The Health Service Executive has said the Clinical Review into the death of Savita Halappanavar has been given to the legal representative for her husband Praveen.

The report will be published on 13 June.

Mrs Halappanavar was 17 weeks pregnant when she died last October at Galway University Hospital following a miscarriage.

Earlier, Gerard O' Donnell, solicitor for Mr Halappanavar said he had yet to be furnished with a copy of the review.

Mr O'Donnell said that before publication, he wanted to be able to prepare Mr Halappanavar, who in turn wants to prepare his family.

The solicitor said it was important given the sensitive matters concerning Mrs Halappanavar.

Mr O'Donnell also said it would also have been useful to have met the Minister for Health, who has the report and to hear his views.
