Official responsibility for matters relating to the establishment of a press council or press ombudsman is a matter for my colleague, the Minister for Justice Equality and Law Reform.

I understand that the Minister concerned has recently set out the position in some detail in a reply to a question by Deputy Sherlock, Parliamentary Question No. 48 on 29 January 2004.
