Written answers (Question to Minister for Expenditure)

In answer to the Deputy's question my Department has no role to play in the matter of bonuses paid to senior county council officials or senior bank officials. These would be matters for the Department of the Environment, Community and Local Government and the Department of Finance respectively.

In relation to bonuses paid to senior official in semi-State companies while the National Lottery, which is a commercial State body, is under the aegis of my Department my Department has no role in relation to issues such as bonuses paid by the Company to its staff.
