Message to Dáil

In accordance with Standing Order 101, the following message will be sent to the Dáil:

The Select Committee on Enterprise, Trade and Employment has considered the Further Revised Estimates for the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment.

Under Standing Order 100(2), the message is deemed to be the report of the committee. However, given the size of the Department's Estimates and the range of functional areas and bodies covered by those Estimates, I believe the committee will want to engage further on a number of specific issues arising. For that reason, I envisage that the committee will want to engage further with the Department on some of the issues raised today, probably in the autumn session.

I thank the Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment, Deputy Varadkar, and his officials for assisting the committee in its consideration of the Further Revised Estimates today. Does the Minister want to make a brief comment?

No. I think that covers it. I thank members for their engagement and their questions. I know there were one or two things that I did not answer or did not answer properly. We have taken a note of them and will revert to the members in correspondence.

I thank the Tánaiste. That is much appreciated. I once again thank him for coming.

The select committee adjourned at 10.58 a.m. sine die.
