Labour minister breaks ranks to urge Government to say sorry

A LABOUR Party minister has broken ranks and said the Government should make a full apology to survivors of the Magdalene Laundries.

Junior Minister Kathleen Lynch said her "personal opinion" is there should be an apology.

"You have to accept that I can't speak on behalf of the Taoiseach. You have to accept that," she told Today FM.

"I suppose the Government will take that decision and I don't sit around the Cabinet table as I have already said.

"My personal opinion is that there should be an apology, but I won't be sitting around that table making that decision," she added.
