Dáil debates

Like all important areas of public policy, drug and alcohol issues are discussed in the Dáil, Seanad and Oireachtas Committees.   Answers to parliamentary questions can be a very useful source of information on current Government thinking, allocation of resources or as indicators of possible policy shifts.   We go through the published transcripts of debates each day that the Dáil is in session and select the exchanges that have a significant drug, alcohol or tobacco policy content.   

We’ve also organised links to these transcripts by a number of subject headings.
