Public Health Alcohol Bill to be reintroduced after Halloween

The long-stalled Public Health (Alcohol) Bill, 2015, will be reintroduced in the Seanad when the House resumes after the Halloween break, the Taoiseach has confirmed.

Leo Varadkar told the Dáil on Wednesday the Bill would be in the Upper House on November 8th, as concerns were raised about the delay in bringing the controversial legislation through the Oireachtas.
