I will meet the man as soon as I possibly can. As this is a very important issue, I will certainly meet early next week, if that would suit the Senator. I would be delighted to do that.

There are a couple of points I need to make on behalf of the Department. I am told the Department was not involved in any contractual arrangement in this particular case and the Employment Appeals Tribunal did not bring the matter to the Department's attention at any stage, as the Department was not a party to the proceedings or the contractual matters thereunder.

I will take into consideration the proposals the Senator has made and will go back to the Department with them. There may be something I might be able to do, there may be something I am missing out on that might come to light when I meet the family next week with the Senator.
