Justice minister Dermot Ahern will tomorrow publish draft legislation to strengthen the rights of homeowners to defend themselves from burglary and assault.
The legislation will be published alongside a report by the Law Reform Commission on the subject.
The report and draft bill will provide a legal framework to clarify and fortify laws on the level of reasonable force a householder can use in defence of their home.
