Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Alan Shatter): Information on Alan Shatter Zoom on Alan Shatter I can inform the Deputy that the Government has taken note of the Garda Inspectorate report, Responding to Child Sexual Abuse, and that the report and a document responding to the report’s recommendations were laid before the Houses of the Oireachtas on 1 February 2012. The report and the response document were also published on my Department’s website, www.justice.ie, on that date. I am grateful to the inspectorate for its analysis and recommendations which are focused on improving the investigation of child sexual abuse and better protecting children. The Government and I are determined to ensure an effective collaborative response to child sexual abuse is in place and the substantial progress being made in this regard is set out in the response document.
