The Occupied Territories Bill 2018
The Occupied Territories Bill, currently before the Irish Parliament, has attracted a great deal of international attention. If enacted, it will result in a complete ban on the import of goods and services produced in the illegal Israeli settlements situated in the Occupied Palestinian Territories.
[The Irish Parliament (the Oireachtas) consists of two Houses, the Dail (elected, lower house) and the Seanad (appointed/elected, upper house), plus the President (elected). All proposals for a new law (Act of the Oireachtas) starts life as a Draft, then a Bill, which has to traverse several parliamentary procedures, in this case, through the Seanad, then Dáil, and when successfully passed through these it is signed into law by the President.]
