Question:

106 Ms Shortall asked the Taoiseach if he has yet received the Barron inquiry report into the Dublin and Monaghan bombings; when he expects it to be published; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [10949/03]

I have not yet received the report of the commission of inquiry. The commission is engaged in writing its report, which Mr. Justice Barron expects to complete in the near future. It is envisaged that the report prepared by Mr. Justice Barron will be submitted to the Joint Oireachtas Committee on Justice, Equality, Defence and Women's Rights, as originally agreed with Opposition parties and the group, Justice for the Forgotten. The Government envisage that the committee would, in public session, consider the follow-up to the report.
