02/07/2015 [Bills] Debate resumed on amendment No. 4:
In page 5, line 8, after “1996;” to insert the following:

02/07/2015 [Bills] It has come to my attention over the past few days that in college accommodation consisting of one kitchen with possibly eight to nine rooms, those in charge of this accommodation have sent letters looking for a down payment of €130 from each student. There is a charge of €260 for a househo...Vol-885 Book-3 Page [828]
02/07/2015 [Bills] I want to speak on amendment No. 21 and the Minister's proposals to force people to register, regardless of whether they are the occupier. Other speakers have outlined the difficulty this creates for tenants who are obliged to register with Irish Water within 20 days of this legislation bei...Vol-885 Book-3 Page [828]
02/07/2015 [Bills] It shows also that this Government has not got a mandate to continue with the implementation of Irish Water and with the imposition of the second tax on citizens. It has a huge impact on tenants and potential tenants. In cases where householders decide not to register with Irish Water, bei...Vol-885 Book-3

02/07/2015 [Bills] You do not.[Coppinger, Ruth]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [829]
02/07/2015 [Bills] I very much do, Deputy Coppinger. I listened in my office with incredulity to some of the comments. Deputy Ó Cuív started talking about "Lanigan's Ball". Deputy Ó Cuív reminds me of Bobby in "Dallas"; he woke up from a dream after 14 years of government. You sat at the Cabinet table, Dep...Vol-885 Book-3 Page [829]
02/07/2015 [Bills] Not for 14 years. Check your facts.[Ó Cuív, Éamon]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [829]
02/07/2015 [Bills] You were part of a government for 14 years and you sat there and you come in here now. It is extraordinary. You come in here every day and I swear to God you would think you never did anything wrong in your life. You have an answer for everything now whereas when you were in government loo...Vol-885 Book-3 Page [829]
02/07/2015 [Bills] Is that why you are doing it?[Ó Cuív, Éamon]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [829]

02/07/2015 [Bills] You did not actually succeed.[Coppinger, Ruth]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [829]
02/07/2015 [Bills] Are you speaking to the amendment?[Byrne, Catherine]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [829]
02/07/2015 [Bills] I am. The only panacea Deputy Coppinger has is to boycott, to oppose and not to pay. I can tell her that 70% of people have taken a principled stand-----[Buttimer, Jerry]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [829]
02/07/2015 [Bills] Is the Acting Chairman sure that the Deputy is speaking to the amendment?[Ó Cuív, Éamon]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [829]

02/07/2015 [Bills] Deputy Ó Cuív you come in here every day with this stunt of "The Minister is giving a speech and we will call a quorum". Stop playing politics. Ye talked on the first day of the new Dáil about new politics. The people outside do not care about a quorum or do not care about the fact the Mi...Vol-885 Book-3 Page [830]
02/07/2015 [Bills] You should care about them-----[Ó Cuív, Éamon]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [830]

02/07/2015 [Bills] You have an obligation to care about the rules we have made to run this place.[Ó Cuív, Éamon]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [830]
02/07/2015 [Bills] I represent the people of my constituency every single day and I will not take a lecture from people inside here on the Opposition benches who profess to have a majority of knowledge or empathy or sincerity about whatever. They do not have it. The rest of us live in the real world too and ...Vol-885 Book-3 Page [830]
02/07/2015 [Bills] Keep going, you are on a roll.[Ó Cuív, Éamon]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [830]
02/07/2015 [Bills] Yes, I am on a roll, because I live in the real world and you cannot take the facts that your party in government was the party of a few. It might not have been your personal ideology-----[Buttimer, Jerry]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [830]
02/07/2015 [Bills] That is not true. I take serious exception to that. The people in my constituency elected me like they elected you in the last election. It was not a few; it was the many. I am delighted that Deputy Brian Walsh is here in the Chamber because he knows as a fact, which you do not seem to k...Vol-885 Book-3 Page [830]

