Written answers (Question to Communications)

Following legal advice, it is considered that the provision of the information requested would undermine and possibly breach any agreement that may have been entered into by my Department.

The information regarding the agencies under the aegis of my Department is an operational matter for each Agency. I will request the relevant bodies to reply directly to the Deputy with the information requested in respect of their organisation.
