The Commission investigating Mother and Baby Homes will not deliver its final report until 2020, after the Government today extended the Commission's deadline for another year.

Children's Minister Katherine Zappone has confirmed that the Cabinet has given the Commission until February next year to complete its report on a sample of eighteen institutions, including the site of the former Mother & Baby Home in Tuam where death records of 796 children have been found and where the commission has already discovered a substantial number of human remains.

The Commission published its fourth interim report today, in which it says that, since the Government's decision last October to conduct a forensic excavation of the burial ground in Tuam, a number of people have come forward with further information about burial practices at a number of the institutions under investigation, and these people are currently being interviewed.
