Close consideration is being given by Government to policy in relation to overseas travel, including to additional measures being put in place at airports and ports to strengthen our existing arrangements. Officials from my Department and from the HSE are working closely with counterparts in other Government departments in this regard.

The intention is that Government will make an announcement on further measures in this policy area in the coming days.

Question No. 1005 answered with Question No. 974.
