Seanad Eireann Order of Business - Wednesday, 17 June 2015

Last week in the Order of Business I called for a debate on the matters arising from the unforeseen Clerys shop closure  on Friday 12th June. 

"There have been calls for a debate on the matters arising from the Clerys shop closure on Friday. It was raised this morning as a Commencement matter and many of us raised it yesterday on the Order of Business also. While I welcome the very active engagement of the Minister of State, Deputy Gerald Nash, on the issue and the active engagement of the Department of Social Protection with the staff of Clerys, we should have a debate on the repercussions and on what can be done to prevent something like this from happening again. We should discuss how we can strengthen our legislation on redundancy and insolvency. I ask for that debate again. I welcome the fact that it appears the concession holders will have access to their stock, although it is limited. At least that one thing is being done."
