Deliberations Over Irish Disability Law

See this article on Ireland Online. A taste:

Labour Party TD Kathleen Lynch has attacked the Government over its failure to introduce legally enforceable rights for the disabled.

Speaking as the Dáil debated the Disabilities Bill today, Ms Lynch said it was disingenuous to claim that such a move would lead to a raft of court cases against the Government.

The legislation was drawn up following years of negotiations with groups working with the disabled, but many of these groups had expressed disappointment that the bill is not rights-based.
