Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Animal Diseases (9 Nov 2021)

Pat Casey: I thank the Minister of State for his reply. In all fairness, it is a bit repetitive.

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Planning Issues (21 Oct 2021)

Pat Casey: I thank the Minister of State for his reply. I had to wait until the very end to get exactly what I needed.

My issue does not just relate to the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage; it is all Departments. How can a...
