Here's the ballot paper the Constitutional Convention will vote on today

They will decide whether to recommend if the rights to housing, social welfare and emergency health care should be in the Constitution.

WE WILL LATER today find out if the Constitutional Convention will recommend to the government that citizen’s economic rights should be written into Bunreacht na hÉireann.

Yesterday there was an outline of what will be voted on but today the final ballot has been released.

It asks first of all whether greater protection is needed and that teases out how the Convention would go about making a recommendation.

Finally, at asks what specific rights should be included in any submission to Government such as the right to housing, social welfare and emergency health care.

The result of the Convention being held at the Grand Hotel in Dublin should be known by 1pm.
