132. Deputy Pearse Doherty asked the Minister for Justice and Equality if she will direct the Property Services Regulatory Authority to reply to a complaint (details supplied); and if she will make a statement on the matter. [18815/15]


Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Frances Fitzgerald): I wish to inform the Deputy that I have no function or responsibility in relation to the matter raised.
The Property Services Regulatory Authority was established on 3 April 2012 pursuant to the Property Services (Regulation) Act 2011. Section 9(3) of the Act specifies that the Authority is independent in the performance of its functions. Accordingly, it would not be appropriate for me to intervene in relation to any individual case.
