Senator Ivana Bacik: With regard to the last issue raised by Senator Darragh O'Brien, the Tánaiste gave a robust response, as reported in today's newspapers, to the assertion by Michael Link last week. The Tánaiste made it clear that it was not the case and that the fiscal compact was not negotiated in such a way as to avoid the need for a referendum. That is the answer the Senator seeks. He does not need to amend the Order of Business-----

Senator Ivana Bacik: I join in congratulating Senator Trevor Ó Clochartaigh and his family on their new arrival. I welcome the new format announced by the Leader for today's discussion with the Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food.

Senator Ivana Bacik: All of us join Senator O'Brien in expressing sympathy in regard to that latest appalling shooting. Last night there was a debate in this House on the Criminal Justice (Amendment) Act 2009 with the Minister for Justice and Equality, and Members aired their concerns about the effectiveness of current legislative measures. The Minister helpfully indicated that he would conduct a review of the organised crime provisions in the Act, which I welcome as it is very important.

Senator Darragh O'Brien: Parts of it.

Senator Ivana Bacik: The Senator indicated he supported the concept behind it.

Senator Darragh O'Brien: The principle, yes.
