Written answers (Question to Finance)

Neither the Department of Finance nor the Government were aware of the content of the recorded phone conversations at Anglo Irish Bank referred to in the question. The contents of the tapes were not raised with my Department by the Board of IBRC, I am not aware if Mr Dukes knew of their existence.
