The Government has this morning approved draft Resolutions to establish a Tribunal of Inquiry. The Resolutions, which accompany this statement, must now be approved by both Houses of the Oireachtas.
The Terms of Reference for the Tribunal of Inquiry are comprehensive and clear in their focus. The Tánaiste believes that what is now proposed reflects the will of the Oireachtas. Mr Justice Charleton will chair the Tribunal and is available to begin work this week. The Tánaiste has thanked him for agreeing to take on this role.
