Judicial Appointments Commission Bill 2017: Committee Stage (Resumed)
I have no wish to intervene unduly but we have heard all the points that Senator McDowell has mentioned and is mentioning. I am not saying they are not important. They are, but there is now a form of repetition that, to my mind, is deliberately inhibiting progress on an important Bill. Senator McDowell is right when he says that we are dealing with the fundamentals of the Bill, but we have been on the same point for a period of in excess of 60 hours.
