398. To ask the Minister for Health if consideration will be given to the suggestion by an organisation (details supplied) that small convenience stores and newsagents, due to not having click and collect facilities, be permitted to sell all goods they have stocked during the past 12 months through levels 4 and 5 restrictions once their turnover does not exceed an agreed amount and-or the retail space of their store is not greater than an agreed size; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [39450/20]
The Deputy should note that the issue referred to in the question relating to small convenience stores and newsagents, being permitted to sell all goods through levels 4 and 5 restrictions is a matter for the Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment.
