Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment
293. To ask the Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment when he will publish amending broadcasting legislation (details supplied); and if he will make a statement on the matter. [12625/19]
The proposed amendment to the Broadcasting, Act 2009 is currently at an advanced drafting stage. My Department continues to work closely with the Office of the Parliamentary Counsel in order to progress this work with a view to having the Broadcasting Bill published in Q2 this year. The matters in this amendment are complex and as such it is important that proper due diligence is done and that the legislative changes are robust.
