This was a week where much attention was focussed on the Seanad, primarily because of the Social Welfare Bill.
Beyond that though, a great deal of other things were also passed as we conclude before the Christmas period. 2012 has seen a lot of legislation pass through the Seanad, such as the significant Personal Insolvency Bill, and we hope that in 2013 it makes a difference in the lives of many.
Meanwhile, this week in the Seanad:
Europol Bill 2012 was passed
Social Welfare Bill 2012 was passed
Health and Social Care Professionals Bill 2012 was passed
Motion to extend the Credit Institutions Stabilisation Act 2010 was debated
Equal Status Bill 2012 was passed
Health Insurance Bill 2012 was passed
Finance (Local Property Tax) Bill 2012 was passed
