I made it clear in the Dáil on numerous occasions that the terms of reference cover anybody who did not make a formal complaint to the complaints processes coming before the tribunal and that people can have their issues addressed. In terms of why they would not have, many people felt they were deterred by the complaints processes which existed. Within a week or two, I hope to be in a position to sign the statutory instrument to sort out all of the legal rates. The judge will appoint a backup team and so on. We have provided for a three-year timeframe from the time of establishment of the tribunal to the completion of its work. I expect work to get off the ground in the next number of weeks.
