Department of Justice, Equality and Defence
I can inform the Deputy that my Department has one Minister of State, Ms. Kathleen Lynch T.D. who was appointed on 10 March 2011.
Minister of State Lynch has general responsibility for equality issues in my Department but also plays a role, as required, in relation to all aspects of the Department's work, for instance representing the State at meetings here and abroad in the Justice and Equality areas.
