The Heritage Bill 2016 was reintroduced to the Seanad on Wednesday November 9th. Given the controversy that surrounds all parts of this Bill, the debate was adjourned with Senators still focused on Amendments to the Wildlife Act contained in the Bill. IWAI has used this opportunity to secure the support of numerous Councillors and Senators. Councillors have responded by putting down unanimous motions calling for a deferral of the Bill until the Minister engages with Local Authorities and stakeholders. Senators have responded by supporting IWAI proposed amendments to the Heritage Bill 2016 Part 2 Canals. A total of 61 Amendments (53 from IWAI) were presented on Thursday November 17th for consideration during the reconvened debate in the Seanad but there was no time to discuss them. These Amendments will now form part of the debate at a future date. Please see links below for more detail.
