I propose to take Questions Nos. 71 and 72 together.

My Department is working with the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade to agree the details of functions to be transferred to my Department, in line with the Taoiseach’s announcement of changes to Department structures.

This will inform the delegation of functions to the Ministers of State in my Department.

I will request the Government to approve orders delegating functions to the Ministers of State shortly, once the details are finalised.
