    200m in delayed payments Reports today reveal that over the past year there has been a 75 increase in outstanding basic payments to farmers This is being compounded by the fact that there are 15 000 payments under the Areas of Natural Constraints scheme still outstanding I am now calling on the Minister to expedite these payments to ensure that farmers can manage cash flow and income volatility issues Every day I and other colleagues receive calls from frustrated farmers wondering when they will get their payments informing us that they have not been told to date of any difficulty with their payment Many of them are under serious financial strain and are dependent on these payments to ensure that the bills are paid Minister Coveney appears to have no understanding of the hardship that the delay in payments is causing Time and again he has boasted of advancing payments However this is no good if large numbers of farmers receive no payment due to minor queries on their applications These latest figures highlight what I have being saying for a long time There will likely to be a major underspend under the Rural Development Programme which will become more apparent in the coming months This untrustworthy government continues to leave farmers and rural communities behind No spinning can untangle this Leenane and Maam Ambulance Steering Group by Christina Nic Dhonnacha Nov 5 2015 Press Releases On a radio programme on Tuesday 27 th of October 2015 Sean Kyne T D stated that the Minister for Health had indicated that he was willing to meet a delegation from Leenane and Maam Ambulance Steering Group I have to say that I find this statement extraordinary in view of the fact that on the 21 st of October 2015 the Minister wrote to me in the following terms Dear Éamon Thank you for your recent letter inviting me to meet a delegation from Leenane and Maam Ambulance Steering Group to discuss the lack of ambulance services in Connemara I have passed your correspondence on to Martin Dunne Director the National Ambulance Service in the HSE for his consideration and direct reply to you Yours sincerely Leo Varadkar T D Minister for Health I have now contacted the Minister as a matter of urgency asking that he clarify whether he is indeed willing to meet a delegation as stated by Sean Kyne T D and if he is why he wrote to me saying that he had passed on the letter to Martin Dunne Director of the National Ambulance Service rather than indicating to me that he was indeed willing to meet a delegation This matter needs clarification as there is an absolute duty on the Minister to treat all public elected representatives equally and to also give them accurate facts TAMS2 may provide solution to shed conversion costs Ó Cuív by Christina Nic Dhonnacha Nov 5 2015 Press Releases 30th October 2015 Fianna Fáil Agriculture Spokesperson Éamon Ó Cuív has welcomed clarification

    consideration and direct reply to you Yours sincerely Leo Varadkar T D Minister for Health I have now contacted the Minister as a matter of urgency asking that he clarify whether he is indeed willing to meet a delegation as stated by Sean Kyne T D and if he is why he wrote to me saying that he had passed on the letter to Martin Dunne Director of the National Ambulance Service rather than indicating to me that he was indeed willing to meet a delegation This matter needs clarification as there is an absolute duty on the Minister to treat all public elected representatives equally and to also give them accurate facts TAMS2 may provide solution to shed conversion costs Ó Cuív by Christina Nic Dhonnacha Nov 5 2015 Press Releases 30th October 2015 Fianna Fáil Agriculture Spokesperson Éamon Ó Cuív has welcomed clarification that grants to convert existing sheds to slatted units is covered under the TAMS2 Scheme The Galway West TD sought clarification on the issue from the Agriculture Minister Simon Coveney who has confirmed that funding is covered under the TAMS2 programme Deputy Ó Cuív commented I had been contacted by a number of farmers who were unsure if they could apply for a grant to convert existing hay sheds and other similar sheds to slatted units Having submitted questions to the Agriculture Minister he has now confirmed that in the case of existing loose houses grant aid is available for installing both slurry tanks and slats This will be of major interest to many farmers as the conversion of sheds could prove a much more cost economic way of converting sheds than the building of new sheds It could also in certain circumstances be easier to get planning permission for a conversion rather than a new build I would encourage farmers thinking of taking up this option to apply for the TAMS2 scheme without delay to ensure you comply with the specifications laid out under the scheme However the grant could provide an ideal solution for farmers who want to extend their available space without having to construct new buildings Beef farmers reluctant to sign up to Beef Genomics Scheme Ó Cuív by Christina Nic Dhonnacha Nov 5 2015 Press Releases 30th October 2015 Fianna Fáil Agriculture Spokesperson Éamon Ó Cuív is putting renewed pressure on the Agriculture Minister to review the current Beef Data Genomics Scheme New figures released to the Galway West TD reveal that almost two thirds of farmers have not submitted the relevant data to qualify for the programme Deputy Ó Cuív explained Following a series of questions Minister Coveney has confirmed that only 10 542 herd owners have submitted genotype samples to the laboratory More than 27 000 farmers applied for the scheme but many have not followed up with the required lab and paperwork Not only has the Minister failed to meet his own target of 35 000 farmers on board with the scheme those who have applied are

