130. Deputy Mattie McGrath asked the Minister for Justice and Equality the status and number of legal representatives his Department has engaged in the appeal of a judgment (details supplied) in the Supreme Court. [10366/18]
Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Charles Flanagan): I am informed by the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service (INIS) of my Department that three Junior Counsel and three Senior Counsel are engaged in the appeal of this judgment which is before the Supreme Court. While this was an immigration related case, it had wider implications involving a number of Departments and agencies. The level of representation in any particular case is a matter for the Office of the Attorney General.
