837. Deputy Mary Lou McDonald asked the Minister for Justice further to Parliamentary Question No. 673 of 3 March 2021, if she will provide a reply. [17542/21]


Minister for Justice (Deputy Helen McEntee): The Deputy has requested a tabular breakdown of correspondence received from the Hickson Commission of Investigation.
My Department is in contact with the Hickson Commission of Investigation on an ongoing basis regarding various administrative supports and requirements such as payment requests, as well as other ad-hoc issues that may arise for the Commission.
As the Deputy will appreciate, to compile the information in the manner requested would be an extremely resource intensive exercise given the regularity and ongoing nature of communication between my Department and the Commission.
If the Deputy could indicate the nature of any particular correspondence which is of interest, my Department would be happy to consider such a request.
