Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation
I thank Deputy Howlin for the question. I agree with him regarding the priority nature of this legislation. I acknowledge a group within my Department that is working closely with Deputy Howlin and others to ensure the legislation, as drafted, can be fit for purpose. I expect progress on this issue early in the new year and I assure Deputies, in particular Deputy Howlin, that I will keep them fully informed of developments. I expect to be in a position to report progress early in the new year.
