Written answers (Question to Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 156 to 158, inclusive, together.

I refer the Deputy to my statement and that of the Minister of State at my Department in relation to the motion on these matters taken in the House during Private Members' business on 22 and 23 May 2012.

With regard to the issue of making documents public, my understanding is that, in general terms, the release of such documents, if requested, would be the norm, following completion of the relevant deliberative processes.
