The Dáil will debate proposed new laws on abortion for the first time later.

Health Minister Simon Harris got cabinet approval for the legislation last week.

He remains confident doctors will be able to carry out abortions from the start of next year, despite concern from practitioners about whether they'll be ready in time.

Last night the government announced Dr Peter Boylan will be working with the HSE to lay the groundwork for the new service.
