Ireland: Corporate Manslaughter Bill introduced in the Dáil Éireann

Among the Private Members' Bills introduced in the Dáil Éireann earlier this week was one that seeks to introduce a statutory offence of corporate manslaughter. A copy of the Bill, as introduced, is available here (pdf) and an explanatory memorandum is available here (pdf). The memorandum states that Bill is based on the draft Bill prepared over ten years ago by the Law Reform Commission and published in its Report on Corporate Killing (pdf).
