Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation
There has already been progress on this issue. I acknowledge the interest on the part of Deputy Eugene Murphy and others. Only yesterday evening in the presence of the Chief Justice, I formally launched and signed the order for the coming into effect of the Judicial Council. A part of the council’s component is the personal injuries guidelines committee which will assist Deputy Murphy. It has already met and is scheduled to meet again early in the new year. Its function will be to lead the recalibration of the book of quantum. I have no doubt we will see progress on this. I must advise the Deputy, however, as I have in the past, that this will be merely one part of the jigsaw.
