[50151/21]

Answer

Minister for Justice (Deputy Heather Humphreys): As the Deputy will appreciate, as Minister for Justice I do not have responsibility for the Dáil Éireann Standing Orders nor relevant parliamentary procedures. Accordingly, as Minister, I cannot comment on these matters.
If the Deputy would like to write to me with some clarification about this matter, I will be pleased to consider any aspects that fall within my remit.
