Written answers (Question to Finance)

I can inform the Deputy that €473 million was collected in respect of DIRT in 2011. However, I am informed by the Revenue Commissioners that their obligation to observe confidentiality for taxpayers and small groups of taxpayers precludes them from providing the information requested in respect of each financial institution.
