Mother & Baby homes records – why lock them away?


Leo Varadkar and cabinet Ministers are prepared to disrespect the survivors of Mother and Baby Homes, and the Seanad into the bargain, by rushing through legislation with indecent haste. The proposed laws would mean the records from these homes would be put beyond proper scrutiny for 30 years. The survivors are outraged, as am I. I spoke about this in the Dáil today.
