Appropriation Bill 2020: Committee and Remaining Stages
I appreciate the latitude the Leas-Chathaoirleach is giving us and I appreciate that other Senators want to say a few words on this matter. With regard to the two previous speakers, Senator Martin mentioned that the time for talking is over. None of us need to say any more on what councillors do. Everyone knows what they do. Senator Gavan summed it up very eloquently in his contribution. This is not about a blame game or pointing the finger at Fine Gael and saying that it has been in government for eight years and has done nothing. We are not going to go there. It is Christmas. Fianna Fáil is in government.
