309.  Deputy Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin asked the Minister for Justice and Law Reform if he has received the second report on compliance with the code of practice on the display and sale of alcohol in mixed trading premises; if he will arrange for this report to be made available on his Department’s website; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

Minister for Justice and Law Reform (Deputy Brendan Smith): Mr Padraic White, Chairperson of RRAI, submitted the second Compliance Report on the Code of Practice on the Display and Sale of Alcohol in Mixed Trading Premises in November last. Following initial examination of the Report, RRAI was requested by the then Minister to submit proposals for strengthening the Code’s mechanisms for receiving and resolving complaints concerning infringements of its provisions. A response containing proposals for strengthening the Code’s complaints mechanisms has recently been received from RRAI and is being examined at present. It is intended to publish the second Compliance Report, together with details of the amended Code, in due course following a decision in relation to section 9 of the Intoxicating Liquor Act 2008.

Minister for Justice and Law Reform (Deputy Brendan Smith): In the time available it has not been possible for the Garda authorities to supply the information requested by the Deputy. I will be in contact with the Deputy when the information is to hand.
