A special Dail debate is to take place today on the Garda Siochana Ombudsman Commission's bugging claims.

The statements are due to start at 5.15pm with Justice Minister Alan Shatter first to speak.

The debate will allow the minister to give an update to the Dail and give the opposition a chance to reply.

"The preferred option here would be to give over a slot of Government time after Order of Business," a source said.

Mr Shatter is due in the Dail anyway at that time for the Fines Bill.
