol-243 Book-6 Page [294]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] I ask the Senator to refrain from naming people on the record of the House. They are not here to defend themselves.[An Cathaoirleach]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [294]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] -----in support of what has been said with respect to senior gardaí. I wholeheartedly agree with Senator Paul Coghlan that it should be possible, through some mechanism, to be able to contact members who served in the higher ranks of the Garda and who have experience with regar...Vol-243 Book-6 Page [294]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] I ask that the Cathaoirleach to let me finish. Dundalk has suffered from murders-----[Moran, Mary]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [294]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] There is no problem with what the Senator wants to do-----[An Cathaoirleach]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [294]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] ----- but she has to find an avenue to do it. This is the Order of Business.[An Cathaoirleach]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [294]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] Dundalk suffered dreadfully in the past number years from murders, high unemployment and from the effects of the recession.[Moran, Mary]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [294]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] The Senator will have to find a way to raise those issues but she cannot do so on the Order of Business.[An Cathaoirleach]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [294]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] When we have good news, I do not see why we are not allowed to highlight it.[Moran, Mary]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [295]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] I am disappointed that I have been ruled out of order again but I think if it was a Gaelic match we would have had hours of praise for the Gaelic team.[Moran, Mary]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [295]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] Let us have a little bit of equality in this as well.[Moran, Mary]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [295]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] -----I wish to raise a point of information to clarify a matter.[Craughwell, Gerard P.]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [295]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] I made the point that I had written to Senators but I did not write to the individual Independents Members of this House.[Craughwell, Gerard P.]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [295]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] Senator Kelly raised the question of the cost of insurance, which is a serious matter. Ivan Yates has written a very good article on this issue in today's edition of the Irish Independent. Quite a number of claims are being submitted to insurance companies and they are reacting...Vol-243 Book-6 Page [295]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] I cannot understand how anyone could work in that context. How could the Minister, Deputy Kelly, or the Minister of State, Deputy Coffey, consider doing that? It is illogical, crazy and totally unacceptable.[Leyden, Terry]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [296]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] I am. In 1932 when Fianna Fáil came into power, we had massive building programme throughout the country. We took the issue on board. The money was not there but we were able to do it. I put a suggestion to the Government and the Minister that there are numerous well equipped...Vol-243 Book-6 Page [296]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] Many of them are underutilised in that many of the engineers do not have the amount of work to do that they should have. Most of them have been transferred to deal with water services. Good quality engineers and builders could have direct labour contracts. We have electricians...Vol-243 Book-6 Page [296]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] I am. We have to be innovative in area. Builders will not build now because the profit to be made in building is nil at this stage. It is cheaper to buy a house than to build one. We need to have a fresh look at this issue and a radical approach needs to be taken. It is a na...Vol-243 Book-6 Page [296]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] Crime is a constant worry in all communities and we need a general debate on the issue in the Seanad. Obviously, we must seek more resources for the Garda and look at how the force carries out its business. In my county of Meath, at the start of the Government's term, the Garda...Vol-243 Book-6 Page [296]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] I support what Senator John Kelly said about the spectrum of price increases in health, home and motor insurance. Unfortunately, whatever gains will accrue to the average family from budgetary changes will be swept away by the increase in the price of insurance. During the year...Vol-243 Book-6 Page [297]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] I support the comments on rural crime made by Senator Thomas Byrne and agree with him that we urgently need to have a debate on crime which I know is a problem in urban and rural areas. It was very discouraging to see a serial burglar being released by the courts recently agains...Vol-243 Book-6 Page [297]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] As I did yesterday, I seek a debate on the abortion issue. I agree with Senator Susan O'Keeffe who sought a debate on the repeal of the eight amendment and call on the Leader to arrange same. There is an onus on those who are proposing the repeal of the eighth amendment to talk...Vol-243 Book-6 Page [298]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] It is also a fundamental human rights issue. I refer to the right to life.[Walsh, Jim]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [298]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] The right to life is fundamental, as Senator Susan O'Keeffe knows. I would like her to outline her position on the issue, as well as on the issue of gendercide.[Walsh, Jim]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [298]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] I join other colleagues in calling for debates on policing and a number of other issues. I also seek a debate on the Garda Reserve, to which Senator Paul Bradford alluded. I support the Garda Reserve and think it should be expanded. Its role should be increased within An Garda...Vol-243 Book-6 Page [299]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] We are in danger of taking the gender debate to a ridiculous level when it would lose its impact.[Wilson, Diarmuid]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [299]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] I am not suggesting there are not but to suggest that a certain quota should be reserved on a gender basis is ridiculous-----[Wilson, Diarmuid]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [299]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] Exclusion is what the problem is. Exclusion is the problem-----[O'Keeffe, Susan]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [299]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] -----to a level that will undermine the entire debate.[Wilson, Diarmuid]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [299]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] The Senator is excluding them from life. That is my concern with Senator O'Keeffe.[Walsh, Jim]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [299]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] Senator Craughwell commented on councillors' pay and conditions, in particular PRSI. He is aware, as are all Members of the House, that an all-party group is in existence and is attempting to increase the pay and conditions of councillors, including their PRSI entitlements. Tha...Vol-243 Book-6 Page [299]

