A Kildare TD says adopted people, and survivors of mother and baby homes, must be given access to their own information.
Its in the wake of the publication of the Mother and Baby Homes Commission of Investigation report.
9,000 children died at 18 homes examined between 1922 and 1998.
The majority of these institutions were run by religious orders.
Labour TD, Alan Kelly, has proposed legislation to ensure religious orders contribute to any redress schemes.
Catherine Murphy, who is a member of the Public Accounts Committee, supports this, and says that orders' engagement with redress schemes established in the wake of the Ryan Report was full of "rethinking".
But, the Social Democrats Co-Leader says, the most pressing matter arising from the report is the need to give survivors access to their records.
Deputy Murphy joined Clem Ryan on this morning's edition of the programme.
