Business of Seanad
I have received notice from Senator Cecilia Keaveney that, on the motion for the Adjournment of the House today, she proposes to raise the following matter:
The need for the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform to confirm whether a convention is needed for youths or the efforts being made to define the age at which a child is a child and an adult is an adult, given the lack of a single legal definition.
I regard the matter raised by the Senator as suitable for discussion on the Adjournment and it will be taken at the conclusion of business.
