Health (General Practitioner Service) Bill 2018: Committee and Remaining Stages
I thank the Minister of State for bringing forward this legislation. It is important to give recognition that it is a step-by-step approach. One thing about the turnaround in economic circumstances is it is important to use wisely that increase in moneys coming into the Revenue Commissioners but that in particular, it is used for people who need that additional support. They provide a huge contribution and we should recognise that by giving them that additional support. Both the Minister of State and the Bill are welcome and I am delighted it has gone through its Final Stages here.
