Dáil Question to Dept of Justice on outstanding EU Directives

QUESTION NO: 131

 for WRITTEN on Wednesday, 11th December, 2013.

* To ask the Minister for Justice and Equality the number of EU directives related to his Department that have yet to be transposed into Irish law despite the deadline date having passed; when is it proposed that these Directives will be transposed; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

– Anthony Lawlor

REPLY.

My Department is responsible for one EU Directive that is overdue for transposition. This is Directive 2010/64/EU on the right to interpretation and translation in criminal proceedings, for which the transposition due date was 27 October 2013. Regulations to give formal effect to the Directive are being finalised and I expect to be in a position to bring these into force shortly.
