Employment (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill 2017: Committee Stage
It is important to say that it was not only Deputy Clare Daly who was not convinced. The result of vote was in the region of 38 to 35, with the support in Independents 4 Change, the Labour Party, and Sinn Féin. Fianna Fáil abstained and Fine Gael opposed it. When the amendment was before the Dáil, it was definitely not just Deputy Clare Daly who voted to keep it in. The numbers were pretty close, with just one or two votes in it and Fianna Fáil abstaining. Not everyone was convinced.
