Child Care (Amendment) Bill 2009 [Seanad]: Report and Final Stages
Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin (Cavan-Monaghan, Sinn Fein)
That would broadly summarise my position. We are not making much headway in terms of any accedence on the part of the Minister of State to the very carefully considered amendments the Opposition voices are offering. I find it difficult to accept we can settle for something that may not measure up to what amendments Nos. 5 to 8, inclusive, seek to achieve. I am discomforted by it to the point I would ask what would be the net result if a Deputy wished to press his or her amendment at this point in time.
