Children’s Minister Roderic O’Gorman Writes To Mother And Baby Home Survivors Confirming He’ll Seek Payment Scheme Approval Next Week
Children’s Minister Roderic O’Gorman has written to mother and baby home survivors to say he’ll seek approval on a payment scheme next week.
The arrangement is being put in place to recognise the ‘suffering’ people endured in the homes.
They will receive a lump sum and a medical card, according to the Irish Times, but it’s unclear if there will be recurring payments.
The move follows months of talks after the Commission of Investigation released it’s final report and carries a projected cost of about 800 million euro.
