Whilst this took place three weeks back, it is still relevant and important to understand the context and issues

News has come through from the personal assistant of one of our publicly elected representatives in the Oireachtas that the vote to extend the emergency Covid legislation will take place on 2nd June, at 6:30pm.

This vote was initially due to take place on Wednesday 9th June but TD’s were informed today (Tuesday 1st June) that it had been brought forward by 1 week.

Quoting the TD’s personal assistant, “there will be a vote with no speaking time or debate whatsoever. If you blink you’ll miss it”.

This legislation will give Stephen Donnelly, the power to introduce laws without consulting with the Dail, and that includes laws to increase the powers of An Garda Siochana. This is extraordinary power to give to one individual and has never happened before in Ireland during peace times.

In this episode of The Healthy Debate tonight we will discuss the upcoming vote with Irish Inquiry presenters… Lindie Naughton, Anna Kavanagh, Dr. Finbar Markey and Dr. Peter Dunne.
