Dáil debate on Tuam mass grave delayed due to near empty chamber

Galway Bay fm newsroom – A Dáil debate on the discovery of human remains at the mother and baby homes in Tuam was delayed – because not enough TDs showed up.

It’s the second day running that the Dáil has been delayed in reaching the minimum number of 20, required to begin a debate.

Yesterday there was a similar 10-minute delay in the debate surrounding the terms of the Grace case.

When the debate did get underway, children’s minister Katherine Zappone said she would consider expanding the inquiry to cover other mother and baby homes.
