It's a sentiment pretty much as old as politics itself. Dáil veterans used to lampoon it as: "We need a minister for Leitrim because Leitrim will never get anything until it gets its own minister."

So, when there's a big problem in any given sector, we reach for the "give it a minister all of its own" response. It doesn't often change very much - but it can take down the political heat for a time.
