15/07/2013 [Order of Business (Resumed)] I express regret at the serious outbreak of rioting in Northern Ireland over the weekend in the context of the decision by the Parades Commission. It is most unfortunate that the parties involved could not see fit to abide by the Parades Commission ruling. It is rathe...Vol-225 Book-1 Page [4]
15/07/2013 [Order of Business (Resumed)] I wish to express some concern about a newspaper headline yesterday, namely, "Noonan wants €750 million capital fund to boost employment". The thinking in the article seemed to be that each €1 million spent creates eight to 12 new jobs and, therefore €750 million would...Vol-225 Book-1 Page [5]
15/07/2013 [Order of Business (Resumed)] Today a Government Minister misled the people, in making a statement that up to €20 million a year, and up to €100 million over five years, would be saved by the abolition of the Seanad. Before 7 p.m. on Wednesday I want a report on how €20 million a year will be saved...Vol-225 Book-1 Page [5]

It would be fair and equitable that we know exactly what the House costs and the ...Vol-225 Book-1 Page [6]
15/07/2013 [Order of Business (Resumed)] I ask the Leader to confirm that the Bill is still before the House. Has the Bill been passed? Has it been signed by the President? Will the President refer it to the Supreme Court? I want it confirmed by the Leader that this is the case. How can the Taoiseach anno...Vol-225 Book-1 Page [6]
15/07/2013 [Order of Business (Resumed)] They are spending €150,000 or €200,000 on this wasteful campaign. I hope Deputy Regina Doherty gets her taste of Deputy McEntee in the next election. Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.[Leyden, Terry]Vol-225 Book-1 Page [6]
15/07/2013 [Order of Business (Resumed)] The Cathaoirleach should let me finish, I will not take long. The other evening, a Minister of State was forced to resign. It never happened in the history of the State. She made derogatory comments-----[Leyden, Terry]Vol-225 Book-1 Page [6]
15/07/2013 [Order of Business (Resumed)] The Cathaoirleach should let me finish the point. I will not be misrepresented, as I was last week in this House. Deputy Creighton made very derogatory comments about Mr. Haughey. Mr. Haughey never fired a Minister of State on the telephone.[Leyden, Terry]Vol-225 Book-1 Page [6]
15/07/2013 [Order of Business (Resumed)] I refer to the terrible accident that took place in Killarney town on Saturday morning.

He ...Vol-225 Book-1 Page [6]
15/07/2013 [Order of Business (Resumed)] I am astonished that Senator Bacik, my old and good friend, continues to refer to the convention and the Government's response to it in glowing terms.

15/07/2013 [Order of Business (Resumed)] On the Order of Business last Thursday I called for a debate on health care.

He is correct in that regard, but the Minister will be present to discuss a very im...Vol-225 Book-1 Page [8]

15/07/2013 [Order of Business (Resumed)] I agree but I would make a final point. The Government is preoccupied with water charges and water meters for water that it does not have. It must build the Garryhinch reservoir and Government Ministers should stop spreading untruths about the Seanad.[Whelan, John]Vol-225 Book-1 Page [9]
15/07/2013 [Order of Business (Resumed)] While we are on the subject of water services, I ask the Leader to arrange a debate on this subject because I would add to that subject the issue of the addition of fluoride to our water supply, which I find extraordinary. This is the only country in Europe, together w...Vol-225 Book-1 Page [9]

15/07/2013 [Order of Business (Resumed)] We will probably be told that tomorrow night.

15/07/2013 [Order of Business (Resumed)] I will change it to "allegation".

15/07/2013 [Order of Business (Resumed)] Would it be possible to ask the Minister concerned, Deputy Richard Bruton, to come before the Seanad prior to the commencement of Report Stage, which I understand will begin tomorrow night at 7 p.m.? He could come some time today or tomorrow. I want the figures quanti...Vol-225 Book-1 Page [10]

15/07/2013 [Order of Business (Resumed)] I support my Senator colleagues regarding the mistruth being promulgated by the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Deputy Richard Bruton, on possible savings following the abolition of the Seanad. The accounts for this House show that it costs €8.8 million. ...Vol-225 Book-1 Page [13]
15/07/2013 [Order of Business (Resumed)] I wish to comment on the views expressed on the proposed abolition of the Seanad.
