Written answers (Question to Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation)

I will bring the Deputy's suggestion to the attention of both the Minister for Finance who has responsibility for National Asset Management Agency legislation and the Minister for Social Protection who has functional responsibility for payment of statutory entitlements to those who are made redundant, including in cases where companies are insolvent.
