Written answers (Question to Taoiseach)

I normally sign all Government Orders. However, in answering this question I am taking it that the Deputy is seeking information only in relation to Statutory Instruments (SIs) for which I, rather than other Ministers, have primary responsibility for bringing to Government in addition to SIs that I and the Ministers of State assigned to my Department have statutory responsibility for in our own right. The table beneath provides the information requested in relation to such SIs since I became Taoiseach in May 2008.

The National Economic and Social Development Office is the only agency under the aegis of my Department but it does not have powers to make Statutory Instruments.
