Magdalene compensation Bill falls short, says survivors group

Justice for Magdalenes has criticised recommendations in draft legislation which sets out their compensation entitlements for treatment they received in the laundries.

The group is unhappy at the delay in publishing the legislation.

It says the medical care listed is restrictive and falls short of what was recommended by Judge Quirke.

Justice for Magdalenes says it will work with TDs and Senators to ensure the Bill is amended to honour the Government's committments to Magdalene survivors.
