Clarification of Article Printed in Irish Times on 30th June 2015

An article in today’s Irish Times “State concerned about “lone wolf” terrorist attacks” incorrectly stated that a draft White Paper on Defence is due to go before cabinet today.

In commenting on the article the Minister for Defence stated “I would like to clarify that there were no plans to bring the draft White Paper on Defence to Government today. While the draft is at a very advanced stage it has not been finalised.”

A Dáil session on the forthcoming White Paper is scheduled for 9pm today (30th June 2015). This will provide the Minister for Defence an opportunity to make a statement on the forthcoming White Paper and a final opportunity for inputs ahead of the Minister bringing the White Paper to Government for consideration, which he hopes to do in two weeks time.
