Joint Oireachtas Committee On Key Issues Affecting The Traveller Community
Traveller Mental Health: Discussion (Resumed)
The Chair is a Seanadóir. Would it make a significant difference if a seat in the Seanad were reserved for a member of the Traveller community so there would be a permanent, guaranteed voice in the Houses of the Oireachtas? The whole idea of the Seanad is that it is not based on trying to capture the full electorate. There is a problem with that where there is a dispersed community.
