Written answers (Question to Transport)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 756 and 757 together.

The detailed information requested by the Deputy regarding CEO remuneration is available in the annual report and accounts of each agency. I can confirm, however, that in the light of stated Government policy no bonuses were paid to the CEOs of the agencies under the remit of my Department in respect of 2012.

The remuneration of staff other than the CEO is a matter for the agencies themselves. I have referred the Deputy's question to the agencies for direct reply on this and also on CEO remuneration for 2012 as the annual reports for that year have yet to be published. If you do not receive a reply within ten working days please contact my private office.
