I propose to take Questions Nos. 42 to 44, inclusive, together.

The Government recognises the importance of regular and open engagement with all sectors of society including the social partners. There are many different fora in place for these conversations, including the National Economic Dialogue, the National Economic and Social Council, and various Sectoral Groups. There is also regular bilateral engagement at official and Ministerial level. Such engagement is particularly important as we steer our way out of the pandemic, rebuild our economy and support communities that have been severely impacted by COVID-19.

Most recently, I chaired a meeting of the Labour Employer Economic Forum (LEEF), with attendance from employers and trade unions, which took place in February. A further meeting of LEEF will take place shortly. In addition, in the coming weeks, I will be meeting with the Environmental Pillar, the Community and Voluntary Pillar, and the Farming and Agriculture Pillar.
