Mark has helped ensured the progress of the first ever report by a Dáil and Seanad Committee on the issue of Uniting Ireland and its People in Peace & Prosperity for the Joint Oireachtas Committee on the Implementation of the Good Friday Agreement. The first Report was followed by a further five reports on the topic of a United Ireland which can be accessed on this website.
In 2022, Mark helped to launch a Seanad Public Consultation Committee which is looking at the constitutional future of the island of Ireland given the ongoing public policy debate on the issue, the safeguarding of the peace process and the future that Ireland would like to have for generations to come.
The purpose of the public consultation is to invite submissions from individuals, interested groups and organisations to consider the constitutional future of the Island of Ireland. The Committee encourages people from all traditions and opinions to lend their voices to this process and welcomes the voices of the Unionist Community and their vision for the future.
The Seanad Public Consultation Committee acknowledges the ongoing work of the Joint Committee on the Implementation of the Good Friday Agreement on this matter.
The Seanad Public Consultation Committee will also look at the recommendations of the Joint Committee on the Implementation of the Good Friday Agreement rapporteurs reports on the topic of constitutional change and other similar reports when examining the Constitutional Future.
