Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Postal Voting Facilities.


asked the Minister for Local Government if it would be possible to provide postal votes for Irish sailors on Irish ships for the next general election.

Postal voting is confined by law to members of the Garda Síochána and the Defence Forces. The introduction of legislation to extend postal voting facilities to sailors on Irish ships is not at present contemplated.
