442. Deputy Noel Harrington asked the Minister for Justice and Equality her plans to include the new Eircode postcode in all schemes and administrative roles operated by her Department; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [28319/15]


Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Frances Fitzgerald): The use of Eircodes will be included in the course of routine updating of my Department's ICT systems. Much of my Department's business in terms of correspondence and payments is carried out via email and electronic funds transfer respectively and will, therefore, be unaffected by the introduction of Eircodes.
