I have testimony to the Oireachtas about a year ago where I said that there was no legal concept of "sealing" records under Irish law.

Here I say sealing breaches GDPR and we already have pretty good laws that balance access rights against other interests. I think I also said sealing would be unconstitutional because High Court would have jurisdiction over access
Here I said the legislation should expressly respect the right if access to personal data
Here I am saying attempted sealing will lead to a raft of pointless litigation with only one set of losers - the survivors
I know it's controversial, but I float the proposition that the legislature shouldn't pass laws that are obviously contrary to EU law
