Written answers (Question to Public)

On the Moriarty Tribunal recommendation in relation to Ethics and the Standards in Public Office Commission (SIPO), I am undertaking a comprehensive review of how ethics legislation should be reformed to provide a single, comprehensive legislative framework grounded on a clear set of principles. In that context I am examining the appropriate approach to the implementation of relevant recommendations contained in both the Moriarty and Mahon Tribunals.
