The Cabinet is due to sign off on a long awaited compensation scheme for the survivors of Mother and Baby Homes when it meets this morning.

It's understood the scheme is worth 800 million euro and will also include an action plan on access to birth records.

The Children's Minister Roderic O'Gorman will bring the proposals to senior ministers this morning and they will then be sent to survivors once approved.

The scheme was originally due to be finalised by the end of April.
