Survivors To Be Given Access To Mother And Baby Homes Data

Survivors of Mother and Baby Homes will be allowed access their personal information.

Legislation was signed into law over the weekend which passed a database - created by a Commission of Investigation - onto Tusla, to help with its tracing efforts, while part of the database would be archived and sealed for 30 years.
However, the Attorney General says the rights of citizens may be affected by such a move, as GDPR says people should have access to personal information about themselves.

The Children’s Minister now says people can request personal information from the archive, but any data request can’t infringe on the rights of others.
The Commission of Investigation into Mother and Babies Homes is due to hand over its 4,000 page-long report to the Government tomorrow.
