Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment FOI Application Form

Dear FOI Requester,

Extraordinary measures are being taken to support public services under severe pressure at this time and this will affect the Freedom of Information process in the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment.

Many staff in the department, including those in the FOI Unit, have been redeployed to support our colleagues in critical internal processes and to support other public service bodies facing severe pressure at this time.

While it is possible for the Department to avail of exemptions under the FOI Act to turn down requests or apply extensions, given the ongoing uncertainty in the State, I would ask that you understand the difficulties arising and consider refraining from submitting requests until such time as this crisis has passed.

Many thanks for your cooperation at this time and apologies for any inconvenience caused.
