A Fianna Fail Bill, which would allow mothers to share their maternity leave with their partners if they so wish, was debated in the Dáil last week.

The Bill was introduced by Mayo TD Lisa Chambers and her party colleague Fiona O'Loughlin, who say it's a progressive Bill that would allow parents to decide what works best for them in terms of raising their young children.

Deputy Chambers says the 26 weeks maternity leave could be shared by a baby's parents in some circumstances, for example where the mother is self-employed.
