The Taoiseach: Information on John Lynch  Zoom on John Lynch  It is proposed to take No. 7 (resumed), No. 8 (resumed) and No. 9 (resumed).

Dr. FitzGerald: Information on Garrett Fitzgerald  Zoom on Garrett Fitzgerald  On the Order of Business, could I ask the Taoiseach when the Government propose to bring before the House legislation in respect of civil legal aid arising from the commitment entered into on behalf of the State in Strasbourg a short while ago?

The Taoiseach: Information on John Lynch  Zoom on John Lynch  The Minister for Justice will be bringing a memorandum before the Government shortly on this subject. I would hope to be in a position to make a more comprehensive statement on the matter in a few weeks. I could notify the Deputy in the meantime when that could be made. I might say in passing that it may not be necessary to have legislation. A scheme to implement the idea could be introduced without legislation. However, as I said, I hope to be in a position to make a fuller statement in a few weeks.

Dr. FitzGerald: Information on Garrett Fitzgerald  Zoom on Garrett Fitzgerald  I welcome the Taoiseach's reply because it is important that we be seen not to delay on a matter on which we have entered into an international obligation.
