Joint Oireachtas Committee on Housing, Planning and Local Government
Committee Work Programme: Discussion (Resumed)
Will we proceed by inviting representatives from the Department to attend the public meeting next week to look at the abstraction Bill? We will also write to the NGOs for written submissions on it. I will see whether we can get a second session on Wednesday or Thursday next week to accommodate them. It is very time constrained. I am sure the NGOs have prepared for the Bill because it is not a surprise and this is the second revision of it. For the third public session we will invite Home for Good and we will write to other groups. Deputy Ó Broin has suggested other groupings. Based on the suggestions of members, we will write to request written submissions and, on the basis of these, we will then decide who to invite to the meeting in three weeks' time. Is that agreed?
