Written Answers. - Task Force on Bullying.

51. Ms O'Sullivan asked the Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment when she will publish the report of the task force on bullying in the workplace; the reason for the delay in finalising the report; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [21331/00]

Minister of State at the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment (Mr. T. Kitt): While it was originally envisaged that the task force on the prevention of workplace bullying would report in March of this year, I have been advised by the chairman of the task force, which is operating under the auspices of the Health and Safety Authority, that it has not yet completed its deliberations. I look forward to receiving the report of the task force in due course.
