Ceisteanna - Questions
On the GIS, who in the Taoiseach's Department now oversees the commissioning and production of television and radio advertisements generally for Government information campaigns? Is there political oversight of these advertising campaigns?
I welcome the news that the Taoiseach will be meeting the Irish Thalidomide Association tomorrow, 17 November. It is a long overdue meeting. Colleagues will be aware that I have circulated the text of a cross-party motion calling for action to be taken by the Government for the members of the association and their parents, and for the establishment of an engagement process to resolve all outstanding issues between the association's members and the health authorities. I hope the Government will move to act on these calls.
The Taoiseach is meeting the association tomorrow but I have circulated a cross-party motion and I would welcome support for that.
