Written answers (Question to Minister for Communications, Energy and Natural Resources)

The Houses of the Oireachtas is the primary body administering allowances payable to members, including Ministers and Ministers of State, and publishes a list of these allowances on its website www.oireachtas.ie. Any request for details of actual amounts claimed and paid should, in the first instance, be directed to the Houses of the Oireachtas.
