Written answers (Question to Justice)

I can advise the Deputy that while I am aware of the organisation’s concerns in relation to this particular issue, the matter is outside of my remit as Minister for Justice and Equality.

As my Department has no function in the matter, I would encourage the organisation in question to raise this matter directly with the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht who will be better placed to address any concerns they might have.
