Written answers (Question to Public)

The Department of Public Expenditure and Reform has protected disclosures procedures in place that have been developed in line with the Protected Disclosures Act 2014 and agreed upon by the Management Board. Section 22 of the Protected Disclosures Act requires that annual reports be published in relation to disclosures received by the Department. This is done via the website. I can confirm that there were no protected disclosures received by the Department since the Act came into force in 2014.
