Joe Higgins: I am talking about the Prime Minister of Britain, who is not answerable to the House.

Dublin-Monaghan Bombings. (3 Feb 2004)

Rory O'Hanlon: I do not care to whom the Deputy refers. It is not appropriate to use the word "lie" in this House about anybody.

Dublin-Monaghan Bombings. (3 Feb 2004)

Joe Higgins: I will substitute "fraudulent claim" for the word "lie".

Dublin-Monaghan Bombings. (3 Feb 2004)

Rory O'Hanlon: Deputy, will you withdraw the word "lie"?

Dublin-Monaghan Bombings. (3 Feb 2004)

Joe Higgins: Yes, and I will say it was an utterly fraudulent claim, which is the same thing. Does the Taoiseach acknowledge that the relatives and victims attending and watching the sub-committee hearings are still of the opinion that they require a wider public inquiry and that alone should give serious cause for consideration of that course of action?

Dublin-Monaghan Bombings. (3 Feb 2004)

Bertie Ahern: I am aware of everything Mr. Justice Barron has said and of all the meetings which were set up. I have already answered questions on those matters. I am also aware that some people who have contributed to the public hearings have made comments on the issue of a public inquiry and on the form such an inquiry might take. There are serious, complex issues involved and the sub-committee's...

Dublin-Monaghan Bombings. (3 Feb 2004)

Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin: Does the Taoiseach not recognise that the negative view he expressed in regard to his expectation of further information or documentation being made available from the British side is, itself, something that will add to their resolve not to co-operate and not to provide further information and documentation? When our Prime Minister makes the statement that he has no further expectation of...

Dublin-Monaghan Bombings. (3 Feb 2004)

Rory O'Hanlon: The Deputy should confine himself to a question.

Dublin-Monaghan Bombings. (3 Feb 2004)

Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin: It is a question. I am asking the Taoiseach if he does not recognise that his statement could become a self-fulfilling prophecy. On the issue of the missing files, the Taoiseach has not confirmed whether any level of investigation prior to or since his becoming Taoiseach was undertaken in the Department of Justice, Equality and Law Reform, in regard to the copy files that have also gone...

Dublin-Monaghan Bombings. (3 Feb 2004)

Rory O'Hanlon: The Deputy is being repetitive.

Dublin-Monaghan Bombings. (3 Feb 2004)

Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin: ——that an investigation as to what happened to the files, which is a matter of great national importance, is now required? Will the Taoiseach please clarify this matter?

Dublin-Monaghan Bombings. (3 Feb 2004)

Bertie Ahern: I am sorry if I did not make that clear. I thought I did. When it became clear some years ago, the then Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform, Deputy O'Donoghue, instituted a full examination and investigation in the Department while the Garda Commissioner carried out an examination of Garda files. They did not uncover the whereabouts of the files. It was not established how, why or...
