Social Welfare Bill 2022: Committee and Remaining Stages (30 Nov 2022)

Heather Humphreys: I can agree to report to the Oireachtas on the matter. However, I have to set out some facts relating to the ex gratiapayment.

Social Welfare Bill 2022: Committee and Remaining Stages (30 Nov 2022)

Seán Sherlock: I wholeheartedly support Deputy Naughten’s proposed amendment because more of us are interacting with people who are definitively feeling the effects of long Covid. The amendment is a reasonable one in that it seeks to have a report laid before the House on particular measures, especially, as stated in the amendment, in designating long Covid as an occupational illness. We all have...
