I propose to take Questions Nos. 482, 483, 484, 485, 486, 487 and 488 together.
I am informed by the Revenue Commissioners that 20 bodies, not 32 raised objection to inclusion of their names in a list of tax exempt charities which was recently made public by Revenue. A further 107 bodies agreed to disclosure subject to certain conditions being met. As the Deputy may be aware, the information commissioners will decide on the question of disclosure in these cases under the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act, 1997.
Where exemption is granted a body would qualify for relief from the taxes referred to in the questions where such liability was incurred. However, the Revenue Commissioners do not have information to hand as to which of the bodies in question actually availed of exemption from these taxes and they have advised me that this information could be established only by a detailed examination of the records of the bodies in question.
