The recommendation of the outgoing Moore Street Advisory Group that it should be reconfigured to continue its work as a smaller, more focused body, was accepted by the Minister at the time. The outgoing chair was reappointed to lead the next phase and membership nominations were requested from constituent organisations, including relatives’ groups, the Oireachtas and Dublin City Council. That process was interrupted in the latter two cases by the General Election and until Government formation had been completed. However, the Advisory Group is now in a position to resume its deliberations once the outstanding membership nominations, which my Department has again asked for, are received.
