Snippet Contents:

A measured debate on this matter with the Minister for Justice and Equality would be appropriate but not a knee-jerk debate today when there are ongoing operations and it is not yet clear what will be the outcome in terms of whether Mr. Brockwell will be returned to Britain to serve the remainder of his sentence. Fianna Fáil tabled an amendment on this issue yesterday also and I felt it was most inappropriate to be playing political football with this issue.
Will the Leader see whether the Employment Equality (Amendment) (No. 2) Bill might resume Committee Stage in this House before Easter? We are awaiting the drafting of Government amendments to this important Bill, which will reform section 37 of the employment equality legislation to ensure teachers, in particular, will not face any discrimination by their employer on grounds of sexual orientation. It is a very important Bill. I was promised that it would be back before the House before Easter. We have been awaiting the resumed Committee Stage for some time now and I ask the Leader to make inquiries as to when it will be before this House.
I welcome the article in The Irish Times today by former Supreme Court judge and former Senator Catherine McGuinness on the issue of gender equality in academic employment. She notes that Professor Jane Grimson, former TCD Bryce provost, has been appointed to chair an independent task force at NUI Galway to look into this issue. With other colleagues in this House, I had raised this issue in the light of the successful case taken by Micheline Sheehy Skeffington against NUI Galway. Therefore, I very much welcome the fact that NUI Galway is taking proactive steps to address issues of gender inequality at third level.
