The Minister will notice the amendments I tabled on Committee Stage, and which Senator Ruane proposed on my behalf, were not resubmitted on Report Stage. That was also with regard to respecting the particular purpose of this Bill.

However, I hope there may be opportunities to engage on those issues that are of great importance such as forensic accountancy and the related economic issues. The Bill relates to places of work and flags and touches on issues of economic exploitation and expropriation that are part of the institutional abuse landscape.

On Committee Stage, I referred to Bethany Home which is an ongoing concern.
