Written answers (Question to Employment)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 639 and 640 together.

In the interest of transparency, I intend to publish the Data Protection Commission’s Report on the Public Services Card and my Department’s Summary Response to the Report later today – Tuesday 17th September.

I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
