Written answers (Question to Minister for Finance)

The priorities for my Department are set out in our Statement of Strategy 2003-2005, which was published in April 2003 and which reflects the goals and objectives published in the programme for Government in June 2002.

In accordance with the provisions of the Public Service Management Act, which requires that Departments publish a revised statement of strategy within six months of a change of Minister, my Department is currently revising its statement. This will continue to reflect the goals and objectives in the programme for Government, having regard to developments since the last statement was published, including changes in our business environment.
