Written answers (Question to Minister for Children and Youth Affairs)

The issue of surrogacy is a cross Departmental one involving the Departments of Justice and Equality, Foreign Affairs and Trade and Health as well as my own Department. In respect of the specific matter raised I have been informed by the Department of Foreign Affairs that, as this matter is currently before the courts, it would be inappropriate to discuss the case further at this time.
