That is a very positive reply. It is great to know that work has already been done in this regard and that meetings have taken place. I would be very confident that we will see a new system that is more in line with modern Ireland and the complex needs of people with disabilities along with their ambitions to live normal and equal lives and contribute to society. This is the second time in the 12 years since I was elected to the Seanad that I received a script from a Minister that I could read. The last Minister to do it was the Minister of State and the next one was the Minister of State. No other Minister has ever thought enough to produce a script that I was in a position to read so I acknowledge the Minister of State's commitment to equality in a practical and sensible way.
