Written answers (Question to Social)

I have written to my colleague the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation on this matter. Since then my officials have met with officials from the Department of Jobs Enterprise and Innovation to consider the issues arising.

I expect that this engagement will continue with a view to bringing forward proposals for consideration as soon as possible.
