Written answers (Question to Taoiseach)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 18, 19, 22 and 23 together.

Cabinet Committee A was scheduled to have its first meeting of 2019 on Monday 1 July, which was unfortunately postponed due to the extended European Council meetings.

Cabinet Committee A covers issues relating to the Economy such as Jobs, the Labour Market, Competitiveness, Productivity, the Digital Economy and Pensions, and rural issues under the Action Plan on Rural Development, all of which are regularly discussed at full Government meetings where all formal decisions are made.
