The Cabinet has agreed on the legislation that will come before the Oireachtas this autumn.

The priority legislation identified by the Cabinet included the Public Health (Alcohol) Bill, which will set a minimum unit price for alcohol.

It would also prevent shop owners from displaying alcoholic drinks.

While the Government has had problems progressing the Alcohol Bill, it now wants to get it over the line in the Dáil and Seanad in the coming weeks.

The controversial Judicial Appointments Bill, which has been championed by Minister for Transport Shane Ross, has also been identified as a priority for Government.

The Government has committed to publishing 28 pieces of new legislation this session.

Government Chief Whip Joe McHugh said an Irish Language Bill will go before an Oireachtas Committee for pre-legislative scrutiny before Christmas and will be published next year.

Mr McHugh met with the the Attorney General and senior civil servants last week as part of the Government's efforts to pass more legislation.

Some 44 Bills have been enacted by Government since it came into office in May last year.

The Dáil returns from its summer recess tomorrow.

Meanwhile, the Minister for Disabilities has said it is his intention to ratify the United Nations convention for people with disabilities before the end of the year.

Speaking on RTÉ's News at One, Finian McGrath said the first two stages have been passed through the Dáil.

He said he hoped to bring a memo to Cabinet by the end of this month.

Mr McGrath said he wanted to ensure that the legislation could stand up to scrutiny.

He said that while this was going on, Government was investing seriously in services for people with disabilities.
