Cabinet to discuss concerns on imprisoning people for non payment of debt

It is reported the Cabinet will move to address concerns over imprisoning people for the non payment of debt.

Ministers are expected to discuss recommendations contained in a Law Reform Commission report at their weekly meeting on Wednesday.

The LRC has suggested that attachment orders should be made on a person's salary or social welfare payments instead of a prison term.

It is thought that this would include unpaid water bills.
