Northern Ireland Issues
Joe McHugh (Donegal North East, Fine Gael)
The Minister said everything that needs to be said. I echo his call that information be provided. We must send out a strong signal on the importance of this matter to the families. Unfortunately we may not have success for all seven families, but even a percentage increase would be significant. I echo the Minister's comments and concur with him on the efforts of everybody in the commission. It is a question of conscience. People will be grappling with their consciences in bed at night. That is the time to think about it and I ask them to do so. Everything will be treated in the strictest confidence, as the Minister outlined.
