My Department is aware of the issue referred to by the Deputy. The matter is currently under consideration by my officials with a view to addressing the issues involved.

Separately, my Department has committed to a review of the decision-making process in relation to the examination of previous complaints on governance issues at the institution. The process of compiling the records in order to inform the review continues, however the process is significantly constrained in light of current restrictions on access to paper records held within the line section. However, it is hoped that the Department will be in a position to progress the matter as soon as possible in accordance with the recommended public health guidelines.
