UK Magdalenes accept apology delay

Taoiseach Enda Kenny's decision not to apologise immediately for State involvement in the Magdalene Laundries was endorsed by the UK-based survivors group, who met the Taoiseach at the Irish Embassy in London yesterday.

However, the women made it clear that a full apology is expected when he speaks in the Dail next week, plus details about payment for their years of unpaid labour and compensation and funding for welfare services.
