Qualifications and Quality Assurance (Education and Training) (Amendment) Bill 2018: [Seanad Bill amended by the Dáil] Report and Final Stages
I thank the Minister of State and her officials for the work they have put into the Bill.The Minister of State is always very much on top of her brief in higher education, which is to be commended. It is great to be here today to see the Bill being passed as I supported it from the start. I commend my colleague, Senator James Reilly, whose timing is impeccable, on the work he put into it. I welcome our friends from the RCSI who are here today and I am glad they can now go forward and apply for university designation. It is fitting and I am delighted for them because the college works very hard to provide an excellent service. I thank the Minister of State for all her hard work and wish her well over the break.
