A report into burial practices at mother and baby homes is to be brought before Cabinet this morning.
The Irish Times reports that it's expected to focus on burial arrangements made for women and children who died while living in the institutions.
The fifth interim report from the Mother and Baby Homes Commission was received by Children's Minister Katherine Zappone last month.
The report includes extensive technical reports prepared in the course of the commission’s investigations into the burial site associated with the institution formerly known as the Tuam Mother and Baby Home and the commission’s assessment of burial arrangements in respect of a number of other institutions within its remit.
It also reports on burial arrangements in circumstances where the remains were initially transferred to educational institutions for anatomical examination.
