    then the couple are not entitled to the Supplementary Welfare Assistance Payment leaving families waiting for a decision unable to pay for bills expenses and so on if she views a partial suspension as more appropriate during a claim review and if she will make a statement on the matter Thomas Pringle For ORAL answer on Wednesday 6th May 2015 R E P L Y I understand that this question relates to cases of seasonal workers where entitlement to jobseekers benefit ceases and the person then makes a claim for jobseekers allowance I wish to advise the Deputy that jobseekers claims are on average awarded within two weeks of the date of application however delays can arise where there is a difficulty in obtaining information in relation to specific claims In order to minimise any delays in the case of individuals transferring from job seekers benefit to job seekers allowance it is the practice that the customer is issued with an application form for job seekers allowance six weeks before their claim to job seekers benefit expires The supplementary welfare allowance SWA scheme is the safety net within the overall welfare system and provides assistance to eligible people in the State whose means are insufficient to meet their needs and those of their dependants SWA may be payable to customers awaiting the outcome of a claim or an appeal for a primary social welfare payment subject to satisfying the conditions of the scheme including a means test Income received by a spouse or partner from employment is taken into account when assessing entitlement to SWA If the Deputy has concerns regarding a particular case he should bring the details to the attention of the Department Be Sociable Share Previous Story Childcare Costs too High for Lone Parents Next Story Detailed

  • Childcare Costs too High for Lone Parents – Thomas Pringle TD
    carers of their children and are unable to afford childcare and if she will make a statement on the matter Thomas Pringle For ORAL answer on Wednesday 6th May 2015 R E P L Y It is expected that in July the majority of lone parents who make the transition from the one parent family payment to a jobseeker s payment will be eligible for the jobseeker s transitional payment as their youngest child will be under 14 years of age The jobseeker s transitional payment exempts lone parents from the normal jobseeker s conditionality of having to be available for and genuinely seeking full time employment The jobseeker s transitional payment also enables a lone parent to work part time without restriction provided they satisfy the means test and to participate in education while receiving this payment This allows these customers to balance their caring responsibilities while supporting them to engage in employment or education should they wish to participate Recipients of the jobseeker s transitional payment can also apply for the SUSI grant and if eligible this grant is not assessed as means by the department providing the maximum benefit to customers from that financial support which may help towards childcare costs The Department of Children and Youth Affairs provides subsidised childcare for customers on Solas or education and training boards courses under the childcare education and training support programme The Department of Education and Skills provide a wide range of flexible education and training options including online options Online courses delivered by Solas are designed to give a flexible response to the specific skills needs of individuals who require training interventions with certification to assist them to re enter the labour market Courses are available free of charge to unemployed clients Be Sociable Share Previous Story Thomas

  • Recreational Blue-Fin Tuna in Ireland – Thomas Pringle TD
    background let me say that Atlantic bluefin tuna is a highly regulated species with annual catch limits set by the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas ICCAT based on scientific advice A management plan was put in place by ICCAT in 2007 to address the alarming depletion in stock levels This resulted in greatly reduced annual catch limits in the Mediterranean and Eastern Atlantic Ocean in an effort to rebuild stocks Within the EU quota shares were allocated over ten years ago to Member States based on track record Ireland which did not have a track record of fishing for bluefin tuna does not have a quota We have access to a small by catch quota for Bluefin tuna in our pelagic fisheries only However this by catch quota is also available to other Member States and cannot be used for recreational and or sport fisheries The unequivocal advice we have received from the EU Commission is that a recreational fishery for bluefin tuna is not legally possible in the absence of a national bluefin tuna quota We do not have such a quota and it is extremely unlikely that we could obtain one as it would involve reducing the share of the Total Allowable Catch of those Member States that do have quota and for whom bluefin is an important commercial fishery There would be no support from any quarter for any action by Ireland that might lead to an increase in bluefin mortality My Department has for some time been exploring if there may be a means of securing support at EU and ICCAT level for the introduction of a tag and release scientific scheme In that context we have been in correspondence with the Department of Communications Energy and Natural Resources DCENR which has responsibility for angling and the EU Commission with regard to the possibility of a tag and release fishing programme for Bluefin that would not impact mortality and would contribute to scientific knowledge We have also requested that Department s views on the specific proposal received from the Irish Big Game Angling Association in this regard For there to be any possibility of such a tag and release programme an agreement would first be required within the EU and then an attempt could be made to change ICCAT rules that would permit a possible tag and release programme However before any case could be made to the EU Commission there are a number of legal and technical issues which will require further examination and clarification For instance a detailed technical analysis would be required of how such a possible tag and release scheme might work possible scope of the scheme in terms of seasons and numbers how fish are handled etc It would also be necessary to identify changes that would be required to ICCAT and EU Regulations My Department will continue to liaise closely with DCENR and relevant stakeholders on this matter to consider who would be in a position to
