I worked with the Minister for Justice for eight years when I was in Fine Gael. In fairness, she is a fantastic worker. I wish her and Paul the best of luck. I commend the Taoiseach on letting the House know as soon as possible the position with regard to the Minister taking leave.

What Deputy Bríd Smith said is important. It is important that we define the job the Minister for Social Protection will do. In fairness, having two senior roles could dilute the service. I would appreciate if the Taoiseach could explain exactly what will happen when the Minister for Justice goes on maternity leave.
