 14.  Deputy Martin Ferris Information on Martin Ferris Zoom on Martin Ferris  asked the Minister for Education and Skills Information on Ruairí Quinn Zoom on Ruairí Quinn  if he will revisit his decision to exclude Bethany Home, Dublin, survivors from a State redress mechanism in view of the deluge of information that is now in the public domain detailing the State’s oversight and involvement in the institution. [2954/12]

Minister for Education and Skills (Deputy Ruairí Quinn): Information on Ruairí Quinn Zoom on Ruairí Quinn Following my meeting with representatives of the Bethany Home Survivors Group last year, I reviewed the relevant papers in relation to the Home. Having taken all the circumstances into account, I found no basis to revisit the decision not to include the Home within the Residential Institutions Redress Scheme. That remains the position.
