Deputy Fergus O’Dowd Deputy Fergus O’Dowd
Deputy Fergus O’Dowd asked the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform if he will cite any and all examples whereby decisions made have been overturned or amended under section 22 of the Interpretation Act 2005; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [17862/07]
Deputy Brian Lenihan Deputy Brian Lenihan
Deputy Brian Lenihan: There are innumerable instances of powers of various kinds conferred on me, as Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform, by enactments, and such powers are exercised daily by or on my behalf. It is also part of my normal day-to-day work and that of my Department that individual exercises of such powers are in some instances the subject of a fresh exercise of those powers to reverse or vary in some other way a decision. It would involve a disproportionate expenditure of time and resources to attempt to enumerate such instances.
