I am asking for a status update on the review by the Department of the Minister of State, Deputy Pat Breen, and the review by the Office of the Director of Corporate Enforcement into the sudden closure of Clerys. The Minister of State will appreciate that it is now 15 June and that the company closed three days ago last year. We have just passed the first anniversary. Clerys was iconic and was trading on O’Connell Street in Dublin for 162 years. It had 134 direct employees and in excess of 300 employed by concessionaires within the store. The news was very disturbing across so many levels. The closure was even discussed during a recent Private Members’ debate. So many issues arise in regard to employment law.
