An Bille um an gCeathrú Leasú is Tríocha ar an mBunreacht (Comhionannas Pósta) 2015: Céim an Choiste - Thirty-fourth Amendment of the Constitution (Marriage Equality) Bill 2015: Committee Stage
I am grateful for the courteous and careful way in which the Leas-Chathaoirleach has allowed me to express my major concern about this. It has the potential to bring the Seanad and the officials who work in these Houses and their decision making under public scrutiny in a way that will not reflect well on them. These issues are going to be central to the public debate and if it is out there that is was not even possible to amend the Constitution proposal there is going to be nothing but contempt for the procedures of these Houses.
