The deadline for submissions on the General Scheme of a Certain Institutional Burials (Authorised Interventions) Bill has been extended to Friday, 24 January.

The purpose of the general scheme of the Bill is to provide the statutory basis and framework under which Government may decide to authorise interventions at certain sites where manifestly inappropriate burials have taken place associated with institutions operated by or on behalf of the State or in respect of which the State had clear regulatory or supervisory responsibilities. The Committee on Children and Youth Affairs is inviting interested groups and individuals to make written submissions on the general scheme of the Bill and will consider any suitable submissions it receives before the deadline date.
