This question is not proper to the Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection as it is asking for an estimate of the impact of a policy on carbon emissions which is not in her remit.

More broadly, flexibility in relation to working arrangements falls under the remit of the Minister for Justice and Equality, while the Minister for Business, Enterprise and Employment has a role in policy development in relation to the 'Future of Work' initiative.