12/11/2015 [Order of Business] Great. The Senator might start answering their inquiries.[Craughwell, Gerard P.]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [300]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] -----as is my job and the job of others in this House.[Wilson, Diarmuid]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [300]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] I commend Senator Craughwell for the effort he has made during his short time in this House on behalf of the electorate of the majority of the Members of the Seanad. I will assist him, as I am sure my other colleagues will, in whatever way I can with the particular issues that h...Vol-243 Book-6 Page [300]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] Today is a very special day in the history of Galway city and county. Today we present our case in Dublin Castle for the European Capital of Culture. Galway Chamber of Commerce has shown leadership extraordinaire and agreed to a 3% increase in rates on the basis that it will be...Vol-243 Book-6 Page [300]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] It is a positive thing. He speaks about the human cost of the economic recovery. Not enough research is done in that area. He says what really matters is the lived experience of our families, communities and people with disabilities. I could not agree with him more.
There h...

12/11/2015 [Order of Business] It is a question that I hope the Leader can answer today. If he cannot, I understand that and I ask that he come back to the House with an answer on this issue. It is something that has come to me of late in the context of so many repossessions and it is of deep concern to our ...Vol-243 Book-6 Page [300]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] Senator Daly raised the issue of home repossession rates and other matters relating to housing. As I mentioned yesterday, the Residential Tenancies (Amendment) (No. 2) Bill will come before the House on Committee Stage next week. We will be able to debate all the proposals that...Vol-243 Book-6 Page [300]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] The private sector does not have leave of absence. If it did, companies would not function effectively.[Walsh, Jim]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [301]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] I am giving the Leader a bit of advice about the private sector.[Walsh, Jim]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [301]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] I thought he did. I remind the Senator that there has been a significant decrease in the number of gardaí in the last number of years. If the training college is closed down and there are no gardaí coming on board, obviously that is what will happen. That is what his Governmen...Vol-243 Book-6 Page [301]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] I was talking about an issue that has been there-----[Daly, Mark]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [301]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] -----and will be there for some time to come. Leave of absence is an entitlement of gardaí, nurses and teachers.[Daly, Mark]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [301]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] I agree with the Senator that there is a need for greater Garda presence and greater Garda numbers.[Cummins, Maurice]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [301]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] That is exactly what the Government is doing and intends to do-----[Cummins, Maurice]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [301]

12/11/2015 [Order of Business] -----in order to combat crime whether in urban or rural areas.

12/11/2015 [Order of Business] Senators Kelly and Bradford highlighted the rise in the cost of motor, home and other insurance premia. Senator Kelly called for the motor insurance advisory board to be reactivated. I agree with him that there is a need for an investigation. I know the relevant joint Oireachta...Vol-243 Book-6 Page [303]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] It is an Independent Senator looking for this. It would be nice to be included.[Craughwell, Gerard P.]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [303]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] The all-party approach was there well in advance of the motions that were put down. We appreciate certainly-----[Cummins, Maurice]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [303]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] I have also put down freedom of information requests.[Craughwell, Gerard P.]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [303]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] I appreciate the fact Senator Craughwell has been appointed a rapporteur on PRSI for councillors. I am sure he will do an excellent job on that. As I said, the all-party group met with the Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government, Deputy Alan Kelly, on this ...Vol-243 Book-6 Page [303]

12/11/2015 [Order of Business] In fairness, it is new to Senators Wilson and Cummins too. That is why they have done absolutely nothing to date. They have sat on their hands.[Craughwell, Gerard P.]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [304]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] Senator Craughwell is getting very excited. As Senator Wilson said, there are many Members in this House who were on local authorities.[Cummins, Maurice]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [304]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] I am not getting a bit excited. It is time the Members in question did, however.[Craughwell, Gerard P.]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [304]
12/11/2015 [Order of Business] It has been a long time for some Members, so much so that they have forgotten it.[Craughwell, Gerard P.]Vol-243 Book-6 Page [304]
