The Dáil debate on abortion was cut short because not enough Government TDs were present when a quorum was called.
Independent TD Mattie McGrath called the quorum which requires 10 Deputies to be present. He said it was a disgrace that there were so few TDs present in the House for the debate on the Eighth Amendment to the Constitution.
