Parole Bill 2016: Committee and Remaining Stages
I too welcome the passage of this Bill, which pertains to a very important aspect of our criminal justice system. It will have profound effects for the victims and perpetrators of crime in society as a whole. I pay tribute to the Minister of State, to his Department and officials, and to thank colleagues here in this House for supporting the Bill, which was put forward by Deputy O'Callaghan in the Dáil. It is a very good day that this is now passed and I thank everybody for their support.
