gaming and lotteries amendment bill 2020 bingo

The unintended consequence in this instance could be the closure of these events. We will, however, be directed by him on this issue. A resolution can be found to this problem. We often pass legislation that has unintended consequences. I thank the Acting Chairman. Following on from my colleague, I am speaking only of my local bingo games that have been in operation for the past 25 years to raise funds for the local youth clubs, football pitches etc. I apologise for being late. On a point of order, and I will be as brief as possible, there is serious concern regarding this issue. I hope the Minister of State understands the implications of the legislation he is proposing. These are statements and we cannot have this happening. People have become aware of this now. I agree with Deputy Naughten that section 12 could be an option for recommittal. We regularly pass legislation to control certain things. Deputy Michael Healy-Rae. I would like to get an opportunity to clarify the information for colleagues when the time comes. It might be in order to recommit when we get to section Would that be okay? The Deputies should only be contributing on a point of order, and these are not points of order. Bailey, Maria. You need to update your browser. Deputy David Stanton. Breen, Pat. I have one other question on this issue for the Minister of State. That requires people to carry substantial additional cash floats in parish halls around the country. I say that because what the Taoiseach stated earlier was that what the Minister of State is proposing will not affect bingo and will not close down bingo halls. If were to live forever, I would not understand why the Minister of State would want to attack a sector of society composed of people minding their own business and who just want to play the game of bingo. I call Deputy Collins for a brief contribution, as he indicated first. For the information of the House, may I suggest that we recommit section 12 of this Bill to Committee Stage and we have a discussion on it? I call Deputy Scanlon for a brief contribution and then I will give the Minister of State an opportunity to respond before we move on, if he wishes. The Minister of State is nodding his head to indicate that it does, so then there is no problem. Share this page. Byrne, Malcolm. It will not be viable for local clubs, societies and voluntary groups to continue their bingo events, some of which have been running for decades. I hope he was mistaken or did not understand it. This is not the stage where we do that. I ask the Minister of State to recommit section 12 to Committee Stage so that we can deal with the substantive issue. I am glad the Minister of State is nodding his head in agreement with me because the real problem is the information circulating. Deputy Sean Sherlock. The people who run bingo, whether it is a small, medium or large operation, are of the opinion that what the Minister of State is doing is detrimental to the game of bingo. The Acting Chairman has been very helpful in allowing us to come back in and make contributions. Calleary, Dara.{/INSERTKEYS}{/PARAGRAPH} My previous history with the Minister of State has demonstrated that he is a fair and honest person who will clarify something if it needs to be clarified. {PARAGRAPH}{INSERTKEYS}What he said showed one of two things. Those lotto games take place over months. If he does not, then I am going to move on to Deputy Sherlock. The Minister of State would be doing us a great service if he were to give us some comfort by confirming that such activities will not fall foul of this legislation. Regarding section 9, the Minister of State has already provided clarity to us, outside of this House, regarding those clubs we all represent, including GAA clubs, community organisations etc. Browne, James. I spoke to the Minister of State last night and gave him the example of the case across the Border in Northern Ireland. These are difficult times and people look forward to their weekly outing to play bingo. We should not be encouraging people in communities that have been left vulnerable to robbery because of Garda station closures, etc. I will be very brief. A great deal of clarification is needed on this subject. If the Minister of State does what he is proposing to do, that will have a detrimental effect on the running of bingo operations and games because it is reducing by at least half the funding that can be made available for prizes and jackpots, lines across, full boxes and full houses. My God, those people were outside of these Houses yesterday and they were the most respectable people in the world. Clear search. I support Deputy Sherlock's proposal. Burke, Peter. Broughan, Thomas P. Deputy Martin Kenny. A tiered system is in place there where commercial bingo operations come under a different regulatory regime than community events. The easiest way to deal with this is to recommit the Bill in respect of section 12 to enable a simple amendment to be made which would clarify our intention to provide for a tiered process that covers the commercial operators, which the Minister of State is trying to address in this legislation, and the community bingo events across the country, which we want to allow to continue to function as they have functioned up to now. Most of this will come up as we go through the amendments. What is the situation concerning local lottos? I know the Taoiseach gave his answers today. Representatives from those bingo games were in contact with me today and they had that opinion. Brassil, John. We have to deal with a number of amendments before we get to section I will be quite happy to recommit the Bill in respect of section There will be no problem whatsoever with having a Committee Stage debate. Some information has not been clarified. It would be useful, however, to look at recommittal to Committee Stage for section 12, in particular, if it might be possible to do that. Those funds help to keep festivals going in places such as Goleen, Kilbrittain, Bandon, Clonakilty or wherever bingo games are held weekly. Brophy, Colm. These issues are not the subject of amendments either, and that is why we are seeking this clarification. Deputy Eamon Scanlon. Most of the voluntary groups I am familiar with in west Cork organise and play bingo to try to raise funds for the local hall or local charitable event. Deputy Denis Naughten. Technically, we should not. I ask him to be brief or I will cut him off. I am grateful to the Acting Chairman. We could probably make some small tweaks that would improve everyone's lot. I was just going to say that the idea of a recommittal, if the Minister of State is amenable, would not be a bad idea. I will be delighted to do so. I remind the House that thousands of people throughout the country get social interaction and social solace from bingo. I want the Minister of State to clarify this before we go one bit further, because the Taoiseach was wrong in what he said today. Your browser is out of date and some features of this web site may not display correctly. There is a serious concern among people who play bingo. Deputy Michael Collins. If Deputy Michael Collins wants to make a point of order, I will let him do that. For what it is worth, Deputies, these are not points of order. I am glad the Minister of State is again nodding his head on this issue because this is where the crux of this issue lies. I did not expect this debate to start so soon. There is a lot of confusion out there. That is all part of the fun and enjoyment people have with those games. The Bill could be recommitted in respect of the aspect I have mentioned. Deputy Mattie McGrath. There is much worry abroad regarding whether local GAA lotteries, in particular, will be allowed to roll over under this legislation. That is factually incorrect.