02/07/2015 [Bills] I will say again what I said, Deputy Ó Cuív, as you did not hear what I said. I said it may not have been your ideology but Fianna Fáil represented the few.[Buttimer, Jerry]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [831]
02/07/2015 [Bills] You said "you represented the few".[Ó Cuív, Éamon]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [831]
02/07/2015 [Bills] I did not say "you". I was not referring to you. I was referring to you as in Fianna Fáil, not to you personally.[Buttimer, Jerry]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [831]
02/07/2015 [Bills] I am part of Fianna Fáil. Therefore in saying that I - you - included me and I do not. You are saying that I am not part of Fianna Fáil. I ask you to withdraw that as well.[Ó Cuív, Éamon]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [831]
02/07/2015 [Bills] I understand that. I have clarified my remarks.[Buttimer, Jerry]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [831]
02/07/2015 [Bills] If you said "you" and you meant Fianna Fáil, you are saying it included me. If you do not mean me, you have to be consistent in your use of language-----[Ó Cuív, Éamon]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [831]

02/07/2015 [Bills] You did.[Ó Cuív, Éamon]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [833]
02/07/2015 [Bills] The record will show I did not. I said it might not be your ideology. Deputy Walsh concurred with me.[Buttimer, Jerry]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [833]
02/07/2015 [Bills] You said it post facto.[Ó Cuív, Éamon]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [833]
02/07/2015 [Bills] I did not say it post facto. I am disappointed with Deputy Ó Cuív's attitude.
The infrastructure being put in place by Irish Water is a necessary one. I will quote the example of the case of Cork city where the lives and homes of thousands of people were destroyed in two major floods in ...

02/07/2015 [Bills] It is important that the legislation is passed.

02/07/2015 [Bills] I would like her to do that if she could.[Buttimer, Jerry]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [834]
02/07/2015 [Bills] What amendment is the Deputy speaking about?[Coppinger, Ruth]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [834]
02/07/2015 [Bills] As legislators, Members of the House have a responsibility and a duty to uphold the law of the land and the men and women who work as members of An Garda Síochána.[Buttimer, Jerry]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [834]
02/07/2015 [Bills] That is rich coming from the Deputy.[Coppinger, Ruth]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [834]
02/07/2015 [Bills] As someone who spent all my life as a public servant in school teaching, I am very proud to be part of the public service. I hope Deputy Coppinger would condemn the treatment of members of An Garda Síochána outside this House last night because that has no place in a civilised democracy. T...Vol-885 Book-3 Page [834]

02/07/2015 [Bills] You should be conducting the debate in an impartial manner-----[Coppinger, Ruth]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [835]

02/07/2015 [Bills] I do not take lightly to that remark. I am a very fair Chair whenever I am here. I ask the Deputy to sit down.[Byrne, Catherine]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [835]
02/07/2015 [Bills] May I speak?[Coppinger, Ruth]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [835]

02/07/2015 [Bills] No. There is no point of order. Everybody who has spoken-----[Byrne, Catherine]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [835]
02/07/2015 [Bills] Okay. There is no point of order. That is really impartial.[Coppinger, Ruth]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [835]
02/07/2015 [Bills] That is not fair.[Kelly, Alan]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [835]
02/07/2015 [Bills] That is not fair to the Chair.[Carey, Joe]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [835]
02/07/2015 [Bills] Everybody who spoke previously from Deputy Stanley onwards since I came into the Chair, have strayed from the amendments one way or another. I have never intervened. If we want to call each other names, that is fine. I do my best here as Chair. If it does not suit the Deputy, she should ...Vol-885 Book-3 Page [835]

02/07/2015 [Bills] We will get back to the amendments. Amendment No. 21 states:

