Written answers (Question to Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform)

I noted the views recently expressed by the President of the High Court in relation to televising court proceedings. However, the conduct of court proceedings is primarily a matter for the Judiciary and I would be open to considering any proposals made in this regard.
