In an interview with TJ McIntyre and Sean Sherlock just concluded on Today with Pat Kenny, the minister has promised to publish the most recent draft of the SI (the is the one nobody has yet seen!) within one hour. Regardless of the content of the draft, this is a significant victory for transparency in the legislature that has been won because of public pressure brought to bear by all 45,361 of you. Thank you!
12:09 PM update:
On hold with the Dept of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation to see where the promised SI wording is available. #SOPAireland –@Tupp_Ed
12:13 PM update:
The Department confirms the wording of the law isn’t ready. It’s still being worked on, they say. They will email when done. #SOPAireland –@Tupp_Ed

12:45 PM update:
The Journal has the full text online. We will update with our response when we’ve had time to read and review.
1:00 PM update:
TJ McIntyre and Simon McGarr are in Leinster House with a copy of the SI provided by the Department. As it apparently takes not one but two lawyers to parse, we await their update.
