Written answers (Question to Public)

My Department currently has one Bill, the Public Sector Standards Bill 2015, awaiting Committee Stage. This Bill had been scheduled for recommencement of Committee Stage in the Dáil on 3 December 2019. However, this has been postponed by the Joint Committee on Finance, Public Expenditure and Reform, and Taoiseach. The Committee informed me on 25 November 2019 that it will be in touch further when it is possible to allocate the Bill a revised date in the Committee’s meeting schedule.

The Deputy may also wish to note that once the Appropriation Bill 2019 has been approved by Government, it will go through all stages in the Dáil on the same day.
