Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health and Children
Business of Joint Committee
On behalf of the committee, I pay tribute to Deputy Róisín Shortall, who resigned last night as Minister of State with responsibility for primary care at the Department of Health. I thank her for her work not just with this committee but also in the area of alcohol policy, in which she worked closely with us. On a personal level, I regret her decision to resign, wish her well in her political career and thank her most sincerely for the work she did with this committee.
