I propose to take Questions Nos. 219 and 220 together.

The HSE commissioned the National Independent Review Panel to carry out a review of a residential service for adults with a disability.  The review report, the Brandon Report, focuses on matters of a sensitive nature, and how they were managed.

 The HSE has developed a publication plan which it will implement once a decision on the date of publication of the report’s executive summary is finalised.  It is important to note that this publication plan will require briefings to families in the first instance and the provision of appropriate supports.

The HSE has been requested by An Garda Síochána not to publish any report at this time.  

I will continue to engage with the HSE and its Board on this matter in the weeks ahead.

Question No. 220 answered with Question No. 219.
