401. Deputy Martin Heydonasked the Minister for Justice and Equality for an update on the review of proposals relating to the structural separation of alcohol products; when she expects the proposals to be published; the expected time frame for their implementation; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [35987/15]

 

Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Frances Fitzgerald): The position is the Minister for Health and I have recently reviewed, in the context of the forthcoming Public Health (Alcohol) Bill, matters relating to the structural separation of alcohol products from other products in mixed trading outlets such as supermarkets and convenience stores, including the putting in place of appropriate future enforcement mechanisms. We intend jointly to submit proposals in relation to these matters to Government in the context of finalisation of the contents of the forthcoming Public Health (Alcohol) Bill.
