Name of proposed Bill
Purpose of proposed Bill
|Children (Amendment) Bill 2014||
This Bill will amalgamate the children detention schools in the interests of cost/administrative efficiencies and the public interest. It will also provide for remission in children detention schools and a
number of technical amendments which will improve the workability of certain provisions. It will also incorporate a number of amendments to various pieces of legislation to remove references to the
detention of children in adult institutions. The General Schemes to provide for the various amendments were approved by Government in April 2013 and September 2014.
Child Care (Amendment)
This Bill will strengthen the legislative provisions for aftercare by amending the Child Care Act 1991 to place a statutory duty on the Child and Family Agency to prepare an aftercare plan for each eligible child.
The General Scheme was referred to the joint Oireachtas Committee on Health and Children for their consideration. Consideration is now being given by the Department to the recommendations of the
Committee with a view to finalising the policy and seeking government approval to draft a Bill.
