Again, there is no ambiguity, nor should there be any, in respect of that issue. I made that abundantly clear at the time the relevant motions came before the House. The issues being covered by the tribunal are very serious, but we have already acted in respect of many of the recommendations of the independent review group, whose conclusions were quite shocking. Any incident of sexual assault or abuse is now immediately referred to An Garda Síochána. We took that decision very quickly in the aftermath of the independent review group report. There have been a range of other decisions in addition to that, apart from the establishment of the tribunal.
