Dáil Eireann Debate
I understand that the Committee on Civil Legal Aid and Advice hope to be reporting to me within the next few weeks. I think it would be premature to make any further statement in relation to civil legal aid and advice pending receipt and consideration of the committee's report.
Mr. Quinn: Would the Minister accept that this is a very serious problem and, having regard to the reply to the previous question, would he not give a commitment at this stage that civil aid will be made available for family law cases, particularly cases revolving around the dissolution of marriage within the courts?
Mr. G. Collins: I would like to give a commitment to the House that the contents of the report will be examined properly and fully by me and that what ever decisions have to be reached will be reached by the Government.
