The table attached sets out the number of protected disclosures made to my Department in each of the past five years and to date in 2021.  I am informed by my officials that in four of these, the matters raised were not the subject of areas of responsibility of the Department and had been also separately raised with the relevant Government Department. 

The nature of the protected disclosures related to operational issues of the Department and its Offices. 

The Act imposes an obligation to protect the identity of the discloser and in this regard information cannot be given on individuals who have made disclosures.
