Written answers (Question to Justice)

I can inform the Deputy that correspondence has recently been received in my Department regarding an allegation relating to the Irish Prison Service, citing the Protected Disclosures Act. This matter is the subject of a preliminary assessment at present, and as the matter is being treated as a protected disclosure it would not be appropriate for me to comment on the individual case.
