As the Deputy is aware, having passed through all stages of the Oireachtas, this Bill was signed into law by the President on 17 March 2019.

 In accordance with Section 8 of that Act, preparations are in train to fulfil the obligations contained therein to present the relevant report to Dáil Éireann within the period of time envisaged under that section.

The Deputy will also be aware that, I have already commissioned a wide-ranging review by the OECD on SME and Entrepreneurship policies. Part of this extensive review is examining the provision of supports for indigenous businesses and how they are assisted by Government, Departments and agencies to grow. This report will examine the strategic framework and delivery system for SME and entrepreneurship policy in Ireland. The report will be published in Quarter 3 of this year.
