32. "That Dáil Éireann:

 

— condemns:

— the poor budget given to cancer care since 1997;

— the failure to extend the preventative cancer programmes to all our citizens;

— the inability of all our citizens to access radiotherapy services equally;

— the total lack of a proper oncology service; and

— the total lack of a proper cancer support service;

— declares:

— that cancer care apartheid exists in Ireland;

— that Irish citizens are dying unnecessarily because of the lack of proper cancer services as evidenced by the statistics;

— that the Government is negligent in failing to provide an adequate budget for cancer care for a disease that affects one in three and kills one in four of us; and

— that the Government is negligent in refusing to allow staff recruitment commence for the Galway Radiotherapy Unit with the result that it will be 2006 before the unit treats patients;

— notes that leaks from the imminent and long overdue Radiotherapy Report proposes even more centralisation of services with no local radiotherapy units proposed to be opened except Galway;

— further notes that local units at Waterford and Limerick would save more lives and cost less;

— demands that a proper budget be provided for cancer care by Government;

— further demands that cancer preventative services be available to all our citizens;

— further demands that equality of access to radiotherapy services be assured for all our citizens;

33. "That Dáil Éireann:

 

— condemns the decision of the Government to cancel the order for five medium lift helicopters for the Air Corps which will have serious implications for the viability of the Air Corps and the effectiveness of our search and rescue services;

— noting, in particular, that the White Paper on Defence, which was approved by the Government in February 2000, recognised the urgent equipment modernisation requirements of the Air Corps and the repeated statements from the Minister for Defence that the acquisition of these aircraft would provide a major boost for the organisation and were required to enable the Air Corps to play a pivotal role in search and rescue operations for the foreseeable future;

— expresses concern also that the cancellation may jeopardise up to 1,500 jobs at FLS Aerospace in North Dublin, as agreement had been reached to provide significant additional business for the plant as part of the contract process;

and calls on the Government to reverse the decision to cancel the order and to ensure that procedures to provide the five helicopters are re-instated without further delay."

35. "That Dáil Éireann:

 

— condemns the decision of the Football Association of Ireland to enter into an arrangement to allow the pay channel, Sky Sports, exclusive rights to televise Irish home soccer internationals;

— notes that this move will result in many fans being deprived of the opportunity of watching the matches live on television and that it is likely to result in an increase in the number of young people and children viewing the matches in pubs;

— believes that this decision represents a betrayal of the fans who have loyally supported the Irish soccer team;

— deplores the failure of the Government to use the powers given to it by the Oireachtas in the Broadcasting (Major Events Television Coverage) Act, 1999, to designate these matches and other major sporting occasions as events of major importance to society for which the right of a qualifying broadcaster to provide coverage on free television services should be provided in the public interest;

— notes that there is nothing in Irish legislation or in the EU Directive, Television Without Frontiers, to prevent the Government from acting, even at this stage;

[4 September, 2002]

 

36. "That Dáil Éireann notes:

 

— a shipment of plutonium mixed oxide was delivered to Japan in 1999 from British Nuclear Fuels Limited (BNFL) but, because crucial safety data was found to be falsified by BNFL, Japan refused to accept the fuel and it is now being returned to the United Kingdom, and

— the MOX is expected to be shipped through the Irish Sea and thus poses an unacceptable risk to the marine environment, coastline and population of Ireland;

calls on the Irish Government to:

 

— protest the shipment to the Japanese and British Governments;

— welcome the formation of a citizens’ flotilla of small yachts to peacefully express the Irish people’s opposition to the shipment;

— protest the proposed level of security as inadequate and demand an armed military escort capable of meeting any threat from terrorism accompany the shipment;

— request that the United States Administration, which must authorise the security arrangements of the transport, conduct a ‘threat assessment’ in the light of the new security situation created by the September 11th terrorist attack;

— demand that the Japanese and British Governments conduct a full, comprehensive and public environmental impact assessment in consultation with Ireland prior to the voyage;

— demand that the Japanese and British Governments consult with Ireland to formulate contingency plans and emergency preparations in case of an accident or incident;

— demand that the Japanese and British Governments accept full and unconditional liability for any and all harm to Ireland, including its marine environment, arising from the shipment and

— in the light of recent public statements by senior Japanese officials about overturning Japan’s constitutional commitment to reject nuclear weapons, request an urgent public review by the European Union member states of the proposed EURATOM-Japan Peaceful Nuclear Cooperation Agreement."

[4 September, 2002]

 

37. "That Dáil Éireann:

 

— condemns the decision of the Government to cut the allocation for Overseas Development Aid (ODA) for this year by €32 million;

— regards the decision as particularly deplorable, given that much of Southern Africa is again facing the threat of widespread famine;

— believes that this decision represents a massive betrayal of the trust of those developing countries that supported Ireland’s election to the Security Council of the United Nations;

— calls on the Government to cancel the cutback and to ensure that ODA is maintained at the level promised;

— further calls on the Government to support the draft Bill prepared by the Labour Party, the Ireland Aid Bill, to ensure that commitments in regard to ODA are ring-fenced and cannot be cut back by any government."

— expresses its continuing sympathy for all the victims of the 11th September atrocities;

— voices its concern at the worsening situation in Palestine and Israel and urges the compliance by the Israeli Government with United Nations resolutions and an end to its military occupation of the Palestinian territories;

— reiterates its commitment to the peaceful resolution of all international disputes and calls upon the Irish Government to:

- strongly oppose the launching of a new war against Iraq by the United States Administration and the British Government, a war which has the potential to escalate far beyond Iraq with catastrophic consequences throughout the region and worldwide;

- cease immediately the practice of giving permission to foreign states to refuel, re-supply and train military aircraft in Irish airports and Irish airspace and to use Irish seaports for their naval vessels;

- use all its political and diplomatic resources in the United Nations and the European Union to promote a peaceful solution."

[10 September, 2002]

 

39. "That Dáil Éireann:

 

notes with concern the considerable increase in the number of notified redundancies arising from the economic downturn;

condemns the refusal of a number of companies to pay redundancy terms recommended by the Labour Court;

believes that the current statutory redundancy scheme, which has not been updated for many years, is totally inadequate to compensate for the loss of a job, as a worker on the average industrial wage with 30 years service could qualify for as little as €10,307;

notes that the trade union movement regards this situation with sufficient seriousness that the ICTU has sanctioned nation-wide industrial action; and

calls on the Government to introduce amending legislation to provide for:

- an increase to three weeks pay for each year of service for redundant workers;

- a reduction in the qualifying period for entitlement to payments from two years to one; and

- a raising of the ceiling for the calculation of the lump sum to €635 per week and that this figure be index linked."

— calls for a comprehensive investigation into the allegations that the Taoiseach was aware of the inexplicable large payments by developers to former Minister Ray Burke prior to his appointment;

— calls for a comprehensive investigation into the manner in which the Government failed to declare the true state of the national economy prior to the last General Election;

— condemns successive Ministers for the Environment for failing to overturn badly planned rezoning decisions; and

— the continuing practice of placing disabled persons in psychiatric hospitals;

— the withdrawal of the waiting list funding programme while 1,700 people still await residential services; and

— expresses its deep concern at the major build-up of troops and weapons in the Gulf Region by the United States and a number of other countries, apparently in preparation for a war against Iraq at a time when the United Nations Arms Inspectors have not yet completed their mandate and when the Security Council has not yet considered what response, if any, is required to the report of the Inspectors;

— notes with alarm a recent UN report pointing to the potentially catastrophic consequences of a war, which include half a million direct or indirect casualties, the outbreak of disease and the displacement of hundreds of thousands of civilians;
