The first Government Legislation Programme of the new Partnership Government has been published. The Cabinet has approved 11 new Bills, which the Government intends to publish before the summer recess. 17 Bills are already before the Oireachtas and a further 108 proposed Bills are being considered. A relevant selection of these Bills and proposals is set out below, by industry or sector. Keep an eye on our website for further updates.
A new pre-legislative stage for Bills has been introduced, which means that Oireachtas committees can now review the heads of Bills prior to the publication of the Bill itself. The committees can consult with relevant stakeholders and provide input to the Minister in question while the Bill is still being drafted.
