Motion on the Passport Service
I want to thank Siobhan and all the members of the passport office who have been under immense pressure. In the last 2 years we have had very limited travel and we all know what' ahead of us but this motion is a waste of your ministerial time. There are a lot more issues that need to be addressed more urgently like children with spina bifida or scoliosis awaiting surgeries or the number of homeless people dying on our streets. What will be done with the digitisation of passport data and will it be used by the department of foreign affairs in the future as the digital passes are still in operation in the EU. I asked Minister Coveney for a full comprehensive report on this.
