Legislation to change radically Ireland’s direct provision system will be proposed today.
Independent Senator Rónán Mullen will call on the Government to establish female-only and family-only reception centres and grant the right to seek employment.
He said managing an asylum policy was never easy for any country but changes in the operation of the direct provision system were needed urgently.
