Apologies if this is wrong thread!!
resurrecting the dead here!!
can anyone tell me, is a ministers office bound by any rules about replying to queries by email?
i wrote to Eoghan Murphys office on 31/10/2017
I received a reply saying
"I have been asked by Mr Eoghan Murphy, T.D. Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government, to acknowledge receipt of your recent email in connection with your housing situation. The matter is receiving attention, and a further response will be issued shortly"
I followed up in Feb asking could they define "shortly". Nothing since. Does he have to reply within a certain time frame or is the above all his office is bound by?
