My question is about how slow we are to respond to the need for legislative change. As somebody who has been in the Houses of the Oireachtas and on the Bench, what would Ms McGuinness change to make the Oireachtas and the structures in place respond faster to the need for change?

It was stated that it would take ten years to change a law in this particular area but it took seven. There are many other areas where we have been very slow to change the law. From her own experience, what changes would she suggest?
