Minister for Health James Reilly has said he will bring a memo to Cabinet next week on the policy issues involved in legislation on abortion.

Mr Reilly said he still hopes to have the legislation passed by the Dáil's summer recess.

He was speaking at Leinster House, where he was formally presented with the report of the Oireachtas Health Committee on its hearings into the A, B and C cases.

The 1,000-page, two-volume report contains the written and oral submissions made to the committee.

It does not make any recommendations.
