Written answers (Question to Minister for Finance)

As I have indicated in replies to previous questions on this issue, the interdepartmental report of the review group on the disabled drivers' and disabled passengers tax concessions scheme is under consideration in my Department. I am aware that there is an interest in the findings of this report but, as the report is a substantive one, it needs to be studied carefully. On completion of this process, I envisage that the report will be made available publicly.
