Written Answers. - Tax-PRSI Anomalies.

Ivor Callely

Question:

66 Mr. Callely asked the Minister for Finance if his attention has been drawn to the anomalies that exist in the tax and PRSI system; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [8667/96]

I presume the Deputy is referring to the interaction of the tax and social welfare systems. In view of the complexity of the issues involved an Expert Working Group on the Integration of the Tax and Social Welfare Systems was established in 1993. The group has already made two interim reports to the Government and most of the recommendations have been implemented. The final report of the group will be published shortly.
