Magdalene survivors unhappy with mother and baby homes inquiry

A group representing survivors of Magdalene Laundries will today give their reaction to the inquiry into mother and baby homes.

The Justice For Magdalenes group says they are not satisfied with the terms of reference of the inquiry, which were announced by the Children’s Minister James Reilly just under two weeks ago.

The National Women’s Council of Ireland, the Council for Civil Liberties (ICCL), and Amnesty International will also participate in the event.

The group will also call on the government to implement all recommendations for a restorative justice programme for Magdalene survivors.

They have previously said that the medical care listed in draft legislation – which sets out their compensation entitlements – is restrictive and falls short of what was recommended by Mr Justice John Quirke.
