Adjournment Matters. - Morris Tribunal.


The intervention of Amnesty International is highly significant and very embarrassing. The fact that a respected international human rights organisation has deemed it necessary to make its strongly held views forcefully known to the Government must encourage it to respond positively with regard to the two areas which are of grave concern. I urge the Minister to bring an amendment before the Oireachtas to expand the tribunal's terms of reference as recommended by Amnesty International and put in place a scheme of interim payments to provide the McBrearty family with proper legal representation permitting it to appear before Mr. Justice Morris.
