Today in Leinster House: May 11, 2012

It’s the first Friday of the month on which the Dáil has been around to sit, so it’s time for some opposition legislation…

10:30am – Private Members’ Business [John McGuinness, Fianna Fáil] – Comptroller and Auditor General Bill 2012 (second stage) – John McGuinness’s legislation comes with an extra oomph, because he’s the chairman of the Public Accounts Committee, the body at which the Comptroller and Auditor General does most of his work. McGuinness’s work proposes to extend the C&AG’s remit to extend to local authorities as well as central governmental agencies. If the government opposes the Bill it’ll call a vote which will be held on Tuesday.

All of the day’s business can be viewed on our Dáil streams for web and Facebook.
