Minister for Health (Deputy James Reilly): The position is that following receipt of the third Compliance Report on the Implementation of the Code of Practice on the Display and Sale of Alcohol in Mixed Trading Premises, my colleague the Minister for Justice and Equality launched a public consultation process inviting views on the report and on the voluntary approach to implementing structural separation objectives in mixed trading premises preparatory to a decision on whether to commence the statutory provisions on structural separation in section 9 of the Intoxicating Liquor Act 2008.  

I understand that following examination of the submissions received in response to the consultation process, the Minister for Justice and Equality expects to be in a position to seek Government approval for proposals in relation to the display and sale of alcohol products in mixed trading outlets in the coming weeks.
