The Deputy will be aware that Dáil Éireann Standing Order 164A provides that, in summary, 12 months after legislation is enacted, a post enactment scrutiny report reviewing the functioning of the Act should be laid in the Oireachtas library.

I can advise the Deputy that to date, sixteen Acts for which the Department of Finance is responsible for, fall under this Standing Order. Post enactment scrutiny reports for all sixteen Acts have been laid in the Oireachtas library.
