Written answers (Question to Minister for Social Protection)

The review is at an advanced draft stage and I expect it to be submitted to me for consideration during the Summer. It is my intention to engage in consultation with stakeholders before deciding on my response to the report. Any proposed significant changes to the operation of programmes will be a matter for Government. The report will be published when this process is complete, which I anticipate will be around October.
