Government is ineffective because it lacks vision - Aengus Ó Snodaigh TD

Commenting on the’s FactFind survey which showed that in its first year, only 20 Government Bills were signed into law in the 32nd Dáil, Sinn Féin Party Whip Aengus Ó Snodaigh said the findings illustrate how completely ineffective this Fine Gael-led Government is.

Deputy Ó Snodaigh said:

“Despite claims by the Government Chief Whip Regina Doherty that the 32nd Dáil is “unusually productive” the facts tell a different story. In its first year only 20 Government Bills were made law which is the joint lowest for any Dáil since the formation of the State.

"This lack of efficiency when progressing legislation starkly illustrates how ineffective this government is, despite its complaince arrangements with Fianna Fáil. The failure to produce legislation lays squarely at the feet of the government, who have little vision and therefore  produce little in terms of new laws."

Deputy Ó Snoidaigh concluded:

“It is little wonder that the public have so little faith in a political process that is delivering such a small amount of legislative change at a time when we have an unprecedented housing shortage and a health system that is in crisis.”
