Before I call the Minister of State, Deputy Rabbitte, I want to say that we heard some of this case last week when the Minister, Deputy O’Gorman, was here to deal with it from the point of view of the Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth. I thought long and hard about whether to select this issue today, but I have selected it because nobody is identifiable and because Deputy Durkan has demonstrated over a very considerable period his deep concern about this issue. It raises fundamental issues of natural justice. I do not know where else it could be ventilated if it cannot be ventilated here, so in that context we are dealing with it again today.
