Report of Working Group on Seanad Reform 2015: Statements

Speaking during a debate on Seanad reform in the Seanad yesterday, I called called for the introduction of wide-ranging reforms of the Seanad, and made constructive proposals based upon the Report of the Working Group on Seanad Reform.

The proposals included the recommendation that the existing registers of voters on the University Seanad panels (ie the registers kept by the NUI and by Dublin University) should be accessible online by graduates, in the same way that the General Election registers is accessible online at www.checktheregister.ie.
