Labour Party Leader Brendan Howlin has welcomed the news that the Minister for Justice has held discussions with the Attorney General on progressing a Commission of Inquiry on Bill Kenneally, but said the meeting with victims should happen within the next two weeks.

Deputy Howlin said:

"I wrote last week to both Minister for Justice Flanagan and the Taoiseach asking that they meet with the victims and the Attorney General to find a way to address the Minister's concerns.

"I am delighted that the Minister has now opened discussions with the Attorney General and has agreed to meet with the victims.

"It is now essential that this meeting happens quickly, and certainly within the next two weeks."
