Why was the Law Reform Commission Report 2015 on Search

Customer Question

Why was the Law Reform Commission Report 2015 on Search Warrants not passed into law?

1​. I regret to say that there are many reasons why a Law Reform Commission Report does not get adopted into law. Generally, it is because insufficient resources are not devoted to implementing the Reports into law. Very many Law Reform Commission Reports never get implemented into law because there is insufficient push on in the Attorney General's Office to draft legislation to implement it. When it is a technical report such as on Search Warrants, there is not the political capital or 'votes' in the legislation for the drafting of legislation to feature on the Government agenda. This was the case with the Report on Search Warrants.

2​. The recent Fine Gael Programmes for Government have not featured Search Warrants as an issue on their agenda. Essentially, there has not been the political will for the Government to devote time and attention to passing legislation on the issue of Search Warrants.
