Dáil Eireann Debate
180. Deputy Denis Naughten asked the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform further to Parliamentary Question No. 202 of 3 July 2008, the progress to date in relation to same; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [34729/08]
Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform (Deputy Dermot Ahern): Further to Parliamentary Question No. 202 of 3 July, 2008 I can confirm that the legislative, administrative and operational/enforcement/monitoring measures outlined to deal with trafficking in human beings in response to that question are being progressed and/or implemented. An Awareness Raising Campaign will commence in Ireland later this month.
The position in relation to funding remains the same as outlined on 3 July, 2008 — funding for combating human trafficking activities is part of the general expenditure from the Department of Justice, Equality and Law Reform and Garda Votes and does not require specific earmarked expenditure.