02/07/2015 [Bills] Is the Deputy on the pitch?[Carey, Joe]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [836]
02/07/2015 [Bills] Where I am is that I think this should have been handled in a better way. We have an arbitrary cut-off date for the grant. The first thing the Minister could do would be to get his colleague and party leader, the Tánaiste and Minister for Social Protection, to say that it is not too late t...Vol-885 Book-3 Page [836]
02/07/2015 [Bills] First, he could get rid of the arbitrary decision made by the Tánaiste and Minister for Social Protection that if one registers now or in a week's time, one will not receive the grant. That is unnecessary and stupid. Second, he should give a very clear directive that, rather than saying a....Vol-885 Book-3
02/07/2015 [Bills] Hear, hear.[Kelly, Alan]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [837]
02/07/2015 [Bills] The Minister is adding to the problem. He knows that this is going to happen and is planning for it to happen. Why does he not do something about it?
I have tabled amendment No. 11 to amendment No. 21. The way the Bill is being produced is unusual. I have never seen it done in this way...
Vol-885 Book-3 Page [837]
02/07/2015 [Bills] I acknowledge the very positive and constructive contribution made by my colleague from west Galway, Deputy Éamon Ó Cuív. On the interaction earlier between him and Deputy Jerry Buttimer, I have to say Deputy Éamon Ó Cuív has always acted on behalf of all the interests of his constituency,....Vol-885 Book-3 Page [838]
02/07/2015 [Bills] They have gone to a press conference.[Stanley, Brian]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [838]
02/07/2015 [Bills] Many fair-minded people have had reasonable concerns about water charges. The amendment about the Bill’s effect on landlord and tenant relations is an example of these concerns. Deputy Brian Stanley mentioned the metering issue. There are provisions in the leases signed by landlords and t...Vol-885 Book-3 Page [838]
02/07/2015 [Bills] There is a cohort of militant protestors, guided and incited by some of the Members present in the House, who have no regard for rule or for reason and do not represent the majority of people, either for or against the introduction of these charges. We saw it here yesterday at Leinster Hous...Vol-885 Book-3
02/07/2015 [Bills] It is scandalous.[Kelly, Alan]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [838]
02/07/2015 [Bills] That is outrageous behaviour for Members of the Houses of the Oireachtas to have to endure. This kind of animalistic and anti-democratic behaviour that we have witnessed at the gates of our own national Parliament is similar to events that befell the Taoiseach, the Tánaiste, the President a...Vol-885 Book-3 Page [838]
02/07/2015 [Bills] Was that not Fine Gael?[Murphy, Paul]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [839]
02/07/2015 [Bills] The rhetoric of certain Deputies has poured petrol on the flames of the demonstrations, which has been nothing short of a disgrace. Describing the scenes faced by electoral representatives here yesterday as peaceful protest is like describing a lover's tiff as the Trojan war.[Walsh, Brian]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [839]
02/07/2015 [Bills] Will the Deputy stick to the amendment?[Byrne, Catherine]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [839]

02/07/2015 [Bills] When is he off to Greece?[Kelly, Alan]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [839]
02/07/2015 [Bills] The fact is, as Deputy Buttimer said, they have refused to condemn these actions of violence in a manner that would seem brass-necked to even the Teflon terrorists in the House.[Walsh, Brian]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [839]
02/07/2015 [Bills] Sorry, Deputy. Could you speak to the amendments, please?[Byrne, Catherine]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [839]
02/07/2015 [Bills] I will.[Walsh, Brian]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [839]
02/07/2015 [Bills] That is unparliamentary language. I think he referred to me as a terrorist.[Murphy, Paul]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [839]
02/07/2015 [Bills] Sorry, I am chairing the sitting and I do not need any more interruptions.[Byrne, Catherine]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [839]

