I wish to advise the Deputy that I am not in a position to comment as these responsibilities have not yet transferred to my Department. These matters are more appropriate for the attention of my Cabinet colleague, the Minister for Justice and Equality.

The transfer of functions process is ongoing in this regard, which I expect will conclude very shortly. I look forward to engaging with the Deputy on this and related matters at that time.
