A report containing proposals for a redress scheme for the survivors of mother-and-baby homes is set to be completed next week.

The Interdepartmental Group report is expected to submit its findings to Minister for Children Roderic O'Gorman in the coming days.

It is understood that the redress scheme could provide payments to survivors based on the length of time they spent in the homes.

Survivors are also likely to receive what has been described as an "enhanced medical card".

Once the Interdepartmental Group has issued its report to Minister O'Gorman, the matter would then go to Cabinet in July when the minister would bring a memo to Government outlining the scheme in full.

The legislation underpinning the redress scheme is likely to go before the Dáil and Seanad soon after the summer recess.
