The power to transfer functions from one Minister/Department to another and to rename Departments is vested in the Government under section 6 of the Ministers and Secretaries (Amendment) Act 1939, Subsections 6(1)(c) and 6(1)(d) of the Act enable the Government to transfer functions from one Minister or Department to another by a Transfer of Functions Order while subsections 6(1)(a) and 6(1)(b) authorise the Government to change the name and title of Ministers and Departments, also by Order.

The Deputy may wish to be aware that the Order transferring functions to this Department has not been formally ratified at Government level. As a consequence, the organisational chart for Department of Children and Youth affairs will be updated to reflect the new structure as and when the functions legally transfer to the Department.

In the interim, the Deputy may wish to access https://whodoeswhat.gov.ie/ for relevant information. Once the formalities have been completed, the whodoeswhat website will be updated to reflect revised organisational structures.
