Communications Regulation (Postal Services) Bill 2010 [Seanad]: Second Stage (Resumed)

Then it will have to go to Committee Stage. I understand this is the last stage of liberalisation. In my day as the Minister for Public Enterprise, I introduced the original liberalisation from Europe. I understand there have been two stages along the way.
