- Leaders' Questions (9 Mar 2017)
Frances Fitzgerald: ...to participating in the arrangements we will make in the Oireachtas. Clearly, we have said that we will set up a special committee. We have had good precedence with regard to that. The committee that Senator Buttimer chaired at the time had very respectful and inclusive discussions.

Colleagues are correct that some of them were dealt with already by the Minister, Deputy Jan O'Sullivan, yesterday and probably on Tuesday and on Committee Stage.

- Hospital Emergency Departments: Motion (Resumed) [Private Members] (14 Jan 2016) See 3 other results from this debate
