284.

The Deputy will be aware that my private office has been in contact with her office seeking clarification on this Question.  Clarification was received late this morning that the Question wrongly refers to a Minister of State in my Department having made a statement; I now understand that the statement was in fact made by Minister of State O'Donovan on foot of his position in the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform.  As the Deputy will be aware the Bill in question is the responsibility of that Department and I would therefore refer the Deputy to the reply being given today on the matter by the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform.
