The Dail session which started last Wednesday might prove itself to be one of the most important and crucial sittings this Government has during its term.

Though it has now been in power for just over six months, the Government has yet to flesh out, in any great detail, how it proposes to tackle the problems facing us. That, hopefully, is what they will do between now and Christmas.

It will be a tight schedule with a range of vitally important issues competing with each other for proper debate and consideration. More careful management and clearer thinking by the Government before the summer may have avoided this growing backlog.
