Written answers (Question to Taoiseach)

Following a Government decision in July, the Cabinet Committee structures were reorganised.

The Cabinet Committee on Social Policy and Public Services covers issues relating to Social Policy and Public Services including health and Sláintecare. The Committee last met on 10 September, 2019 and will meet again before the year end.

The Committee ensures a co-ordinated approach to the delivery of commitments in the Programme for Partnership Government, and provides the opportunity to shape proposals on issues such as health and Sláintecare; education; children; equality; social inclusion; Irish language, arts and culture; and continued improvements and reform of public services.
