Oireachtas Brief 54 June 2013

Welcome to Oireachtas Brief, the information service for social justice NGOs and voluntary sector activists interested in issues of poverty and social exclusion in the Oireachtas.  Oireachtas Brief is provided by The Wheel and the European Anti Poverty Network (EAPN) Ireland, supported by the Atlantic Philanthropies and edited by Brian Harvey.   The service is sent from www.oireachtasbrief.ie, where you may search old bulletins by date of issue, topic and speaker.

If this is not the case, or if you later wish to opt out, please send a message to the appropriate section at www.oireachtasbrief.ie   New subscribers are always welcome and should go to the ‘subscribe’ section of the site.  The service is irregular and depends on sittings of the Oireachtas.  It is absolutely not available for advertising nor for the posting of other messages, so please do not ask, lest refusal offend.  Comments and corrections are welcome to editor@oireachtasbrief.ie.

 

Note that e-links are not provided for each specific reference and readers must locate the pages in question themselves through the Oireachtas site.
