My Department was established on 19 July 2017. Since that date it has incurred expenditure in respect of legal fees of €2,655 in 2018, €1,855 in 2019 and €2,797 in 2020.

In 2018, the Department was assigned a designated point of contact for the provision of legal advice through the Office of the Attorney General, and it is intended that this service provides for the majority of our ongoing requirements in this regard.