    and open way People were deprived of their liberty had to work for no wages and were part of what could be called at the very least a Dickensian system that unfortunately existed too long in our society It is important therefore that we deal with this issue and recognise that the fundamental human rights and freedoms that are fundamental to the standards in our society were denied I hope that next week will bring closure for the people who have suffered and a recognition by the Government and society that this issue will be dealt with even if it is late in the day If it is dealt with in that way next week if an apology is given and if there is a comprehensive response to the report taking account of the long meeting the Taoiseach and the Tánaiste had with the victims yesterday I will acknowledge that although it was not handled in a very sensitive manner last week the important thing is not to be partisan about it All Members should agree to work together and agree that this is a priority action If that means we must prioritise resources which is always a hard decision that must be done Mar adúirt mé is dóigh liom gur ceist an tábhachtach í seo Ach ba mhaith liom ceist chomhthreomhar leí a ardú Is í sin sa sochaí ina bhfuil muid is cinnte go bhfuil cearta daoine á shéanadh Is fada mé ag labhairt faoi seo Ní mar a chéile iad ach de bharr nach bhfuil siad mar a chéile ceapann daoine go bhfuil sé ceart go leor neamhaird a dhéanamh There is another issue I wish to raise which is not in any way equivalent because every one of these circumstances is unique The excuse for having unfairness is using past precedent However while I accept it is not the same one issue that always concerns me is the attitude in our society towards prisoners and detention and the societal attitude that anybody who advocates for somebody who is in detention is in some way condoning people breaking the law I do not condone people breaking the law but I do not believe that gives any right to society to have anything other than the highest prison standards Over many years we have tolerated overcrowded prisons and conditions in prisons that are unsatisfactory We are also creating an attitude in society that those who question that should be questioned as to why they raise the issue I fear that 20 years hence when people correct our copybook some of these issues could be the ones brought to the fore I am very concerned about the structure of the society we have created where children are still treated very poorly in many communities We know for example that children go to school hungry every day and that we have created ghetto societies through the planning laws That creates a new type of disadvantage and just because it is

    new credit line which has been announced by the European Commission and the European Investment Bank The EU financial credit mechanism aims to help ease access to finance for farmers and other rural businesses in EU member states Deputy Ó Cuív commented We welcome any initiative at European level that will help Irish farmers secure an increased credit line The government must immediately prioritise the implementation of this new EU financial instrument so that farmers across the country can draw down these funds It is vital that this funding source is used for new investments to generate jobs and growth in the Irish rural economy in the years ahead The fund has the potential to regenerate the agriculture industry by encouraging young people back into the sector It can also be used to help finance rural start ups and agri enterprises which are vitally needed in the economic recovery of the rural Ireland Over the past four years Fine Gael and Labour have set about dismantling a wide range of programmes and initiatives in rural Ireland which had been established by the previous administration It is now more important than ever that this new EU funding model is urgently implemented

  • Minister fails to get to grips with Aquaculture licences – Ó Cuív | Éamon Ó Cuív TD
    for shellfish licences have been processed There are now 61 fin fish licences awaiting decision almost double the number that was outstanding when Minister Coveney arrived into the Department Thirty four finfish aquaculture applications have been lodged since then but only 5 decisions have been made It is time for the Minister to start making decisions and to stop putting this matter on the long finger He recently announced that he has undertaken to commission a review of the existing aquaculture licensing system He has promised that this will include all of the stakeholders involved and will identify the current shortcomings and bottlenecks legislative resource and logistical so that the necessary changes can be made as a matter of priority I have been pressing the Minister for three years to do this The fact that he is only initiating this review months before a General Election speaks volumes about the importance he attaches to this issue I want to see a transparent open and efficient applications and assessment process put in place so that licences can be granted or refused in a timely manner and to ensure that the huge delays that have developed under this Minister are significantly reduced
