Written answers (Question to Justice)

I wish to advise the Deputy that I have nominated two persons to serve in positions carrying remuneration, other than out of pocket expenses, on commissions, industrial, assurance, semi-State or other similar concerns. Details regarding these appointments are set out below.

On 15 August 2014, I appointed Ms. Mary Rose Gearty, SC, as the sole member of the MacLochlainn Commission of Investigation on a salary equivalent to that of a High Court judge.

On 9 June, 2015, I appointed retired High Court Judge Roderick Murphy to oversee the preparation of notification letters to complainants in the Independent Review Mechanism. Mr Justice Roderick Murphy is paid on a per diem basis for this role.
