Report of the Seanad Reform Implementation Group: Statements (7 Nov 2019)

John Paul Phelan: I am just highlighting the lack of unanimity, to say the least, that exists. Deputy Cassells asked what international expertise I used in my assertion about registration. I just use the practical interpretation that we, as public representatives, use. In other words, it is not sufficient to state that just because a group believes that not everybody who is entitled to register will do...
