Just to let you know, that the Labour Party Private Members Bill in respect of redress has now been entered by the Labour Party as a Private Members Bill and has been accepted as such by Government. Obviously Government has not allocated any time to it.
However, we have decided to allocate next weeks, Tuesday and Wednesday 7 to 8.30 each evening, of our last Private Members Time, our last Private Members Time before the summer recess, to debating our redress Bill.
In that context I would be grateful if you would let people you know, with an interest in the issue, know and also if they wish to come and hear some or all of the debate they will be very welcome.
They can either arrange to come and view the debate through my office or any other Labour Party TD or through Cathy Flanagan who will arrange for them to be admitted to the public gallery.
I hope that this will raise the profile of the various issues which the Bill seeks to redress.
I attach a summary of the Bill for your information.
Joan Burton TD.
Deputy Leader of the Labour Party.
