The Government will produce its own legislation in respect of this matter. It will be better legislation. The relevant Bill will be published in the next two to three weeks. In such circumstances, I encourage the Deputy to wait to see the Government's legislation and judge it after she has seen and read it. I know she will want to do that and will not want to reject it before she has seen it. It will be very much part of the drive forward by this Government, not just to aim for full employment but also to aim for better employment, better jobs, better terms and conditions, more security and pension rights for everyone.

It was expected that this would be done and dusted by Christmas. Is that still a possibility or to what timescale is the Government working?
