Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions
The Dáil recently heard statements on the Grace case, which were deeply moving. That is the precedent and I welcome the fact that we will have statements on this report. As the Tánaiste said in his response, lessons have to be learned here. We need the full report to be published. We need all of the facts to be on the table and from that, hopefully, will come accountability and a framework to ensure that this never, ever happens again. The Tánaiste said that the Minister of State, Deputy Rabbitte, is working with the Attorney General on the publication of this report. It is critically important that the full report and not just the executive summary be provided to the public, that there is full accountability for what happened here and that lessons are learned. We can then engage in this House to try to make sure, collectively and on a cross-party basis, that this never, ever happens again.
