At the outset, I wish to acknowledge the seriousness of the issues raised in the recent RTE Investigates programme.

I also want to assure the House and the families of children with special educational needs that my Department has never unlawfully collected or passed on the sensitive educational information of children involved in court cases.

My Department is currently reviewing case files in this matter with a view to establishing the facts of how these cases were managed. The outcome of this review will inform further action.
