Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health and Children
Business of Joint Committee
I would also like to be associated with the remarks about my party colleague. I very much regret her decision, particularly in view of the ground-breaking work she did on the reform of our health service, the line she was pursuing and her commitment to tackling the alcohol issue, which is especially relevant on a day that has been hijacked by a particular drinks company. People from the drinks lobby will be rejoicing that she is gone, but there is an onus on this committee to ensure her work is not in vain.
