Nursing Homes Support Scheme (Amendment) Bill 2021: Committee and Remaining Stages
Pat Casey (Fianna Fail)
Having worked with the Minister of State in the previous Dáil when she was a Deputy, I know her work ethic. She was our spokesperson on older people and I know this has been an issue on her agenda. When she was appointed Minister of State, I know what it meant to her. Today is another milestone so I congratulate her on her success in getting this important legislation through that we were all looking for. I also thank her officials.
Finally, I thank Martin Groves and all the staff over the year. I especially thank the cleaning staff who knock on our doors quietly and come in and clean the handles and all around us to make sure we are safe. Well done to the Minister of State; I congratulate her.
