Order of Business.

When does the Taoiseach intend to bring before the House a new electoral Bill to deal with the revision of Dáil constituencies?More Button

Will the Taoiseach explain to the House why a constituency boundaries commission has not been appointed?More Button

Is this another problem created by the Kanturk Six?More Button

So the Government do not intend to ban the burning of coal.More Button

Local Government (Planning and Development) (No. 2) Bill, 1988: Committee Stage (Resumed).

We have already debated amendment No. 13 at some length and I will respond to some of the statements made. I emphasise that this is a most important provision. It proposes an innovative way of tackl...More Button

I should like to deal with the Minister's comments this morning. He told us about bringing other legislation before the House and I should like to make two simple points in regard to that statement. ...More Button

A year and a half later.More Button

The Minister had no choice in that because he would have been taken to the European Court.More Button

As in the previous amendment we are now trying to deal with a broader problem in a confined way. I would take the very simple view on the broader issue which is that if a planning permission has been...More Button

The Deputy has missed the point. With respect, he seems to have lost sight of the fact that the Minister for Energy thinks he is the real Taoiseach for every Department of this Government. Not only h...More Button

This is a way of spreading the political manure.More Button

Private Notice Questions. - Abandonment of Cargo Vessel.

Which political party does Neptune support?More Button

Local Government (Planning and Development) (No. 2) Bill, 1988: Committee Stage (Resumed).

The issue Deputy Gilmore has raised I raised in Dublin County Council when we had the recent planning application before us in respect of the lands for which Grange Developments had been in receipt of...More Button

I appreciate that.More Button

He is just huffing and puffing about it.More Button

I would like the Minister to respond to a matter I raised during the course of the last amendment. We all assume that a compensation repayment will be triggered by the commencement of a development. ...More Button

Yes.More Button

There might be a sell on and people will make a profit from selling the land as a site with planning permission.More Button

Because in that situation the local authority would be at the loss. The people sell the land and make a profit but the local authority cannot recoup the money. There is no interest provision being tr...More Button

If a substantial profit has been made why should the local authority wait perhaps two years before the development starts?More Button

I have a problem with this which perhaps the Minister could clarify. There was an interaction between this amendment and amendment No. 24 but the Chair in his wisdom decided that they should be treate...More Button

I expressed concern about this section on Second Stage and I am pleased that the Minister has come back to us with an amendment. I am anxious to try to persuade the Minister that he should accept a ...More Button

I accept that it is good practice to set a time limit because if it is not set there will be problems. The Minister will be aware that where there is the two month rule, and there is a complicated pl...More Button

I move amendment No. 37: In page 10, subsection (1), line 8, delete “one month” and substitute “three months”. Amendment agreed to.More Button

Local Government (Planning and Development) (No. 2) Bill, 1988:Committee Stage (Resumed).

I move amendment No 40: In page 10, lines 48 and 49, to delete all words from and including “the Minister may” down to and including “he is satisfied” and substitute “the High Court may allow, the Hig...More Button

I fully accept the Minister's statement that it is not the Minister who fixes the amount of compensation. It is correct that it should not be the Minister or a court. The arbitrator would have knowle...More Button

I welcome this amendment in the context of the original Bill where I emphasised the need for an amendment of this nature. The need is more limited now because of the nature of changes we are making t...More Button

Private Members' Business. - Free Legal Aid.

I am sharing what I understand is seven minutes remaining to me with Deputy Fennell. The record of how the Government have dealt with the civil legal aid system is utterly appalling. The speech of t...More Button

Private Members' Business. - Local Government (Planning and Development) (No. 2) Bill, 1988: Committee Stage (Resumed).

I move the amendment No. 1 to amendment No. 67: Amendment to amendment No. 67 1. In the last line after “pollution” to insert “or vibration”. —Alan Shatter. Amendment to amendment agreed to. Amendment...More Button

I appreciate the fact that the Minister has taken on board these amendments. Many of the changes made in the Bill are being made in response to approaches by a number of Deputies. The Fine Gael Party...More Button

Written Answers. - Driving Licences.

Asked the minister: the reason it is taking up to seven weeks for new driving licences to be issued by Dublin Corporation from Riverside House, Dublin 7; and the advice which staff at Riverside House give to those whose ...More Button
