I congratulate the Minister of State at the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment, Deputy Troy, on his marriage to his better half during the summer.

My question is to ascertain whether the Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment, Deputy Leo Varadkar, is satisfied that Irish food export companies are fully prepared for the changes proposed as part of the post-Brexit process, specifically in regard to products of animal origin and which are due to be introduced on 1 October 2021. I wish to know the steps taken by the Minister to assist Irish food export companies that will be affected by changes. Has his Department engaged with Enterprise Ireland on this issue? Will he make a statement on the matter? I submitted this question a week ago but I acknowledge that there have been changes in the past couple of days.
