......Priorities:
In addition with tasking me with preparing a response to the SlainteCare report, the Taoiseach announced that bringing forward legislation on alcohol is one of his priorities. Committee Stage of the Public Health (Alcohol) Bill will likely recommence in the Seanad in this session of the Oireachtas. I want to appeal to you as individuals and as a Health Committee to give this legislation your full support as we progress this critical piece of public health legislation through the Oireachtas.
