The new social inclusion strategy – ‘A Roadmap for Social Inclusion: Ambitions, Goals, Commitments 2019-2025’ – is being developed following consultation with relevant Government Departments and other stakeholders. It has taken some time to ensure that we address the multiplicity of issues raised in these submissions and to gather the facts in the areas covered by the strategy. The Roadmap is currently being finalised and it is expected that the new strategy will be published over the coming weeks.

I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
