Written answers (Question to Health)

Officials in my Department are undertaking the work necessary to facilitate the commencement of Parts 2 and 3 of the Children and Family Relationships Act 2015. A small number of technical and legal issues have arisen which require clarification, and it is important that these are resolved before Parts 2 and 3 of the Act are commenced. I hope to be in a position to lay the Regulations before the Houses of the Oireachtas as early as possible in 2018.
