Written answers (Question to Rural)

My Department’s ICT User Policy provides for access to the Department's e-mail system and its authorised internet services, as the only methods approved for the issue or publication of official Department information in electronic format. The policy is made available to all staff and is published on the Department's Intranet site.

Official email business, in my role as Minister, is conducted via Department and Oireachtas email accounts.
