All protected disclosures submitted to my Department are given due attention in keeping with the Department's protected disclosures policy and procedures and in accordance with the requirements under the Protected Disclosures Act 2014. Given that all protected disclosures must be treated as confidential, it would not be appropriate for me to provide this information.

Annual Reports detailing the number of protected disclosures received between 2015 and 2017 are available on the Department's website. The Report for 2018 will be published no later than 30th June 2019.
