Social Welfare Bill 2019: Report Stage
I move amendment No. 2:
In page 9, after line 43, to insert the following:"(4) The signing of a personal progression plan shall not be considered a requirement in terms of subsection (3)(a) or (b).".
This amendment relates to personal progression plans. Having reviewed the conversation with the Minister on Committee Stage, during which she spoke about the guidelines that currently exist in respect of personal progression plans, I have decided to withdraw this amendment. I hope to be able to engage with the Minister on the guidelines. That might be a more appropriate way of strengthening good practice in this area.
