Written answers (Question to Employment)

No pieces of legislation or draft heads of Bills have been sent by my Department to EU institutions before their publication during the period of the Thirty-second Dáil.

In relation to the Miscellaneous Provisions (Withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union on 29 March 2019) Bill 2019, and Brexit Preparedness and Contingency planning more generally, the Government continues to engage with the EU institutions and other Member States to ensure a coordinated approach, where appropriate.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
