Message to Dáil

In accordance with Standing Order 87, the following message will be sent to the Dáil:

The Select Committee on Justice and Equality has completed its consideration of the Intoxicating Liquor (Breweries and Distilleries) Bill 2016 and has made amendments thereto.

I thank Deputy Kelly and commend his initiative. I wish the Bill every success in its further Stages and hope we see its implementation at the earliest possible date this year. I thank the Minister and his officials for attending. The Minister is staying to deal with the next Bill but the officials seem to be escaping - well done. I thank them for joining the Minister. We will take a moment to allow for a switch in personnel.
