The Constituency Commission

The High Court enjoined the Oireachtas to URGENTLY revise the constituencies.

By that time the Minister for the Environment, Hertiage and Local Government had established the usual Constituency Commission to furnish a report on the necessary changes to be made to some constituencies.

Presumably it URGENTLY asked for submissions from interested parties. Presumably they URGENTLY delivered those submissions.

Now the Commission will URGENTLY submit a report to the Minister.

In the middle of all this urgency we can see that there is no urgency in fact. The Commission has six months to do its work, and presumably, following form, will use all of the time to do that.

Where is it written that the world of politics stands still for this kind of process?
