Order of Business - 4th June.

I support the call made last week by Senator Hildegarde Naughton who called for an inquiry into the recent worrying revelations of the deaths of some 800 infants between 1925 and 1961 in a mother and baby home in Tuam in County Galway. I know considerable momentum has gathered around this as local historians have uncovered appalling information about these deaths and the way in which they went unreported and were hidden. We need to know more about what has happened there.
