Debate on the 8th Amendment to continue in the Dáil this morning


The Dáil will today continue to debate the recommendations of the Oireachtas committee's report on the Eighth Amendment.

The Government have agreed to draft a Bill that would allow a referendum on the Eighth Amendment to take place.

The wording of that bill has not been finalised.

Yesterday, the majority of speakers in the Dáil and the Seanad were in favour of repealing the amendment, according to RTE. 

Most agree to allowing unrestricted access to terminations up to 12 weeks.

The discussions will continue today. 

The Taoiseach is said to be awaiting the final wording of the bill before revealing his stance in the issue.