02/07/2015 [Bills] Meanwhile Sinn Féin, not for the first time-----[Walsh, Brian]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [839]
02/07/2015 [Bills] Will the Deputy please withdraw the statement about terrorists?[Murphy, Paul]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [839]
02/07/2015 [Bills] -----has demonstrated remarkable hypocrisy throughout the extensive debate on this issue.[Walsh, Brian]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [839]
02/07/2015 [Bills] I was repeatedly referred to as ISIS. The Deputy, I think, is referring to me as a terrorist.[Murphy, Paul]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [839]
02/07/2015 [Bills] I never mentioned that term at all.[Walsh, Brian]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [839]
02/07/2015 [Bills] He referred to Sinn Féin. I am the only Sinn Féin Deputy in the House at the moment, so he referred to me as a Teflon terrorist.[Stanley, Brian]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [839]
02/07/2015 [Bills] I am only beginning my remarks in regard to Sinn Féin. Anything I have said heretofore-----[Walsh, Brian]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [839]
02/07/2015 [Bills] I ask him to withdraw that. I am an elected Member of the House. He cannot refer to me as a Teflon terrorist.[Stanley, Brian]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [840]
02/07/2015 [Bills] Will Deputy Stanley sit down?[Byrne, Catherine]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [840]
02/07/2015 [Bills] I never made any reference whatsoever to Sinn Féin. Am I to be allowed to continue?[Walsh, Brian]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [840]
02/07/2015 [Bills] I ask Deputy Stanley to sit down and I will deal with the comments.[Byrne, Catherine]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [840]
02/07/2015 [Bills] I ask him to withdraw the remark.[Stanley, Brian]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [840]
02/07/2015 [Bills] I thank Deputy Stanley and Deputy Murphy. I will try my best to chair the sitting. I ask Deputy Walsh to refer to the amendments and not comment on anything beyond that. That would be very helpful. Thank you.[Byrne, Catherine]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [840]
02/07/2015 [Bills] I believe the debate on this amendment is instilling a huge amount of fear in the minds of vulnerable people. The Members opposite have correctly described many tenants throughout the country as being some of the most vulnerable people in society. However, some of the language and some of ...Vol-885 Book-3 Page [840]
02/07/2015 [Bills] The Deputy does not have a clue.[Stanley, Brian]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [840]
02/07/2015 [Bills] Deputy Stanley is the one who does not have a clue if he does not agree with that.[Walsh, Brian]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [840]
02/07/2015 [Bills] If we did less name calling and stuck to the amendments, it would be better.[Byrne, Catherine]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [840]
02/07/2015 [Bills] He is giving false information.[Stanley, Brian]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [840]
02/07/2015 [Bills] They already charge for water as part of a domestic rates regime that costs on average €950 per year. It is very clear. They have installed a whole plethora of water meters over the past 12 months in the North of Ireland.[Walsh, Brian]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [840]
02/07/2015 [Bills] More than 30,000. Why are they doing that?[Coffey, Paudie]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [840]
02/07/2015 [Bills] I will come back to the Deputy on that.[Stanley, Brian]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [840]
02/07/2015 [Bills] That has been extensively reported on. I will tell the House why they are doing that. They are doing it because they will be introducing a direct charge for water in Northern Ireland in the near future. Under that arrangement, the tenants of these properties in the North of Ireland will b...Vol-885 Book-3 Page [840]
02/07/2015 [Bills] Sorry, Deputy. I have asked you to speak to the amendment. You are not speaking to the amendment. I think you need to withdraw that remark. Please just speak to the amendment.[Byrne, Catherine]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [841]
02/07/2015 [Bills] He has not withdrawn the previous remark that I am a Teflon terrorist.[Stanley, Brian]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [841]

02/07/2015 [Bills] He is calling me a Teflon terrorist. I am asking the Chair to ask the Deputy to withdraw that remark.

