Written answers (Question to Health)

As all members of the Board of the Health Service Executive are public servants, they are precluded from claiming fees under the "one person one salary" principle. This precludes public servants acting as chairpersons or directors of State-sponsored bodies from receiving additional remuneration for undertaking such duties. In relation to the Irish Blood Transfusion Service Board, the following table shows the fees paid.
