There has been insufficient time to compile all the data in the time allowed and in the format requested by the Deputy. I have therefore asked my officials to finalise the compilation of the requested information and I will provide it to her. I understand that the Office of the Attorney General are currently examining the issue of whether details of professional fees paid to individuals can be disclosed in the context of GDPR.
