The Government has agreed to the establishment of a Commission of Investigation into Mother and Baby Homes. My colleague Dr. James Reilly T.D, Minister for Children and Youth Affairs, is taking the lead in this matter. The scope of the Terms of Reference for this Commission is under consideration at present. The issue raised by the Deputy is among a number of matters that are being considered in this context.
