Written answers (Question to Culture)

Officials in my Department have informed me that the file in question will be considered for release this year as part of the annual release of files by the Department of the Taoiseach under the National Archives Act. Release of the file will be carefully considered by the Certifying Officer in the Department of the Taoiseach before the end of this year as part of the process of the annual transfer of files to the National Archives.
