135. Deputy Róisín Shortall asked the Taoiseach the dates on which the interdepartmental working group on alcohol sponsorship has met since its establishment; the issues which it has addressed; and when he expects it to complete its work. [44768/14] 

The Taoiseach: The Interdepartmental Working Group on Regulating Sponsorship by Alcohol Companies of Major Sporting Events met on 10 December 2013, 28 February, 3 September, and 2 October 2014.   

The Group has been asked to consider the value, evidence, feasibility and implications (including the public health consequences for children and young people) of regulating sponsorship by alcohol companies of major sporting events, and to consider alternative sources of funding for sporting organisations to replace potential lost revenue arising from any such regulation.  

The Group will report its findings to the Cabinet Committee on Social Policy by the end of the year.
