Wildlife (Amendment) Bill 2016: Report Stage (Resumed) and Final Stage
Lynn Ruane (Independent)
I thank Minister of State. I appreciate where we have moved with this amendment. I will raise a note of concern which is that that engagement happens, and whether it is possible for the report to be done within his Department, rather than disappearing as soon as this goes to the Dáil. We are apprehensive when we do so much work on amendments here, that they can be accepted, in principle, but lose their force then when the Bill goes to the Dáil. I accept that this is not the case and that it is something that the Minister of State is willing to engage with and look at. We are willing to accept the Minister of State's views on this amendment.
