The previous Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform, now the Minister for Finance — good luck to him — received the Morris tribunal report on 24 April. It was published yesterday, which was statutorily the last day to do so. Was there a reason that it was not published before the statutory deadline was about to be reached? In view of the importance of this element of the Morris tribunal now being available and given that the Tánaiste is a Member from the county involved, can I take it we will have an opportunity to discuss this report in the House? Will she give consent to the new Whip to approve that debate? It is a matter of very serious import for the conduct of the Garda, for those involved and for ordinary citizens. I hope the Tánaiste will give consent to an early discussion in the House on this first element of the Morris tribunal.
The National Property Services Regulatory Authority was established in 2005 and was allocated a budget of €700,000 in 2007 and €930,000 in 2008. However, it cannot operate as legislation to give it power has not been brought before the House. When is it proposed to introduce the legislation giving statutory effect to the National Property Services Regulatory Authority?
What is the Tánaiste's view in respect of the siting of the Central Mental Hospital at Thornton Hall? Evidence is now very clear that this is the wrong thing to do. Is there a change of Government policy in this regard?
Now that we have a reformed or recycled Government, as somebody said yesterday, what is the position on the reintroduction of the long-term residential care services Bill? This was to be rammed through before Christmas by the Minister for Health and Children, who is not present. We were given consistent responses from the previous Taoiseach that this was on its way very shortly. However, there now appear to be some constitutional difficulties with it. It is a matter of very considerable import to thousands of people, as the Tánaiste well knows. Can I take it that we will have an accurate report as to when it will be introduced in the House?
