  • Thomas Introducing his Economic, Social and Cultural Rights Bill 2014 – Thomas Pringle TD
    due to respond by July of that year Nearly a year later we are still waiting for a response from the Government to proactively address the status of these rights Political will extends to the current Government too The Labour Party introduced two Private Members Bills on this issue one by Deputy Ruairí Quinn in 2000 and the second more recent one by Deputy Kevin Humphreys in 2012 Prevailing myths and misconceptions about economic social and cultural rights combined with a lack of real political will have hindered their application in Ireland but these misconceptions do not stand up The idea that ESC rights are only aspirations and not intended to be part of our judicial system is misconceived Decisions in courts in other countries have proven time and again that these rights are legally enforceable These rights have been recognised through a wide range of legal systems found but not limited to Finland Germany Latvia Portugal Argentina South Africa India Brazil Kenya Colombia and Mexico Rights currently protected such as freedom of expression and the right to privacy are as broadly worded as economic social and cultural rights but this has not prevented the courts from adjudicating these issues Another misconception is that ESC rights would threaten the separation of powers do not belong in the courts and should be left to the Legislature to execute The fear is that elected governments and parliaments would not be free to allocate resources as they see fit The concern extends to the belief that judges would be extending their role if these rights had to be defended in court and that policy making should be left to the elected policy makers the Government However a large body of case law on ESC rights has emerged from countries such as South Africa and shows that courts have remained conscious of their role when adjudicating ESC rights claims A reasonableness doctrine was incorporated and has been held in court proceedings A third myth is that the State would not have the necessary resources to enforce ESC rights whereas it may for civil and political rights This is misleading Currently civil and political rights may require expenditure of resources such as court costs policing and the provision of legal aid Many ESC rights would save the Exchequer costs such as the prevention of forced evictions A fourth myth is that civil and political and ESC rights impose different sets of obligations and that ESC rights are consistently defined as positive rights requiring the State to act to achieve the enjoyment of these rights Again this is not accurate This Bill does not propose a cure for all social ills This will not happen overnight and we have to be reasonable These rights may not translate into an Act a statutory instrument or even a circular but will compel decision makers to vindicate these rights as far as they can There is an underlining fear that these rights if implemented would bankrupt the nation or

  • Thomas Calls for Moratorium on On-Shore Wind Farming – Thomas Pringle TD
    Energy to implement a moratorium on On Shore Wind Farming until all other alternative energy sources have been explored A moratorium on on shore wind farms is the only way to force the Government to focus on other options while also preserving communities across the country During the exchange in the Dáil last week Pringle stated that there has been a dominant focus of renewable energy on wind farming in the past decade but technology has moved on and is showing progress in other areas such as biomass which could create sustainable local indigenous jobs in counties like Donegal Pringle goes on to say that the Government and Airtricity plan to spend over 4 2 billion to upgrade electricity infrastructure solely to accommodate industrial wind farms A fraction of this money about 400m could be used to convert Money Point to run off wood biomass which would meet our Kyoto and EU targets in one go Responding to Minister McHugh in the Dáil Pringle says despite ongoing consultations communities continue to carry the costs of industrial wind farming and even while communities may get a dividend from such investment in the future they will still disproportionately carry the burden of the 4 2 billion investment when it is passed on to the consumers ENDS Be Sociable Share Previous Story Better Energy Homes New Higher Grants Announced by SEAI Next Story Renewable Heat Incentive RHI to be in Place by 2016 Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published Required fields are marked Name Email Website Comment About admin Contact Info Killybegs Constituency Office Connolly House Bridge Street Killybegs Co Donegal 074 97 41880 thomas pringle oir ie Latest News Look out for my General Election 2016 newsletter February 11 2016 12 59 pm DONEGAL NOW Donegal
