Healy-Rae questions plan to disqualify first-time drink-drivers
TD Michael Healy Rae

Independent Kerry South TD Michael Healy-Rae has expressed his opposition to proposed legislation that would see first-time drink-drivers disqualified from driving.

Transport Minister Shane Ross will brief an all-party group on the proposals later, and Deputy Healy-Rae is looking forward to hearing more information on the plan.

“He’s talking about bringing it before a committee today,” said Deputy Healy-Rae.

“Is he or has he brought it before the Cabinet, has he the full support of Cabinet on this, do his colleagues support what he’s intending or proposing to do?

“So yes, this may be his own personal opinion, but we’ll have to see will it eventually become law or not.”
