Written answers (Question to Public)

My Department's FOI Publication Scheme provides information about the operations of the Department in an open and accessible manner on a routine basis, in line with Section 8 of the Freedom of Information Act, 2014. The Scheme allows for the publication of information outside of FOI where the provision of information is not prohibited by law. My Department is proactive in publishing such material regularly, which is reviewed on an ongoing basis to ensure new material is added as and when it becomes available. Suggestions for additional publications are encouraged and can be made by contacting my Department’s Corporate Office. Details of the material currently published by my Department in its FOI Publication Scheme can be found at the following link - https://www.gov.ie/en/organisation-information/60131b-foi-publication-scheme/
