Harassment, Harmful Communications and Related Offences Bill 2017: Report and Final Stages
I agree with Deputy Kenny in that we had a detailed discussion on this on Committee Stage. We are aware that the offence is prosecuted and is being prosecuted by the Garda under harassment legislation at present. I agree with the general point on getting the Bill as right as possible. On the previous amendment, the Bills Office has been able to insert additional amendments. A Labour Party Senator could try to submit an amendment tomorrow. On the amendment under consideration, No. 16, the harassment legislation covers the matter. It is already operable.
