I apologise for being absent last night when the Topical Issue debate was due to deal with the issue I will now raise again, that of family legislation reform. I congratulate the Minister on her success to date and her intentions to carry out those reforms by the end of the year. I am asking today for a preliminary inquiry into the activities which are ongoing and which are to the distinct disadvantage of many mothers and some fathers, and are a serious dereliction of what the public should expect. I would ask that that be done as a means of informing further the debate that will take place by the end of the year.

I wonder Does Bernard Durkan also believe that coercive control and child abuse are pseudo concepts too?

97% of Irish Councils passed motions calling upon the Irsih Government to recognise and adddresss parental alienation

Thankfully they have listened and are implementing six recommendatiosn to address parental aliention and false allegations

Thankfully the rest of his government see sense
