Vol. 512 No. 1

Written Answers. - Report on the Judiciary.

John Bruton


11 Mr. J. Bruton asked the Taoiseach if he has received the recent report on the Judiciary by the All-Party Committee on the Constitution; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [25072/99]

I welcome the fourth progress report on the courts and the judiciary published by the All-Party Committee on the Constitution on Wednesday, 24 November 1999. The report recommends a number of changes to the Constitution which require serious consideration.

The crucial recommendations made by the committee relate to issues such as the establishment of a judicial council and the reform of the current impeachment procedure.

The report will be considered in detail by the Government at an early opportunity.
