Thread: Gilmore announces his front bench

  1. #1

    Default Gilmore announces his front bench

    • Today the new Leader of the Labour Party Eamon Gilmore announced his new front bench containing a blend of youth and experience that will enable Labour to keep the Government to account in the Dail and the Seanad.

      Speaking about his choices, Eamon explained: "I have not felt the need to 'shadow' exactly existing departments (they are often created simply as an administrative convenience for government) and I have in a number of cases given Deputies and Senators responsibility for areas that I consider to be of particular importance, including human rights, constitutional and law reform, disability issues and the Irish language.

      Each of the three newly elected TDs has been given important portfolios and I have no doubt that they will rise to the challenge. Each of the new Senators has also been given responsibility for a key area."

    Full list below the fold.

    Hannigan to speak on commuter issues is definitely a good move. It's likely to be a major issue for people in his constituency in the next election. Almost all other constituencies where commuting is an issue have a Labour TD.

    It's as logical as Rural and Gealtacht affairs.

    Can someone tell me what "commuter issues" are not covered by either environment or transport? This is a nonsense of the highest order.

    You clearly don't live in the commuter belt. Dominic will be looking at issues like the lack of school places, management companies, unfinished estates, lack of public transport, to name but a few.
