  • Pringle Calls for Independent Observers on Super Trawlers – Thomas Pringle TD
    Exclusive Fisheries zone including their activities and characteristics Under the Sea Fisheries and Maritime Jurisdiction Act 2006 all operational issues of this nature concerning sea fisheries control are as a matter of law exclusively for the Sea Fisheries Protection Authority SFPA and the Naval Service As Minister I am precluded from getting involved in operational matters including in relation to law enforcement In relation to the overall framework for fisheries control in the EU in October 2009 a new regulation dealing with fisheries controls was adopted Council Regulation 1224 2009 establishes a Community control system for ensuring compliance with the rules of the common fisheries policy Control and inspection is now focused where it is most effective through an approach based on systematic risk analysis Inspection procedures are standardised and harmonised for all stages in the market chain including transport and marketing The Control Regulations were introduced so that there is a common EU level playing field and to provide for an effective range of controls across EU waters One of the key elements of the reformed Common Fisheries Policy is the introduction of a phased ban on the discarding of unwanted fish catches The first part of the landing obligation the ban on discarding pelagic stocks such as herring and mackerel came into effect on the 1 st of January 2015 The EU Commission adopted a Delegated Regulation EU No 1393 2014 on 20 October 2014 which implements a discard plan for certain pelagic fisheries in north western waters in line with the recommendation of the North West Waters Member States Group A Control Experts Group from the North West Waters Regional Group of Member States has been set up and has produced a draft set of recommendations on additional control measures for the pelagic sector in respect of the landing obligation in pelagic fisheries These draft recommendations have been sent to the Pelagic Advisory Council and the North Western Advisory Council in accordance with article 18 of the CFP basic regulation EU No 1380 2013 for their observations When these are received the draft recommendations will be considered by the NWW Member States Group A meeting of this Group is planned for the 25 th November and the control report will be considered The measures recommended by the Control experts cover a range of actions including the use of cameras or other remote sensing equipment on all large pelagic vessels both freezer vessels and our own RSW Refrigerated Seawater Tank vessels to support the landing obligation It also recommends control observers for individual trips to address dynamically assessed risks of a more transient nature It is important to note that the flag Member State would be responsible for placing control observers on its vessels I consider that any strengthened control measures must provide tools to both the flag Member State and the coastal Member State to better monitor and control fishing activities We will continue to work closely with the North Western Waters Member States to identify the

  • No Date for Re-Opening of North West Herring – Thomas Pringle TD
    of VIa south and a 15 share of VIa north The TAC for 2015 for VIa south is zero A mid year review of this stock was undertaken following new advice and a benchmarking exercise by ICES and the advice for 2015 was not changed This ICES advice for 2016 is for a zero TAC for both areas and recommends a re building plan There is within the advice the possibility of a reduced TAC that would be applicable to both areas The added complexity is that while it is scientifically acknowledged that there are two separate herring stocks it has not proven possible to provide separate scientific advice Work is ongoing on this issue but it may take some time before it is possible to supply such separate advice The European Commission has yet to make any proposal for North West Herring for 2016 I will be arguing strongly in advance of the December Fisheries Council that a small commercial catch for both areas is justified by the scientific advice and such a quota will facilitate the ongoing work to separate the two stocks I am also fully supportive of a rebuilding plan as recommended by ICES and supported by the Pelagic Advisory Council Consequently with regard to this stock my first priority is to try and convince the EU Commission that a small commercial catch is justified In that regard I will be working closely with the UK Minister in particular who has a strong interest in the VIa north stock and I will be seeking to reach agreement on the allocations between the areas for any such TAC If I am successful in that endeavour and given that the TACs and associated quotas are likely to be modest I will be considering the allocation of this quota

  • China’s Ban Causing Difficulties for Live Crab Irish Exporters – Thomas Pringle TD
    number of Irish sea fishing boats providing this product to up to 8 seafood export companies On 29 October 2015 the Chinese food import authorities wrote to the Irish embassy in Beijing expressing concern about the levels of the heavy metal cadmium in live crabs coming from Ireland which the authorities determined exceeded Chinese limits and requested that Ireland ensure only crabs which meet the Chinese standards for cadmium be permitted for export I am advised that the UK is currently experiencing similar challenges European legislation sets a limit of 0 5 mg kg for white muscle meat from the limbs only however the Chinese authorities are currently applying this limit to all crabmeat I understand that crabs take in cadmium from the environment and it builds up in the brown meat of the crab to much higher levels than the white meat In view of the Chinese request to meet this standard for live crabs the SFPA notified Irish crab exporters of the new monitoring requirements and the difficulties this would pose for providing health certificates for live Irish crabs intended for export to China As part of efforts to support the trade of compliant safe seafood a Memorandum of Understanding is in place with the Chinese import authorities which allows for technical dialogue With the support of the Marine Institute and the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade the SFPA has sought to raise this issue with the Chinese authorities in recent weeks The SFPA is leading on a technical response to the communication from the Chinese authorities before the end of November with a view to meaningful dialogue around reconsideration of the tissues to which this limit applies To date there have been two meetings with representatives of the crab industry to facilitate exploration of a range

  • No Recognition of Cross-Border Shared Parenting – Thomas Pringle TD
    with him or her The primary claimant may if he or she so wishes relinquish it to a secondary claimant with whom the child resides for at least 100 days in the year In relation to families living in Northern Ireland I would draw the Deputy s attention to the fact that in order to qualify for any credit provided for in the tax code of the State an individual has to be within the charge to tax in the State A person who is resident in Northern Ireland will not in general have an entitlement to the tax credit in question and as a consequence will not be in a position to relinquish such a credit to any secondary claimant who may be resident in the State In the majority of cases entitlement to the single person child carer credit is not in any way dependent on the payment of child benefit under Part 4 of the Social Welfare Consolidation Act 2005 In allocating the SPCCC the person who receives the child benefit payment was used as the initial indicator by the Revenue Commissioners to identify the individuals most likely to qualify for the new credit but it is important to point out that in the majority of cases the child benefit payment is not the determining fact in deciding who can claim the new credit The credit will in the first place go to the person who cares for the child for most of the year However subsection 2 a of section 462B provides for the particular circumstance where a child is the subject of a court order relating to custody and under that order the child resides with each parent for an equal part of the year of assessment In those circumstances the subsection provides that the
