LILA Charirman Patrick Harte speaks at recent debate in respect of the future of the Seanad

Patrick Harte

At a recent debate held by the London Irish Lawyers Association, Patrick Harte (Co-Chair of LILA) said that the decision to hold a debate had been taken because "an ever increasing number of disenfranchised, but politically aware Irish people are coming to London". He added "The question of whether such reform would be preferable to some other form of increased suffrage is one which greatly interests the Irish in Britain".

John-Paul Phelan TD and Senator Professor John Crown attended and addressed the meeting which was held at the National Liberal Club.

The Irish Government will hold a referendum on the Seanad's abolition on 4th October.