He has shown how partitionist and...Vol-885 Book-3 Page [841]

02/07/2015 [Bills] I have not named Deputy Stanley.[Walsh, Brian]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [841]
02/07/2015 [Bills] Can I speak, please? I am not a referee. I did not hear anyone name anyone specifically but I did hear and ask the Deputy to withdraw what he said just now. I think it is wrong. Can we stick to the amendments, please, if the Deputy is going to speak?[Byrne, Catherine]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [841]
02/07/2015 [Bills] I withdraw my reference to it but that is the reality of the situation.[Walsh, Brian]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [841]

02/07/2015 [Bills] That is good. Carry on.[Stanley, Brian]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [841]
02/07/2015 [Bills] That has been widely reported and it did not require me to say it. If I was to go outside the front gate of Leinster House, if I was allowed out, if Deputy Murphy's mob was not outside the front gate, obstructing me from exiting-----[Walsh, Brian]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [841]
02/07/2015 [Bills] Is that unparliamentary? I do not have a mob. Will the Deputy withdraw the statement?[Murphy, Paul]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [841]

02/07/2015 [Bills] I do not have a mob. Will the Deputy withdraw the statement?[Murphy, Paul]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [842]
02/07/2015 [Bills] The Sinn Féin Members present are speaking out of both sides of their mouths on this issue. They have one rule in the North of Ireland and one rule down South. If their advice had been followed when this Government came to office, they would have transformed the prevailing economic crisis ...Vol-885 Book-3 Page [842]
02/07/2015 [Bills] Has the Deputy even read the amendments?[Murphy, Paul]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [842]
02/07/2015 [Bills] Sinn Féin was among those who celebrated, as did Deputy Murphy, the emergence of Syriza in Greece, a party whose obstructionist and isolationist policies somewhat mirror those of their own here in the Republic.

02/07/2015 [Bills] I do not share the concerns that Deputy Stanley has expressed in regard to metering. There are already systems in place to deal with that under existing landlord-tenant law and existing leases. I do not believe it is an issue that will cause huge concern for tenants.
I would urge tenants...
Vol-885 Book-3 Page [842]
02/07/2015 [Bills] The same will befall those who refuse to pay the water charge. A very reasonable charge has been introduced. For a single person who registers, a fee of €160 applies, minus the €100 water conservation grant, giving a net cost of €60 per year. That equates to one ATM withdrawal in Greece. ...Vol-885 Book-3

02/07/2015 [Bills] I will respond to points made by Deputies, although some of them have left the Chamber.

02/07/2015 [Bills] I will give it to the Deputy, if he gives me a chance. It is standard practice in residential leases for tenants to pay their utility bills. They include their water bills. Therefore, there is no basis on which to predict a landlord will seek to evict tenants for not paying their water bi...Vol-885 Book-3 Page [843]

I expect the model for charges in that sector to be examined ...Vol-885 Book-3 Page [844]
02/07/2015 [Bills] I wish to address a number of issues raised by Deputy Brian Walsh regarding this amendment. He is, obviously, unaware of some matters.

02/07/2015 [Bills] Deputy Stanley should hold on a moment.[Mitchell, Olivia]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [846]
02/07/2015 [Bills] Any Deputy who is elected has a mandate to represent his or her constituency and has a right to come into the Chamber.[Coffey, Paudie]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [846]

02/07/2015 [Bills] Absolutely.[Kelly, Alan]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [846]
02/07/2015 [Bills] It is unfair of the Deputy to say that about a colleague, irrespective of what party he or she is from. Given their mandate, when Members comes into the Chamber they are entitled to have their say. I ask Deputy Stanley to withdraw his comment.[Coffey, Paudie]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [846]

02/07/2015 [Bills] Deputy Stanley should refer to the Deputy by his name.[Kelly, Alan]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [846]
02/07/2015 [Bills] I fully respect that, but I refer to the manner in which it is being done. Government backbenchers run in, make a pile of false assertions to give you a bit of cover and a little breathing space.[Stanley, Brian]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [846]

02/07/2015 [Bills] That is okay. Fair enough. Someone who lived in private rented accommodation would know how difficult it is to get a deposit back. If there is any little upset at all, one will not get the deposit back.[Stanley, Brian]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [848]

02/07/2015 [Bills] All I can say is Deputy Stanley is easily distracted.[Mitchell, Olivia]Vol-885 Book-3 Page [848]
