Written answers (Question to Housing)

The recommendations of the Citizens’ Assembly in relation to 'the manner in which referenda are held' are currently under consideration in my Department. When that analysis is completed I will bring the matter to Government with a view to the Government responding to the Houses of the Oireachtas in relation the recommendations concerned.

If a recommendation is being accepted, the response to the Houses of the Oireachtas will indicate the timeframe envisaged for the holding of any related referendum.
