From RTE News:
The Government has been accused of delaying the establishment of a special Oireachtas committee on assisted dying.
While a committee chair has been appointed – Independent Deputy Michael Healy Rae – the Government has yet to nominate its five TDs to the 15-member panel.
Deputy Kenny said: “It’s now two months since the Committee on Standing Orders and Dáil Reform recommended that the committee should proceed.”
He added: “I’m sure you understand that such a serious debate needs a serious level commitment from the government to progress this debate but that level of commitment in even establishing the committee is seriously lacking.”
Mr Kenny had previously tabled a Dáil motion on assisted dying.
The committee is to explore how assisted dying might operate in Ireland and what safeguards would need to be put in place.
