As the Deputy states in his question, the video games which underpin e-sports are generally developed and run by the sector itself through video game studios. The development of and promotion of the sector are a matter for the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment.

My Department has no plans to introduce regulation for the e-sport sector as we have no role or remit in relation to e-sport.
