Simon Harris (Wicklow, Fine Gael)
The Minister rightly said getting people back to work was the best way to tackle poverty. Will she discuss with her Government colleagues the problems being experienced by my constituents and many others in coming off the dole to engage in short periods of work and who then experience inordinate delays in receiving social welfare payments when they have to go back on the dole? This is a major problem.
