Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation
The co-operative societies Bill is on the long list of upcoming legislation and I understand the heads of Bill are being prepared. The intent of the Bill is to consolidate and improve legislation governing co-operatives. As the Tánaiste, is aware, the legislation is very old. I mention this in the context of developing community wind energy and it is a priority of the Government that community energy be a significant piece in the clean energy landscape in future. If we want this to work, the co-operatives legislation should be fit for purpose.
Will the Tánaiste provide an update on the legislation?
