Seanad Public Consultation Committee

The Seanad Public Consultation Committee (SPCC),  which was established as part of the new procedures to open access to Seanad Éireann and its work, is to specify and publicise areas related to the legislative powers of the Seanad and issues of public policy and to invite submissions from the Public and Interest Groups.

What's on this week

The Seanad Public Consultation Committee is now inviting written submissions from interested groups or individuals in the area of children’s mental health in Ireland.

The Committee will consider written submissions and may decide to invite a number of contributors to public hearings, which will take place in the Seanad Chamber. When this public process is complete, the Committee intends to publish a report on the matter for the consideration of the Seanad and the Government.
