I do not think I have had an opportunity to wish the Minister well in her new portfolio so I do that now. I wish to voice my concerns over the legislation that is being rushed through here. Speaker after speaker has raised concerns over what the Minister and the Government are trying to do. To be honest, I think that the Government is extremely lucky that the Dáil is rising tonight for its summer recess. All the Government is doing is going from one crisis to another. As far as I am concerned, the Government is like a motor car going down a hill with four bald tyres, no steering wheel, no petrol in the tank and no brakes.
