Written answers (Question to Jobs)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 115 and 121 together.

I understand from my colleague the Minister for Finance that he has been advised by the Revenue Commissioners that the number of companies that are incorporated here but non-resident for tax purposes is not available as they are not separately compiled. I have had no meetings with representatives of multinational corporations on the issue of the operation of Irish registered non-resident companies.
