Answer to question on notice

Question No 662

MR GENTLEMAN: I seek leave to make a short statement in regard to standing order 118A and the query raised earlier on.

Leave granted.

MR GENTLEMAN: Earlier Mrs Jones asked me about question on notice No 662. I advised Mrs Jones that my office had contacted her office in regard to that question on notice. Mrs Jones said that my office had not. There are two emails that I would like to read into Hansard. The first one to Mrs Jones’s office, to the email address, was on 23 October this year. It stated:

Hi Liam,

Please accept my apologies on behalf of the Minister that QON662 which was due to Mrs Jones on Friday the 20th is now overdue. Our office has asked some clarification questions of the directorate, and as a result, the answer has been delayed. I hope to have this response this week.

Frances Bevan, Senior Advisor.

And then this Tuesday, again to the same address:

Hi Liam,

Just wanted to update you on this QON. Unfortunately, we have not been able to provide it, and the associated annual report hearing question taken on notice on the same topic to your office. Please be assured we are working to get these answers to you as a priority.

Frances Bevan, Senior Advisor.

We have contacted Mrs Jones’s office twice. I do apologise to Mrs Jones that the response to the question is late, but we are trying to get it provided as soon as we can.
