Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation
Michael McNamara (Clare, Independent)
The annual registration fee for nurses falls due at this time of year. Earlier this year, the registration fee for nurses who were returning to Ireland was waived. Any fee charged has to be approved by the Minister. Given the year that is in it, does the Tánaiste believe this is appropriate? We are approaching Christmas, but regardless of what the Government recommends, nurses will have a very different Christmas than the rest of society. The least the Government can do is waive the registration fee of €100 this year. Does the Taoiseach agree?
