Back to Work: Dáil set to officially reconvene today with discussions on a number of Bills set to be on the agenda

The Cabinet is set to formally reconvene this morning after taking two months off for summer holidays.

Amongst the agenda for those returning to the Dáil will be the debating of a number of Bills including the Public Health Bill and Social Welfare Bill.

It is expected that a number of TDs will formally discuss both Bills which will have major impact on the Irish taxpayer.

Although the Public Health Bill has been on the agenda for over two years it is expected that the Bill which will see a change on the pricing of alcohol, will go through the Dáil with relative ease in the coming weeks ahead as the vast majority of TDs in the cabinet agree there should be change on the pricing of units of alcohol.

Meanwhile those returning to work this morning are also expected to discuss the new Social Welfare Bill that will actively deal with those who are found guilty of fraud.

The Bill which was proposed the Taoiseach Leo Varadkar when he was the Minister for Social Protection will see those found guilty facing tougher punishments and being put on a live public register.

In what will be a challenging few months ahead the cabinet will most likely take time out to discuss the upcoming Budget which is due to be announced next month.
