Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation
I thank the Deputy. We have discussed this a number of times. It was my intention to bring the scheme to a Cabinet meeting during the recess. That did not happen, but that does not mean that progress has not been made. During the last two weeks there have been several contacts between myself and the Minister for Finance on this issue. This morning I met officials and requested the latest version of the scheme that we have drawn up, which I hope to take to Cabinet next week. That is my hope, but I am working with forces outside my control to get this over the line. I appreciate Deputy McConalogue's patience on this issue.
