asked the Minister for Finance when a full refund of PAYE income tax will be paid to a person (details supplied) in County Kerry.

I have been advised by the Revenue Commissioners that the taxpayer ceased employment on 30 September 1984, and submitted a claim to repayment of income tax on the grounds of unemployment to the inspector on 6 November 1984. The claim was dealt with on 16 November 1984, and a cheque in settlement was issued to her on 22 November 1984. When her claim was being processed the taxpayer was given credit for the full balance of tax-free allowances available to her for the current year, 1984-85. Accordingly, there is no further refund due.
