Written answers (Question to Communications)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 406 and 407 together.

I wish to advise the Deputy that the information sought regarding payments made to CEOs and staff in the agencies under the aegis of my Department is an operational matter for each Agency.

All directions issued by the Government in relation to remuneration of CEOs in Semi State Companies have been brought to the attention of the relevant State Companies.

In so far as the Deputy’s question relates to staff subordinate to the CEO, these are matters solely for the agency in question.
