In accordance with the recommendations of the Independent Monitoring Group's report, "Response to the Challenge of a Workplace", a review group was established in February this year to review progress within the Defence Forces on the implementation of the recommendations of the original Doyle report. The group is working under the chairmanship of Dr. Doyle and includes representatives of military management, PDFORRA, RACO and my Department. Two meetings have been held to date.
