Government to let Down Syndrome Equality of Access bill to proceed to commitee stage

The Cabinet have decided not to request labour and fine gael TDs to vote down Finian McGrath's bill. Allowing it  to proceed to the commitee stage. This is in large part down to the huge amount of lobbying that parents have undertaken.

There's a long way to go but its a positive step, with the elections coming up it's really important for us all to keep up the pressure on our political representatives. You can read more about it on the examiners website here (Don't get over excited by the headline!), there's also a guide to the legislative process here
