Go raibh maith agat, a Cheann Comhairle. Before Covid, on 27 January 2016, the first ever national maternity strategy was launched with great fanfare and, indeed, on the pain and suffering of mothers and children. Four years later, on 12 February 2020, still before Covid, HIQA published its report. The report highlighted HIQA's concern at the overall level of progress in the implementation of the strategy. Fast forward to a motion in my name, on 2 June this year, supported entirely by every part in the Dáil and all the Independents, calling, among other things, for the immediate implementation of the plan and to produce a costed implementation plan as a matter of urgency. Can the Minister update me on the status of that urgent plan?
