The recommendations in the Working Group Report, also referred to as the McMahon Report, in relation to standards in State provided accommodation are under examination by a sub-group comprising representatives from my Department, other State agencies and representatives from the NGO sector. The work of this group is still progressing. This is alongside other major projects, such as improved cooking and living facilities, which are being rolled out across a number of State provided accommodation centres.
