Senator Ivana Bacik: I welcome the imminent publication of the personal insolvency Bill on which it would be a good idea to receive a briefing.

National Lottery: Motion

Wednesday, 23 May 2012

Senator Ivana Bacik: I welcome the Minister of State, Deputy John Perry, and the opportunity to debate the motion.
