 REPLY.

The National Adoption Contact Register was established in 2005 to assist adopted people and their natural families to make contact with each other, exchange information or state their contact preferences.  They decide, through a range of information and contact options, how they wish to proceed.  The Adoption Authority of Ireland has responsibility for the operation of the Contact Preference Register. The Authority has stated that there are currently in the region of 7500 adopted persons and 3400 relatives registered and there have been 660 matches to date. Each "match" involves an adopted person and at least one natural relative; therefore, based on these figures the result is around 9% of adopted applicants and just under 20% of natural relatives have been matched. The Authority advises that this would be comparable with the 10-15% success rates reported in similar registers in other jurisdictions.

The Authority, the Health Service Executive and accredited adoption services routinely inform enquirers about the existence of the register and encourage anyone interested in tracing or gaining information to sign up.  I am conscious of recent media coverage of the issue of information and tracing and I would hope that this will encourage more birth mothers in particular to access the  Contact Preference Register and where possible to consent to the release of information.

To ask the Minister for Children and Youth Affairs what her interaction with Ombudsman for Children, Emily Logan, has been since receiving the internal Health Service Executive and Garda inquiries into the removal of Roma children from their families; and if she will make a statement on the matter. Mick Wallace. For ORAL answer on Tuesday, 17th December, 2013 REPLY. The Ombudsman for Children Ms Emily Logan has initiated an investigation of the actions of the HSE in relation to these cases under provisions of the Ombudsman for Children Act 2002. The Ombudsman for Children has also agreed to undertake an investigation of An Garda Síochána's actions, under Section 42 of the Criminal Justice Act 2007.

To ask the Minister for Children and Youth Affairs what her interaction with Ombudsman for Children, Emily Logan, has been since receiving the internal Health Service Executive and Garda inquiries into the removal of Roma children from their families; and if she will make a statement on the matter.

I can confirm that I have received reports in respect of each of the cases from HSE Children and Family Services. The reports have been referred by my officials to the Ombudsman for Children Ms Emily Logan, for her consideration. The Ombudsman for Children is an independent statutory authority and will independently assess the actions of the HSE.

In respecting the independent investigations of the Ombudsman for Children, which will now take their course, it would be wrong of me to comment in detail on the cases or the reports received from the HSE. I look forward to the conclusion of the process and to the independent findings of the Ombudsman for Children, once she reports on her investigations.

Good health is a result of proper food and hygiene. How can medicaments hels up? Circumstances that can influence your choice when you are buying medications are various. Below are basic reasons about cialis vs levitra vs viagra which one is better. Surely there are also other momentous questions. Choosing the unimprovable treatment variation for a racy disease can get really confusing considering the advantages and disadvantages of the existing treatment methodologies. When you buy remedies like Cialis you have to keep in mind about levitra vs cialis vs viagra. The most significant thing you must look for is which works better viagra or cialis or levitra. A long list of prescription drugs can lead to erectile dysfunction, including many blood pressure medicines, pain remedies, and most of antidepressants. Sometimes the treatment options may include erectile disfunction remedies or hormone treatments.
