Answer

Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Charles Flanagan): The position is that, following the making of necessary Rules of Court, I expect to be in a position to commence all Parts, except Part 4, of the Civil Liability (Amendment) Act 2017 in the coming weeks. Part 4 of the Act, which deals with the issue of open disclosure of patient safety incidents, will be the subject of a separate commencement order by the Minister for Health.
