Written answers (Question to Justice)

I refer the Deputy to the reply to Parliamentary Question No. 84 of 7 February provided by my colleague Richard Bruton, Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation.

Should the Deputy wish to ask a specific question on this matter that falls within my area of responsibility, I would be pleased to provide details on that matter.
