The Deputy will be aware that Standing Order 164A of Dáil Eireann Standing Orders 2016 and Standing Order 168 of Seanad Eireann Standing Orders 2017 provide that "twelve months following the enactment of a Bill, save in the case of the Finance Bill and the Appropriation Bill, the member of the Government or Minister of State who is officially responsible for implementation of the Act shall provide a report which shall review the functioning if the Act and which shall be laid in the Parliamentary library."

The information requested by the Deputy of the date of publication and details of post-enactment reports published by my Department since March 2011 is set out below in tabular form.

I can further confirm to the Deputy that work is underway in my Department to complete such reports on a number of other Acts.
