Written answers (Question to Housing)

My Department published its publication scheme in line with the Freedom of Information Act 2014 and the Model Publication Scheme guidance published by the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform.  The structure of the scheme is set out in the 2016 guidance.  The scheme is available at: https://www.housing.gov.ie/corporate/compliance/freedom-information-foi/requests-information-and-foi-publication-scheme.

While my Department does not collate the specific detail in the format requested by the Deputy, my Department reviews and revises the content of the scheme on a more regular basis than that required under Section 8(4) of the Freedom of Information Act 2014.
