Today in Leinster House: October 5, 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 [Dara Calleary, Fianna Fáil] – Assaults on Emergency Workers Bill 2012 (second stage) – The first Friday sitting of the season goes to Fianna Fáil, with not-still-the-justice-spokesman Dara Calleary proposing legislation which has a fairly simple effect. In short, it would impose minimum jail terms (with some exceptions) for anyone convicted of an assault on an emergency worker on duty.

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