Freagraí scríofa (Ceist ar Taoiseach)

The tables below shows the number of times each Cabinet Committee held a meeting per month from August 2015 - July 2019.

Since I became Taoiseach I have held 32 meetings of Cabinet Committees. Cabinet Committee meetings allow for focused discussions on important matters, however the advancement of such important matters is not entirely dependent on Cabinet Committee meetings. Given their significance, these matters are regularly discussed at full Cabinet level and I also meet regularly with individual Ministers, or groups of relevant Ministers, to focus on particular issues, with a view to seeing how Government can best ensure the delivery of its priorities and commitments.
