Ceisteanna ar Pholasaí nó ar Reachtaíocht - Questions on Policy or Legislation
Catherine Connolly (Galway West, Independent)
My question relates to the Criminal Law (Sexual Offences) Act 2017. Built into that Act was a provision for review, particularly of the operation of Part 4. Here we are five years later and that review has not been completed although I understand an independent reviewer is in place. What is the status of the review? When will it be completed and published? Is it going to take into account the recent report from the University of Limerick, funded by the Department of Justice, entitled "I Must Be Some Person: Accounts from Street Sex Workers in Ireland", which was published in August?
