Department of An Taoiseach
The role of the Parliamentary Liaison Unit is to facilitate the enhanced relationship between the Government and the Oireachtas and in this regard its work is complementary to that of the Office of the Government Chief Whip in helping to ensure the implementation of the Government’s legislative programme.
In addition, however, the Parliamentary Liaison Unit works closely with Government Departments on their input to Private Members’ Business in both the Dáil and the Seanad.
The Unit also liaises on a regular basis with advisers and Departments with a view to ensuring that they are aware of Oireachtas issues and to assist them in engaging with the new processes arising from Dail reform.
