Written answers (Question to Finance)

I would like to remind the Deputy that the NAMA Advisory Group has been set up to advise me in the following areas:

- The strategy of NAMA.

- The appointment of directors to NAMA.

- The remuneration of senior executives in NAMA.

- Any further advice I may seek of them.

The group operates on an informal basis and reports directly to me. Each of the members of the group has specific and significant private sector experience.

I am satisfied that the NAMA advisory board is working effectively and there are no plans to change its composition at this time.
