The first is the original request from the Department, and is closing on 31th Jan 2015.

Secondly, David Staunton TD & chairman of the Justice committee  has also asked all interested parties to provide a submission to the Justice Committee within the Oireachtas on this subject.

It is important that we send submissions to both the Justice Department, and the Justice Committee.

We would encourage everyone to complete their submissions as soon as possible – please don’t wait for the last minute.

Hope this clears up the dates and requests for everyone.

Submission Form

Per advice from Firearms Committee, they have recommended we do not provide templates to complete, rather they would prefer: ” It is essential that submissions are concise and to the point. Submissions should address only issues related to the Review and should not contain any unnecessary or superfluous material that does not relate directly to the subject. If reference is made to other publications, a link to this publication is sufficient and it is not necessary to send these as separate attachments. Pages in submissions should be numbered.”
