Govt to reveal who will lead mother and baby home inquiry

The Tuam mother and baby home.

The Government will today announce who will lead the inquiry into Ireland's mother and baby homes.

They came back under the spotlight in recent months after fresh controversy over a grave in Galway where it is thought hundreds of children may be buried.

A Commission of Investigation is being set up, but the terms of reference for that inquiry will now not be known until the autumn at the earliest.

An inter-departmental report, which was drawn up to help decide those terms, is also expected to be published today.
