In a response to the Final Report of the Mother and Baby Home Commission of Investigation…
…Children’s Minister Roderic O’Gorman launched a consultation process seeking submissions on what should be included in a Restorative Recognition Scheme, as ‘reparation for the wrongs that occurred’ in the homes.
To help with this, Minister O’Gorman has employed the services of Oak Consulting, a Wexford based group specialising in conflict resolution.
‘To me, it’s another delaying tactic, outsourcing what the Government themselves should do, with the opportunity for them to look perplexed when it goes pear-shaped. They haven’t a notion of adopting the recommendations – i.e. they will continue to deny as many women and children redress as they possibly can.’
