Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation
Micheál Martin (Taoiseach, Department of An Taoiseach; Cork South Central, Fianna Fail)
I have noted of late Deputy Durkan's tenacity and persistence on the issue of the lottery and the need for somebody to win the prize. It could be taken up by the Joint Committee on Finance, Public Expenditure and Reform, and Taoiseach. I think the Deputy is a member. It should invite the regulator which governs the licensing of the lotto. We all have high estimations of ourselves but my capacity to produce a winner in the lottery is something that I do not think is in my grasp right now. However, I wish Deputy Durkan continued success in his efforts to achieve this.
