Qualifications and Quality Assurance (Education and Training) (Amendment) Bill 2018: Committee Stage (Resumed)
I also lend my support to the amendment as proposed. As Senator Nash said, we can only deal with the amendment in front of us. Given the fact it started in this House, we would like to see it finish in this House. On a point in support of the amendment, when it comes to advertising jobs for the RCSI, in particular trying to attract people to come back to Ireland from outside, not to have it recognised as a university is certainly an impediment to filling some posts. There is an urgency around the resolution of this issue. While I agree to it being withdrawn today, I hope it will be resolved in the near future in this House.
