Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation
Eugene Murphy (Roscommon-Galway, Fianna Fail)
I have to make this point. There was a powerful demonstration, which was on a cross-party basis, at the Committee on Health last Thursday. One of the most powerful contributions was from a Government Deputy, Deputy O'Connell, who has been in the news this morning but it was done on a cross-party basis with 12 Members involved. The chief executive officer of the IWA has refused, as Deputy Naughten said, to give any reply. She said she would go back to the board and put it to the board and now she will not even respond to the Members. I ask the Tánaiste to get this paused now. It is causing untold hurt and damage to vulnerable people.
