I thank every Member in this House and in Seanad Éireann for their positive constructive participation in recent years on this Bill. One thing this shows is that every Member of this House and the Upper House has compassion and care for people who find themselves in less secure situations than we do. I want to pay particular tribute to a former Member. He is not in this House anymore but he got this ball rolling some years ago. As Senator Gerald Nash is not here to give himself the slap on the back, I would like to do it.

There are people who, once the Bill is signed by the President, will have security where they never had security before. On the day that is in it, I reckon that is a job well done. I thank each and every Member.
