The Domestic Violence Bill 2017 is awaiting resumption of Committee Stage in the Seanad.  The Deputy will understand that it is not possible for me to predict the outcome of the legislative process with regard to this or any other Bill.  However, my aim is that the Bill will be enacted as soon as possible.
