146. Mr. Kirk asked the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform when the inquiry into the circumstances of the death of a person (details supplied) will commence; if he is planning a public inquiry; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [13414/01]
Mr. O'Donoghue Mr. O'Donoghue
Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform (Mr. O'Donoghue): It has been indicated to solicitors acting on behalf of the person concerned that the Government is prepared to have an inquiry into the person's death along the lines of the inquiry which was established, initially under the late Mr. Justice Hamilton, into the Dublin-Monaghan bombings. To date that proposal has not found favour with the representatives of the relatives. In the circumstances, I am considering how best to progress the matter, and I shall put proposals to this end before Government as soon as I am in a position to do so.
