Order of Business
Maurice Cummins (Fine Gael)
The money is well spent at this stage.
Senator Paul Coghlan referred to the incoming Papal Nuncio. I am sure we all welcome Archbishop Brown, who will present his credentials to the President later.
Senator Colm Burke referred to the link between local authority rates and revenue. Local authority services are based on the revenue they generate and charges are collected by them. I note the issue he raised regarding the European Globalisation Fund and I commend him on his work during his time as an MEP when he helped to access moneys in this fund on behalf of the country.
