The Taoiseach has said he does not want to rule out the possibility of setting up further inquiries into clerical abuse.

Answering questions in the Dáil today, Bertie Ahern said a decision on such a move would come after the national audit of childcare standards in dioceses.

Referring to the Ferns Report into clerical abuse, Mr Ahern said the Government had to be sure this could never happen again and that children would be safe from abuse.
