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

As the Deputy will be aware, the position of CEO of Culture Ireland has recently been filled on an acting basis for a period of 15 months. The Deputy will also be aware that in the Government's Public Service Reform Plan of 17 November 2011, Culture Ireland is listed as one of the entities to be critically reviewed — in its case with a view to its functions being merged into my Department. My Department is consulting with the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform in this regard, with a view to the matter being considered by Government at the appropriate time.
