Garda Síochána Bill 2004 [Seanad]: Report Stage (Resumed) and Final Stage.
Joe Costello (Dublin Central, Labour)
That is true.
We are close to getting an acceptable formula that will satisfy the concerns of all. However, I also ask the Minister to consider whether the amendment should refer to "each individual" or "each person". I have my own amendment No. 21 in mind in querying whether "persons" is the correct word. Although that amendment refers to the "human rights of individuals", I was subsequently unsure whether "persons" might be a better word. I am not sure whether the Minister would consider it more appropriate.
