Historical Institutional Abuse Consultation

Closes 10 Feb 2019

Opened 19 Nov 2018

Overview

The Executive Office (TEO) is seeking your views on the draft legislation required to implement a number of the recommendations in the Historical Institutional Abuse (HIA) Inquiry Report (the Hart Report).  

The Historical Institutional Abuse Inquiry Report was published in January 2017, shortly before the collapse of the Northern Ireland Executive.  Preparatory work around those recommendations in the HIA Inquiry Report which require a statutory foundation has been completed and a public consultation has now been launched on the following draft legislation:

  • a Bill for a Commissioner for Survivors of Institutional Childhood Abuse (COSICA);
  • a Bill for an HIA Redress Board; and
  • subordinate legislation dealing with the detail of compensation proposals.

Views are being sought on the draft legislation and and associated documents.  TEO is consulting on draft legislation so that proposals for the final legislation can be put to Ministers for consideration.  In finalising the legislation, TEO will take full account of the comments it receives during the consultation period.
